The way I look at it, you have unwritten rules you abide by as players. You don't f*** with captains, stars, and/or goalies and you certainly don't allow opposing teams to do so. Anyone who denies this needs to question his/her status as a hockey fan.
How about "Man I get so sick of hearing about Daniel Cleary all the time, why is he always in the spotlight, hey NHL, guess what? Other people play in this league too! Talk about Sidney Crosby for a change!"
The hit on DeKeyser looked clean, but could you imagine if one of the Red Wings would have taken Seth Jones out of the game? There would be immortal hell to pay. And Jordin Tootoo would be the man to collect had he not been sitting on Detroit's bench and still playing for Nashville. We're a bunch of pansies.
You people are pathetic excuse for fans. I'm ready for a struggling Red Wings season, it's about time to burn off all this dead wood.
Look I'm a thick & thin Red Wings fan and I'm sure I speak on behalf of others when I say we ****ing blow like a bulimic after Thanksgiving dinner... We waited through a long and grueling offseason for this?? Something has to be done, how many losses do we have to endure before someone loses a job? It happens.
