Instead, I would say, "Sadly, Stoll's nutsack agreed.

Weren't we saying a year ago that we need more assholes?

Just get rid of the pussyass diving and I'll be happy.

I miss Torres missile bodychecks, and we could use more offense from our dmen, but first they have to help out our goalie's as well, is that too much to ask?

Personally I loved Kess' bumping of Quick for a goal.

I also admired his nut-sack stick-work on Stoll.

But yeah he needs to take some of the diving out of his game.

I don't mind being hated out of being the best, but I don't understand why the Canucks WERE diving, whining, and being cheap shot artists last night. Completely disgraceful, and it's not something I saw at all during the regular season.

I'll always cheer the Canucks no matter what, but that cheap shit has got to go.

Kesler spearing Stoll was absolutely disgusting.

Tell you what how many times is that same action resulting in nothing being called, so why this ref and why not the others. I'm picking on one thing but really every game is an adventure. I certainly have no iodea what's going to be called and what's not going to be called. AND THEN the third period you could have got away with 3rd degree man slaughter. It just doesn't make sense any more. Weber gets a $2500 fine for punching a guys head into the boards. Rome gets 4 games after a guy admires his pass. Clifford nothing for driving Tanevs haed into the board, Keith gets a minor for elbowing Sedin in the head....on and on and on. It gets tougher and tougher to justify following hockey and paying out great wads of moeny


Colon Campbell played the game, Fred. How could you even question him when you never played the game. Mike Murphy played the game and gets gut feelings about stuff that you'll never understand. Brendan Shanahan once had balls, Campbell and Murphy now have them in their freezer and will eat them when the season is over.[/quote]

If you mean I never played the game as a pro you're right but I played much like every one else on the board...rec hockey. Not for a long time I'll grant you that....maybe 30 years ago :lol:
cheers

Big difference between playing "tough" and playing cheap. Even smaller players can play tough by getting in the way. They may get run over but they ensure the opposition does not get a free inch of ice.

The Kesler "head snap" last night may have been a reaction to the end of Quick's stick, I couldn't tell. It is something he has not done as much this year as in the past. The "nut cracker" has been around forever, if anyone has played the game. Not nice to be on the receiving end for sure, but it happens all the time. It is a cheap shot no doubt. The snow shower is a BS move that they all of a sudden seem to be calling as well they should. In the past I have seen Luongo get showered numerous times with no call. If they call it they will reduce scrums after the whistle.

I have to give Burr credit. After the hit he took from Richards he got up and got back into the play, rather than going looking for Richards, It was a good clean hit, part of the game and he took it and carried on.

Yep.

The diving is what drives me nuts. I've got no problem with running guys, giving them the lumber, a snow shower, or a shot to the face. The problem I have is when the reverse is done, it seems like our heads snap back quicker, our legs give out faster, and our arms flail easier, than almost any team in the league.

When we score on the PP, this type of behaviour can help us win games. When our PP is shit and we're still pulling that garbage, it's embarrassing. Right now the Canucks need to get their heads out of their asses, realize that hard work wins games, and get on with it.

I will add, however, that last night's game WAS a joke to watch. Half of those penalties wouldn't be called in a regular season game, and now they're called in a playoff game? The reffing has been horrid league-wide all season, and it was absolutely atrocious league-wide in the first night of the Playoffs.

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

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