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?
Family Guy is one of the most annoying shows in the history of TV IMO, but I can appreciate the humor behind this choice of artwork, and it is really well done, hope he hangs on to it when he gets called up for good.
LOL. The only people I know that don't like Family Guy, don't like it because they don't understand the satire.
I must be the only one who liked what I saw from Chris Conner when he was here. He had more jump, had better speed, through more hits, and was more effective on the ice than Emmerton, Mursak, and any of the other guys rotated up for a few games. The guy was flying. As much as I like Clears, Conner was more effective.
If Abby isn't going to score once in a while on Helm's wing, then I think a fourth line of Conner-Abby-Toots could be really effective.
Other than him getting injured, what am I missing?
I always liked Conner too. He was sent down by Pheonix this year as well. If he was bigger, he would be amazing.
I've never seen it called before, so I didn't even think of that, still pretty cowardly
I remember someone got called for fighting abby last year (I think) with a visor. Of course, I've seen Abby fight with one too. I've seen it called once or twice other than that, so it is pretty rare. Kind of like how when they throw someone out for a faceoff violation, if the same team commits another one, they are supposed to call a delay of game, but they never do...they just drop the puck.
We REALLY need some whistles at Red Wings games... just sayin. Listen, you all know it's going to happen eventually, might as well get used to the idea.
No. If you can walk the walk, then talk the talk if you wish. Tatar is a minor leaguer.
You're not making any sense. You said Tatar acted like a moron his first goal and then justified that by saying it's okay for Yakupov to do that because he is going to score more goals......so what you are saying is only 'good' players are allowed to celebrate?
You can bet your ass if I am 'not going to score that much', when I did score, I'd be pretty stoked.
See post #70 where I tell you exactly what I would have done. Or you could dig back through old threads where I repeatedly argued for signing Matt Carle AND Bryan Allen for less than we eventually DID OFFER for Suter. Or even older threads were I repeatedly argued for signing James Wisniewski. Holy s***, there's three top four defensemen I wanted who aren't named Ryan Suter and who are all currently playing top minutes for their respective teams.
Repeatedly argued to sign a James Wisniewski who refused to sign with Detroit? Good luck with that one.
