ANY fanbase would have been pumped. So you can and should drop the condescending "holier than thou" garbage. Especially since you belong to a fanbase that defended Matt Freaking Cooke, one of the dirtiest players in the league. Your **** stinks just as much as any other fanbase.
Not sure how I didn't see this until someone else quoted it, but I'd like to respond.
Probably fair to say first that I am not a fan of fighting in the game at all, period. I much prefer to watch the skill players do what only a few on the planet can. I'm probably a bit older than most here and got to grow up in the Gretzky/Lemieux era. Never once did I hope to see Gretzky get beat up or hurt, ever.
I watched the Pens get embarrassed during the ECF against the Bruins and never did I think it would be a good idea to just start a brawl and hope that changed things up, so your first point, while directed at an entire fanbase, is misplaced if aimed at me.
Secondly, you will never find anywhere that I defended the actions of Matt Cooke. Did I root for him when he tried to turn things around, sure, am I ever going to side with him over what happened to Marc Savard? Certainly not.
I would love for the NHL to get rid of fighting altogether. I know that is not gonna happen and there are gonna be scenes like what happened in this game or the Pens vs NYI a couple seasons ago.
My only point was I don't think you guys have "bad luck", you have a bad GM.
Here's hoping Downie is ok and gets back to playing sooner than later.
