Ya I mean no one can say Romer is a cheap shot artist or has ever demonstrated any history of trying to hurt anyone. Sorry Vladifin, this is the Stanley Cup final and late hits, among other things... happen. I suspect you'd be just fine with the same hit had it occurred against Burrows.
Yeah, I know it's the Stanley Cup final, and that's all the more reason they should ALL play like they have a brain in their head so they're not kicked out of the game. ANY coach in the league would tell his guys that. Late hits happen throughout the season. Hello? And as for the same hit on Burrows? No I wouldn't be "just fine" with that, so stop trying to read my mind. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Bottom line? It was a stupid, out-of-control hit.
But you know what really bugs me the most about the Canucks? I thought you'd never ask. The arrogance. The "up yours" attitude even when they know they've done something stupid and suspendable (and not got called for it). And yes, I'm referring to the finger bite. Instead of just moving on and letting it go, they decided to come back and be all cutesy and coy and macho and DUMB. You gotta earn the Cup in more ways than one, Bubba.
Ya it really didn't look any nastier than many hits throughout the playoffs, less so even. I hope Hortan's Ok. Boston wanted to come out hitting hard, this was the result.. not good.
Not good? It was another out-of-control, stupid, ill-timed, cheapshot hit. Other than that, it seems to be pretty typical of the Canucks' play. (Other than the blatant arrogance, of course.) Even if your boys win the Cup, I fervently hope it comes back sooner than usual to bite you all in the ass. Horton is one of their better players. Who the hell is Rome?
I love the Burrows hate, just like I loved all the Bertuzzi hate when he played for Vancouver, makes these wins all that much sweeter. Don't be looking too forward to next season though, Canucks will still have most of their crew for the next few years so chances are good you'll witness your nightmare all over again as the Nucks make it two in a row
Probably be a good idea then if every member of every team - other than the Canucks of course - got tetanus shots. Or better yet, rabies vaccine.
And forget the Finger Thing. Maybe more useful would be brass knuckles that fit in hockey gloves to wipe the arrogant smirks off the faces of the Canucks.
Where do you think you are? The hfboards? This is letsgowings.com. The majority of "fans" here don't support the team unless they are winning in dominating fashion.
One thing I've never figured out about "fans" in general. I saw so much ripping and tearing of the Red Wings plus rampant sarcasm on this board last night, I could easily have been on the Sharks' board. Not just frustration. Real nasty, cutting, degrading remarks.
If all you can do is take their iffy play personally, as far as I'm concerned you're not a fan. You're a bandwagoner who's trying to look good via a team by riding on their "coat tails". And by god, if they don't play up to your standards, you're gonna lay it on. Well, f*** you, actually.
If you're a real fan, hell yes, you get frustrated. But at least some of that has to come from the fact that you hurt for the players if they're not doing well. There's GOT TO BE A REASON THEY'RE NOT PLAYING WELL. For instance if you watched Versus's feed of Franzen trying to make sharp turns then you gotta know he's hurting. HELLO? Meanwhile, I personally feel very bad for Cleary, and I would like nothing better than to see his game turn around. He.has.worked.his.ass.off.all.year. and for some reason he's pushing too hard.
I'm ashamed for some of you. You are letting your team down by your sophomoric, sarcastic commentary.
Meanwhile, we'll be leaving town for about three weeks, starting Monday morning. If by some sad and painful circumstance the Wings lose tomorrow night, there's no way in hell I'm coming back here, until it all blows over. There just doesn't seem to be enough of you left here who actually give a s*** about this glorious, historic and talented team.
Setoguchi, Setoguchi, with the puck he's pretty moochy, But he flails and he dives and he's really very douchey. He writhes and he jerks like some malformed hootchy-kootchy So enough of his antics, dice him up for Shark-type sushi!
