To be fair, his tune changed when it became clear that Kronwall was hurt. However, as somebody who lives in Denver I can tell you that he's nearly unbearable to listen to on an even semi-regular basis. He's basically a less entertaining, less intelligent version of Jack Edwards.
To be fair, HF is HF, and the average Avalanche fans are (aside from "Red Wings suck" chants) not that bad. I've been to many games at the Pepsi Center, and I've never been accosted or messed with. Coincidentally, the Wings have also won every single game I've gone to. I wish I'd gone last night.
To me, whether he's injured on the play or not is irrelevant. It was a dirty, dirty hit that shouldn't be celebrated from the moment it took place. Just like when Lemuiex destroyed Draper and the fan base started calling him the "Draperizer". Pathetic.
....And make no mistake, I love Kronwall, but some of his hits are borderline. I've never seen someone push the envelope as much as he does and yet 99.9% of his hits are clean.
