sarcasm son, sarcasm.

Just like the "I only saw him for about 10 minutes through all the players" comment.

Injuries are not funny

Oh yeah, just like when he said the league or "someone upstairs" really wants to keep the Senators in the series after they beat them because of a call that was hit or miss in a scrum at the end of the game.

He's all class, not a cry baby at all.

This is hysterical coming from Rangers fans who worship the all mighty Messier as if he was the classiest player on the ice.

Did he say, "Guess what attending media, we're going to start aiming for their heads now and concuss them all so that we can start getting pucks to Stay-Puft?" There's a thing called context. Sure, he could have worded what he said much better than he did. But it was immediately after the game, in the heat of the moment and he was most likely infuriated with how the 3rd period played out.

Stop acting like the guy put a bounty up.

Yes, which is why there is a certain risk in putting that vulnerable area of your body near ice level in an attempt to block a frozen 6 oz. piece of vulcanized rubber traveling at a high velocity.

If they want to jump in front of your shots, make sure they are bullets. The hope is at one point they'll start to think twice. It's the same as a punishing forecheck, eventually the defense will give you more room.

a one-timer, regardless of where the player shooting is aiming, can very easily hit someone in the face if they lay down in front of it.

Yes, I'm the delusional one. When a guy you like and idolize says he hopes his opponents get injured its praise worthy. When a guy on a message board says something similar, you're up in arms about it. I'm not even talking about penalties relative to the game, hoping and trying to injure someone is ok if the person saying it is employed by a team you like. Got it

I don't see what's wrong about what he said. It's common knowledge. If you want to keep players from throwing themselves in front of pucks like secondary goalies, make those shots do damage.

I understand that he was frustrated, but still. Not very smart.

I think most players are aware of this. You just keep it to yourself or lockerroom.

Also, if I were him I'd be more worried about the team getting shots on goal opposed to hoping for more of his teams shots to be blocked.

or if its deflected of a stick or takes a carom off a skate...

There's risk involved in the game and I'm sure at this level players know about it.

neither did the Devils. When you take slapshots and guys purposely get in the way, they might get hurt. If they do get hurt the Devils shouldn't feel bad about it.

"I'm okay with what he said, he just shouldn't of said it."

Would you prefer a bunch of Marc-Andre Clichés?

the risk goes up exponentially if you purposely put yourself right in front of the shooting lane.


ranger fans(save a couple) being drama queens and the rest of the league's fans being reasonable is what i see in this thread.

And if he meant it, why even say it to a journalist, you keep it on QT and keep it between you and your teammates. You would think?
No one says that.

Shot blockers getting injured is actually a major downfall to our collapsing system. Callahan and Drury both broke hands blocking shots last season. It got to the point where our equipment manager installed an extra kevlar piece on the top hand of all the Rangers' gloves. We always have guys missing shifts because they get dinged blocking a shot.

For the people that are acting like the Rangers shot-blocking system is unbeatable and is killing hockey, our shot blockers getting injured is actually a huge chink in the armor. It's a downfall in the system.

Again, I see no problem with what Brodeur said. To be quite honest, it may even be a decent strategy. I'm just surprised he said it to the media. Generally comments like that stay in the locker room.
