The leafs thread on hfboards is complaining about tats goal, saying it looked like he kicked at polak as he goes down, then celebrates like he won thestanley cup

I missed the goal, did anyone see what happened?


What the hell would they know what winning the Stanley Cup is like?

Aren't we third in the league in power play opportunities?  Why are you complaining?

We have the third most powerplays in tonight's game, and there's only two teams.

#2550785 Smith and Ericcsson?

Well I would've cared if he fought but I realize I'm a mamby pamby liberal who wets my bed and teaches my son he has a ****** and what not.
But seriously I just think it's pointless, they're grown men though and can make their own decisions.


Look man, I agree with you.  I hate fighting in the game.  I think it's a side show.  I do not find it redeemable in any way.  I view it EXACTLY like the penalty it is, and nothing more. 


Nevertheless, I don't think Smith was acting any more irresponsibly than he would have been if he'd been called for any other stupid penalty.  And I don't think that anybody would really be too awful upset if he's taken a slashing or crosschecking penalty there.  The game was out of reach, so it didn't cost us much.  Had he not been injured in such freak way, I don't think anybody would even have remember it happened. 


I offer this up to you...I've typically got very little good to say about Brendan Smith.  Everyone knows this.  When he's not scoring I think he's bad, and when he is scoring I think he's slightly above average.  So if I could criticize him I would, or at least I wouldn't defend him unnecessarily.  But he really didn't do anything worse than take a stupid penalty, far after it mattered to the game, because another (equally stupid player) hit him borderline dirty in game that was out of reach.

I guess. I think we've sufficiently beaten this to death for a player I don't care about, but..


For me I think the distinction was that he was foolish, but naive and trusting of his parents.  I'm a lot more sympathetic to that than to someone who blew it all on houses, cars, drugs, etc.  


Of course, I agree.


It's like Kip said at the beginning of this thread though. This is what happens when you have millions of dollars and you put it into the hands of non-professionals. It's very likely that it's going to be mishandled and mismanaged. That was a dumb decision by him, and why I don't feel bad for the guy who fires his agent and gives his money to non-pros.


That being said, I feel bad for him bc he experienced the worst kind of mismanagement, stealing, and from the worst people that it could come from, his loved ones.


And though I feel for him for that, at the end of the day he's money never should have been there in the first place.

Ok, I relent.  Nothing he could have done to protect himself.  At least we can all agree he's better than Terrell Owens.

Easily duped.  By his parents.   


His parents bought the house because they had power of attorney.  And the SEC hasn't exactly done a great job of protecting the US economy, let alone one guy.


I do agree that firing his agent and not replacing him was a giant mistake.  His parents, teammates, friends all should've been pointing that out to him.  He sounds naive.  I guess I just don't judge a 25 year old kid in that situation harshly for trusting his parents.  It'd be a different story if he blew it all himself on houses, cars, etc. 



Agreed yeah it was a mistake but nobody in his right mind would believe that your own family is taking 15 million $ and turn it into nothing.  Sad story indeed at least now he fill find out who his real friends are nice to see that the Jackets are standing behind him also.

Sometimes you make mistakes....JJ trusted his parents, Fedorov trusted a financial advisor and gave him millions and millions to invest...that didn't work out too good for Sergei.  He thought he was hiring a professional and JJ thought he was in good hands with his parents.  Greed kills and nobody is immune to now and again.

Pronger has been overshadowed by Lidstrom his entire career, and now will likely enter the HOF.....................in the same class as Lidstrom.   :lol:

Big blow to the Pens but more importantly I wish him a speedy recovery and hopefully he gets back to full health soon.
