I know the game plenty. Anyone boarded like that should be beaten down. You're a wussy girl, so of course you disagree.
Instead, Thornton does a goofy square dance with Prust. Whopdee doo.
Of course it's a penalty, dumbo. What a moron.
Oh no no no.
Let's remember that you've stated that Julien's team has been slow to react. Remember when Chara took down Emelin? Immediate. McQuaid on Scott? Immediate. Ference on many guys? Immediate.
Are you still stuck on the Savard episode? Everyone agrees that Cooke should have been destroyed that night. Let's remember that the night in question was years ago. Do you have any other examples of Julien's team being slow to react?
Of course you don't. You haven't lived in New England for a very long time and you don't have Center Ice. Your opinion is based on the few national games you happen to watch.
But, again, let's discuss this. I'm game. I've given examples off the top of my head of times when the B's reacted instantly. Let's see some of your examples of them being slow to react.
It wasn't a national game last night at all.
I do have Center Ice and have had MLB Extra Innings for years. The only package I dropped was NFL Ticket because of where I live and the condo building not allowing dishes, but I see all the Pats games in this market with ease anyway.
This particular hit was worthy enough for someone, Thornton, Lucic, whoever, to go and challenge that puuke Pacioretty.
Period. There is nothing to discuss. You seem to think the hit was not dangerous or reckless and I, along with some others, do.
You also don't think it's worthy of it being addressed just because it wasn't some elbow or hit to the head and in the ultra dirty category.
Montreal is INFAMOUS for being sneaky dirty. It's been like this for decades. They basically train their players to do it.
I played hockey long enough to not ride someone into the boards like Jones did on Bergeron back in 2007 or board someone who is exposed. It's the basic code of the game.
If you knew the game, you would know this, tard.
Usually, they do react when it's a blatant dirty hit, but they seem to be too conservative on hits like this.
Why is this such a big deal for you anyway? It's clear you're doing this because you're a known tool and take the 180 degree opposite stance on everything from me. It's why you're known as a troll on the Pats board. And, you're not fooling anyone here, Handy.
You love Jacobs and are a homer deluxe, which is the most annoying kind of fan.
Wouldn't waste your time with him he knows all and sees all.he might be god,just bow down.Lol
