That comment proves you have zero credibility. It was a clear cheap shot. I suppose you think that Burrows' biting was no big deal either. Of course, defending Luongo for his stupid remarks post game 5 and again later at the airport when he could have retracted a bit, is telling enough.
Hey Gronk, stick to a sport you know something about...Watch the hit in full speed, and he hits him no more than a second and a half after he passes the puck. I already said it was a penalty, but NOT worthy of a four game suspension. Burrows is an idiot for biting, but then again, you might too if a guy sticks his glove in your mouth. Luongo didn't have to retract his comments, since that is not the comment he made. Heaven forbid if you did a little investigating to see what the whole comment was, which the media took way out of context.
I see you don't mention Boychuks hit on Mayson Raymond...the one that left him with a broken back. As always stay classy Boston fans.
Those that remained in the arena were great, saluting their team, booing Bettman, cheering loudly when Lucic held the Cup, etc.
Quite a run for the B's. Three game 7 wins, 1 against a pesky arch-rival and the others against 2 more skilled teams, were pleasant surprises to say the least.
All great points....the rioters were not hockey fans, just a bunch of idiots looking for a reason to cause ****...
This was a fantastic series, and Boston deserved to win this cup. That was some of the best goaltending by Thomas in an entire series since Kirk McLean for the Canucks in the 94 loss, or Chris Osgood for the Wings. Well, there has been many great goalie performances over the years, but Thomas' will stand out for a long time to come. And to think, he wasn't even in the NHL until in his 30's. Between him and Tuuka Rask, the Bruins are set for years in goal.
Funny thing....you would think the owners would pay attention when every single time Bettman speaks in public, he is booed. You know, the people that pay for everything that makes hockey successful?
