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?
He broke his wrist. Let me take a hockey stick and slash your wrists hard enough to break them and see how you react.
- In the NHL there is a undisputed tradition: the rookies dinner. Is it the same in the AHL?
– Of course, it’s the same. We played paintball, but the curious thing was that rookies had no guns. We simply run around, and other guys shot at us. We also had no defense. We were six, two of us dressed up as a chicken. With a big wing on the back.
How so? A winger is not typically as good defensively as a center. It's not his game. If you look at the other top wingers ranked around Ovechkin (guys like Jagr, Lafleur, Bossy), I don't remember them being Selke candidates either.
The team has failed because other than him, few guys show up in the playoffs. The Capitals historically are a bad playoff team. Apparently, one guy can't change that.
Well I have only really been a Wings fan and if Tatar or Nyquist or pretty much any other winger not named Franzen played like Ovechkin did/does they wouldn't be around. Two way players is in my opinion the only way hockey should be played and all the rest of those guys are one trick ponies who sit in the slot or on the dot most the game waiting for a good pass or cherry pick waiting for a pass to score easy. Just not my thing.
I hate the term offensive winger. I don't like guys who play half the game so they can go sit on the dot and score goals. I give him little credit considering his team has always been fail because their best player has refused up until now to actually play hockey.
