seriously, people need to take a very,very deep breath about the McLennan slash. come on, real hockey fans will tell this used to happen all the time. I remember Ron Hextall jabbing the forward infront for position to see where the puck. Hextall did slash players and faced the consequences. He would a) face the player (thats call players policing themselves or b) get a fined.
This suspension was brought on by the Ray Ferraro or people in the media who wants fighting out of hockey FOREVER!.
People need to suck it up and understand that you cant get the volience out of the Hockey.
Players today have no respect for each and it goes back to the instagator rule. Since Bettman and his gang try to curb fighting and let the frustration on ice continue it allow fighting turn these players into cheapshot artists becuase the frustration they cant use in a fight can only be released in a cheapshot.....
Vancover Canucks = 2000 Philadelphia Flyers
Vancouver Cauncks look similar to a team that i watch in 2000. Philadelphia Flyers team that was leading 3-1 going into a game 5 but they had 3 times to close it out but the couldnt. 2007 Vancover Canucks look the same, but Canucks are under alot more pressure because their home game is in O'Canada.
Paul Holmgren is a very smart GM
After watching the Predators and Thrashers selling their future to the Philadelphia Flyers for broken down Veterans, Paul Holmgren deserves a 15 year contract after those trades.......
