Price and Pouliot hold up while opposition in vulnerable position on the ice.
Definition of ****bags:
Boychuk fighting noted enforcer Jaro Spacek
Thornton going after heavyweight Roman Hamrlik
Gregory Campbell whaling on Pyatt with his ****ing elbow pad
Ference deciding he can start fighting once Moen hits the ice
You got it
I realize Habs are small and Bruins are bigger. But to be big and dirty? Can't appreciate being proud of something like that. Bruins fanbase seems to love it, same in Philly...
Look forward to March 8, for hockey not thuggery. But call up White anyway...
Lol @ everybody being overly emotional after Habs getting a beat down.
Should we trade for 5 goons and dress them along with White and Henry next time we play vs Boston?
Tonight was a perfect example of old timer's hockey, it was ********. I have absolutely no pleasure in seeing Spacek and Hammer get beat up by guys like Boy-Thorn. I have no pleasure in seeing Krejci get KOd by Pouliot. Campbell vs Pyatt, McQuaid jumping on MaxPAc. Horton and Lucic trying to jump on PK.
It was ridiculous. I don't want to play into this.
Sure, if we could have a bunch of players that can play well and are big and tough, great. That doesn't happen overnight. Did the Bruins build this overnight?..
Habs never gave up and weren't intimidated. Loved it. They showed heart despite some of you idiots calling them pansies.
The thing is we need to play our game, skate, apply pressure and obviously, play right defense. That's how we win.
Agreed. Just because the Big & Bad decided to goon it up at various points of the game does not indicate we lack size or toughness. We lost because we went down early tonight and never recovered, also didn't help we were chickens with our heads cut off in our own end and Price was a sieve.
Still proud of the boys like you say, not pansies in the least. That's what you call Shawn Thornton and co. for deciding to fight Spacek and Pyatt.
Next time we load up the team with goons, just ****ing tear them up, spears, beat them up , elbows, I don't give a **** anymore. Time to return the favor. Savard them up and listen to them *****. This is pathetic. Scarey thing is the Habs did much better than Dallas did against them a few days ago.
Stortini recently passed through waivers. I think tonight really shows why we need some kind of an enforcer. Thornton on Hamrlik was disgraceful. That would have never happened with Laraque or another noted tough guy on the bench. Either we bring in a Stortini, Hordichuk, Peters (preferably not as he is horrid at hockey) or recall Andrew Conboy or Jimmy Bonneau and give them the green light. Atleast when we play Boston, at the very least.
Oh please. This happened all the time with Laraque on the bench. It'll happen no matter how many goons we sign. It's hockey.
The worst part about tonight is that I knew I'd come on HF and see people clamoring for more team toughness and grit and fighters and goons, completely ignoring the fact that we beat this same Boston team 3 times already this year...and no matter how stupid the score got, we still lost this one by 2, and didn't look intimidated at any point in the game.
I wouldn't mind some team toughness (namely guys who can play hockey too, not just goons who play 3 mins a game) but it's pointless to go completely over the top and suggest we need to rehaul the entire roster. We've beat this Bruins team before many times, and we'll beat them again. Stop getting so hung up on who wins the fights and worry about who wins the games.
