Yes, so perhaps Emelin, or even Galchenyuk, have to endure some "retribution". But as long as our team doesn't get off its game, and it takes the B's off theirs, then it probably is smart to just keep prodding them like this sometimes. And all I'm saying is go ahead with 2-minute-infraction level stuff like this little crosscheck. Or Gallagher can brush Rask. Subban can yap at Horton. Etc. Not stuff that really hurts anybody. But stuff that can potentially trigger the B's rage mode all the same.
Stay away from the star players with this stuff.

Get under their skin? Okay... but I'd prefer not to see this stuff happen with Galchenyuk.

It's like Fox news over there. Horrible.

I have no problem with a local broadcaster being a homer (Joe Bowen for example) but to be an outright troll the way Edwards is? I'd hate to have that as my broadcaster. He just makes the entire fanbase look stupid.

The ironic thing is that so many people here are condemning Chara and calling Thornton and Lucic names for playing the exact same way they wish the Habs played. Can't have it both ways.
Yup. We'd be happy if Prust did it. The fact that some fans here can't get this through their heads says a lot about them.

Yeah it was pathetic to listend to Julien after the game. Thanks for stopping by and agreeing with us on this.
