I'm a big toughness and fighting guy. But absolutely not, you don't win the Cup by fighting guys like Bickell and Shaw. You win the Cup laughing at those 2 dummies continue to screw their team by taking dumb penalties. Keep composed, and this series will be over quick.
Defend his play on that PP now , please. Are you Cleary's father?
Cleary was the closest forward backchecking, and there was another teammate to his right. Quincey was covering the pass. As third man in, Cleary's job is to cover the slot.
The lengths you go to defend Cleary are baffling.
I'm saying it was a broken play. Cleary had a 50/50 shot at who he should cover.
Quincey covers the pass. Typically that means he stays in the middle. If Quincey stays in the middle to cover the pass, then Sharp could've walked in on the left side for a quality shot and you guys would be bashing Cleary for not covering him.
It's only in retrospect because Q made a sliding play towards Sharp that it seems obvious Cleary should've picked up the trailer.
I'm not defending Cleary. I'm pointing out that play was on Smith. But because Cleary is the scapegoat this year you'll even bash him for not guessing correctly on a broken play.
Flashy - Your work is wonderful on all levels. This is steller stuff. I think my fave in this one is Boudreau the Hutt. I'm guessing even the Ducks are checking these out. At least the pictures, since there's really no proof they can read.
