Neither is funny when a) the Flyers have incurred 3 suspensions within 1 month and b) Kovalev rifled one into the net.

How can you say's it's blown out of proportion when 3 Flyers are suspended in 1 month? I wonder if that's ever happened before in the history of the NHL.

Alot of posts were deleted. It's not like the guys who come trolling here are regulars on the Habs board either.

You also have to keep in mind that the Habs fanbase on this board is several times bigger than the fanbase for every other team save maybe the leafs. For every "bad" Flyers fan, there will be 4 "bad" Habs fans, and the proportions aren't very different.

Oh good God. Take off the blinders man. It was a completely unnecessary elbow to the head after the whistle in a blowout game. What do you expect people to think?

I have noticed that our sheer awesomeness has blinded you. It happens when you watch the Flyers.

They need to teach anatomy in Quebec, I guess.

The top of your arm is called your 'shoulder'. The part in the middle where your arm bends is called the 'elbow'.

I hope this helps you later in life.

It's common knowledge in the rest of Canada, which heavily subsidizes Quebec to keep the whining babies quiet, that the Quebecois don't know their arses from their elbows. Now, it seems, they don't know their shoulders from their elbows either.

first off, elbow? it was a shoulder.

second, unnecessary? mike richards doesnt care if we're winning, losing, out of it, or still in it. he's going to play hard for a full 60 minutes and he's going to finish his checks.

shoulder hits to the head are legal. ask colin campbell.
Late shoulder hits to the head aren't though, and is intent to injure, since players generally relax a bit after whistles and aren't expecting to get clobbered.

Thank you for your rudimentary anatomy lesson. Neverthless, Mr. Richards was penalized for doing something illegal, wasn't he?

It's a ****ing fact, but because one 'tard said it the world took it as gospel, which really shouldn't come as any surprise.

Joe Thornton doesn't have a lot of points, so that makes him a playoff choker. Nevermind that he played his first playoff series at 18, with broken ribs another year, and was San Jose's best player both years running.

Martin Biron isn't a starting goaltender, but somehow he's posted 7 wins, a .940 save percentage, and has two shutouts playing behind a piss poor defense.

Steve Downie is a no talent thug, but he led Canada to two gold medals at the WJC, was named to the tournament All-Star Team, and paced third, second, third, and fourth in post-season scoring for every CHL team he's played for.

I could go on, but I think I made my point.

Richards hit Kovalev with a shoulder, and was penalized for using his elbow. The ref is a ****ing moron.
