The difference in styles of play is an issue and is something that should be allowed to be discussed as is plays a role in the cohesiveness and style of play of this team. If that's not allowed to be discussed then I think this is wrong. Insulting anyone for any reason of nationality or whatever is unacceptable. But if it's done in an appropriate manner I still feel like this is something that should be allowed to be talked about. Just me though.
Agreed. It undermines the dialogue we have here on hfboards. There can be a reasonable discussion about the difference between european and north american hockey that includes generalizations without being derogatory to one side or the other.
