good game tonight... both teams looked good, but price was stellar. as far as the goonage goes, don't worry, philly fans hate shelley too and i don't think powe had malicious intent on either questionable hit. he has no track record of bad hits. looking forward to another good one in a week or so.
I agree with you on Powe. The first hit was overblown by some of us. I'd say it was clean, but maybe a bit of a charge.
2nd hit I didn't really like, but I don't think there was an intent to injure, and I believe Halpern will be alright.
Flyers fans can say what they want. They can try to say that they're classy and accept the loss, and how we brag. But we all know that if they won, all we'd hear is how they won two games in as many nights.
I really don't understand why people think classy is a positive quality in a sports team / fanbase. Sports and especially rough sports like hockey and football imo aren't meant to be classy. Its about being rough and tough.
What I enjoy about Philly is that they aren't classy, that the city is about the Broad Street Bullies, that the city is fine with a Boxer, Rocky Balboa image. It speaks to their middle class roots imo.
I respect that alot more than the corporate culture fanbase that is in Toronto.
