#1973049 OHL Player lays out opposing goalie

Posted by thegerkin on 04 May 2010 - 02:01 AM

I saw that earlier (I think it was a link from Yahoo). As the caption said, guess he didn't feeling like playing in that game. The goalie just laughed it off. Some of the comments about Archibald, the dumbass who ran the goalie, were pretty damn funny. Archibald appears to be African-Canadian (bear with me and my PC-ness ugh) with one ugly ass blonde afro-hawk. A comment left was:

Man, normally a hair cut like that says "I make good decisions" :thumbup: :lol:

On his way off the ice, he was chirping with some fans and tugged at his name-plate like he's a tough guy. Real tough, bowling over the Michelin tire man haha

Newsflash... The HP pavilions Ice was very bad. there was an eagles concert the night before. i don't think they were diving but more slipping on bad ice.

Sorry pal, not buying that load of bulls***. I've been to San Jose during this time of year. Yes, you're a Southern/warmer climate team and it's harder to have great ice (I know the Joe gets high marks, but we have the advantage of being in a Northern climate), but the Eagles concert the night before wouldn't make Nabby and the rest of the Sharks team fall at the slightest breeze. The ONLY way I would buy your excuse is if the entire Sharks club was actually AT the Eagles concert toking it up with the rest of the fans :lol:

See I don't know about that for me personally. Jumbo Joe has always been a ******. As well as Dan "slewfoot" Boyle. I've never been impressed with Marleau. Ever since the game against Canada I've had no respect for Nabokov. Heatley is just a moron. I mean, they're not the Ducks of the past or the Pens with Cooke and company but there are definitely more teams that I'd like to see win besides the Sharks.

The only player they have that's really clicking is Pavalski. As much as the refs are killing us by calling penalties on Shark dives, but in those situations, the refs aren't bring 1 of each to the box when it happens. The diving turns into a Shark power play, which turns into them feeding Pavalski pucks at the point, which results in a goal more than half the time. (I'm not going to get into the 5-on-3, someone already pointed out that Kronner took a legit hook to make it a 2-man advantage.)

I honestly really thought diving was 95% out of hockey. Yes, a goalie may flop. Yes, some hooks are embellished. BUT THAT IS EVERY TEAM IN THE LEAGUE. Sorry for the caps, trying to make a point. Until we played this round (I can't remember too much of the regular season meetings between the Sharks and us, so I can say anything about diving there) I thought the refs had a decent season (yuck, I can taste the bile coming up from the beer on that sentence). This serious is an abomination. Atrocious even. The Sharks have being diving continuously and they call Darren Helm in Game 1 on a dive? At least they took both (obstruction/diving). This year's playoff Sharks are sickening to watch (not just as a Red Wings fan, but a hockey purist as well).
