#2505590 How about some love for Howard!

Posted by Richdg on 03 April 2014 - 06:45 PM

Yes he had a bad first half of the year. But now he is healthy and playing much better. Last nights game was Classic Jimmy. The RW were outshot nearly 2 to1 yet win because he kept us in the game. Kudos Jimmy!

The Johan Franzen one looks lazy.

How does training avoid Darren Helm's wrist injury?  Or Pavel Datsyuk getting clocked in the jaw? Or Patrick Eaves taking a puck to the face?  I realize people are upset by the injuries and are grasping at straws, but there just isn't any solid evidence that the Wings aren't well trained. Just exactly how do you train to avoid a concussion?  Sure you can play smart to avoid open ice hits, but these aren't Eric Lindros/Scott Stevens type hits.  I think the increased awareness has quite a bit to do with more players missing due to concussions.  


See the word "GROIN" mentioned 1000x above.

The injuries in question aren't concussions or wrists or broken jaws.

 

They are muscle strains, groin pulls, etc. There is a difference....

Orpik released and cleared to travel with team.
So why was he taken off on stretcher? ....

Precaution probably. With all the concussions in sports it's better to be safe than sorry to quote an old cliche.

Wow. Some of the responses in this thread just...

This is the kind of s*** they need to get out of the game. Absolutely no place for it.

Edit: @penguins: ORPIK UPDATE: Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital where he is alert and conscious.

Uh...I think you are overreacting just a TAD bit.  lol

 

The guy just took his helmet off and put it on, no harm, no foul really. 

 

Uh...you took his post literally? lol

 

Helmet grab - Funny. Beer dump - just plain stupid.

Wish the players would have started swinging into the crowd like they did back in the day


Yes. That definitely would have made this situation better.

He looked much improved in the third period tonight




#2449984 Philly Capitals line brawl

They can't ban Emery for fighting. The Don Cherrys in the media who are fanatically pro-fighting would lose their minds. FYI, I want to keep fighting in the game, but this was a couple steps below assault (in a legal sense). 

 

Karma got the Flyers though. That punk Downie ate a great punch and hopefully Cashgrabvalier is out too.

I watched Emery's post game presser on the Flyers site to make sure I heard him correctly.  When asked about Holtby he says:
"He didn't want to fight and I said basically 'protect yourself' or whatever, ya know.  He didn't really have much of a choice."

To make it even more interesting, apparently Holmgren went down to talk to the team between periods.  Not too far into the 3rd period, all hell breaks loose.

Hey Shanny how about a suspension for Emery, what a tool.

Absolute joke. It's one thing when the goalies have a mutual agreement to have a go, but straight up goonery to skate the length of the flipping ice to pound a guy who wants no part of it.

Stay classy, Philly.
