Really OT: What happened after the game?

Sam is quoted as saying in the second to last paragraph in his latest blog..

Quote:
"Meanwhile, a strange scene in the hallway after the game, with the Islanders all venturing over to the Rangers side, for no other reason than they were ignoring the curtain separating the two teams. At one point Comrie walked by with girlfriend Hillary Duff, who is roughly 3 feet tall."
Anyone know anymore about this? I wonder if they interacted at all, and if any words were exchanged?

Yeah I heard it all it went like this:

Comrie: "You want some of this Rangers!? Flip you guys!"

Various Rangers: "Flip you man, flip you!"

Hilary Duff: "Like yah, you are what-ever and the Icelanders are like hella cool!"

I'm pretty sure thats what they said

I was there, and I can confirm that this is what happened.

The Islanders are trying to send the message that they are a tough team. Since they aren't contenders, that's really all they have.

"Look at how tough and unruly we are! Messages! We're sending messages! Rawr!"

Pretty much that.

Haha, I was thinking the same thing. It's going to suck playing the Islanders all year, they won't be able to out-play us, so they'll just be taking cheap shots each game.

Someone in those comments had a cool nickame for Orr:

"Colton the Barbarian"

I don't know if that guy came up with it, but I like it!

You can't compare Hollweg and Simon. Hollweg brings energy and presence despite his oft-questionable hits. Simon has just become a goon and is looking for nothing more than to fight. Example: last night. Hollweg throws a few hits, Simon guns for him. Hollweg scores. Simon is ejected.

All I know about last night was good old fashioned hockey that I sorely miss watching. Did it get out of hand? Possibly. But, I think the rivalry may be back where it used to be IMO. There is no question who the more talented team is, but the Isles will be a ***** to play against this year and i think you guys are right about them going out last night and proving a point. I was very surprised that Simon was actually dressed this game. Then I thought maybe they wanted to get this stuff out of the way before the regualr season started.

Comrie must have needed Hillary's protection when he was leaving the rink.

It's a bit strange to me, still, though, considering he won't be able to play come the beginning of the season, I'd have thought that the Isles would want to use that roster spot for someone who needs to get warmed up.

Were you at the game? Any players on either side impress for reasons other than fisticuffs?

I agree to an extent. It's nice to see a good old fashioned throw down every once in a while, but I do think it got out of hand and interrupted the flow of the game a bit. Fighting is part of the sport, but not the entirety of the sport. I'd prefer this stuff not to happen in the preseason, as I'd be damn pissed if we lost a guy to injury (through fighting or otherwise overly rough play) during a meaningless game.

I was at the game and I thought Staal looked good and so did Pock. For the Isles I thought that Vasicek had a good game and the comrie line played well. Staal is going to be a stud.

You do realize that Simon had 10 goals and 27 points in 67 games last year right? I hate Chris Simon as much as the next Ranger fan, but he has a little scoring ability as opposed to Hollweg. Hollweg is a great energy player and a little more offense may develop at some point, but he has 8 points in his career (120+ games).

nyr...

as we all know, not every game will be like that. Once in a while a game will get out of hand and that's fine. It's good to see passion in a game and guys sticking up for eachother (especially if that guy's reluctant, like Montoya, who just wants to prove himself as a goaltender). You don't want to see some of the cheap shots (no need to go into who gives out more cheapshots, Hollweg has had more than his share of majors from behind and has been suspended once or twice, I believe), but a little melee once in a while never hurt a sport.

I was in DC when Simon scored 29 goals for the Caps. I can also remember him playing on our top line part of one season . Simon is a goon and he is dirty at times, but he still has a decent pair of hands and above average hockey sense for a role player..

I totally agree that a melee doesn't do anything to hurt the sport. I just don't want to see guys getting boarded and sucker punched in the preseason (or ever, but particularly preseason), and I definitely don't want to see Montoya "fight" like he did. I would have loved this in the regular season, I'm just a bit of a worry-wort when it comes to my players engaging in fisticuffs in the preseason.

Simon also gets a lot for minutes than Hollywood does.

You're right, he does, but my main point was that Simon (although dirty and gutless at times) can score... in response to the quote, "You can't compare Hollweg and Simon .... Simon has just become a goon and is looking for nothing more than to fight." I can't stand Chris Simon, but he can do more than just fight and take cheap shots.
