The hit on Briere was clean. I never said it wasn't.
“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
And it's clearly a dive. You can see in both of their postures. Schenn doesn't hit hard, and Crosby does nothing to brace himself, then looks first at the ref. Why don't you just admit you didn't see the whole clip and spoke out of your ass?
Also, again, it was after the whistle, after the play was dead, from behind, on the way to the bench. It was a cheap shot.
I'm not sure if Crosby embellished it, but his head snaps back from the contact in an unnatural way. Maybe he didn't need to fall down...I can't say for sure. The penalty wasn't called, though, because of the other events going on.
Keep in mind I'm not commenting on crosbys contact before this incident, I'm only commenting on the shot to the back a long time later after a play is very dead. Had Schenn wanted to make a point, he should have done it to Crosby's face, because any other way is a cheap shot on an unsuspecting and unprotected player.
Also note that Crosby really hasn't said much about the hit when asked, and only looked to the refs afterwards but didn't bitch and moan.
I was just asking your opinion for context,because as I've said, I usually consider you to be reasonable.The hit on Briere was clean. I never said it wasn't.

oh god this is going to be THE most intense first round. even though both pit and phi calmed down after the early fight during todays game. it'll probably be like that for the first few games. i picture it getting really intense around game 5
Well it's a drag i know, but there's only one place to go.

- Evgeni Malkin (Penguins)
- Daniel and Henrik Sedin (Canucks)
- Tim Thomas (Bruins)
I didnt realize hank and dank are 1 player.
Pittsburgh has definitely cooled off a lot since the winning streak which makes me that much more nervous about this first round match up. They looked so-so against a Philly team minus giroux and bryzgalov, granted both teams were probably not throwing 100% into the game. I still think the Pens make it to the next round, but this is the kind of series that can take a toll on you through the rest of the playoffs.
