    Meh. I was glad to see the Harvard kid score. His dad/former coach was always a decent guy—or so I’ve heard. 

    Go Wild!

    I hate Marchand, but Foligno actually looked like he got the worst of it.

    Every team needs a Brad Marchand type player...

    one of my my favourite moments of his was in the finals against Vancouver when he used one of the Sedin’s twin head as punching bag and the wimp sedan just stood there...great moment.

    Hockey was much better when teams had their 'villians' and a big draw was you got to watch your "villians" (who you thought were good guys defending their team and city) go up against the other team's 'villians'.  

    There was a different dynamic.  Players werent as huge and fast overall, and equipment wasnt like stormtrooper equipment so hits, punches, and cheap shots werent so violent and damaging.  You could also get away with hiding a few lunkheads in the lineup because the average player wasnt a well-oiled efficiency spreadsheet.  Also, concussions, long term effects and diagnosis were not developed yet.  It wouldnt be so fun if I knew at the time that Todd Ewen was actively shortening his life.  

    I dont know where Im going with this.  I greatly miss old-time hockey, but I realize too that it can never come back.

    I do kind of like Marchand though.  He is a terrific hockey player.

    yeah looks like he went face first into the ice.  Marchand, looking up taking his # for the next shift.

    Goon/enforcer hockey- gotta love it.

    Hockey was absolutely better with enforcers ... some of my favourite enforcers are, bob probert easily tops my list, followed by knuckles nilan.

    it was great.  I remember going to games (in arenas that were 100x better than present-day) and the first thing I would do was open the lineup or program to see what fighters the other team had.  

    Games had an edge of the seat unpredictability factor.  Maybe it would happen a half dozen times a season, but games could erupt into a melee and it would be thrilling to watch.  Even a 5-1 game, you didnt want to look away from.  We still talk about specific games with 'names' we all recognize like "The Baumgartner incident".  Now, games just blend together in a miscellaneous mass of boringness, and offsides challenges.

    I have no problem with fighting in hockey, I also had no problem with bench clearing brawls...
  • dankinddankind I am not your foot. Posts: 12,475
    I have no problem with fighting or enforcers or even goons, but it's a sideshow and not the reason I bought a ticket or watch a game. 

    And I do think that the league should institute a "three strikes and you're out" of the league type of rule on vicious hits and other such behavior deemed worthy of a suspension. It would cause the league to perhaps be more mindful when doling out suspensions. And it would help keep unsportsmanlike (and ultimately dangerous) conduct out of the game because asshole cheapshot dickbags would think twice about having their feet leave the ice to throw an elbow into someone's head if their careers and giant paychecks are on the line. I'd much rather cheer on the player for scoring a sweet goal or carrying out a nice solid check than for raising his arm while being carried off the ice on a stretcher.

    tonight is a perfect example of Detroit season, 3-1 in third, 2 penalties, tied 3-3, Wings go ahead seconds later philly ties it up. So frustrating.  Now a penalty with 34 secs left...

    10 in a row!!!!!!!!  I really hope Jackets don’t wear themselves out before the playoffs. As it stands right now we’re looking at another first round match up with the Penguins.
