Plus Ryan Miller gets hammered in line brawl.
seem to be having embed issues: http://youtu.be/OMZONkncT7g
Too good for him. Also, Kessel needs a long suspension, but won't get one.
They were referring to the fight afterwards, not with Scott.
The slash to the leg was fine, he kinda screwed up with the stick work the second time.
Nice to see some Old Time Hockey already.
Clarkson is the one that really screwed up, he'll get 10 for leaving the bench.
Dude you have no choice Jon Scott was about to power slam kessel's head into the ice. In my mind Kessel is fine up until he spears Scott as he is engaged with another player it's a weak move.
There's nothing fine about slashing another player (Scott) while he's being engaged by another player. Kessel was slashing him, while skating away. What a gutless pussy.
So pussy is now an acceptable derogatory term around here? Why don't you just call him a fag while you're at it and cover all the 5th grade insults?
Fine. He's a bitch.
Why would I disparage gay men like that?
By the way, you must've had a pretty tough 5th grade. That language was definitely not used until middle school in my 'hood.
I didn't embed since NSFW, but ths is a great reminder that words have more than one meaning: http://youtu.be/Fcja4WFFzDw
you would be just as indignant about calling someone a dick. Otherwise it just seems like feminist whining.
Ok so it's fine for Scott to grab Kessel and best him senselessly. Kessel doesn't fight and Scott owns anyone he fights. I said the initial slashing that clearly doesn't hurt is acceptable. The spearing at the end is not. I guess you don't play hockey.
I get the difference between Scott's and Kessel's fighting abilities. Kessel acted like a tough guy, when he's not. That's the base of the problem I have with it.
I do not agree that the initial slashing was acceptable. The NHL may not suspend him for that specifically, but it's a gutless act.
Kessel knew the deal. If he thought Scott was going to beat him senselessly, but did not want to fight, he could have skated away. He did not have to wait until someone else engaged Scott, then slashed the back of Scott's legs as he skated away.
I think this argument is totally ignorant: "I guess you don't play hockey.". What the fuck does that mean? Yes, I've played hockey. No, I no longer play. It is never okay to slash a player that's wrestling/fighting with someone else.
If Kessel wanted to fight Scott, he should've taken his lumps. If he didn't want to fight, he should've kept his stick on the ice. One action is respectable, the other is gutless.
HE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ON THE ICE!!!! Why was he out there. If I'm Carlyle I'm not putting my "star" player out there to lineup across from Scott. I'm putting one of my fighters out there instead.
Agreed on Kessel - he uses his stick as a weapon on two separate occasions, and that's just about the biggest no-no there is in terms of hockey fighting. Inexcusable, clearly deliberate, given that he does it a second time. Hope he sits for a good while.
I still don't like Scott going after Kessel like he does. Clearly a guy like Kessel is not going to want to fight him. Still, a guy really cannot use the stick as a weapon, like you said. It will be awesome to see these guys play the next time, and I assume someone on the Leafs (Orr) will destroy John Scott.
When I was in high school I played junior hockey and saw a guy take off his skate and try to stab somebody.
It's kessel's only defense he did not want to engage in a street fight that he would have gotten pummeled by Jon Scott. He swung at his feet not his head it was meant as a warning shot.
Now the second time
Him spearing is different.
While a Sparty, Ryan Miller seems like a good dude.
Fuck Corey Tropp though. Hope he and Conboy find no success in their lives whatsoever (much tamed down version of wha I originally typed out).
GO LEAFS GO!!
Remember the NHL? Neither does the universe.
It takes a special kind of dickhead to go into a thread for the sole purpose of trashing the topic, and by extension, the people who like it. Dickhead.
Glad you found the time in your busy day to enter this off-topic thread that nobody cares about. The title clearly says what it is about, so why waste your time reading the thread if hockey and Sparty beat downs aren't your thing. However, I can assure you probably half the MGo readers like hockey, and probably over half enjoy a good beat down.
That's just, like, your opinion man. Just read the subject and you'll be ok.
BRING BACK THE NEG BOMB.
Even if no body cares about hockey this involves a player with a history against Michigan.
In effect. Sigh.
I understand your reaction which was why I was hesitant to start this thread... and if this was any other former Sparty, I would not have started it. However, this is Corey Tropp, the guy responsible for one of the cheapest shots I've ever witnessed in hockey. Kampfer had only recently returned from a fractured skull, and this guy (after a clean hit) took a tomohawk chop at his head sending him back to the hospital. Call me RCMB if you want, but I do take a small bit of joy out of seeing Tropp pummeled.
now that is too funny
