Default Cheapshot artists...

WTF is it with the scumbags who play for the Flyers? 2 have been suspended for wicked cheapshots already and after watching Randy Jones hit Patrice Bergeron from behind Saturday, driving him head-first into the boards, rendering him bloody, unconscious and motionless (images of Travis Roy were running through my head), I gotta wonder what the fukk these jackasses are thinking. Don't get me wrong, hitting is hockey, IMO and I love a good hockey fight, but these guys are friggin cheapshot artists...

I love a clean hit in the corner, a great open ice hip check and a toe to toe hockey fight. These cheapshots are fuggin ridiculous and the fact that this a-hole got off with a 2 game suspension is sick. His ass is grass next time they play...

The Boulerice shot was out of hand....and he got cut for it. Jones shot was overly aggressive, and dangerous if not boneheaded, but he wasn't trying to hurt him the way that he did.

Oh come on now, that's just typical Philadelphia sports, toughen up! Snowballs thrown at Santa, Rose taking out the catcher in all star game, eagles fans cheering when players go down (Michael Irvin). Great town huh? I get to call it home.

Do not get me wrong, I am a Bruins fan, but, Jones is not a cheap shot artist. Boulerice is a repeat offender, and Downie has a rep that precedes him, and they got what 10-15 games?

Jones, with 109 NHL games, until the Bergeron hit had NO major penalties to his name.

The hit was indeed cheap and downright dangerous, and I thought warranted at least 5 games.

They are saying a month for Bergeron - for a concussion? When I played they said you got your bell rung, took a smelling salt, and got back on the ice - you dealt with the headaches and occasional dizziness.

As for the broken nose - you NEVER even thought of missing a shift for a broken nose.

My favorite type of hockey has to be a fast paced wide open type of hockey with Great goal tending, but I also love a ruff and tough type of game with lots of fights as well, provided that it is all clean stuff.

Here's where my brain stops working because it can't keep up, how many other Travis Roy's does the league need to produce before the league takes a ZERO tolerance position to that type of conduct??? Banning an individual from all organized hockey world wide for life IMO is the only answer with repercussions at a civil level that I would suggest. The price NEEDS to be the deterrent for such heinous actions!!!!! There is no place for that type of conduct in hockey and for that matter in any sport at any level! Crips even in war there is rules which govern fairness.

I am not sure I follow the Travis Roy references here. Travis was not injured in the NHL, but rather at the collegiate level. Second, he was not from behind, or even checked into the boards. He lost his balance and fell awkwardly head first into the boards.

Sorry Dave, I guess I should have provided a more detailed explanation of my thoughts. Yes you are right in saying that Travis's incident was outside the NHL, but that doesn't excuse the antics. Players like Tod Purtusie (sp?), Claude Lemu (?), Cicerelle (?), Domi, Granda, Brad May, Dale Hunter, Marty McSolrly (?), Paiement, Mattias Weinhandl, Bureau, Rusznyak, Bergeron, Henry Bousha, Ted Green-Maki, Ruslan Salei and I'm sure many more have all crossed the line as far as fare play goes. Hextall was another great offender which constantly crossed the line.

Being one that has played a ton of sports of all kinds I can understand the emotions associated, but I also understand control.........I guess that's the difference between one person and another.........after all some people are murders. I guess my point here isn't what individual people/ players do, it's what the governing body does in accordance to such actions when they occur. IMO the disciplinary actions are not stiff enough....but that's just me.
