2) Trolling: Do not post topics with the sole purpose of starting a dispute. Note that a person disagreeing with your opinion is NOT trolling; keep it civil, even if you're sure the other person is wrong. When visiting the team forums please note that they are fan forums for that team and are here mainly for the enjoyment of that team's fans. Do not visit team forums to cheer against or demean their team, or cheer for their opponent. In other words, if you want to cheer for the Habs and criticize the Bruins, do it on the Habs board. And if someone is doing the opposite on the Bruins board, don't start flaming them to defend the honor of your team. Either ignore it respectfully disagree and move on. Wishing illness or injury on someone will almost always be regarded as trolling or offensive. We do not permit any forums to be used to demean/insult the fans of other teams. That is considered trolling. Copying posts from one HFBoard team forum to another for this purpose is considered trolling.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
I wonder if Crosby will hide when Schenn challenges him this time? Probably.
One of the few games where I'll say **** it, and dress all the goons.
Shelley-Sestito-Some random goon
Fear these lines Pens!
As much as I would enjoy this, and maybe we could borrow some of those cementheads the Isles rounded up for their Pittsburgh grudge match...

This is more like it, and in many ways would be more satisfying. I kind of liked the Flyers generally taking the "high road" last spring, and fans around the league supporting the Flyers and really seeing the Pens for the whining, diving, agitating pukes we already knew they were
Ehh it's going to be more of the same, Pens do what they do, play the way they do nothing will change with that team, I would like the Flyers to play them hard and win by at least 4, don't back down, I wouldn't want to see the team go out and go looking to injure someone, if a big check presents itself take it but play the game to win not to "goon it up"
At the very least Neal deserves and ass beating. He wont fight anybody like Sestito or Rinaldo so my money's on Simmonds, Hartnell, or Schenn. If he doesn't fight either of those guys then I say tell Sestito or Rinaldo to "make him fight". Don't give him an option just skate near him and start swinging.
You know what...**** it, throw Letang on the list too. Who the **** thinks they're tough cause they won a fight against Kimmo Timonen? That's just embarrassing.
The best thing that happened during that series this year was that Pittsburgh fell off their wagon and turned into the classless goons. In the battle of two teams who are generally polarizing outside their immediate fanbase, the Flyers emerged as the clear favorite, while the Penguins completed - in a span of three shifts - a complete heel turn nationally.
If anyone is a pro wrestling fan, that game was the equivalent to Bret Hart vs Steve Austin at Wrestlemania 13.
Pittsburgh didn't even get decent suspensions from it.
I'd rather be the dirty broadstreet bullies and win, than be the soft Philadelphia Flyers and lose.
So because a team takes the high road they're considered soft?!?...yup that definitely makes sense Oh and that so called "soft" tactic actually worked considering we used it to beat the dirty Broadstreet Bullies *ahem* oh sorry I meant Pittsburgh Penguins
Anyways, we shouldn't do anything and I don't expect the team to do anything. Neal got suspended and we moved on to the next round...that's it...it's over and done with.
Edit: Also, you can't take a dirty team and call them The Broadstreet Bullies, the Bullies were a lot more than just a dirty team.

Ray Ferraro did this great interview on OTR after game 3 against Pittsburgh; he said the number one thing that pissed the Penguins off the most was during the whole game Scott Hartnell kept turning to their bench and saying "You guys are losing your minds", of course that statement only made them go even more crazy.
Stuff like that pretty much confirms that taking the high road is better than going ape ****
