NHL playoffs
I fancy Philadelphia if they can get past Sindy Crosby and his cronies.

GO FLYERS!

I don't think the commentator knows the mean of "prone," I would not follow him.

Re: NHL playoffs
Yeah fuck you Crosby.

All back to Philly for the next two.

Re: NHL playoffs
Did not see Philly swinging a game back like that!

3 games for Kadri.

And go Knights!

Re: NHL playoffs
Clear elbow to the head of a prone player, he went knee to knee with Nash in the same game too, 2 games I reckon.

Show how much speed has changed the game. That would not have been a dangerous hit and certainly not an illegal one when I played.

Re: NHL playoffs
Leafs took a pounding in their first play off game for ages, Kadri looking at a ban?

Just do what we did, blame L.A. for what McSorely became.

Re: NHL playoffs
I know mate. But there is still a personal element which makes me want to forgive him.

My Dad coached McSorely in youth hockey. I later found out my Dad was on a team that was so violent it sparked a provincial inquiry. So, maybe that whole Brashear incident could be traced back to my Dad.

Re: NHL playoffs
WCO, McSorley has a bad reputation for his high stick on Brashear, bloke almost died

Re: NHL playoffs
I think there is a big difference between an enforcer and a goon (not saying you are conflating the two).

Players like Semenko I can very much tolerate and respect.

Teams like the Flyers from 70s, not at all.

Yet oddly I am still rather fond of McSorely. Probably to do with meeting him when I was a kid and him being very nice, taking the time to talk to me and some of the other kids I was with.

The actual one true enforcer was "Cementhead" Semenko who sadly died last year.

Can any of those other guys say they stepped in the ring with Mohammed Ali? (even if it was a charity match) (And they all wore helmets their whole careers)

More seriously, to tie into Roeders Jacket 's comment, he was a huge part of those early 80s Oilers team. Gretzky was a wisp of a kid but Big Dave gave him the freedom to play in a league that was a lot rougher than it is now. Find Gretzky's eulogy to him online to see how important he was.

By the way, RJ, Gretzky met his actress wife Janet Jones after being traded/sold (very rare in NA sports) to L.A. It was the machinations of an evil owner (sound familiar) and the first great tragedy of my life.

Being able to see him live a fair few times before he left are some great memories.

WCO, the Laraque v Brashear fights were legendary

Re: NHL playoffs
Can't see Philly winning a game, i'll bet the next game has a few penalties in it though!

I like the NHL; I've taken the lad to a few Capitals games. It's always great enertainment. What I don't like is the 20 minute intermission and the $10 charge for a can of Budweiser.

Re: NHL playoffs
7-0 or 100-0 it was still only one game.

Flyers will win on Friday.....

Far Cough -

Haha, a bit of a blast from the past there.

That's true, but I think there are more than is usually thought, it is just a lot are journeymen no-namers.

The current big names I can think of are Brasher, Byfuglien, and Subban.

A recent favourite of mine was Johnny Oduya.
