Ok, can someone explain to me--in a non-biased way without using the word "attitude" or any of its synonyms--why people seem to hate PK sooooo much? Because I *really* struggle to see what is so outrageously offensive about him. I get it--he's similar to B Smitty in that he has immaturity and impulsivity issues, but SO DO A LOT OF PLAYERS. I never see the same vitriol pointed in their direction. Would people seriously not want him on the Wings? Or is he only hated because he's on the Habs? This is an honest question, help me understand.
I hate him because he is a cheap shot artist and a diver. That's why I hate the entire Habs team. They dive constantly and then complain about it. It makes me sick to my stomach. Say what you want about Smith he doesn't dive and he doesn't cheap shot guys. How anyone outside of Montreal can stand Subban is beyond me.
A lot of nyquist and Tatars struggles I think came from being matched up against the stamkos line for much of the night. I'm sure that's a matchup cooper with stick with in tampa's home games. I would imagine Babcock will try to avoid that matchup and maybe try to match Datsyuk's line against them.
As far as the defense goes, someone said we played really bad defensively but I actually thought the opposite. We lost the puck possession game really badly and gave up a lot of shots but I thought everyone was in the right spots, clogging the middle and forcing outside shots that Mrazek didn't have any problems with.
The best news of all is that we have so much to improve but we still got the win. I don't think we'll see a game as lopsided as this one again
If you ever listen to Bill Cosby, he has a saying. Dont ever challenge worse. Things can always get worse
Pronger 2.0? How many times was Pronger suspended again?
Of course I'd be mad, but it was hardly the most vicious slash I've ever seen. 5 and a game was plenty, especially in the playoffs. And I'm sure it hurt Stone but he needs to toughen up. You'd think his hand was cut off with the way he flailed around.
I'm not even really a Subban fan. I used to dislike him, then saw CH24 and grew to like him more (or dislike him less) hearing him outside of the game. He's still immature but also gets more crap than he deserves.
What if someone ended a Red Wings career the way Abdelkader basically ended Lydman's with his charge a couple years ago?
What if someone suckerpunched Datsyuk the way Franzen has suckerpunched several players?
Its brutal. Not to sound like Don Cherry, but I miss the hockey that I grew up with. Subban would be made to answer for his cheapshots in the form of a fight. Nowadays these guys can het away with anything and that's why you see these insane slashes and hits from behind. There is no physical punishment to deter this garbage. It makes me sick.
