Ottawa Sun Crossed the Line

The Ottawa Sun posted an absolutely horrible picture/headline on the front page of there paper today and it doesn't deserve to go unnoticed. It is purely classless and should definitely prove to be good bulletin board material for the Canadiens going forward. Evidently, while most believe the hit was clean this is still disgraceful.

Here is the picture as well as a full rant on the topic:

No one click on the link. They don't deserve hits.

It's the Ottawa Sun. They're not exactly known for being classy. Had it been Karlsson bleeding on the ice, it would be a whole different story.

I put the Ottawa Sun on the same level as the National Enquirer. Considering how drab and conservative Ottawa is, I'm surprised this crap still exists there.

You can't hold Sens fans or the Sens organization responsible for the idiots at the Ottawa Sun Newspaper.

On behalf of most sens fans we apologize for our ****y newspaper. We find it just as classless as habs fans. It was trending last night so I guess they got what they wanted. *sigh*

Classless Sens Coach quote...from Melnick blog

And one other thing - While Paul Maclean has got this cutesy, let-me-play-dumb post game routine down pat - ("If I was, was that Eller who got hit? If I'm Eller I'd be really mad at #61 because he passed me the puck when I wasn't looking") how about at least expressing some concern for the guy?

I just want to say that as Sens fan, Ottawan (is that what we're called?), and a human being I find the Sun's cover to be repugnant.

They are a trashy tabloid, and other than the sunshine girl have no redeeming features.

If you want to laugh, try to go back and find their cover when Dalton McGuinty won the last provincial election, that might take the cake.

I will not read their paper anymore (except the sunshine girl page), and will mention this to a friend who writes for them (City Hall section).

Who gives a damn?

Our teams sucks if we lose to a team full of rookies and a skinny d-man who just came back from a lacerated ankle.

Throw some heat toward that inbred idiot Therrien who can't adjust for crap, or to Price who forgot how to keep control of his rebounds, or Desharnais or Bergevin or Gionta or half of our weak, inept team.

Eller didn't deserve that injury, Gallagher is trying his hardest, Subban is doing all he can... it's just the culture of sycophantic ******** that surrounds the Habs.

Who cares what Ottawa puts on their papers, it's not like the Habs can respond to it they need a rookie to throw hits.

On behalf of the city and fans of Ottawa: I'm sorry...

The Sun is trash. Eller deserves better than this. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for him.

I hope the Senators organization sanctions the sun for this crap... Don't let those buffoons travel with the team for the playoffs or don't grant them any interviews... Maybe then they'll stop giving the city and team such a bad reputation by publishing such trash.

Yeah, I live in Ottawa and it's well known that the Sun is trash.

They printed a story about a sports writer and his penis a few weeks ago (no joke).

Almost all the Sens fans disapproved of that cover.

That being said, the Habs didn't get this far, just to need a picture of a downed Eller as bulletin board material.

Guy's don't attack the Ottawa fans coming in here to show sportsmanlike qualities. That is classy of them. Imagine what leafs fans would be doing if they did this to Eller? They sure as hell would'nt be coming in here saying that this cover is disgraceful.

Dang, that's actually a burn on the ENQUIRER, not the Sun.

That's how trash the Sun is. At least the Enquirer is in on the joke. The Ottawa Sun still doesn't seem to realize that the rest of the country has been laughing AT them for the past decade, not WITH them.

Sens fan here.

Disgusting image. Ottawa sun should be ashamed of themselves...as ashamed of them as most anyone with sense would be.

Speedy recovery to Eller.

It won't happen due to a gutless hit by a Gryba.

Didn't know the sens were dirty i do now.

Now Eller is gone for the playoffs and so are our chances at the stanley cup thanks to a team that without it's goalie shouldn't be in the playoffs.

**** this ****.

Stay classy. Before talking about class take a look in the mirror.

I believe what he's saying is, "we find the picture classless in the same way that Hab fans find it classless".
