Having watched the scrum (both live and several times in replay), there is no one you can single out as being THE dirty player. Iginla was quite dirty for his takedown of Vokoun. What do the Preds do? Just sit idly by?
Yes, wrapping your arm around the goalie mask and hauling him down is "quite dirty". He could have broken his neck or something!
It's an unnecessary, pro-wrestling style takedown of a goalie. Yes, very clean
Thank you, master of objectivity.
How much dirtier is it than the goalie leaving the crease to run a player into the boards? But I suppose that wasn't as "unnecessary". Hauling players down like that usually happens a couple times a game, mainly in scrums in front of the crease and in the corners.
The takedown was illegal, but dirty? I guess you have a pretty loose idea of what exactly dirty means. Iginla was more at risk of getting hurt in the play than Vokoun was.
Oh but wait, I am a homer because I don't like it when my team's star player gets cheapshotted by a guy wearing thirty pounds of equipment.
JMI, one just has to read your posts to make their decisions about the quality and "hockey knowledge" that you display.
All I'm saying.
Furthermore, I was not defending Vokoun hitting Iginla. He got what he deserved, but you have to realize that it was payback *a rivalry perse*. Iginla, took Vokoun down, and calling it unethical to hit Iginla when he is down doesn't seem right to me. You have to stick up for your guys.
