Trash talking...Been around for ages...Why not get into the head of an opponent when ya get the chance?

 

Lets be honest here...It's not like Phaneuf is some scrub player from the AHL, who got a call up due to injuries...I'm certain Alfie got alot more from the likes of Darcy Tucker.

 

I'm not suggesting it hasn't been that way since forever ... we all know that.  I'm saying there is a code for a select group of elite players.  This is especially true in the later part of their careers.  You don't take cheap shots at them and you don't talk trash during casual moments on the ice (heat of the moment is another matter, of course).

 

Case in point - how often did guys take cheap shots or talk trash to Lids toward the end of his career?

Another thing - I was beginning to wonder if they'd ever show any of the Swedes speaking Swedish.  They finally did when they went to Alfie's house for Christmas (the only time during any of the four segments).  Considering almost a third of the team speaks Swedish, presumably that's an integral part of the communication that takes place in the locker room and on the ice.

 

In fact -- I remember a few years back they interviewed Hank right after a big playoff overtime win.  The guys on the ice (all five Swedes) gathered for a quick discussion just before they scored the winner.  The guy interviewing Hank asked what they discussed during the meeting and followed that up by asking if they spoke in English or Swedish.  Hank had to think about it for a second, and responded the discussion was all in Swedish.

I knew he was a ****** bag before and it still confirms my feelings towards the Neanderthal name Phaneuf.

 

Phaneuf confirmed his status as major douchebag when he was talking s*** to Alfredsson.  Alfie is a first ballot future hall of famer.  There's a code of respect in the game for guys like Alfie - but obvously Phaneuf thinks he's above all that.

Philly's strategy is to beat us up enough where we won't be able to do anything on all the power plays - we'll be too banged up.

 

Philly has always played rough hockey - it's their MO.
