Pronger said that when he skated over to Bert and put a hand up that "he flopped to the ice like a guy who weighs 120lbs" and he "acted like an ice dancer".

Sounds like fighting words to me...
The quenneville quote was just silly. The guy is clearly bitter that Bertuzzi has taken out two of his defenseman with clean hits.

Pronger's quote was pretty predictable. What is he supposed to say? "Yeh, I'm a moron and my lack of discipline cost us two points." It's understandable...pronger was upset and looking for an excuse. Now I'm not saying that definitively Bertuzzi did not dive; I really don't know. My point is that it's going to take a lot more than a soundbyte from a heavily-biased pronger to convince me.

No offense, but who's going to stick up to him this year? Jordin Tootoo? Marek Zidlicky?

Obviously you weren't following the results of the TEAM TOUGHNESS TOUGH TEAM TOURNAMENT!!1!

Anyways I wasn't really looking to start that whole Nashville pissing contest again, even though I had a feeling I would when I posted that. Sure Bertuzzi punched Skrastins when he wasn't expecting it, but Skrastins was the one who initially came in trying to start something late in the game. He was probably just expecting to start a little scrum or something...well guess what, when Bertuzzi's been hooked and high-sticked all night by scrubs like Bill Houlder and Cale Hulse, he's probably not going to be in a charitable mood.

I quickly went through the last three seasons and found 5 fighting majors for Bertuzii. Boucher, Fischer (??!!), Hnidy, S. Smith, and J. Smith. The fact is since he has arrived he doesn't need to really fight anymore. He isn't a particularily cheap player just a strong one that finishes his hits and does some face washing so people dropping their gloves to get at him typically doesn't happen. If they do he will drop them. I'd much rather have him with the gloves on then running around every 10 games like Guerin looking for a fight. Ask Iginla how smart it was to get into a fight last year.

Actually, I have yet to see a good hockey post from Super_Joe. For all of Modano=God's homerish antics, he at least comes off intelligent when talking about hockey instead of consistently trolling to crap on another team's player.

Super_Joe,

Don't you realize that there is this thing called the "search" button? If pressed, it reveals the posters' most recent comments.

I have done this with you.

Let me give you some advice. You don't want to be drawing attention to yourself.

Because you are, if not an idiot, a person of clearly limited expressive ability.

I don't say you ARE an idiot -- it is possible that you have intelligence in the normal range, but merely have an inability to articulate interesting, novel, or insightful comments in this medium.

The point is, it doesn't feel good to laugh at another person, and it must surely not feel good to be laughed at. Please don't invite this behavior.

Your comments aren't insightful or thoughtful, they are usually a line or two at most, and are meant to draw attention to yourself and to make other people unconfortable. I don't recall you adding anything but inflamitory statements to any discussion other than the Avs. Thinking you have little to add to a discussion has very little to do with how Burtuzzi plays hockey. The fact that you think your are being funny and present your comments as light hearted, makes me think you are trying to find a way around getting banned while still being a troll.

Obviously Burtuzzi's game is up for criticism, but you've yet to post anything that shows you actually know a thing about him.

M=G may be a homer who is quick to throw insults, but at least he backs up his arguments with hockey knowledge. This "Super_Joe" guy has never demonstrated one iota of hockey knowledge. It's a shame that fans like him feed the perception that avs fans in general are ignorant about the sport.

The reason Bert is so good, is he doesnt even have to get on the score sheet to be a big influence in the game. Screening goalies, big hits, taking the abuse in front of the net. Sorry, Naslund is soo one dimensional.

I wouldn't say that he's a troll b/c he doesn't make comments just to piss people off, but I would say that I've never ever come across a person with so much hatred for another's team and their fans.

I'm pretty sure he's taken at least five years off of his life b/c of all his stressing as well as the hatred and anger he posesses against 'Nucks and their fans. Kind of silly really considering it's just a sport.

Jovo kicked the snot out of isbister after a dirty hit on Linden. The canucks killed the penalty and won the game.

I'm not talking about the play, I'm talking about the cowardly way he tried to talk Bertuzzi down after the game and downplay his own screw up. The hit on Linden was dirty, the hit on Jackman was clean.
