That's just ridiculous! Unfortunately since we all live in the real world that's not going to happen. There are players everywhere just waiting to come up and take your place if you aren't getting the job done. It has always been the case and will always remain the case. Nobody is irreplaceable. You don't do what you are asked to do you will politely be asked to sit the next one out. Love to see you try and prove something like that in court. Then after that gets thrown out for lack of proof you can then try to find work elsewhere with that little puppy hanging over your head. Can anyone say Georges Laracque. Maybe Tek Savvy is hiring other goons who refuse to fight!

But they do show up, they just don't play the game! Was patches a coward??? No he wasn't and look where he is.
Based on your theory would you play chicken with a Semi in your Smart car? Don't be a coward now....
Spin it any way you want the numbers speak for themselves Habs are 4 & 1 i believe agains the Bruins...not much more to say about it....The Bruins have been dominated so one game is not going to make a difference. I believe they call that picking your battles wisely!
In any event i understand what you are saying and get your points but i guess i'm going to respectfully disagree with your stance on it.

True, but Lucic, Thornton, Chara etc....could all decide to goon it up again and take out another of our players too. Something to think about but as far as statements go...that would be beautiful. I could just picture everyone just skate towards the exit and leave the ice and not come back. THAT WOULD BE PRICELESS. I bet Chara wouldn't feel so big after a show like that!

I wonder how Geoffrey Molson's snub of Ray Lalonde is going to translate insofar as the team spirit within the administrative offices...I sense there might be a rift forming in the front office.
Maybe Gomez and Subban can explain to Ray how this is all going to work itself out.

Dude, i was really hoping to let this go and have a fresh start this morning but alas i'm letting it get the better of me.
First you say it's nothing and tell me to grow up. then in your note you say it's something (i.e a minor road bump is something isn't it? It's not much but it's something and that's what i was trying to get from my post originally). Of course some people fly off the handle before actually investigating things then try to justify their overreaction. I asked if anyone had context. Nobody did until many dismissive posts afterward. Had you thought/looked beforew writing you would have seen that i asked if it was something. Bottom line is it's something but PROBABLY not serious. However this kind of thing can grow like a seed and it needs to be addressed by adults in the room.
I didn't suggest anything i asked a question based on the little info i had. The info i had suggested something "NOT TEAM LIKE" occurred and i wanted to get to the bottom of that if at all possible. I think i have come to that conclusion however painful this may have been.
I think i know why i tend not to post much here anymore. rather than having a civil discussion i have to wade through the "BETTER THAN THOU" posts to get to the ones that actually read my post and made a reasonable attempt to answer me!

I didn't know that when i posted, all i had seen was the Youtube video. So the fact that Antichambre commented on it does it mean what we saw didn't happen? The issue is whether it's something or nothing. I'm inclined to think it is a very small something given what i think happened as was discussed above.

I am inclined to think you are right after reading your take on it. Since i didn't have the full picture this makes sense to me. Thanks for the feedback!
- Comment on Canadiens recall Engqvist from Bulldogs (2011-01-19 21:20:31)
So are you saying the youtube feed is a doctored 9/11 conspiracy and the snub didn't happen? I'm not understanding you.

Agreed, i think Carbo needs to take them all bowling!

So the moral of this story is that if people would have answered my question as to whether there was something there behind what i thought i saw we could have avoided this whole exchange.
I clearly stated that i hadn't seen it and was wondering if i was missing the context. Apparently nobody knows and now i am satisfied that something happened between Gomer and PK and it might be trivial and it might be slightly more than that. I hope it's trivial, i'll leave it at that!
