Why don't Kovalev snd Samsonov look happy when they scored?
 
I was just watching highlights and they look like someone just ran over their dog. What gives? :dunno:

Edit: Could Kovalev be upset he lost his buddy Ribeiro? He liked playing with him and they watched the superbowl together.

Edit2: After reading the replies I have come up with a theory: Kovalev and Samsonov are just so ELITE that scoring unemotional goals just doesn't phase them anymore. I like it!

They are not the only ones in the league.Not everyone is like Ovechkin!!!

Don't worry about that,it's just minor details so that 110% has something to talk about

CourtnallRocks 10-22-2006 12:10 AM

Has anyone noticed Sakic celebrate after he scores? Exactly. I think the same applies here. Scoring goals is thier job...

PanniniClaus 10-22-2006 12:12 AM

Samsonov is upset because he knows the more he scores the more it is expected.

marvelousmotion 10-22-2006 12:14 AM

lol, how about : has anyone seen Rivet's reaction after his goal ? priceless.. :D

Phil Parent 10-22-2006 12:15 AM

Rivet was RABID after his goal!

madbox 10-22-2006 12:19 AM

Sammy was pointing to Kovy saying something. I'm figuring along the lines of that goal being all Kovy.


*this forum is screwy

When Samso scored he did released a little smile.....I m happy for him
and when Kovy scored he looked at Samso and nod his head meaning good job I guess, I know they cut right before it in the highlights...

Kovy is really happy when he scores a big goal...don't really know for Samsonov.

when he scored the game tying goal against ottawa he was pretty happy


but i agree with the poster above...these guys are experienced, it's not like it's their first NHL goal. They're happy inside, and when it's a GWG or something, then they celebrate. Remember Kovy in the playoffs?

JMMR 10-22-2006 12:41 AM

Who cares if they celebrate (although it does make it more exciting) as long as the score.
Also have to agree big time players celebrate when the time is right, I bet sammy would smile and act excuted if he scored an OT winner or something along those line!

Tray4Adams 10-22-2006 01:10 AM

Souray doesn't really get excited at all either.

jordi 10-22-2006 02:20 AM

Maybe the fans wont stop trying to flick stuff at them.

Its their style.

Kovalev kinda has that "That was easy, watch me do it again" attitude... I like it

But if he has a multi goal game or if the game has high importance, you'll see alot more emotion out of him.

TheDamned 10-22-2006 05:03 AM

Because they are Russians.

Rather these couple goals were long over due. Carbo has said couple times he wants production from his 2nd line ... maybe they are into mood next game.

PS. How did my message end up in the middle of the thread...?

Is it just me, or does that sentence sound a little bit gay...:pillow:

Dwight 10-22-2006 06:54 AM

Not all players are like Higgins who does that leg-lifting fist-pumping thing with a big smile on his face. Kovy and Sammy would smile if they scored a milestone goal or a big OT goal. You saw Kovy last year. Souray only smiled when he scored his nice goal vs the Pens.

Joe Cole 10-22-2006 07:01 AM

The whole "Kovalev doesn't celebrate like he just won the lottery after every goal" is an idea that was started by ...who else... the genius himself... Michel Bergeron. It was just another way to say that there was another immigrant stealing a job away from a good ol' Quebecois. :dunce:

Don't even waste another scond thinking about it.

btw... I do not believe that Maurice Richard through his gloves in the air and freaked out everytime he scored either. :bow:

Goal celebrations are fine occassionaly when the circumstances fit. But I prefer a football player who throws the ball over his shoulder and just runs back to the bench, rather then some elborate dance with all his team mates dancing in synch. That is just pain tired.

Same for hockey.

Why can't we just be happy when Kovalev and Samsonov score? Why must they perform like a circus moneky for us too?

mcphee 10-22-2006 08:57 AM

When you're down 3-0 and you get a goal or 2, like Souray did, you don't start dancing because you are embarassed at getting behind 3-0. 1 goal doesn't make up for it. The message is and should be, 'fine,we got a goal but we haven't made up for anything yet'. The Kovy line scoring, while a beautiful goal that requires a lot of talent, doesn't make up for their poor showing in the 1st 6 games, a fact that pros like Samsonov and kovy are well aware of. I think they show the right sentiment.

Don't know if you caught the Als debacle yesterday. Behind by a bunch, Kerry Watkins caght a short pass for a touchdown and starts some pre-planned routine that seemed to involve him playing a trumpet. I know I'm of an age when i saw Hal Patterson walk over to the ref and hand him the ball and shake hands with his teammates, but to celebrate when way behind is like wearing an I'm An Idiot sign. I get how the CFL has to sell the personalty more than other leagues, but players have to understand when it makes sense.

I agree, and it's one of the reasons why Rivet celebrated so much when he scored..he thought it might be the winning goal...little did he know the Habs were just getting started.;)

Sammy cracked a smile at Kovy right after, but he soon changed it to "let's get back to business" look. I don't think he's totally satisfied with his start either, and I got the impression that he's a little self conscious about it and wants to impress the fans positively, and that would include not overly celebrating a goal that still meant his team was trailing in the game.

Did anyone see souray reaction after his first goal, he had none. It was more of a pissed off kind of look trying to get his teamates going. When your down and youve played a bad game your not allways happy.

lol I think Samsonov was just surprised the puck even came to his stick. He looked right at Kovalev after the goal and looked amazed..
