Sorry, but no one of us silly Europeans have this mind set. If you can embarrass your opponent you do so, at any level. Which means at the same time if a Czech player did it, we would never take offense.
Exactly. Theres no mercy in this sport - if you have the opportunity to legally check a player out of the game, you'll do it, every time. Hence, caring about someones "feelings" is bullsh!t. You should embarrass people everytime you have the opportunity to do so.
He said today that he felt pretty good and that he would try skating tomorrow.
The Canadian media is saying that his agent has advised him against playing and risking further injury. Tough decision for the kid, but I'd think it'd be wise to skip a game that is non-elimination. Maybe wishing thinking
What really impresses me with this team is that they really seem to believe in the system they are playing. With Mårts they tried playing it but did a half assed job and reverted to a typical Swedish game as soon as a play went wrong and they got insecure.
Lehner seems like a real sourpuss, I have never seen him smile. Even when they interviewed him after the Russia game he looked like he had just let in 10 goals.
Wildly competitive dude. He's been commended in junior and the pros for already behaving like a pro. Sault Ste Marie coach last year said as soon as he came in he taught the whole team about professional work ethic. This guy is just very very determined, considering he's my teams prospect...I love it.
