    Re: Other teams show no more respect for the Bruins : Enough is enough

    Stanley I thought it was a mutual collision and not dirty. I think Krejci should've shyed off on that hit. Gretzky wouldnt of even tried to go toe-toe with oshie like that.

    I dont remember if anyone came fighting after that hit or not but they should've. Oshie was plastering bruins all game see Chara and Stuart. Someone should've gone after him I agree, but I dont think the magical presence of McGratts you speak of would've prevented that. McGratts isnt even a great fighter he's lost at least as many as he's won over the years.

    But overall I do agree with your point teams take shots at the Bruins its been going on for 2years now. Id like to see that stop.

    Oshie's hit was clean, without a doubt it was a huge hit, but it was a clean hit.  If Krejci were even an inch or two taller that shoulder never would have hit his jaw causing his head to hit the boards. It happens. It was clean. Nothing came of it and nothing should have come from it.

    This team is tough.

    Horton, Lucic, Stuart, Thornton, Campbel, Boychuck. Honestly the hit krejci/oshie hit was clean infact Krejci went in looking for contact. Krejci should play a gretzky game IDC if gets 3 hits all year as long as he stays healthy his offensive prowess is the glue to this offensive scheme.

    And when Krejci does get hit like that whoever is on the ice should immediately respond plenty of guys capable of throwing down with anyone in the league on the ice for the bruins. Its not a matter of personell its a Team Attitude and Coaching adjustment they need to be more like pitbulls out there and less "calm julien" style. If team toughness improved maybe it would deter this stuff maybe not.

    [QUOTE]Overall I think I agree with Stanley on this, it was not dirty hit by any mean just a solid collision on both players IMHO. How ever! base on the league's trend, if your team mate got hit let alone one of your best player, clean hit or not...the gloves will drop. Pretty much the Bruins seem to be one of very few team will not response such way  (don't you think Sabotka knew about this before he slamed Thornton into the board?) YES I think it's coaching...I'm not saying its wrong way, but I'm sure other teams acknowledged this about the Bruins,..enuff is enuff....
    Posted by FUhabs[/QUOTE]

    Yes, and this is probably the most ridiculous trend in the NHL today. It's driving me insane. Hitting is part of the game. There is NO REASON why someone (like Mark Stuart) should have to drop the gloves and defend himself after throwing a solid, legal body check. Cripes, if you want to just eliminate checking, go ahead and do it, and give somebody two minutes any time he makes physical contact. 

    If someone is hit illegally, a head shot, or stick high, or going for the knee, or whatever, yes, then come to your teammate's defense. But fighting someone for playing the game the way it's supposed to be played is moronic and is a trend that needs to stop.

    And no, the Bruins do it just as much as any other team. Or did you miss Andrew Ference's instigator Saturday night?

    Fletcher ....exact I am suggesting that someone steps up and other teams start thinking before they hit our talented players ...this happens to many times when the other team's tough players hit our small and talented players ...come on open your eyes ...we lost to the Flyers  in the playoffs because they hurt Krejci ...if they have no consequences they will keep on doing it ....go ahead guys against the Bruins its an open 'buffet'  ....all you can HIT .....I had enough

    This hit reminded me of Bergeron running into Seidenberg. Krejci did initiate the contact, hit a rock (Oshie), and got what was coming to him. I agree with being "tough to play against" and "eye for an eye" and "vigilante justice" and "protecting your teammates" and all of that, but none of it really applies here. Be thankful Krejci wasn't really hurt and will be back soon.

    Is this a league wide thing, or are just the Bruins being bullied? 
    It's not like the B's don't have any toughness. Lucic, Thorton, Chara, McGrattan. Horton is big, as are Wheeler, Boychuck, McQuaid. Caron is not small. This is not a small team. Maybe, coach is telling to turn the other cheek. 
    Something has to be done though. This can't go on.

    Re: Other teams show no more respect for the Bruins : Enough is enough

    TJ Oshie is a solid brick house! He has a job to do & he does it very well & could end up getting even better. The guy knocked the biggest guy in the league on his but earlier in the game. He has the hitting game down & there's nothing wrong with the way he plays. IMO, McGrats just would've been another one that Osh would've knocked around. That kid isn't intimidated by ANYONE!
    The poster that mentioned the equipment is part of the problem, but not all of it. These players are faster, stronger & better conditioned than any other athlete in the world of sports. I'm for the "old school" way too. Hit our star & we'll hit yours. I also on the other hand love the hit that Ryder laid on Sobatka when he was running around! Did a Blue come after Ryder after he did that? That's how you settle it & we didn't see much of Vladdy after that. Hunwick laid the body & knocked somebody down along the boards! Going after someone after everytime there's a big collison is ridiculous! It's not just the B's that impact players get smacked around & injured. The Cook on Savard hit & Richards on Krejci are not the same thing. Different games, different teams & different scerario's. The B's have the best pk in the league, but it won't be if we need to go after someone everytime a player gets hit! The Dallas game a couple of yrs ago, that got handled perfectly. The Blue's weren't pulling the same shananagins that Dallas was. They were forechecking hard, in constant puck pursuit & hitting any Bruin that got in their way! The B's when they play their game? They are the exact same way. That's hockey....No..That's smart hockey!
    Btw- The Jones hit? Bergy helped with that by turning his body. Not saying Jones was right in the hit. He did have time to lay off on the impact, but in this game you can't & don't allow yourself to be in vulnerable positions either. Bergy turned his body to protect the puck. Which happens a lot. Players are told to responsible for each other, but they have to be responsible for themselves too.

    The Hunwick hit nightmare refers to?  Yeah, on Oshie.  So Oshie knocks down Chara and is knocked down by Hunwick, which means it looks good for the smurfs in Mtl to knock down Hunwick, and then for Verne Troyer to knock down Gomez....

    I read exactly what you wrote and it seems you're  confused about my reply.First off,Krejci isn't Crosby and,as we saw the other night,Crosby and other rugged players don't always like having others fight their battles(he can handle himself).Everyone has had a teammate(or friend in general)who starts crap and expects someone else to clean it up.these are men playing a tough sport.I know from experience that most players prefer to get revenge on their own rather than having a big brother type stick up for them after every incident.after awhile you man up and deal with it yourself.am I the only one who remembers DK leaving his feet on a hit in the corner in the 3rd period?Should he have been attacked for it?Come on guys.This attitude is more embarrassing than taking a number and getting them next shift.And all you guys that tyhink the game and Bruins were so much tougher before should remember Bobby Orr had more PIMS than points in his career and Neely went after Ulf on his own.Neither guy wanted someone else to fight their battle because they're men not china dolls.

    Mark Stuart, Johnny Boychuk, Milan Lucic, Zdeno Chara? Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron? Actually most of the Bruins are quite capable of "finishing their checks on a consistent basis."

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEgpMM5ApLI

    I don't understand your point. If you want somebody who "opens the ice" for his teammates, I'd say Lucic is probably the best in the business (and Horton's not bad either). If you want an enforcer who takes on other players' bad guys (the Kaletas of the world), you've got Shawn Thornton. If you want a pest, you've got Marchand.

    If you want a goon (Orr or Boogard) or a punk (Avery, Ott, Kaleta), I'd agree with the Bruins organization and say they're not worth the roster spot.

    Currently the league leaders number 50 -61 hits thus far.

    The Bruins are led by S.Thornton with 27
                            and Milan Lucic with 26

    most of the individual bruins numbers are way down the list, and for the most part are Dmen or 4th liners. There has been a troubling lack of overall commitment to aggressive forechecking and hitting in the offensive zone, and the numbers back it up early on this year.

    Oshie's hit on Krejci was clean.

    What a bunch of whiners here


    I never have agreed with anything you have said--- UNTIL NOW!

    Hockey is a Contact sport-- so is Football.  We are currently seing the "pussification" of the NFL brought on by ESPN blowing everything out of proportion to make a story.

    I 'm sorry if other Bruins fans can't see it--- Oshie was just playing hockey the way it should be played.   As a Lifelong Bruins fan, I don't want to see Krecji get hurt, but for once, don't be blinded by the facts.

    Oshie--- Clean Hit

    Cooke--- Dirty Hit

    There is a BIG difference.

    Why is it that ??  All our talented players get hit so hard from the opponents (Krejci twice, Bergeron, Savard) who's next Seguin, Marchand, (they only go after our small players) .....????  Is it because the visitors have no fear at the Garden ???

What happened to the Big Bad Bruins ?????   Chara needs to hit harder , Lucci needs to hit like he was doing in his 1st season, Thornton needs to become a scary player to play against ...and maybe the other teams will think twice before hitting our talented players .....and I am not debatting the nature of the Oshie's hit on Krejci but I can tell you 100% that he would have never hit Lucic that way even if Looch would have been in the same situation ......Enough said about that all I am to see is that the visitors start to think twice before hurting one of our talented player .....that's it that's all
