    It's a sickness that they don't know is there. Lets leave them be in their own gene pool.

    If being able to look at things objectively is a sickness then I will take it. What Sill did pretty much happens on a nightly basis around the league. Not that it's right, but it's not out of the norm. Both players dropped their gloves. I don't believe there was even an instigator penalty. Comparing this to the cheapshot by Thornton is silly.

    Now that's really grand. Whose truth, NAS - yours?

                                 -----------



    With regards to Shawn Thornton ? Through the eyes of haters he can do no right. 

    Thornton was wrong. One of the few times he was deserving of criticism for the way a 12th forward plays.

    Problem is..................most of the time the "so called truth" about the player is through hate-filled glasses for some .

    With that I believe truthful, credible opinions go out the door when it comes to anything regarding this player.

    Childish ? Indeed !

    Please show me the post where I suggested that Shawn Thornton's actions against Brooks Orpik are to be ignored or even applaudable.

    What irks me as well as a few other users on this board is Pittsburgh's course of action and the way the Penguins try to get away with anything, and the completely undeserved wave of sympathy and kowtows the Penguins organization gets - not just on this board, but from the league and in some hockey media as well. To me this is clearly a double standard.

    In response to mattbs' comment:

    Tonight, he Blue jacket player Tropp lays a perfectly legal hit on a Pens player and what happens, the Pens player Sill lays a beating on Tropp.  Exactly the same as Thornton tried to do to Orpik.  This 2 hours after after Pens coach says he doesn't believe players have to fight to defend themselves after a legal hit.  What a bunch of hypocrites.



    They were all angry because the B's beat them up the other night.

    If you were objective, you wouldn't merely toss out the "cheapshot by Thornton" comment.  Factually, it was in response to a cheapshot, which does significantly change the context.

    These boards blew up when the B's didn't respond to Savards injury, and went even more ballistic when Thornton "only' engaged in 1 little fisticuff with Cooke the next time they played.

    I can't think of one poster here, who doesn't think Thornton deserves a suspension.  Some think an important message was sent though, and feel bad a generally honest player will have to take some pretty tough medicine.

    I'm in that group.  I wish it didn't happen, I'm sorry he'll be suspended, but I'm not going to throw him under a bus for doing something he got crucified for not doing previously.

    I totally agree with you.........Thornton did what he gets paid over 1M from the Bruins to do......Orpik got taken out on a stretcher and it's really unfortunate but this outcome wasn't Thornton's intention..........Thornton admitted he went overboard and whatever penalty he gets he will pay his dues like a man......lets move on......

    I think he is referring to those who come in here clearly not showing an understanding of the hockey code like Canadiens organization, the Canucks, the Penguins, etc.

    It's just ironic some Bruins fans, fans that watch a team play within the code so well through the years, cannot see or know what the hockey code even is.

    What Thornton did is no different what McSorley did to Brashear in 2000 when Brashear ran Dafoe with Dafoe blowing out an ACL.

    You don't run players who don't have the puck and cheap shot them, only to not stand up and honor the code.

    Orpik flopped to the ice like a wuss after being 3rd man in on Campbell, which made Thornton go beserk.

    Now, we're fielding a JV Squad because teams in the East are cheapshotting our players left and right as a strategy to harm our players because they know they can't beat our team fairly.

    Are they comparing this to Thornton,s cheapshot or Orpik not answering the bell? Players know when the bell has to be answered as Tropp did, as Cooke did and as Orpik didn,t. I think the base behind this discussion is the pens saying you dont have to answer the bell for a questionable ( I refuse to say clean ) hit & how Sill went after Tropp. Orpik should have answered the bell when Thornton came knocking the 1st time!

    Re: Pens are hypocrites form top to bottom

    Or was Thornton wrong for challenging him the 1st time? I said it before on here, look at Orpik on youtube & the hits he dishes out, the timing of them, the questionable nature of them. Most hits are vicious with intent to hurt, the player playing the puck some just in the vincinity, Orpik just beelining the player with no regard to the puck, & off he skates to the bench. At 220, check out his fights? He isnt entering one unless he,s a overwelming favorite. Is Orpik sorry Ericsson has suffered his 2nd concussion in 6 weeks?

    Correction: Please exclude current Penguins player development coach Bill Guerin from the "hypocrite" assessment - not because he's a former Bruin, but because, to my recollection, he was the only Penguin who called out Coward Cooke and Colin Campbell because of Cooke's cheapshot against Marc Savard and Campbell's obvious incompetence.

    When Johnny Boychuk throw his big hits, do you think he's trying to play the puck?  If he does and another team's goon is upset, should Boychuk fight him? 

    If Boychuk cranked Moulson, do you want him to fight John Scott?

    Or if he blew up Kadri, do you think he should drop them with McLaren or Orr?

    I think Boychuk would answer the bell honestly.Would I want or Boychuk want? no.....did Cooke want to? no..... He did & it was water under the bridge afterwards
