#2556940 Where were team-mates on the Smith headshot

Posted by Kmahrle83 on 15 December 2014 - 07:45 PM

We've won so few fights over the years, that I wouldn't mind if a Wings player pulled a foreign object out of his pants (a la Ric Flair) and used it on his opponent.  
 

bonus points if the player and crowd all chant WHOOOOO after each punch

I've always been a firm believer if a goalie goes out to play the puck they're fair game to be hit.


But that was too late and getzlaf reaction was pathetic.

Here's why I think this "the refs should have stopped it sooner" argument is bunk.  If Smith had been winning the fight, and the refs stopped it sooner, everybody would be irritated that the refs "should have let them go".   When you say "usually the refs jump in TOO early" you're suggesting that they're doing something wrong by getting involved before they SHOULD.  And now, you're advocating them getting involved before they DID.  It's a judgment call for the refs, and when the fight is going well for our boys, people are almost never in favor of stopping the fight. 
 
If Brendan Smith had the sweater pulled over Panik's head and was serving him his lunch, everybody would have been fine with the refs' inaction.  They'd have LOVED seeing a Red Wing win a fight for once.  But because Riley's Brother was getting handled it's somehow wrong for the refs to stand back and "let em' go". 
 
I don't buy it. 


You're making assumptions here. Not too many people would be happy about that. I wouldn't want to see someone on the wings win a fight by cheating. If he loses fairly then it's all well and good. If he wins fairly then I'm happy. If cheating is involved to create a clear advantage on either side the fight should be stopped immediately.

I want Mrazek to get the empty netter.

I'd like to see him - in full goalie equipment - score as the first Wing during the next shootout.

Did everything right there but score. 


That whole thing was started on a nice keep-in by Franzen.

Hopelessly outshoot the other team and make a bad goalie look like God - pretty par for the course. 


See, it DOES feel like '09!
