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.
Just listening to the NHL network fawn all over Tampa who hasn't won a damn thing in 10 years, talking about their experience and their speed. Just amazing to me. When the Wings are down they are too old, when it's playoff time the Wings are young inexperienced, and too easy to play against. I understand they haven't set the world on fire lately, but this team is a 100 point team. Please believe that the Red Wings aren't a good hockey club. They will run right through you.
Career 195 games 2.3 seasons of hockey. Plus minus 0. 10 goals and 37 assists. Usually its 3 seasons before a dman gets it. I said this earlier this year. Give him another year, you will see improvement. Major improvement.
