I'm floored. You think Subban missed practices or showed up late to stuff? And he never thought he was bigger than the team either. It's called SWAG, the triple low five, etc.. thats all that therrien put an end to.. his showboating. And he's become more humble as a result.
But nothing like Seguin if those rumors are true.
Part of where the Habs wanted Subban to "grow up" was in terms of being on time(as in 15 minutes before) for meetings, practices etc plus the more individiual celebrations and other stuff, playing more of a team game, picking his spots when to pinch or jump up.
The fact that it wasn't about partying was a good thing though, that can be hard to shake in some players.
Kadri's suspension is a blessing for Scott tonight, otherwise the laffs would have to hold him back from unleashing his wrath on Scott
I'm kinda hoping there's a brawl in the Leafs/Sabres game tonight but it will likely be a tame game with only be a couple of minor penalties called.
Back to the Kadri hit on Backstrom.. After seeing the angle in this gif earlier today I didn't realize the impact on Backstrom's head was as severe as it was.. Kadri got him in the head worse than I thought he did and he's lucky he only got 3 games IMO.
Nobody wanted Versteeg because he's not a good fit for this team.
He's a good fit on the Hawks, and they gave up a couple players that'll likely be career AHLers.
No. What people were saying is that Versteeg was DONE. A DONE player isn't a good fit for anybody. If the said player, while smaller, would be an awesome player, I'd trade for him, and get rid of all the other smaller players. Versteeg was struggling...we'll see if he can get his tough back with a great team like the Hawks....unless the depth is so great there that he still isn't able to put up points. We'll see. I didn't really believe he was done, he is clearly slowing down. And it could be a good trade for the Hawks, I do believe Hayes could amount to something.
Good thing Boston ****ed up on that trade. Seguin is looking like he's reaching his potential in Dallas. They would've been a great team for a long time with him. Now? They've got Rask and still a strong D but they don't have that superstar scorer that they've always lacked.
Nice to see them ****up for a change.
Problem with Boston ****ing up in a trade is that they still are able to get something valuable AND they don't suffer from a ****ed up. That's even more frustrating......Chiarelli will never suffer from bad trades until his team win. The day they start losing, and can't get some young players going and witness Seguin doing wonders...THEN he'll be criticized. But I don't see that happening soon.
The West is really kicking our ass. The Bruins are the 2nd best team in the East and they would'nt make the playoffs in the West. I know there are other variables, but still... Vancouver is on par for a 97 pts season, but would be out of the playoffs.

I think the elbow of Sedeinberg on Ryan can bring him a suspension. It was intentional.
I just missed the play but heard the Sens guys discussing it when I turned on the Sens/Bruins game. Gonna have to find a video.
Edit.. Just watched the play.. Should've been a penalty for sure but not sure if it's suspension worthy IMO. Don't think I've ever seen anyone do that with their legs after being hit like Ryan did though. That was a little bizarre TBH.
Just saw a different angle and maybe a 1 game suspension might be in order for that hit.
Eberle and Hall are rumoured party boys as well. I would have to think that pretty much all young NHLers are party boys. They're all young and rich with a lot of free time.
What does that even mean? Who doesn't party in their life?
This applies to any young person. I'm young, not rich, not in the NHL, not necessarily with a lot of free time, but you could call me a party boy too by your definition. Does that mean I'm not a professional and I can't show up and deliver at work? Not at all.
