Give your opinion on the guy.
I really think this guy is gonna have his a** kicked this year.
He hits to injured and he's gonna pay for that
Yeah turtled in front of Souray...you know that we would have destroyed your sorry a**.
It happens too often to this guy...no accident...prematurate
As a player, I like him. He drives the net and goes into the danger zones. Skill level is not bad either.
As a hitter, the guy looks to injure. That is not the spirit of the game. Hitting is to take a player out of the play. When a player is aware, then giving a harder hit is not a problem. They are are all pros out there. A man to man, with the head down...fair game. But when you pick a player who is engaged with another player, and you come in as a third man and level him... that I call dirty.
I feel the same about Regher's hit on Downey last year. And many of Scott Stevens' hits.
Mano-o-mano=no problem. Blind siding/third man in=cheap
Exactly, fully agree with your post. Also being over agressive and hitting to hurt often also takes one out of the play as well, a bit pointless.
something tells me that if he was playing on the habs, your opinion would be different.
after this season, there's going to be 29 other fanbases that are going to hate lapierre's guts too. Infact, he's already made a bit of a name for himself.
Maybe, but he's not on the Habs and I hate his blind-side hits right to the chin, he does it all the time on players who are already engaged with another hockey player and there's no glory in that, in my mind.
