Good Lord.



Hard to call Ray Emery a flake when he clearly loves to fight. God love him.

Oh, and the Oilers won tonight.

Anyone else think that's a cheap hit?

Not the one on Drury.

Phat Lemur said...

The hit was clean...unfortunate, but clean.

Ruff is a coward.

And people say fighting is bad for hockey....how many blogs don't have this video up right now? And how many people will make it through the morning without hearing about this?

I guess zero.

People like public executions too.

I always find goalie fights to be so cumbersome. First you have to skate halfway across the ice, then you have to shed your paddings and helmet, THEN you fight. Or in the case of Biron, fall down on your ass after your knee pads get tangled up in Emery's. Kinda anticlimactic.

Well it's good thing that the NHL is in the business of selling tickets and not morality now isn't it?

That's right, somebody just poo pooed on goalie fights. "It's takes so long for them to get to the middle of the ice..whine, whine, cry, cry" Christ, it must be a real treat living with you captain buzz kill.

Take a deep breath, McLea.

Doogie said...

Eyeris does have a point, but man, when they get going...well, Vernon vs. Roy, or Hextall vs. Potvin.

Man, can you imagine Hextall and Billy Smith going at it? That'd be one for the ages.

Ahem.

How about Cloutier vs Emery? I'd pay good money to see that.

You do know that you just wrote that, right, Mr. Drop In & Dump on Everyone's Comments? Take a chill pill.

the 2007 McLea: invisible to indignant to zero seconds.

A chill pill? You didn't just use that term did you? Seriously, where did get this stuff? Old Archie comics? Saved by The Bell re-runs?

Captain Buzz Kill...Mr. Drop In & Dump on Everyone's Comments...Saved by the Bell...this is getting ugly. To go back to the first comment, it did look like a cheap hit, and even though I love anything that leads to a goalie fight, I hate to see Drury get hurt like that.

Stuey said...

Steve Shields, Garth Snow, and Sean Burke - 3 more goalies who could throw.

Seriously, what is Murray crying about? Lindy put out his tough guys, boo hoo. Are they not allowed to play or something? Murray said "He gets the last change, he put his tough guys against my scorers." Well why did you put your scorers on the ice after that hit, knowing what was coming next?

These teams meet again Saturday. Ottawa will surely dress Chris McGrattan.

Kstie O'D - hardcore!

Art Vandelay said...

Do all the Senators skaters hate Emery that much?
And to answer the poll question: cheapshot.

Dan said...

It wasn't a cheapshot. Ruff is a drama queen and a spaz. Drury shoulda had his helmet on tighter. Are hits not allowed a nanosecond after the shot?
I still remember Ruff's antics after losing the cup to Dallas, at a rally in Bufalo "I have only two words, no goal".
What a guy. Like a little kid with a tantrum, and big goons at his disposal.

Black Dog said...

When I was a little kid I wish I'd had big goons at my disposal.

Steve from Ottawa said...

Emery probably would not have looked kindly on a teamate interfering... the dude was smilin', having fun... check out you tube, there are a couple of emery's scraps from his AHL and minor league days...

Avery just became my new favorite goalie.... man, I can't get enough of his smiling face throughout that whole deal.

NB Oiler Fan

It's Emery NOT Avery (see: Jackass just traded to the Rangers)

Dan said...

Aw, thanks. It's comments like this that inspire (shame?) us to update the site more frequently.

Good luck with the blog!

Goalie fights can be a beautiful thing, staged though they are.

I downloaded the Blood Game of Detroit-Colorado from 1997, and Emery-Biron has got nothing on the Roy-Vernon fight from that game.
