Bolded #1: Since when is a clean open-ice hit called "intent to injure"? If that is the case, close up shop and let's all go watch some basketball, because hockey officially sucks now.
Bolded #2: Don't you mean "Go cry to the media when you are pouting!" when speaking of Tort's comments?
1) I love open ice hits. I am saying Laviolette was under the impression that Vitale was sent out to injure someone - whether or not that's true, I don't know - I was not on the bench. In thinking such, this is why I think he was so upset.
2) Yes, I agree. That doesn't mean I don't love what Torts said. There was a ton of truth to it. I don't like when everyone cries to the media but that doesn't mean I dont agree with what he said.
As I said in the other thread - if either team thinks they're going to get out of this series unscathed, they're TOTALLY wrong. Laviolette will have his team goon it up if they know they're done and frankly, the Penguins are a dirty team anyway.
If only they had some goons that actually scared anybody. Go back and watch the Youtube of Shelley and Engelland. I think Jody is still bleeding.
