He is a tremendous player no doubt, just a bit on the dirty side especially when frustrated/hit.

I wouldn't call Malkin dirty. He's more of a vigilante type player and he usually has a very good reason for doing what he does.

Guys stars in every sport getting special treatment is nothing new. It has been going on as far as I can remember back(80's or so) and I'm certain it's been going in longer.

It has nothing to do with preferential treatment to a team or city. It is all about keeping their best product on the field of play.
I don't get what the point of these sort of threads are when you start out NY questing the fan base of the player. What do you want? For themto admit their star player is dirty? What's the point?

Personally, I put Malkin in the same class as any other incredibly talented athlete who allows his emotion to take over, which often enough leads to stupid (or dirty) plays. Michael Jordan was the same way, though it's obvious that Malkin is not the Michael Jordan of hockey.

Often enough the most talented players are also the most emotional. They thrive on it. Emotion drives them. It does not excuse dirty plays, and Malkin absolutely should be called on his ****. It doesn't make him a despicable human being. It makes him a typical star athlete. Some dive. Some play to the edge.

Absolutely,Third. All star players play with an edge and sometimes lose their cool. Even the classiest of athletes your Yzermans and Sakics lost it from time to time. It happens with that much drive and passion in the heat of battle.

I think he should have gotten 3-5 games for that Staal thing. That was seriously nasty.

Malkin is nasty in the same sense that Messier was, he's highly competitive and will do anything to win. Mess threw his elbows up liberally and hardly ever faced suspensions as a result. However, one day he's going to have to answer for his actions.

Hitting Staal on the head with his stick was absolutely insane. When you get upset with another player you never hit them with your stick, let alone on the head. The fact that it went unpunished is just even more of a reason to

Yup, Staal didn't get Malkin in the head with his stick.

Both were equally at fault in that sequence.

Again, no penalty, no post review.

I love how 20 seconds after Keith Jones is telling us all how Vinny is a clean, honest player, he has to slip in the part of him throwing a late punch.

I don't really see how any of that is Malkin being dirty. Chippy, yes at the most, but dirty?


Guess we need a top 5 thread of Vinnys dirty plays.

Where was YouTube during the Gordie Howe days? Jesus, what about just the Messier days?

You know, the guys who have shrines dedicated to them in part for doing exactly the same things?

You guys are crying about this? Staal whacked Malkin, Malkin whacked Staal back. It's hockey, not Chess.

Furthering my point that the best of the best tend to be that way due to an extra gear. They step on the ice (or court or field), and all else becomes secondary to winning. Sure they intend to play within the rules. How can you win otherwise? But they are more prone to go overboard when they are provoked. It doesn't make them terrible people. It's just something we will never truly understand because we just don't have it.

Like I said, some dive. Some play on the edge.

You can always tell when he's going to do something stupid before he actually does it. The guy is the king of taking dumb penalties.

Its not the best players at all. All players in the league have these plays under there belts. Its just that the stars have all these weird people who stalk them.

You're right, slashing on the arm is wrong. Should be a penalty, i agree. They were both going at it and it's going to get heated. Two passionate players wanting to win a game, again, I agree. But you never hit another player on the head with your stick. I'd be way more obliged to agree with you had Staal skated up from behind him and whacked him on the head. But it was on the arm.

Agreed.

Unfortunately, what often gets lost in all this is how much physical, not-legal-but-hey-its-hockey abuse Malkin takes. It doesn't surprise me in the least when he blows a gasket.

OK, I will agree that all players who are playing their sport at the higher levels are like this.

It just seems to me that highly skilled players are better at being dirty

It is much easier to take offense to the crap stars take when compared to the crap grinders take. I don't think Malkin takes any more abuse than a player like Tootoo, but the abuse Malkin takes is reviled on another level. Therefore when he retaliates it is accepted much more than when Tootoo retaliates.

It doesn't make it any better for either player to play outside of the rules, though. A broken rule is a broken rule. Regardless of who is being abused or dishing out the abuse.
