And you think the Pens are dressing MacIntyre with the intention of having him go completely nuts like he did against the Falcons? Come on. My point still remains. MacIntyre is up to help insure that our players don't injured. He's meant to be a deterrent. If the Flyers play by the rules, I'm sure nothing happens. Do I think this type of stuff works? Not really. I personally don't believe grown men in a league full of alpha male personalities are afraid of anyone. If the game is going to get out of hand, it will happen whether MacIntyre is in there or not.
Mario was willing to see the team and leave the sport as he alluded to in the letter to bettman and now he's going to dress maybe the biggest goon in the league, just sounds a little against what he said a year ago. Remember Pitt has the final change so if they want to put him out and when it's up to Bylsma.
As in... hypocritical? We're coming awfully close to the standard troll handbook here. We're just missing a "tank" and a "Bettman" to complete the trifecta.
It's not about a clean hit, it's clearly about Crosby trying to break ankles with his slashing, then crying when somebody accidentally bumps into him going to the bench. He needs to be taught a lesson that being a hypocrite won't get him any sympathy from the other teams.
And Malkin needs to just shut up with his whining after every play, nobody can even understand him anyway! The whiniest Conn Smythe winner in history of the game.
needs MOAR sarcasm. if the mainboards were reddit-like, this would get upvoted like nobody's business.
I'm not a fan of this kind of stuff but I would laugh so hard if Mac went bat **** crazy and beat the piss out of their goaltender and attacked Giroux.
For all the stuff the Flyers fans have been saying about injuring Crosby and Malkin for the playoffs, serves them right to see a real crazy ass go to town on them. Somehow it's justified if they do it.
All the whine lately makes them sound like the Broad Street *******.
They put the broad back in broadstreet. Broadstreet Ballerinas, one and all.
I fully expect that if anyone does anything that even resembles dirty play on either Sid or Geno that Macca will jump off the bench and jump them and just take the ten game suspension because he will probably never play for us again anyway.
Closing this thread - we got way off topic. Wishing injury on anyone is a joke. We just want him to rest some of our stars and if anything gets crazy - he can fight and back it up. Gooning it up is nothing Pittsburgh wants to do.
