Is Bryan McCabe a dirty player?

After watching the Leaf's last two games, I saw a trend. After the Habs game, McCabe proceeds to crosscheck Koivu after the game is done. Tonight, he proceeds to nail Briere in the face AFTER the play in overtime. Briere gets up, and receives yet another punch to the face and falls down. No calls on either punch.

So, is McCabe a dirty player? I would say yes, he's an example of what shouldn't be allowed in this league.

It was in the chest smart guy.

He was frustated. He plays with an edge. (excuses used by Senator fans for Havlat)

It's funny how this gets related to Havlat. We aren't talking about him. Also, it was borderline face/neck...whatever the case, it was a double-fisted check in the area...which is dirty.

Brian McCabe did hit Briere. Once as the whistle was being blown and again after the whistle. Both hits were in the chest, and both were with his fist, not his stick. Both times Briere fell flat on his back.

It wasn't exactly a nice thing to do to the guy, but far from dirty.

They were crosschecks to the chest, and with his gloves together so he was basically just shoving Briere down. Is that so uncommon? No, not really. Should it be allowed? I don't think so. Will it happen anyway? Probably, and I don't think plays like that are the biggest problem the league has right now. And of course McCabe is no angel, his PIM total over his career attest to that.

Who was the Leaf that gave Drury the concussion?it looked almost EXACTLY like what Bertuzzi did to Moore minus the sucker punch. I would hope the NHL doesn't show hypocrissy by not doing anything.

It was identical to the whole thing we were talking about in the McCabe/Koivu thread that Bouillon did to Antropov. Briere was at the edge of the crease after a mad scramble, and "expectedly" got hit (to use the words from that thread).

Briere got up right away, and the second shot by McCabe was about as hard as anything my grandmother could develop, and Briere flopped in an attempt to get a call. The original hit should have been a penalty, but the Leafs were already on the PK due to a BS call, so the ref had a guilty conscious.

My opinion, yes. He plays a fairly dirty game. However, he's no Marchment.

I mean Briere is 5'10.McCabe punched him far from the play.It wasn't no flop when Briere couldn't brace himself from a punch by a punk.Why didn't McCabe do that to Mair or Peters?Why pick on the smallest guy?Shows how tough he is.

Far from the play? Briere was standing on the edge of the crease. If Mair or Peters had been standing there I'm sure he would've given them a shove instead.

Why did Brown push down 'old man' Roberts after the whistle? (and not get called for it may I add)

But Roberts can defend himself quite well while Briere is not so good at that.

Roberts took him facefirst into the glass, resulting in the dislodged glass pane and the stoppage in play. Brown, being an aggressive player, went right after Roberts.

McCabe on the other hand, did knock Briere down. His hands were high, in the chin-neck-upperchest area. Whether or not it was a hard shot, none here can actually comment since we neither delivered or received the push/hit/punch/crosscheck.

It was Nieuwendyk, and a suspension better be coming... Surprisingly dirty play from a far from dirty player. A play like that can't be tolerated, especially after the Bertuzzi incident.

Briere was flopping like the rest of the Sabres tonight. Talk about dirty tactics.

In any case, stick-work is dirty, as is kneeing/elbowing, as is attacking a guy from behind. Pushing/punching a guy in the chest is clean.

Players don't get suspended for shoving other players in a scrum, regardless of who he lands on. Dream on.

Yes Mcabe is dirty
Yes Havlat is dirty
Yes half of the NHL is dirty

Can we have a discussion without the Leafs or the Leaf players being brought up.

Thanks in advance

Yeah really, two Marchment threads and two McCabe threads on the same page.

McCabe is my most hated player in the NHL. He is dirty as can be but won hold himself accountable and fight unless a guy like Chara grabs a hold of him. A player who plays with an edge with his size ....and doesn't fight....what a puke.
