I mean you did ALL see that he was choking him to death as well.....but no sign of biting.

And about the fact that Grabovski CLEARLY wanted to fight Prust...can't wait the next game till he will clearly invite Prust to fight him. I mean, with no referees in the middle of them or anything. I mean, when Gorges, as stupid as it is, thought he had to show some nerves and went with McLaren he actually....went with McLaren. While Grabovski, aside form his biting and him putting his hockey stick in between his opponent's legs....he doesn't really want to fight. Trust me.
Let me clarify this for you since you still don't seem to get it:

The evidence demonstrates that Max had his arm over Grabovski's mouth, not in his mouth. You see no evidence of his body in Grabo's mouth. You don't see Grabo's teeth bite down. There is no DIRECT evidence that Grabo bit MaxPac. There is circumstantial evidence to suggest that he bit him.

Personally, I think he bit him and most Leafs agree with that. He won't be suspended because there is no definitive proof.

And give me a break with Prust. He's the one that got his team wrecked tonight. Prust had plenty of opportunity to fight McClaren, Orr, and Fraser. Instead, he wanted to act tough against our small player. Our players responded in kind. Prust can keep acting tough - it comes at the risk to health of your skilled players. Yeah Grabo doesn't want to fight Prust. Of course he doesn't - Grabo is a skilled player who gets paid to score. Prust is a scrub. Fight Leaf scrubs or you open the gate on Leaf thugs to go after Montreal skill.

Nice to see many non-leaf fans bringing some sense into this thread.

Pretty sure he only really posted it because of all the crap about this going on in the other threads, all of it from habs fans.

even leaf fan cant defend this

running up the score
biting
cheap shot via punch
cheap shot via kneeing

nice job leafs, even when you win (which is very rare) you screw up

habs wont forget this, and so will the rest of the league

dont be crying when another team runs the score on you, which will happen many times

You should talk to Carlyle now...he doesn't seem to be aware that Grabovski was that big tough guy now.
It's settled then. Grabo vs Prust. I'm sure this is how it works, right?

It was a fairly routine game, albeit lopsided in score, until the 3rd.

It's also why linemen who jump into a scrum ASAP are really risking injury to not only the two players but to themselves as well. It's always best to let the players tire themselves out and get past the fight response and have less of an adrenaline rush before getting between them.

Orr did what anyone who has his role and was in that situation would do. Bourque only has himself to blame.
Well I don't know how the leafs do it, but if a habs player gets hit or if the captain is about to get beat up, then other habs players will jump in to defend each other. It's a teams game, if you can prevent a captain or a teammate from getting beat up then you do it. And this isn't only for professionals, its a reaction for anyone who plays hockey or other team sports too so anyone who plays team sports should know that.

There's absolutely no chance Grabo will challenge Prust next game because he has no reason to. Your argument is terrible.

Grabo has stepped up against guys like Neil and Prust when he needs to, but he won't needlessly fight someone. Your point is terrible.
not only this but grabo doesnt need to step up and fight anymore.. you got beef take it out on orr, mclaren, frasor or brownie

You mean the part where plekanec dodged it and went flying through the air in the process?

^ Regardless of what Grabovski did, you shouldn't grab people's faces with your bare hand and try to rip it off.

Plekanec made a lateral movement to avoid the truck coming his way. Do me a favour and stand up right now. Lay your left shoulder down like you're going to drive it through somebody's chest and then look at your knee. That.. is why it appears Orr is leading with his knee.

Not a knee, but if I was Orr I'd be pretty happy I didn't connect on that hit.

not your fight? it was a giant scrum. what on earth are you talking about? Choking the crap out of him? he had his forearm around his mouth not his neck.

Basically the jist of this thread is. If anyone has there hands, forearms near your mouth in a scrum biting is acceptable.

people can justify anything it's quite amazing.
