For everybody except those who formerly felt entitled to degrade and undermine those they found "lesser". They long for the days when they could say whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, and nobody would object. Because heaven forbid people universally condemn these idiots. That's "overly PC".
Not that we have any of those folks around here.
People have opinions - whether you agree with them, or not - they're still entitled to them.
For you, or anyone else to chastise them because of that - does that make you any better than those who you're condemning?
I agree it was a poor decision by Rielly to associate girls/women with how pissy/moody his Leaf team mates are acting, but it's these sorts of issues that create such an uproar make my knuckle-dragging-neanderthal brain hurt.

Let me give you an easy example: what would happen if people who are offended that others are offended did the same thing and complained in groups about the "offended party " ? That's right a never ending circle of being offended that others are offended...it would be so comically chaotic and stupid at the same time.
Maybe it's just me and I'm too relaxed for stuff like this it just doesn't bother me.
People get offended over anything in todays ultra 'pc' society we live in.
That said - wonder Rielly will be on the trading block.
Then the score so is wrong it shows the wings at 5 and Pittsburgh at 4.
The overall standings don't matter for the playoffs anymore. It's a divisional playoff since last season. 1 in the conference plays the lowest of the wildcard teams, 2 plays the highest wildcard. 2/3 in the division play. So as of now it'd be MTL/BOS, TB/DET, NYI/WSH, AND PIT/NYR.
While being great players neither are in that echelon of the others who had there numbers retired. They are like Shanny only Shanny has 3 cups. Just because they are the best players of this generation of Wings doesnt mean they are all time greats.
I guess this is as good a place as any to link this Mike McKee article. According to the article, his 2 points in 24 games, and one penalty per game average, is apparently "proving wrong" the people who doubted he could become a productive player for Western. Lol.
Yet more proof that really huge guys can mesmerize idiots.
IMO, this will make the Sabres a worse team this year than before the trade...
...which is exactly what they want. They want to win the race to the bottom to better their chances at McDavid.
They pretty much would have done that without the trade. It just doesn't really make sense from their perspective, especially giving up that late 1st rounder in what is supposed to be the deepest draft class in years. Without that pick the trade is only slightly lopsided in Winnipeg's favor, but man does it ever seem like overpayment on Buffalo's part...
If he did that to Lucic, this thread would be titled "Hero Roussel ejected for cross check to Lucic's throat"
An elbow is one thing.....Getting a cross check to the throat is something entirely different .
And yes - Howe only had 2 fights if I remember correctly...He was 1 guy nobody wanted to mess with.
I think Gordie had more than two fights. It may be that only two fights are remembered or recorded somewhere. Otherwise, he had only one fight besides Fontinato. That might be right, but it doesn't sound right.

Went to school with him, and am friends with a former team mate of his. He is a nice guy though and through. I'd love to have him on Detroit. He's the type of guy who works for his minutes, and isn't pissy if he doesn't get them. Grit, and being stable in the mind (180 of someone like avery).
