Brashear is a hero

As much as I dislike the Flyers I just wanna say congrats on a job well done tonight by Donald Brashear. Kasparitis has been ILLEGALLY injuring players for years and tonight Big Donald wanted to put an end to it. Kasparitis is a total coward and tonight he was exposed as just that. I wish more people had the courage of Mr. Brashear.

i was actually gonna post a thread about this. Brashear isnt the best player on the flyers but what he did tonight was the highlight of the game. he put kasparitis in his god damn place. I honestly think it was revenge for gagne. Yes, im am now back to being a donald B. fan kasp deserved that punishment "what a puss". as soon as he grabed his jersey i knew it was on.

kasparitis just got owned

No, the guys who handed you the win was the entire team of misfits who shouldn't be playing in the NHL. Brashear certainly helped it along with the penalties, but the entire Flyers team lacks passion and intensity and are easy picking for any team with the slightest bit of talent and work ethic.

eh that's kind of true also...they did look real good at times, and definatly outplayed the rangers badly in the first period (though i claim the rangers were shaking off the rust after the long break)

but their defense was brutal out there at times...

dunno, your team still scares me when the rangers play against them, but maybe that's just because of the past many years...

what part was appreciated the double minor he took or the fact that he barely touched kasparitis and got like an extra 50mins of penalties...horrible i really expected richards to step up and fight after that sad display, he was the only one who played hard

The only way to get to Kasparminus is to "Bertuzzi" him because he's such a gutless coward that he'll never fight anyone face to face. Brashear was totally justifed tonight, for all the ILLEGAL cheapshots Kaspar has dished out he deserves to get beat down. I just wish Brashear would've really done some damage to Darius, the same Darius has done to so many others.

do you think that this little amusement you got from Brashear making a fool out of himself really going to change the way Kaspar plays the game??

Please.

Kaspar is not a fighter. Regardless of what you maye want from him in terms of "defending" his play.

This is a very comical post as is most of the posts I've read regarding Kaspar and the fact that a non-fighter didn't drop the gloves against a guy like Huggybear.

Keep'em coming cause this is pretty funny.

A question for you then, sir:

Would you regard Kasparaitis as a tough hockey player?

Not just face to face, but never was the key word.

regarding the damage that kaspar has done, me a river.

you're just lucky that Floppa didn't get nailed earlier in the game or your season would have been TOAST.

The turn overs and lake of coverage...horrible. Lets leave Jagr alone on Esche with another ranger for a 2-0...genius.

Brashear did great tonight. He hasnt for awhile for situations just like these were if he touches a man he gets a double minor and carter and pitkanen can do much worse and have much worse done to them and it is considered "activity after the wistle" and let go. Brashear even came out and said it in the post game interview.

Brashear

So you're saying one of the Flyers should take out Jagirl and we'd be a team of heroes for having the courage to injure a star player?

I wouldn't regard him as a tough player.

I't refer to him as a gritty player to play against.

I personally would not want to play against him because I'd probably deliver a two hander across his head, but tough? No.

then I'd have no problem with it.

I had no issues with the nice shoulder to shoulder hit that flattened Jagr in the first by Petr.

It happens.

kaspar is tough in that he'll take whatever is dished out to him and deliver it back twice as much

but this seems to be headed back in the "kaspar won't fight so he's a pansy!" direction


and yeah, the thing is that while maybe it was entertaining for you to watch brashear try to beat up kaspar...it's not gonna change the way kaspar plays one bit. brashear didn't "get kaspar back" at all...hell, kaspar was laughing when brashear was escorted off the ice.

next flyers game and kaspar is going to be hitting as usual. it doesn't stop him from playing his game

Well played.

But, I still believe even "gritty" players need to stand up for themselves. Kasparaitis throws the big hits and if those hits are against star players, you should be able to back it up, not tuck tail and run (especially if you cause injury). Panasonic Youth pointed out in another thread that as marginal as Scott Stevens was, regarding his hits and clean/dirty play, he would at least stand up and fight if someone came looking for him. That's how I feel the game should be played.

But say Hatcher came flying across the ice (now bear with me, I know Hatcher and flying don't really go together!) and nails Jagr in the head, like Kaspar attempted to do with Forsberg, would that be okay?

So its Okay for a scrub defensman to intentionally hurt star players (Gagne, Lindros etc) and then when hes confronted he puts his tail between his legs and runs. Darius Kasparminus is exactly the opposite of what hockey is all about. The great thing about hockey is that these players police themselves, thats why fighting will always play a part in the NHL. One day Kaspar will have to pay for what he has done in his career, I just hope I'm watching when it happens.

not shared by everyone.

But I can respect your opinion.

Yes it's OK. hockey is hockey and guys are going to get hit, sometimes they get hurt.

Kaspar gets a bad rap, but when was the last time he got thrown out of a game because of a hit that was deemed to be dirty? You're going to say the Buffalo game this year, but that wasn't a dirty hit and Colie Campbell recinded the game misconduct that was handed out.

It's been years (well before he came to the Rangers) since Kaspar has laid a dirty hit on anyone.

I just don't see the rational behind "if he hits people, he should defend himself" mindset

Jeez, I just saw the highlights and why this went down. At least Brashear KNOWS his job. I can't fault him for what he did. No one will f with Flyers players.

He's really not. He's willing to throw cheap, dirty hits, but the guy is also more than happy to take his share of hits, and he's taken them from every player in the league including at least one from Brashear tonight. He just won't fight. Like Tikkanen and Samuelsson and many of the league's other elite pests, he'll happily turtle and then laugh when the other player is forced to the box and Kaspar's team scores on the PP. We saw him do just that.

He got exactly what he wanted out of Brashear and then laughed at him. I understand it soothes the wounded pride to call that cowardice, but it's not cowardice. It's cheap and tremendously frustrating - having had to deal with him in an Isles sweater was impossible for me - but it's not cowardice.

Come on. We can count Kaspar's career fighting majors on one hand. The guy doesn't fight, so one need not be particularly brave to challenge him. He's not going to throw 'em; he's just not. Nedved could challenge Kasparaitis, and he'd skate away.
