When these Bruins win.. they win big. If only they didn't let in those ridiculous goals in the beginning of the series.. unbelievable what I've been watching.. where's the consistency.
Just parroting the media.The Horton injury was a dirty hit, the Raymond injury was just unfortunate.
As great as he is at home, Boston was one shot away from winning each of those 3 games in Vancouver. Game 7 should be a fun game.In Vancouver Luongo....doesn't suck. He's actually as good as he used to / always has been. Something about Boston and Chicago turns him into shit. How can you let fans get to you that badly and still play in the NHL...on the "best" team during the regular season.
My sentiments exactly.I don't like how it has been coming down to "whoever can injure the most players on the other team wins"....The hit on Raymond was NOT dirty but it was so pointless and unnecessary
You know bending someones back severely and incredibly fast is going to cause more than just excruciating pain. He lost the puck, why do you finish that hit if you know it's going to possibly end someones hockey career.
Yeah it could have been avoided if Boychuk didn't finish the check. But then if Raymond comes back around and gets into the play Boychuk gets shit from his coach on the bench. Hindsight is 20/20. He made the right play, Raymond just got caught in an awkward position, pretty much the definition of a freak injury. I feel bad for him, with all the crap that's happened in these Finals so far it's a shame something accidental happens on top of it.I don't like how it has been coming down to "whoever can injure the most players on the other team wins". Have some class. The hit on Raymond was NOT dirty but it was so pointless and unnecessary - it could have been avoided.
Yeah, we should have been sensitive to the feelings of a team known for diving, flopping and faking injuries to get penalties. It's completely unreasonable to expect a capacity crowd to just stay silent when their team makes a good defensive play and then play is stopped. If the Boston fans cheered when he got up then you would have said "I can't believe they cheered when a Canucks player got hurt, what savages". Don't pretend like there was anything they could have done to make you "respect" Boston fans because we both know that won't happen.Say what you will about the hit itself, but the worst part was the Boston crowd seeing Raymond lying on the ice and taking the opportunity to chant "Luooooooongoooooooo", and then as he is helped off the ice, chanting "Let's go Bruins".
Keep hating, I'll be going to my 7th championship parade this decade.Boston fans are fucking terrible people.
If Vancouver wasn't such a shitty team to root for, I'd be rooting for them.
I dont know why any team should have respect for anyone on Vancouver besides a few players at this point...11[23:08] <&BeauJacques> i just watched that hit on raymond by boychuk
11[23:09] <&BeauJacques> its not against the rules, but its fucking dirty
11[23:09] <&BeauJacques> that shows how little respect players have for each other these days
that's what I said last night and I stick by it, I agree with everything Heysup said
I'd say there are a few players I don't respect with the majority being just "no opinion". I don't see what Raymond has done to lose respect. It's like people who call the Sedins divers when really it's Henrik. It's annoying as Daniel gets hit and the refs assume he's diving when he's not.I dont know why any team should have respect for anyone on Vancouver besides a few players at this point...
Also, to add to the fans comments, one time...one of the guys blew some kid up on the boards at our home rink, and while everything was quiet and the doctor was looking at him on the ice our fans started chanting "awkward moment."
Why? It just should have been an interference penalty. If you want to talk about suspensions how about Edler's hit. A race for the puck on an icing, and Edler doesn't even go for the puck, he just drills Peverley into the boards, while he is going at full speed. Its an illegal hit and one of the most dangerous hits in hockey.I'm rooting for Boston, but if you're going to suspend Rome for the Horton hit, Boychuk should be suspended for the Raymond hit.
That was seriously painful to watch
Don't project your own inability to have a balanced, nuanced opinion onto me. In fact, I saw and noticed at the time that the Boston fans who were right at the glass on the play clapped for Raymond as he got up. It's obviously not everyone in the arena who is jeering, but it was just as loud as their regular chants, implying it was more than just a handful of drunk idiots.Don't pretend like there was anything they could have done to make you "respect" Boston fans because we both know that won't happen.
and this is why the sport will never be cleaned up, thanksI dont know why any team should have respect for anyone on Vancouver besides a few players at this point...
