They're still incredibly skilled but much like Logan Couture, there's just something about them that spawns irrational hatred deep in my soul.
But look at me, worried about my soul when they don't have souls at all.
Good for him.
It's pathetic that people think that just because someone is famous they have the right to constantly harass them online. This guy didnt send one tweet to biz he sent like 15 in an hour.
I guess it doesn't count as online bullying if the guy is rich though. Good to know.
Don't start something that you can't handle. Well done Paul.
I just want you all to know that Canadians feel really bad for inflicting this kid upon the world.
Toronto, Winnipeg, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Los Angeles, Philedelphia....all teams he's pretended to support.
Datsyuk is (IMO) exactly the kind of player the Wings retire. The other names in the rafters were guys who embodied what it means to be a Red Wing and i think Pav fits the mold. He handles himself with class and he is respected league-wide. Besides that he has good numbers, some hardware, and he's a gifted player.
Maybe Dats isn't a captain, maybe his numbers aren't as high but 50 years from now when I'm looking back, he's the man I'll remember the most. He's the guy who people will still talk about and say "wow, that guy was something special" and that makes him a future legend in my mind.
Classy for sure but not enough to make me forget the Chicago Stronger shirts or chanting "Detroit Sucks" during every game and their cup parade.
It's a shame that their fans don't live up to the standard of respect set by their organization.
(Except Kane. He's the worst.)
This was a garbage fight but in my opinion the refs are the biggest issue. No 17 year old kid with that much adrenaline is counting how many punches he's thrown or looking to see if the other kid is trying to hit back. He's landing as many as he can and the refs job is to protect them and they failed.
All I'm saying is that if this kid gets convicted then you've set a precedent and there's nothing to stop people from pressing charges every time they lose a fight or are the victim of anything on the ice where there was a clear intent to injure.
Kid started it. Other kid took it WAY too far. Still don't think he should be criminally charged. Just banned from the league or something equally serious but not criminal.
I just think it's a slippery slope to press charges on a hockey fight.
