#2439728 Are teams going to "bait" us into fighting?

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 29 September 2013 - 01:55 AM

I have a question...Who in all of the players in the NHL is the best at baiting the wings....The "Master" of "Baiting" if you will.  ;)

Then we'd have no size up front.

I just don't get it why people want to get rid of all the size we have. Get even more weak on the puck and soft. Next you will see a thread to please trade E-rock off of the team. I'm waiting.

#2439092 Wings to Keep Tootoo?

Like when? Kronwall is one of the hardest hitters in the league, but I can't remember the last time this had an appreciable effect upon anything but the crowd and the guy who got hit.

I hope you really don't think that a big hit or a big fight doesn't spark a team or really have an effect. Besides if you are correct and all it does is get the crowd fired up...do you not agree that even having a crowd behind you all fired up helps a team? Or is it all these years when they rank hardest barns to play at just fluff and it means nothing?

Watch him carefully. We spend all our time chasing the puck in our zone when he is on the ice. This guy no longer helps the Wings as a player. He needs to hang them up.

So last night that had nothing to do with the fact that he was on a line with the great Cleary and young pup Sheahan? I would take Bert and what he brings over cleary,sammy,eavs,emmerton...any day. It's preseason.

I think stick swinging is somdthing that shouldnt be tolerated. Kessel deserves 10-15 games.

Listen...The first one I can sort of understand SORT OF...but when Scott was engaged with the other players that one is the one I didn't like then the spear at the end. Kessel is going to poke the bear like that then he needs to deal with the consequences of his actions.

I agree it was a mismatch but Tropp chose to drop the gloves. He could've just as easily skated away or given a little slash and moved on with the play. If Scott had a problem with it he should've settled with Devane.

Well I'm sure with Scott it was "you go after my small skilled guys i'm going after yours."

Good lord, if you recognize that it's a quote from a movie (one of my favorites) then you also know the context.  I was trying to make a joke about you seeming so worked up about this, not calling you a name.  If I weren't so lazy I'm sure there's a pic or gif of it somewhere.  I apologize if you took it personally.  I just don't see why your posts seem so angry.


And I'm not sure who's making Kessel out to be a saint.  He did give several two handed slashes to a guy.  I didn't think I needed to state that he wasn't a saint.  But if a goon like Scott came after Zetterberg or Datsyuk I'd be fine if they responded in exactly the same way. 


I don't disagree that people would be going nuts in this thread if it were Crosby.  But people also have an irrational hate for Crosby here and look for any opportunity to express it.  That's why I prefer to consider how I would feel if a Wings player did what Kessel did.  And I'd be fine with it. 


Frankly I do think Scott should be suspended and Rolston should be fined.  He sent out his goon to start something.  Carlyle responded by putting out the least confrontational lineup he could've picked and Scott went after Kessel anyway.

But you are forgetting why Scott even came out after Kessel. You keep running your mouth calling out a Goon he will at some point come out. And that's what happened. That's the difference with players Like Dat's When is the last time you seen him chirping are a goon? The code I'm sure for the skilled guys as well is don't poke the bear unless you want to "get got" Scott never even was able to get him but Kessel sure did land several slashes. And then when Kessel's team mates jumped on Scott that sure didn't stop Kessel from still hacking away.

There was no fighter on the ice for Toronto. The forwards were Ashton, Bozak, and Kessel. Who exactly should have dropped their gloves and fought Scott when he elected to jump Kessel? What good would it have done for them to go after him once he got out of the penalty box and Kessel had has his ass kicked and potentially been hurt? 


This isn't like when Maguire jumped Yzerman and Probert was right there to get instant vengeance. It's all well and good to say "fighters fight fighters" but that's not how the situation developed. Kessel was entitled to use a force multiplier to defend himself. 

Kessel apparently thinks he is a fighter he dropped his gloves and fought. 


Going back to Crosby. I have seen threads go for days talking about how Crosby was checked or ran hard, some even be a bit on the excessive side, and then the only thing he can do is a slash back because Crosby is no where near a fighter and he got crucified for it on here. 


Now imagine it were Datsyuk


Just like Franzine said


"Kessel's first slash: admirable


Further slashes/spears: unnecessary but understandable"

I don't have to even try because I know Dats wouldn't do a d*ck move running his mouth then when scott drops his gloves to shut him up he starts slashing like that.

Again if it were Crosby you would be all for the beat down he had coming Harold and you know it. Kessel had no right after Scott was engaged to keep slashing period.

You guys have lost it. Neither Dats or Z would of started it like Kessel did so that is a non factor. Kessel wants to run his mouth and do what he did without having anything kind of repercussions? Come on you guys if Crosby was doing this you all would be calling for his head and he is one of the greatest skilled players in the game now and is no where near a fighter. I think Kessel did a pretty pricky move by slashing scott about 10 times while scott was engaged with someone else. Again if it were Crosby I think things would be a bit different in this thread.

#2437464 Pulkkinen Scheduled for Hearing

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 18 September 2013 - 11:31 AM

his right shoulder collides with the numbers of the back of his jersey. the side would be if he hit him on the side of his shoulder. The second angle is where you can see it properly.

Not sure. Looks more to the side not directly on the numbers
