Surely no one on the bench gives a **** / suddenly becomes motivated when they see that. It was just a way for Letang to FU the crowd... in which case he should've just flipped them the bird and taken his fine.
And that's all it was when Talbot did it. Except we won, and he was lauded.

To me that was a disgusting and purposeful attempt to injure another player and it only got a 2 min minor and I think that was simply just because Neal got away unscathed from it. That is the worst play of the game and if there are any suspensions coming from this debacle it should be for that.

As for the game itself, Bylsma kept Fleury in there way too long. It was clear early on that it just simply wasnt Fleury's day and bounces werent going his way. The rest of the game really hinged off of that, once the score got out of hand the garbage really flew.
Grossmann's knee was very overlooked. That was a disgusting thing to do and he should be suspended a game but probably won't be. I echo the Asham should be gone to however obviously. I'm rooting for you guys to pull of the miracle by the way.

He was also lauded because it was original and because he goaded Philly into being undisciplined when they were ahead. Again there is no parallel to today's game and in any case, what's the point of copying that gesture. It just didn't sit right with me and it wouldn't have if we'd won either.

I didn't feel as bad about it because both Schenn and Giroux had consussions this year, and they're not exactly tough to say the least.

Yeah, I have to think if we won today's game people would want Letang's "Shhh" as an avatar and how he showed Talbot and he took it back just like Rupp and Jagr's salute.

It may be different situations, but in a winning mood, I'm guessing some people would look past that.


Also, that Flyers team was coached by John Stevens, had Biron in net, and wasn't exactly the same one we see today. They had cracks and while Talbot sat in the box the Pens scored 2 goals.

Yah it was far from the worse thing that happened today I just thought it was a dumb gesture on his part, under the circumstances.

It was, but I think in hindsight we would've thought what Talbot did in 09 dumb too had we lost

Valid point but I don't think I would've thought it was cool either way. But that's just me.
