Yeah, I honestly don't want Emery on the team after that. Holtby clearly had no interest in fighting and isn't anywhere on par with the fighter Emery is yet Emery jumped him and just went all-out on him.
I don't mind Simmer, Schenn and Lecav going... shows some heart...
but god, Emery is scummy doing that in my book. Not nice to watch at all.
The refs should be disciplined as well for not stopping Emery... do they not know who he is.
Yah. I actually felt bad for Holtby there. It was like watching some MMA fighter beat up someone from the stands. CSN had a good closeup of him in the crease before play resumed. I think he was making sure he could open both eyes.
I can understand people liking the show of emotion, but for god's sake where was that when they were down 2-0 or 3-0? It's senseless at this point because the game is out of reach and at that point in the game just reflects poorly on the team. Emery going after Holtby was nonsense.
I agree on the emery thing but I couldn't help but smile an laugh a bit.
I'm ashamed to admit that I loved that whole sequence
I was up for it when Simmer went, and Schenn looked to start... and I laughed when Emery came down the ice... like 'ah well, at least something to get some blood pumping'... but when Emery basically ripped the mask off and beat him repeatedly even as he is trying to go down made me cringe.
