Joke.  Cannibal has 3 points.  Only person whe didn’t see bite was Mike Murphy.  The NHL is a joke.  Mike Tyson should suit up for the Bruins next game.  He should have been suspended at least 1 game.

Glad to see the teams moved on after the league ruled…apparently neither 13 user names nor Milbury got the memo.

Awesome first video…

I know. I’ve been very impressed how the Bruins and Canucks handled the whole thing after the league ruling, too.

Great video, I agree!  Saturday night in Van is going to be one helluva a good time tonight… smile

Funniest comment I saw today was…Luongo couldn’t come up with any big saves in OT.

Heh

I’d say trashing Luongo was a sport in the NHL… but really, it’s even a sport in Vancouver itself, to trash our own damn goalies.  So I guess he knew what he was signing up for.  smile

Take off your “HOMER” goggles and you might see clearly.  It’s a joke that a player can bite another player and not be suspended.  It’s a joke.  Denis Potvin said he should have been suspended 2 games..  The NHL looks like pro wrestling with this stupidity.  I’m not a fan of either team, by the way.

13…my point is…there is no point dwelling on it.  What about Horton shooting a water bottle at a fan during the Tampa series?  What goes around comes around…  The ruled and we move on.

If you don’t like the NHL…have fun watching the NBA

I have to agree with GZ Expat. And for the record, I wasn’t an advocate of suspending Horton, either.  (Whatever that’s worth…)

Anyway, Claude Julien isn’t using the issue as any kind of excuse, that’s for sure. He’s being very genuine and forthright in his handling of everything.

what a nail biter.  Great game, the crowd on granville was electric!  Not sure if i’ll go to the roxie again.  Waited 3 hrs in line, only to watch 50 ppl budge in front, and another 150 go in through the vip line while i waited.  Didn’t even get a seat and had to sit on the floor.  Gonna plan it out better next time, but we won anyways so its all good =)

WTF was THomas doing on that OT goal?  Its one thing to be aggressive, its another to be so out of position that you even block Chara from doing his job.

Kelley Hrudey said that Thomas has to be great for the Bruins to win, while Greasy Lou can be average.  It shows.

I guess Don Cherry was so pissed off on Saturday that he didn’t even come back for a re-cap.  Don’t blame him.

This series should be a quick one.

Fire that prick Julien too.  Where the F—K is the intensity & sacrafice & heart from the Bruins.

Lucic sucks!!!!!
