#2359358 2/21 GDT Columbus 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by rrasco on 22 February 2013 - 10:49 AM

So he didn't expect Tootoo to jump in, Toots pushed him off balance with the left and hit him with the right, as Dorsett was ready to go with E.

 

Again you said he didn't expect Tootoo to jump in, and seeing as the push and punch took about a second and a half you think it wasn't a sucker punch.

 

Agree to disagree on the semantics of sucker punch I guess.

 

This is not semantics.  It's fact.  These are sucker punches.

See I think Tootoo should have got third man in. Dorsett wasn't even looking at Tootoo and that is a Toots special, remember we all used to complain about those when he was a Pred.

 

If Tootoo and Wiz were scuffling in a pile and Dorsett sucker punched Tootoo you all would be screaming about how dirty Dorsett is.

 

BUT because Tootoo has a winged wheel on his chest all is forgotten.

 

I get that, but I don't personally subscribe to that logic.

 

So people don't think I am just anti fighter, I have a very similar issue with Mule, he is lazy and can be real cheap and dirty, I feel that way about him now, and I will if he ever wears another jersey (doubtful), regardless if he goes on a 10 game tear and gets 14 or so points, it just furthers my point he could play like that every game, but chooses not to!

 

It wasn't a sucker punch.  Toots grab him in the chest, pushed him back a few feet, then clocked him.  He might not have expected him to jump in, but he surely didn't get sucker punched.




#2359340 Tootoo

Ericcson didn't drop his gloves.  I'm not even sure he knew Dorsett dropped his yet.  E dropped one glove as a result of Toots jumping in.  I think Jordin knocked it off.  E didn't need to fight there, we need our D on the ice not the penalty box.  Dorsett is just pissed he got rocked by a guy half his size.

Per Tootoo, I had the same opinion the FSD guys did, he's the fighter, not Ericsson.  Ericsson could have handled Dorsett, but don't we prefer our D on the ice, instead of in the box?  Not to mention would if E got hurt, broke his hand or something?  We're already down enough D and we just lost Q as well (can't say I'm all that bummed, but we need bodies at this point).  Even at that, E didn't have his gloves off yet, Dorsett did and was winding up, E wasn't ready for it.  E only lost one glove and that was due to Toots jumping in.  He didn't sucker punch Dorsett either, he got in between, pushed him back a few feet, and clocked him good.




#2358607 Rumblings that 2014 Winter Classic will be Wings/Leafs

Posted by rrasco on 21 February 2013 - 01:40 PM

I'm confused too.  This is nothing new.  Besides the fact that I had the option to get a refund or retain my tickets for next year, there were several quotes that came out weeks or months ago confirming it would be played on 1/1/2014.  It's the rest of the schedule for the Winter Festival that I am anxiously waiting to be released, so I can plan my travel.

#2358498 From the Urban Dictionary

Posted by rrasco on 20 February 2013 - 10:59 PM

By the end of the season he'll no doubt be moved to #1 centre and play 37 minutes a game.  I'd still replace 12 goals with 12 scoring chances, cause he hasn't a clue where to go when Dats has the puck and is always surprised that it ends up on his tape.

 

I took a Cleary earlier.

 

You mean a Lebda?

I can vouch for the Stars' ice girls.  I always tell them they would look better in red though.




#2358231 Pavel Datsyuk dangles the entire Predators team!

Posted by rrasco on 20 February 2013 - 11:04 AM

I didn't get to see the third period last night, but why am I not surprised.  He was already having a really good game.  I thought he should have had 2 goals by that point.



NHL.com has a whole section of his highlights right now as well.

You didn't link to the video, just the 'quick picks' channel.




#2352982 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by rrasco on 08 February 2013 - 02:56 PM

I think the difference stems from in a fight you're squaring up on a level playing field to defend yourself and hurt your opponent.  You're also risking your own well being to do so.  Spearing someone in the gut doesn't risk directly risk your well being.  So it can be perceived as a cowardly move. 

 

What about boarding a guy who is clearly defenseless?  Franzen didn't have a chance to defend himself, why should Perron?




#2352225 Mrazek To Start Tonight

Posted by rrasco on 07 February 2013 - 11:43 AM

Yikes.  I know Babs was mulling over who to start tonight, but talk about trial by fire.  I guess there is no time like now.  Eager to see how the kid steps up in his biggest game yet.
