Don’t you just love how it’s the lack of accountability not the action itself,that pissed off Pens management more?
It makes me feel better to make ignorant morons disappear just by clicking the little “x”. It was so much easier than arguing with the jackass trolls on the Bruins tag. I encourage everyone to utilize this lovely convenience.
The NFL took a stand against dirty, nasty targeted hits a couple of years ago. They suspended Saints’ Head Coach Shawn Payton a full year because they believed that several members of the Saints defense had been given instruction by the coaching staff to injure/remove-from-play opposing players who were threats.
It would be nice if the NHL would recognize patterns and employ a similar response in regards to a certain organization from Pittsburgh. It is rather curious that two players had their heads targeted in the first 15 minutes of the game. Two top-6 guys. That seems to imply complicity by the coaching staff, if not a suggestion, or even an order. The NHL needs to get their heads out of their asses now and make a stand.
I am so sorry, but if Neal finishes this game without blood or lost teeth, I will be incredibly pissed off.
And the call on Thornton is a complete overreaction on the part of the referees. It was a reaction to the injury, not the hit. Fuck that noise.
