OT: Wings v. Nashville Game One Open Thread

Submitted by justingoblue on April 11th, 2012 at 8:10 PM

Hopefully the start of another great run for the Red Wings. Feeling like I'm supporting them by eating Little Ceasars and drinking Oberon.

Watching that video:

"Well Zetterberg boarded Weber, so Weber retaliated", "He tapped his head against the glass. Big deal", "Getting boarded into the glass head first would hurt. Having someone push your head into the glass WHILE you have a helmet on....wont hurt.", "Softies, play hockey, its violent...violent teams win not finness teams...ask vancouver last year", and my personal favorite "I am actually from st louis, and i enjoy getting acting lessons from your detroit red wings every time i watch them play"

Words can't begin how much I want someone to drop the gloves on Weber right as the puck drops (if he's not suspended) and how much I want to win this series

Fuck everything.

Hopefully Helm doesn't have a severed tendon.

Shea Weber, fuck you, eat shit and die. I used to think you were a good player. Now you're just Claude 2.0. I nominate Big Bert to go McCarty on his ass, whether or not Shanny suspends him. That demands on-ice retribution.

I don't really know how to embed tweets, but take this for what it's worth. From Liam McHugh, an NBC Sports analyst/host:

General feeling in the @NHLonNBCSports studio: Shea Weber has earned himself a 1 game unpaid vacation. More on @NBCSN intermission



Also, Jeremy Roenick think's he'll be suspended, and Yahoo's Puck Daddy thinks so too

That has got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever seen a player do. No point to it, especially after the win. Honeslty, it just be AT LEAST a 3-5 game suspension. Should be zero tolerance on stuff like this.
