Photoshop skills here are great. I don't have any. A little OT, but relative in an off-handed way.....

Wings must beat the Oil tonight. Gotta stay with J-Ho....he's red hot! I have complete faith that if J-Ho falters in the playoffs, Ozzie will stand on his head from the get-go. Wings must beat the Oil tonight. 2 points Jimmeh!!


#1927707 Kenny calling Crosby "Cindy"?

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 29 March 2010 - 11:08 AM

Then you don't watch the Penguin's much no offense. Saying Malkin is better than Crosby is laughable to any Penguin's fan. He's so inconsistent, Crosby gives 100% all the time whether you hate him or not.

And saying his defensive game is average is exactly what I'm talking about here. He's no where near a Kesler/Datsyuk, but he is a tier below he's much better than you give him credit for.

Plus he's real classy. No ass-punchin or end-of-game-crosscheck/sucker-punch-to-the-back-of-the-head ***** moves. Nosirree. Nothin but class for Cindy.

Exceptional skills = yep.
Asshat-duochenozzle = yep.

His behavior makes it too easy to poke fun at him. He's a little ***** that needs to grow up so he can gain a little respect.

If they just did something boneheaded and dangerous to your teammate, absolutely.



If you don't think it's a big deal, look at fighting majors per year in the years just before and just after the instigator rule came to be. Before the rule, you could skate up to someone who didn't want to fight, throw off your gloves and start swinging. Most often, even league cowards like Claude Lemieux would fight back would fight back, and both players took matching 5s. Rarely would one man get five and the other not. Now that the instigator rule is in place, the guy who picks the fight is penalized more harshly than the guy who layed the Ruutu-esque hit that earned him the ass-kicking. It does prevent team's tough guys from doing their jobs, especially when the team needs every win they can get.

Without the instigator rule, guys who do stupid s*** to their opponents either have to answer to some thug with cement hands or face the ridicule of even their own fans for being a turtling coward who is afraid to finish what he started. I like that.

this.

The only time a Boogard type might fight a Datsyuk type is if Dats spears, buttends, charges, boards, or otherwise does something he shouldsn't. Guys like Dats don't do those things, so, guys like Boogy won't jump them, even if they could.

The pre-instigator NHL was not the wild wild west, and it was not a free-for-all with 230lb thugs who couldn't skate randomly jumping ballerinas because they could.

and all of this.

I liked how Cindy was crosscheckin, punching Z in the back of the head from behind and various other *****-antics when J-Ho rips his helmet off. Cindy got as calm and quiet as a 2 week old puppy.
