Antropov in need of reality check

http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/sports/8555749.htm

Quote:
Antropov noted that the Flyers' defense might not be up to the physical challenge simply because all six players are from Europe.

"I think they've got European defensemen and all we have to do is play tougher and keep being physical and they can't handle it," Antropov said.
Hey Nik, you're European.

Alright, if you want to be really technical, he's "Asian" but he's Russian by birth and right or wrong the perception is Russian = European, and since he's talking about perceptions of Euros being soft, then making the perception that he's European is not out of line.

Well, if Antropov would at least try to play a North American style instead of floating around he might have some credence.

Ragnersson = Tough
Markov = Tough SOB
Pitkanen = Mean (Doesnt show it much)
Malakhov = Huge
Johnsson = His games played speaks to his toughness
Timander = Solid

Not sure who he's refering to. This Euro = Soft analogy is getting old.

Pitkanen = Mean (if you're a teletubby )

I guess you missed my comment in small font. I'll reprint it in larger font for your reading ease.

Antropov is nothing more then a big goof with no skill. He should realize that he is only in the NHL because of his size. Soon he will come to the realization that he is nothing more then a could have been.

This wasn't the brightest comment by Nik.

Markov will crush him good for that, I'm sure.

Well said. I wish Quinn would say it to him. All I hear is "Antropov's got all this hidden potential"..........well Nik, it can come out now! We are all waiting!!! I hope that "soft Euro" Markov decapitates Antropov so we can get Stajan in there.

I wish Antroproblem would shut up and stop taking dumb penalties and start looking less like he belongs in the roller derby arena.

Yes...and ironically, the sticking point was that Clarke demanded Kaberle and the Leafs were offering Danny Markov - who is now a Flyer and someone I would trade TK for in a second.

By who? He's become the Leaf fans' whipping boy now that Kidd's safely on the bench. He takes endless stupid needless penalties and contributes little on offence.

What's even funnier is that any of those guys could now pick up Lindros all on their own...assuming the Leafs or Flyers were actually that stupid.
