When some of his teammates include Rinaldo, Hartnell, Talbot, Pronger, you can say he is.

Awesome guys they all are. Wouldn't trade any of them. You hate them. That means job well done.

Everyone who wines about hair pulling has clearly never been in a fight like this before, when you're trying to get a grip on an opponent sometimes you accidentally get a handful of hair.

It's not as though you consciously decide to do it, and it lasts for about a second once you've realized what you got a hold of. Surprised so many freak out over this.
This is bang on. I've been in dozens of hockey fights and there was once where I was in a scrap and didn't really have a great hold of his jersey. I had him by the collar and my hand slipped off. Before I even knew what was happening I had a hold of his hair. This particular fight was a "spur of the moment" type scrap and it didn't really follow the code. I felt embarrassed about it immediately but it is what it is. It is difficult to explain to someone who has never been in a situation where someone else is literally trying to cave your face in.

Just because you love them, and they do their jobs well, doesn't mean they aren't dirty.

The only people who should get fined are those damn officials who should have broken up the fight.

The above mentioned, add Briere, Shelly, and there used to be Carcillo.

The Flyers are easily the easiest team to hate in the East.

The good news is their ******** doesn't appear to work against solid teams like NYR or Boston.

Looks like you're just too strong and manly for the rest of us.

I like Sestito, the one on the Devils that is. Solid 4th liner who isn't a complete goon.



Wasn't this Sestito sent down to the AHL for being a huge goon during the preseason/beginning of the season? Maybe (after 3 fights in a night) its time to send him down again.

Prust looked like he threw a few punches when the refs had Sestito tied up dirty move after dirty move.

Typical Flyers garbage. Sestito is the guy that Richards said "this must be like fantasy camp for you, eh?" at the winter classic. Fortunately, the Rangers don't give in to the goon squad's garbage anymore.

No. That is their other circus clown, Rinaldo.

Wait you cant pull hair in a fight, is that an NHL Rule? Last time i checked the only rule for fighting was "whatever it takes to win"

When you're pulling a guys hair like a *****, you deserve to get popped like that.

Or you guys are just better right now? Its still pretty remarkable they're at the level they are now considering everything. Wouldn't get too comfy being at the top of the Atlantic Division cause that could change FAST with most of those teams having nowhere to go but up.

Well I'm certainly not going to whine about grabbing a person's hair for a second or two in a fight, as it happens every now and again.

I think that people in a thread should have a bit of real world experience prior to calling other people out over it.

You can't be serious... If it's that simple why is it so rare? I'm not blaming the entire flyers club but I can't stand when fans are so blind just because of the jersey they are wearing. I have never once pulled anyones hair in a fist fight. And I have never gotten my hair pulled. I can't see how anyone can defend this neanderthal.

The whole thing was about Rinaldo skating around headhunting and than refusing to stand up for himself when he was challenged by everyone on the ice basically. Simmonds stepped in for him once and Sesisto three times lol.

Obviously Prust wanted Sesisto tossed by making him fight a third time. After he was tossed it was absolutely ridiculos to watch Rinaldo fle to the bench after every shift he took.

It was just a odd situation and it definitely effected the Flyers team as a whole. It seemed like the air went out of them completely when Rinaldo's escape from the MSG started.
