It looks like this opinion was only shared by Kreijci and the opinionist.

Although suddenly, I do realize why some of their fans can become delusional.

This is outrageous.

Honestly, if the Habs had a losing record this would be more of an issue around here. They don't, so it's not and rightfully so. I actually enjoy that the lack of fighting gets under the skin of all the haters. Quite amusing really.

Perfect text book mega clean hit. The NHL will/should use it to explain what a clean hit is.

Not even debatable. The slow motion clearly showes that his feet only leave the ice after the impact. Anyways, PK was nice, he could have went with the elbow and probably would have ended Marchand's career (another mega concussion for a Bruins players...).

you will often see the players explode into the other player for big open ice hits. Remember that boychuk left his feet too a certain point when he hit pouliot, but subban's check was nowhere near the head whereas boychuk got close.

What you dont want to see is the player make a clear jump long before the hit itself, so I render it clean.

If Montreal had more players like Travis Moen they would win less, though if you replaced Lapierre or Pyatt with the Moen clone that would not be the case.

I'm an Oiler's fan so quite honestly i couldn't care less how often Montreal players drop their gloves, and i'm definitely not a "hater". I'm just giving an opinion on why so many teams in the league are really starting to dislike the Habs this year.

Also i'm curious as to why everyone who voices an opinion about the Habs that most Montreal fans don't agree with is considered a "hater". Like i said before, i'm an Oilers fan and have no ill feelings toward the Habs but when i disagreed with Babcock's statement that Price is the best goalie in the league this year and that Thomas was better and had the stats to back it up, i was called a hater. Now i'm called a hater again for giving an opinion. But i'm happy that you're amused bud, makes the world a better place when everyone is happy.

I wonder when the unwritten rule of, "When you cleanly hit a player, you must drop your gloves and fight because you made a good hockey play", came into effect. Can someone get that for me?

It's guys like Lapierre and Subban who don't back up their talk that give em a bad rep. But if they were to fight every time they smack talked they'd spend the game in the box lol

Fighting a scrub like Carcillo is stupid. Philly loses a fourth-liner for five minutes, while the Habs lose one of their best players for five minutes.

Fighting Thornton is stupid, for obviously the same reason.

Furthermore, fighting after making a smart hockey play is beyond stupid. It's like... ultra mega stupid.

Everywhere stupid.

I'm not talking about a full team of Moen's but 1 or 2 more guys that don't mind mixing it up a little. And by mixing it up i'm not only talking about fighting but just playing a gritty style of game and not afraid to back it up or stand up to the opposition. Moen is the type of player that every team needs to get deep in the playoffs. Just ask the Anaheim Ducks from a few years back.

This is leaving your feet. Lucic's skates are off the ground before touching Van Ryn seems like they had no problem with this hit but Subban must fight the galaxy because of his.

Why ''backing it up'' ? Why do you need to back up good and legal hockey plays with a fight? Why do you need to fight anyway? I'm not arguing to ban hockey fights here but the importance attached to it is annoying. Hockey: the point is to put pucks in nets. If you're a role player who's there to stand up for your teammates and drop the gloves, do it, but why should skilled players get goaded into that? Ooh, boohoo, Subban is a rookie offensive defenseman who does, like, spinoramas and **** and talks to the opposition. Cry moar: he doesn't have anything in particular to back up, and there's no reason dropping the gloves would be a way to back up anything that he does : legal hits and trash talking are parts of the game, and people are delusional if they think it's a particular issue with Subban and no one else. But yeah, he has the audacity not only to be a Montreal Canadiens, but to be a black player in the whitest of sports. (oh yes, I'm bringing that up.)

As for the complaints about Subban and how we're supposedly a ''dirty team'' : lmao. I'll take that criticism seriously when we start getting called out by people who aren't whiny *****es in the first place.

It's always funny to me that when we lose, we aren't tough enough and don't stick up for each other. When we win, we're a dirty team.
Yes, it seems that the Habs are caught in this tornado of hypocrisy.

They're either soft or dirty.

Oh well, let the haters hate.

Seeing how i'm the only one who talked about players "backing it up" i'm guessing you are referring to my post. Not once in my post did i mention that anyone needs to back up clean hits or legal plays. If someone lays a clean hit and is challenged i see nothing wrong with refusing to fight, but when you go out and run your mouth and trash talk after almost every whistle in a physical sport like hockey where fighting is accepted than i think you should be prepared to pick up for yourself when someone decides to take exception to your comments.

Also i'm pretty sure none of my posts in this thread even mentioned PK Subban. But seeing how you brought it up i will set the record straight that i have no problem with his spinoramas or flashy style of play. I do however disagree that he has nothing to "back up". I guess it's a matter of opinion but the way i see it if you're going to get in player's faces and talk smack then hide behind the refs or just skate away then yes, you are a coward.

Mr

What? Everybody hates us this year!! That only means one thing, we must be winning!

Freakin' losers that are NHL-clueless should give up the charade and go back to watching other sports. Larry Robinson leveled Terry O'Reilly with a very similar hit.....O'Reilly responded to the press after the game, saying (with a smile and respect), that getting hit by bird was like running into a giant redwood tree.

Those were the days....when the Bruins players actually had balls and weren't a bunch of closet skirt wearing chicks.

For those who may have missed the Flyers/Rangers game; Carcillo mouthed off to Avery as he was getting on the ice, wanting to go with Avery. So Avery drops the gloves and jumps on him, ready to pound and... Carcillo does nothing and looks around for a call, with his arms out not knowing what's going on.

Later on in the game, he jumps Reese, a rookie on the Rangers, only to get handled by Reese.

That's funny because they used to call the Habs a bunch of diving, *****s. Looks like the page has turned and the Bruins are much worse than before. I love how they ***** because they can't beat us...AWESOME!
