I want both teams to beat up on each other, a poop stirer like Kadri ignites that

Fans complain about the lack of intensity in games. They hate the staged fights. But what drives legitimate intensity is emotion. When a games intensity increases so does the emotion. The result is a cross check to the face.

You start handing out 7 gamers for that then say goodbye to any emotional investment from the players in the future.

So you would rather a chicken poop use his stick as a weapon, rather than drop his gloves?
Can you imagine if everyone felt the need to use their stick every time the intensity level increases?

Are you still sour from 2011?
- Reubenkincade


Sure, or does that make me less of a fan? Or maybe a less knowledgeable fan? Either way, I (frank)ing hate that team.

No one said you were less of a fan. I just dont get the hate. Chara, Marchand and Bergeron are the only remaining players (I believe) from the team. Management is different as well. I just dont get the hate, they were the better team and it was ages ago.

Fair enough, I have hated the Leafs since I started watching hockey in 1970 and wouldn't want too see that crap happen to 1 of their players.
If it was a fight and 1 of them got KO'd, fair enough.

Also, I am not 1 to judge what kind of a fan someone is, nor do I care what kind of fan they are, although I dislike the smugness of several of the analytics crowd.😁

No, a suspension was appropriate for Kadri’s use of the stick. The length is unfortunate from a fans perspective because the games will lose a bit of it’s intensity.

But to suggest a lengthy suspension for that is a bit reactionary considering cross checking is pretty standard in the NHL throughout its history. So is spearing, boarding, punches to the face, and really nasty stick work, even from some of our greatest hockey heroes.

I like to think our team has historical rivalries. As a fan, hate makes those rivalries relevant.

We used to have historical rivalries with LA, Chicago and Minny but as of today, I dont really see us as having a current or active one with any of them. I wont disagree, rivalries are crucial in sports, but we havent been relevant to Boston, or vice versa, since the 2011 finals, in my opinion.

Or even keep the team there for more than 1 season. This team get one crack at the cup and the implodes the following season. And another 10 to 12 years go by before we get another.

Don’t you dare make me feel immature for hating Boston. Don’t you dare.

I want to hate freely, without guilt or shame. Can’t you give an old man his one pure pleasure?
