Gross is saying concussion on Twitter. Unconfirmed, but if so thats ****ed up. Should be a suspension, period.
If McD is out then suspending Pac is useless. Who cares? He should have been pummeled without mercy during the game. Once he leaves scott free I have no interest in thinking about the Canadiens and their hideous fan base. And btw, F-Prust.
What's all this classless nonsense? It's hockey. It's supposed to classless. When I play I will take a guy's head off to win. What are you talking about? If Torts is stupid enough to put Danny out there in a decided game then that's what happens. Who wants to be classy anyway? I want to win a cup and if not then keep my self respect. As a Ranger fan I lost some self respect tonight. Thanks Torts.
Thanks for this.
I always hated the term 'classy', it's over used and I don't really want to see too much of it out there.
I wonder if the Rangers believe that it is 'classy' to not respond and make the opposition pay a price for their transgressions.
As for taking a slapshot on the 5 on 3, go for it. I know I would. I wouldn't give a rat's azz about the other team, within the boundary of normal play. Blocking that shot was the problem, nothing wrong with the Habs on that play.
You guys cant have it both ways..The majority of you want to roll 4 lines of skill with no deterents...Now your all crying about us not going for blood because of Mac truck..What a bunch of hypocrites! Majority of you dont know how to put a team together.
Assume the Rangers will monitor Del Zotto tomorrow (they better ****ing be practicing because they sure as **** don't deserve a day off). He skated today. If they think he can go they don't need another body. Play it safe and call up Vernace or McIlrath if DZ isn't feeling it yet. A positive sign that he skated today, leads me to believe he'll be okay to go on Tuesday.
Staal - Stralman
Del Zotto - Gilroy
Eminger - Bickel
Bleh hit wasn't really that bad. Left his feet obviously but it wasn't an entirely vicious hit or anything. Just a lot of complaining since McDonagh is injured on the play. Doubt there would be much conversation about the hit if no injury resulted from it. Immediately after the hit it is not like there was outrage that it was only 2 minutes and not a major (before it was even known that McDonagh was out).
And nobody on the team can make even a token effort, even if they do not fall into one of those lovely fighter classifications I read about all the the time (he's middleweight, he's a heavyweight, he's...blah blah blah)??
How about just go fight some a-hole when they deserve it, and forget about winning, who cares who 'wins'.
It's the thought that counts. And don't think for a second that it doesn't mean a ton to the guy who got injured, the guy you are making a statement for, like McDonagh in this case.
Edit: I cannot believe how people miss the whole ****ing point about what real fighting is.
that is not suspension worthy, i hate the canadiens and pax is a little ***** but mcdonagh put himself in a really vulnerable position there. he turns and lowers his head at the last second which was a mistake. the thing i dont like is pax could of just checked him straight on instead he chooses to turn his shoulder into him and this with the head being low just rubs mcdonagh out. stupid hit but damn the ref standing ten feet away did not even call this a penalty it was someone way up ice. i dont see him leaving his feet either. hope mcdonagh is ok.
