I disagree with you, I'm sorry if you want to watch two people just beat the s*** out of each other just to make a show watch UFC or WWF. I think fighting is part of the game but the token goon has no place in Hockey anymore, its time to get over it and move on. Its not fun to watch two guys fight for the sake of fighting, its adds nothing to the game and at best its a distraction. Now if its two players who in the heat of the moment or to protect a player and they fight thats great, that passion is what makes hockey great, not the goons who fight for their paycheck.
There is no more WWF.
The goons who fight for the hell of it are often in the heat of the moment and are trying to protect players. Gillies has done that numerous times. Every now and then, however, things get carried away. Only way to prevent these things is to get rid of fighting altogether. You can't have it both ways.
And Milbury beat a guy in the stands with hisf****** shoe. Who the hell is he to talk about shameful actions?
Yet despite the injuries, they're playing well all year.
I wish we could play like that when we have injuries. We only have Stuart out on defense, yet our defense looks like it couldn't stop a high school team from scoring.
Don't know what this will mean for them in the long run or in the playoffs, but they're playing through the injuries like a great team should. And playing better than .500 hockey since December, unlike the Wings.
