I honestly didn't have an issue with Yakupov's slide. I watched the end of that game and that place was electric and pissed as hell at the refs for the complete ******** wave off of RNH's GTG. Truthfully, the league could use some flair from the players. It's not like he laid his stick on the ice and pretended it was on fire. It was spontaneous and exuberant.
I didn't either. But this is Hf boards, where if you smile after scoring a goal someone might call it classless on the nhl forum lol. Would love to have more Yakupov personalities in the league too personally
