I like fights as much as anyone, but I didn't like that last punch by Rinaldo. He had already beaten Crombeen pretty good before then. The last one was just unnecessary. I hope Ryan Malone, Pierre-Cedric Labrie, or Eric Brewer go after Rinaldo before this one is over. It was nice to see that Marty St. Louis was pissed. I'm glad Tampa cares and won't let this go away.
Crombeen starts to tryn stand back up as he takes the "late" shot to the side of his head. In retrospect it's obvious he has no idea where he is by that point, but you can hardly fault Rinaldo for not realizing that that quickly. He actually seems to pull his last punch.
Have any of you been in a fight in the moment?, If were gonna knit pick, lets take in adrenaline and timing response as well. Rinaldo isn't the classiest guy, but the way you suggest things makes me question how you can be hockey fans.
Secondly, just be happy you didn't watch the sport in the 70's it would probably be to much for you.
It's part of the risk you have when you fight...hockey is hockey. Was one or two late? Possibly. When was the last time you said "Boy, that philly team was classy there..."
That being said, what does it take for a flyers fan to consider something dirty? I feel like flyers fans were surprised when Erskine got 3 games for his elbow on Simmonds because they didn't see anything wrong with it.
