In Topic: Philly Capitals line brawl

I like fights in hockey, but that goes with the assumption that the participants are willing combatants.  What transpired in the Philadelphia-Washington game, specifically with Emery charging down the ice and mugging Holtby, isn't something that belongs in the game.  Hockey's a violent game for tough guys, but nothing is less manly than throwing a temper tantrum on the ice because you stink.  Emery should absolutely have been suspended for that assault.

Don't know why they fired him after only three games in.  If you stuck with him through the offseason, training camp, and pre-season, then why would you pull the plug less than a week into the real thing?  The team will have to spend the next few weeks learning a new philosophy and/or system during this unexpected transition.  Holmgren continues to set this team up for failure.

The game was in Toronto, Carlyle saw that Scott was still on the ice, and he sends out Kessel... that was a very bad idea.  One of the coach's jobs is to manage the game, and that could have been a devastating mistake on his part.  I'm not defending Scott -- he's a big idiot, see? -- but I think Carlyle deserves some heat for not protecting his star player.  And if Kessel really was baiting him at all... well, hasn't he seen those Messin' With Sasquatch beef jerky commercials?  Yeah, bad idea.

Pretty sure the goal wouldn't be allowed anyway, as per rule 49.2: A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who kicks any equipment (stick, glove, helmet, etc.) at the puck, including kicking the blade of his own stick, causing the puck to cross the goal line.


Asked about the play after the game, Enroth said his initial reaction was that he felt Ranger was trying to embarrass him by showboating a bit but given time to think about it, it's not a big deal.  I mean, it's a pre-season shootout game... why should anyone actually be upset about this?

This is an interesting case, but I don't see how it can be enforced.  People should be held accountable for the things they say, even online, but because of the electronic shield of anonymity... what can really be done in a situation like this?  There's a difference between being subpoenaed at a physical address because, hey, you live there... but a private message on an Internet forum?  I have accounts on websites I've not visited in ages.  I couldn't make those rounds today if I wanted to.
