Reef, you may not be able to define cliche, but you can certainly give a nice example of it. ;) The whole thing about this is he didn't need to stand up for himself. He knew he could handle a few shots from the wee moron. He was trying to do what he had to to win. YOU needed him to stand up for himself. YOU were embarrassed. Did someone harass you for being a Canucks fan at the water-cooler the next day? If some generally-accepted tough guy took a bunch of shots, you'd all be leaping around saying how incredibly tough that is. Instead, for Danny, it's just more self-propagating opinion. Most media editorial material is built on the premise of somewhat arbitrarily taking a position then using all means necessary to support said position, whether it's correct or not and whether it's current or not. You could argue that the Sedins were labelled soft in their first six months in the league and no one has bothered to revise that initial gut-reaction label in the subsequent decade.

Incidentally, I would have 'gone apeshit' in that situation, but I don't have anywhere near the self-control and self-confidence that Dank has.

Meds, you may be right regarding the eroding inspiration, but you can also be a kid on the bench thinking while you're having trouble against an aggressive team that if the twins can continue to battle while being pounded you can. I suspect it's a mixture of opinion on a player by player basis. Continuing with the image/stereotype idea, recall in the 2013 playoffs that Daniel threw an open-ice hit on Wingels and got a penalty for it. In OT.

Might have something to do with the constant derailment of threads during what is the busiest weeks of the off season. Save the regurgitated crap for August and contribute to the thread ffs.

Back to the draft at hand - Patrick had surgery prior to draft, out 4-6 weeks currently.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

110%

Benning didn't get a chance to strut his Genius'ness until the 2nd round. Gillman and the Gillis posse wanted nothing to do with the 2nd round and beyond

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. That clip made it seem to me that those were Benning's choices.
