[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Who is right? Me or NAS? : I agree Legion, and if there is one hockey conspiracy that I think actually has legs, it is the consistent home cooking the Habs get in the Bell Centre. BUT, Horton needs to check his ego. Getting cross-checked without a call is part of the game. It happens to everyone. In a big game you've got to shake it off instead of settling the score. His retaliation cross check on Gill was so obvious and so blatant that there was no chance at all of the ref missing it. Horton is not above getting an occasional cheap shot his way, and if he's really focused on winning, he shakes it off and keeps his eye on the prize. Like I said, I can't believe that Subban is still able fool NHL refs into calling the retaliatory penalty over and over after his antics. But that's life in the Bell Centre, and the Bruins need to check their ego and roll with the punches a little better. The stick in the groin is so much more subtle than a right hand to the face -- it just gives the refs an opportunity to appease the home crowd and punish those big, bad, bullies that stole the Cup last year. In close games, I'd like to see the Bruins start to turn the other cheek. In lopsided games I like to see someone destroy PK Subban. Unfortunately, most games with Montreal are close.

On the same page here. You're right, I do get the impression that they have this self entitlement going on. I said this to myself on more than one occasion watching the games. It's like " Do you know who I am ? " ...
Horton was wrong, he should take a few extra steps and sink the shoulder into Gill not a lazy azz cross check.
Subban, the same thing, last year the last 2 games in Boston they went after him physically . Just hit him every chance you get. He's the one that'll be in the box. Besides as talented as he is, he gets intimidate pretty much.
The refs know that Subban is making them look bad , even Cassie figured it out.
Look at what happened to Burrows last season in the playoffs.
Someone should remind Subban the story of the boy that called wolf. Karma!
