Like mentioned above,

I'm surprised that Brian Burke's ass can talk

Kim Johnsson?! are you serious?

Yeah a 20 game suspension for high sticking Steve Heinze in the face and sucker punching Kim Johnsson. Never ever did May play dirty.

I can point out just as many dirty stick-works by Koivu (who I greatly respect as a player and person) or maybe point out other lesser evils by players like Kostitsyn who slew-footed Schenn earlier this season.

I thought May had some interesting insight into Carbo's coaching techniques but all he does is say something hypocritical... Oh well.

For all the dirty stick works by Koivu, how many times has he been suspended? I'd love to know. Has Kostitsyn been suspended? Please, enlighten our fanbase. I bet you think Tucker was "misunderstood" and Marchment was "unlucky".

I was hoping to see that May was ripping on Carbo for his complete failure at assessing line combos..........

A great post by someone on another board.

"Hockey on a professional level - or anything beyond a collegiate level has a much greater degree of competitiveness. This translates into players who want to go on professionally to become much more aggressive, and to do whatever they believe must be done to earn a spot on a team - and this includes things like cheap shots, spontaneous stick swinging, and other actions that are dangerous to other players.

Fights in hockey were originally a response to that, but grew to include intimidation tactics that would keep other team's players from performing, as well as to "protect" their smaller skilled players (ask Gretzky if he didn't find the presence of McSorely reassuring). Once fighting loses the purpose of keeping players from taking cheap shots, swinging sticks and intimidating other players, it does detract from the game",

Fighting to intimidate isn't a part of hockey - only to protect. Period.

Ironic user-names are sometimes the funniest part of HFBoards, take "hockeysense" for example, his posts demonstrate the opposite of his user-name.

Brad May's not dirty, that's one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

May did a lot more than comment about Steve Moore. If, as you suggest, he is criticizing Carbonneau for hiding behind tough guys, and not answering the bell/doing the dirty work himself, you have to understand his role in the Bertuzzi attack.

After the game, Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi called the officiating a joke, while teammate Brad May indicated a bounty had been placed on the 25-year-old Moore, a rookie NHLer.

May's career has been full of questionable incidents. Playing for Vancouver in 2004, he was the player who put the "bounty" on the head of Colorado's Steve Moore that resulted in then- Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi ending Moore's career in the next game.
I'm just glad that I'm not Dominic Moore, having to look a guy like Brad May in the eyes after every game, knowing what he did.

To be fair, though, May has never played the game dirty.

May is justifying his existence to Burke, and hence looking for a contract.

I don't know but if coming on this board to post endless variations on the theme "May's pure class but Carbo was always dirty" isn't trolling then what is?

May was all proud of his last game in Montreal when he fought Bouillon and there was no Komisarek or Laraque in the line-up. He got his feeling shatered when he actualy got his ass kicked by George Laraque, he's actualy pissed because he looked realy bad on that one and he 's sending his frustration against Carbo for using Laraque... for using Laraque for what he's paid.

I was also hoping for the big Kostitsyn/Grabovski tilt but I'm pretty sure Sergei wins that one. The most hyped matchup since Komo and Lucic

I almost positive that the NHL is being tight with the Leafs and Habs on ensuring they stay off the ice at the same time. Two games now that miraculously, the line set ups have kept them off the ice for almost the entire games. That's not an accident. If this was ten years ago, the game would start with Sergei at center with Grabovski and they'd get it out of their system for an opening bout, leaving people to watch the game as the main event.

he's going to complain now? that's what you get for taking advantage of an injury ridden habs team when you know laraque is out of the lineup. i didn't see him playing so tough sat night. may deserves what he got and he should stop embarrassing himself any further.
