But that doesn't work like it did in the 70's. Skill and team toughness wins now. Cup years were tight teams that were tough and skilled, this team is neither. You would not of preferred team come out hitting hard and putting up 4 goals to try and get some confidence to pull out of this mess.

You are one of the senior members here, how can you be happy with the direction this team is heading in ?

Not really. Just Laughlin repeating over and over how Emery was going to have the book thrown at him and then one of their other guys (not Beninati) saying how Schenn suckerpunched the guy he fought. Pretty much what you'd expect from the Capitals' feed.

What Emery did was despicable and just embarrassing on every level. You seem to be fine with it though.

Nah, they were pretty laid back.....7-0 men vs boys laid back....

One of them did say "didn't Emery used to be a boxer?!" Thogh, that was pretty funny.

They just said they can't wait for the return at verizon....hopefully there will be more focus on a tighter game that time around

Punching someone in the head has been part of hockey for a long time, that's why there is a specfic penalty for it.

Actually, it's not. It's awarded a five minute major for being done.

you don't usually see this combination of toughness and skill on one roster.

If the shoe was on the other foot and we were up 7-0, and Tom Wilson beat the ever living snot out of Giroux, would you be touting tough hockey? I think not.

Surprised no-one in here has done a full on Steve Downie yet and crosschecked a 'team mate' in the face!

All I said was the Flyers don't deserved to b called dirty cause Emery is an idiot. Fans cheering and the announcers don't have much to do with the on ice play which is what's being called dirty.

Why are they waiting to play now? 2nd period was a no go for some reason.

Fighting is illegal. Hence the penalty.

Except when one player doesn't want to fight and even goes out of their way to not fight and gets punched in the face anyhow that's called being jumped.

I'm not proud but I found it entertaining. And I hope the fans that paid money to watch this disaster found it entertaining too.

The few fans defending it are making it so much worse. I know it's a minority on this forum right now but it's still just embarrassing.

I bet you haven't seen a team this bad since the Pens prior to tanking for high draft picks.
