Could be wrong, but I think his post was meant to be sarcastic.

Was just on the Hockey News website - George Parros leads the Habs with 20 penalty minutes. Less than one game played. Too funny.

Still frustrated as hell about last night, but stuff happens. A defensive breakdown leads to a nice goal (no chance for Price), then 2 softies, and it's pretty much over. The team fought back, but at that point the Leafs (as any team would) are in shutdown mode and the game becomes super-tight. Habs start taking chances to open it up, the Leafs take advantage to create odd-man rushes. My point is that if even one of those first 2 softies is stopped, the game dynamic is completely different. Even though I'm a Price supporter, this one's on him, as I'm sure he would heartily agree because he's a stand-up guy. The team still has a couple of missing pieces, but the sky is not falling. Have a great Sunday.

Just a joke, man. Not meant to offend anyone. Besides, I was actually thinking "gazing at the Bruin's logo on the shirt worn by the girl on the left".

Also being a reasonable person, I don't believe Lucic truly intended to injure Emelin. However, it was an irresponsible and dangerous reaction to an impending hit that created a risk of injury that, unfortunately, came into being. No different with high sticks that open a guy's mouth up, or a check to the head that results in a concussion - in 99% of these cases I am certain that the offender did not have "injure this guy" on his mind. The litmus test is the action, not the result. Lucic could have done what everyone else does, which is to brace himself and get low. Instead he brought his knee up, resulting in an injury.

He indeed pointed out the knee, but clearly saw nothing wrong with it. No mention at all of it being a dirty move by a meat-headed Neanderthal. "Folks, don't try to hit a guy like Lucic - you're gonna get hurt." If that had been Lars Eller's knee on Johnny Boychuk, Cherry would be calling for his head while pointing out that all Europeans are filthy dirty players.

I'm certainly not jumping on the doom and gloom bandwagon - we're still 1st in the Northeast. However, I have to agree with Boone's assessment, as I kept saying the same things throughout the game last night -- no net traffic, a butt-load of shots from the perimeter and bad angles, and sloppy with the puck (e.g. Lars Eller, although he wasn't the only one). Makes the shots on goal and puck possession stats look great, but it's not how you win hockey games.

My personal favourite: "saisit en vol" (not sure about the spelling) Literal translation: "grabbed in flight" (i.e. the puck)
