  1. Human garbage seems excessive, but Domi’s actions shouldn’t be defended either in my opinion. You don’t drop the glove and clock someone who clearly isn’t engaging in the fight. If you want him to retaliate, make him angry by playing hard hockey, and I don’t know, maybe scoring a few goals? It was dirty, and should keep him out of all remaining preseason. Also doesn’t make him human garbage. He was losing, lost his temper, and made a mistake. We’ve probably all done worse.

  2. My god that's the softest crap I've heard. Hockey is a physical game. If a guy is throwing big clean checks and you can't accept it, you shouldn't play. Fighting is illegal. There's a penalty for it. Nobody should be resorting to illegal play because of your legal play. And if the checks are high? The referee is the one who should do something. This is the same crap expressed in baseball. Playing too well? Someone has to bean you so you stop making pitchers look bad. It's pathetic. Your job is to play hockey, not illegally play ho

  3. Seriously? So you just used your keyboard to 'sucker punch' a young hockey player? I wouldn't even call what Domi did a sucker punch. He was looking Ekblad right in the ey (or at least the chin) Ekblad, the much bigger player, could have defended himself. So we have a young hockey player, who is willing to play tough and we call him human garbage? Wow! Welcome to Montreal, where we throw Habs players under the bus!!! Terrible.

  5. I am happy to see Peca on back to backs. So happy that Hudon and Lehkonen are in the same line If Ouellet is able to shine while playing with Despres, he would notch up in my D depth list I missed hockey so much!

  6. The league is not getting to it. Too much goes unpenalized. Emelin typically played clean hockey so no deal, but i see dirty crap go uncalled all the time. Got no issue with someone getting punched out for it. I enjoy the odd good fight. Got no time for the staged fighting between boogaard and Laraque because Cooke had a dirty hit on Crosby 10 minutes earlier. But if someone is going around slashing and bumping the goalie, bring on the punch face. Fun part of hockey for me.

  7. If someone has to stand up to defend a teammate, that's fine (and although some might classify Byron's scrap as that, I wouldn't). The pre-arranged stuff (like Deslauriers' fight against New Jersey) can go away and not come back. Imagine if Byron reaggravated his shoulder injury, would anyone have been happy about him dropping the gloves? Players need to be smart and through two preseason games, we've seen a few stupid decisions from the Habs already.

  8. Yes, I’m sure Emelin loves having a steel plate in his face - probably requested one even though it wasn’t needed so he wouldn’t have to fight ?

  10. Deslaurier’s scrapping days are likely kaput.

  11. Many of these fractures require hardware placement for fixation. Can only speculate since I don’t know the actual nature of the fracture.

  12. I hope Domi doesn't get suspended for too many games. We need him on the ice for opposing teams to score. Grab a guy, guy doesn't fight back, still crack him. Domi is human garbage like his papi.

  13. There it is.... DON being DON. And in fact, I will say 100% that Deslauriers had hardware placement and near 100% chance that we will never see him scrap again. - Signed Dr. Recchi. It’s going to be a great year boys!

  14. The only thing this does is makes sure Domi isn't playing first line centre on opening night. Unless he gets a soft slap on the wrist and just misses exhibition games. You're talking like Leaf fans after David Clarkson jumped the boards. It's an exhibition game. It led to Huberdeau being a big idiot as well and fighting Byron. That's what happens. It doesn't stop anything. It just means the other team will try to escalate, which they did. But oh well. Habs fans have had Bruins envy for so long it's no surprise they get a Domi and suddenly feel tougher and like that wi

  15. Right, and what Don is saying is that Emelin was likely happy to have that built-in excuse to not fight because he didn't want to face the consequences of his physical play in the first place. That was always my biggest issue with Emelin - if you want to play a game as physical as he does, you should be able and willing to stand up for yourself.

  16. My god that is the most naive post ever. Owners like fighting and fans seem to love fights breaking out and thus is no suspension nor fine to do it, so it is part of the game, unlike any other sport. Is that OK, of course not, but wont change until someone is killed or paralyzed.

  17. So 'likely' is just a wild ass guess or poor choice of word. Emelin got pummelled by a huge goon (another ex-Hab wasnt it?) and likely was OK using the excuse that he 'couldnt' fight again anyways, when he likely didnt want to ever fight to begin with. But, the only issue was poster saying "likely" done, based on nothing or being another Recchi-type diagnosis.

  18. I don't want Domi's on Montreal. Heck they shouldn't be in the league. I want skilled players who play the game right. You know, the kind of guys who can score 30 goals. Not sure how to get a guy like that. Maybe you have to draft them. Max Domi is garbage like his dad and him grabbing a player who doesn't want to fight and socking him is extra awful when wearing a Habs sweater. Maybe you enjoy someone not playing hockey in hockey, but I watch hockey for hockey. I'll be glad to throw him and Shaw under the bus and drive it myself. Never wanted them here and I'm sure as hell not go
