Alfredsson's the real embarrassment

After tonights game with the Leafs Alfredsson had this to say about Tie Domi

Alfredsson said Domi ``embarrassed'' the league by going after Van Allen.

Alfredsson, not Domi, is the embarrassment to the NHL. Domi plays the game it should be played - if someone wants to play cheap or go after a star player they should be prepared to defend themselves. If Van Allen doesn't want to fight someone like Domi then he shouldn't go around using his stick on Ed Belfour. An enforcer playing the game it should be played isn't an embarrassment to the league. A guy hitting another player head first into the boards from behind is an embarrassment, a guy sticking his knee out while he's on a PP to injure another player (and theres NO other reason for that) is an embarrassment.

Fans who over-react to players comments are sometimes embarrassing as well.

There was no knee on the Sundin hit, it's a ridiculous farce that people are attempting to claim that there was simply because of the call. The replay is very indicative, and heck even Harry *** Neale said it wasn't a knee. Just like McCabe's penalty on Hossa was elbowing, not charging. The refs were making poor call decisions all night.

I had no idea what you were talking about until i just saw Van Allen say something about gouging on Sports Centre. That thing hasnt even been mentioned on this board, or any thread I have read, so I have no idea who is agreeing with it. Nevertheless, speculation on what did or did not happen has absolutely - nothing - to do with a supposed kneeing penalty that, thanks to actual video proof, was not there

You mean the Ed Belfour that was hacking at Sens players all night like a lumberjack? That Ed Belfour?

Well... it was a dirty game from the start by both teams. Can't deny that. Both teams were physical leafs just stepped it up a bit. But... based on video there was no gouging either. Either way...it was yesterday its over. 5-1.

I don't recall what leaf player got driven head first into the boards from behind, but I distinctly remember Nolan's hit on Spezza being that way. That was the dirtiest hit all night and it went unpenalized simply because TO was already shorthanded.

The reffing last night was stupid for both sides...

Actualy, I don't think the reffing was that bad. They called just about everything and if our special teams was actualy on or Belfour was a little more off it could have been another story completely.

maybe domi's hit was cheap and he shouldnt have done it, but there was a reason for it. He was trash talking with Neil and on his way out him and van allen ran into each other. If you were Domi, you would have thrown a punch thinking that van allen wanted a piece of you. On the other hand, Alfie's hit or knee, whatever, on Sundin was very easily avoidable. Maybe if it was a tie or one goal game he should have taken him out to possibly save the game, but with 3 minutes left and down by 3 goals, u dont stick your knee out at someone you appanrelty have " lots of respect for"

You're right it was avoidable. Alfredsson obstructed Sundin and should/did receive a penalty. That said, it was clearly not a knee and it was the wrong call. The replays clearly showed there was no knee involved.

Similar to the McCabe on Hossa penalty, the refs miscalled the penalty as charging, where in actuality it was elbowing

Knock it off with the trolling. You won't like it if I have to come back here and deal with anymore complaints.
