So which one of the smurfs and wimps on the team is next on the hit list? My money is on Eberle in Montreal with either Eller or Prust running him though the boards while the rest of the team cowers and any tough guys we have remain stapled to the bench with instructions not to inflict retribution or touch anyone.
Looks like the stars are on their own after the lack of response displayed by the rest of team. And not just today either. Might as well get your stick up and let the guy coming at you eat a stick shaft sandwich because that's all they can do to protect themselves at this point on this sorry-ass team.
I have it on good authority that this photo of him in the dressing room is legit.
For years I have lurked these boards, multiple times each day. While often left laughing after reading the contributions from a variety of select self-anointed "expert" posters, this was one of the only image-posts that made truly laugh out loud. Thank you!
Doesn't really matter. Sens were taking liberties with just hammering hits and some dirty play all game. Tried to intimidate. The idea of enforcement doesn't stop this stuff at all.
Sens were definitely running around looking for crushing hits. Virtually every Oiler forward got pasted in this game.
Ya enforcement doesn't work. I honestly think that kind of feisty attitude can be instilled in guys. Neither Smid nor Petry were mean by any stretch when they came into the league. They weren't even particularly physical. Now they're both tough customers. Not bruisers but tough to play against.
That's never gonna be Eberle or Nuge's game, but Hall and Yakupov could certainly play a lot tougher, at the very least like Perron and Gordon.
But also, the Sens lost. I guarantee the guys would rather be pasted all 82 games and win them than get through games unscathed but lose them.
maybe maybe not. if it's ligament stuff you can walk on those you just wind up with no stability in the joint. Couple years ago I recall one of the Blue Bombers qbs took a hit on the knee, finished the game so everyone thought it would be fine next thing you know it's torn ligaments and done for the year.
