- Comment on Penguins look to sweep season series with Habs; White suspended five games (2013-04-17 13:28:46)
White has a specific skill set that is not based in finesse, but hard work and being close to the edge. When he goes over the edge, we all crucify him because he's "being selfish", "not being a team player" or something similar. When he gets close to the edge, we applaud his team spirit and being popular with his teammates. We can't really have it both ways, but we can expect him to mature and hopefully be better at picking his spots. It's also hard to get on him too much when his biggest brain cramps came against Steve Ott and the Flyers. Speaking of brain cramps, I'd respectfully suggest that we look back at the "hockey play" that Ference put on Jeff Halpern (first time around) a few years ago. Ference's action were much more egregious, yet were never penalized. The actual similarities between both hits are interesting to say the least. By the way, first time post. Really wanted to put the Ference reference in here as I didn't see it already made. Enjoy the posters and their passion, even if I don't necessarily always agree with their content.
