His shot blocking was the equivalent of a soldier shooting himself in the foot. He bailed on the Islanders when they needed him. He is worthless.

Sure i'm the only Hawk fan who thinks foley was wrong. Cause i'm not lettin my dislike for a player cloud what really happened. foley was out of line. He should have said that face to face if that is what he thought of him. Keep it out of the public eye like every other pro sports team.

Re: Foley should have said that to Karpotsev's face.
That's a great point. Perhaps he should have done that before the TV rant (maybe he did at some point, I don't know). But does ranting in Karpovset's face go along with your idea of professionalism? Which is it...Is this an issue of guts or professionalism? What is the definition (and your definition) of professionalism in this case anyway?

At least a third of the shots he blocked were because, after the ankle injuries, he couldn't skate fast enough to get out of the way.

Problem is, Karpovtsev was a solid player in NY and Toronto. Then he came here and WHUPP! he was bad all of a sudden. His offensive totals were cut in half, and the injuries were more frequent and kept him out longer.

Yes, that would have been more professional because he would have kept it out of the public eye.

People get ripped all the time in pro sports. But they keep it behind closed doors.

The most AMAZING thing was the Idiot on the Island giving us a 4th (!) for Krapo!!!

I think he was referring to Mike Keenan.

I agree with Wally, this was highly unprofessional of Foley. At the same time, if Blackhawks management didn't do anything about it then what Foley said is what management was thinking too. I have no beef with that.

And the rant was just awesome. He said what he had to say, put some facts in there, and said it all in a cool manner. That was flipping awesome.

"Brian McCabe for Dean Martin"....he wrote this tirade the night before rofl

Krapo simply couldnt get out of the way of those shots. Krapo and "no fear" in the same sentence - never thought I'd hear that.

Foley was just saying what every Hawk fan and Hockey fan knew ... Krapo was a piece of *****

from what I have seen from Karpotsev he was a pretty solid Dman...I remember him blocking shots all the time....I can't believe he was portrayed that bad.

You can put him in the HOF if you like but the sad truth is the guy will remembered in Chicago for his lackluster effort and weak play on the ice. The next check he throws will be his 1st.

krapo played like he was in a beer league, but unfortuneately it was the NHL.

He goes into the Mkie Smith HOF

Knowing the type of player Keenan usually wants on his squad, what do you think he sees in Karpotsev?

He sees the '94 NY Ranger(Keenan's Team) not the '05 waste of roster spot.
