Hatcher is Crosby's b@#%h

Postby The Current One on Sun Oct 29, 2006 11:10 am

My prediction before last night's game: Crosby would have a monster game, and the Pens would win 7-2. Off by one goal....

Is there no better feeling than watching the Pens completely humiliate the Flyers in their own building? To watch Crosby skate circles around that pylon Hatcher? To watch him pick Hatcher's pocket and score in the same motion? No matter what tactics those goons used, the end result was 8 goals against.

Pens fans, the tide has turned. We've endured many years now of losses suffered at the hands of the Flyers, but those days are over. Crosby is an absolute Flyer killer, and we're lucky to be able to watch it for the next 10-15 years.

Let's go Pens!!!

Yeah I know last year Crosby was pissed off about how things went against them last year and them taking cheap shots on him. They can't even touch him now and it's wonderful to see their whole team falling apart in front of our eyes.

Hatcher is useless without his stick. His days are over.

Crosby and Malkin must get excited when they see Hatcher or Rathje matched up against them.

There is a better feeling. Being there waving to Flyers fans as they head to the exits.

That has to be awesome being there in the Flyers building and seeing that beatdown. I can see them going nuts after taking that 1-0 lead and then going completely silent after we pile up the points.

It was even better after having to deal with those animals in Philly last year when they beat us.

Awfully quiet in there last night, and plenty of empty seats, even during the 1st period.

I thought Philthy would place Hatcher on waivers when they waived the allegedly culpable 3 a few weeks ago. Instead the new regime must think he is part of the solution. He played 28+ minutes (out of 65) the other night versus ATL. Between his +/-, and the Afinogenov/Crosby goals he is the poster boy for being a liability in the new NHL.

It is very enjoyable to see his public suffering/humiliation.

pens victory causes flyers to call meeting...

Postby penny lane on Sun Oct 29, 2006 1:30 pm

"Usually the Flyers save those infamous closed-door, players-only meetings for a bad effort against a bad team.
After Saturday night's game, the Flyers broke a bit from tradition.
This time they got together following a bad effort against a good team.
The Flyers talked among themselves for a good 15 minutes after an embarrassing 8-2 pasting by the rejuvenated Pittsburgh Penguins."


just baby steps for the penguins. they had to beat the
devils in a game that meant something. they had to
go to Philadelphia & win a game. They will face the challenge
of the west coast trip...with or without Jordan Staal.

I usually don't think like this, but I agree. The guy is a grade A dick, and I love watching him "handle" his humilation the only way he knows how-cross checking and open ice hits with 15 seconds left in an 8-2 loss.

Amazing... Hatcher gets owned by Sid on the scoreboard and then beat by a lightweight in a fight!

Time to retire!

Or better yet, stay playing for the Flyers to bring them down!

I agree. My sentiments are immature and I would not want my kids to know I am capable of such thoughts. It is kind of sick to enjoy another persons suffering but somehow I find this very enjoyable. I guess that is the price pro athletes pay for doing their jobs under a public microscope every day. I felt sorry for aged Bobby Bowden as he ambled across the field last night after his defeat, but Hatcher isn't a sympathetic figure.

I'm not a fight freak, but I was glad Thornburn held his ground and a bit more against Mr. Hatcher. How long has it been since we have guys that can hold their own in a legit scrap ie. Colby, Thornburn & Cairnes. At least two of them have other positive aspects to being in the lineup :)

I went back & looked at the play (in slow motion) where Sid picked Hatcher's pocket.
Hatcher moved out in front of the net and Handzus actually stepped on the puck as Hatcher moved up ice & knocked it away from him just long enough for Sid to get in the & lift his stick.

Like the rest of you said, I take alot of pleasure watching Hatcher get owned over & over again after the BS he pulled last year.

Ummm.... Handzus is a Chicago Blackhawk and is also out for the season. I'm doubly sure he didn't step on that puck. :wink:

Were there a lot of Pens fans there? At times it sounded as though there were.

Also, and I apologize if this was brought up before but I found an interesting little tidbit of info...

The last time the Flyers gave up eight goals at home was November 29, 1991 against.....................................







Pittsburgh! :D

There were some Pens fans scattered around. I watched the replay today, and it sounded a lot louder on the tv than it did being there when the Pens scored.

That being said, there was a lot more black and gold there this year compared to the one game I went to last season.

By the time the game ended, with the amount of people in the crowd, it may have been 50/50 :lol:

Seriously, By far the worse Flyers defenseman I can ever remember in my life and I've seen alot of bad defenseman for the Flyers since I started following them in the early 80's.

Anyways nice win boys. You guys own us especially Crosby who I can't give enough respect to. You're team is very impressive. This is going to be a loong couple years to get this mess straightend out.

Good of you to say so. Why you continue to get tagged by some around here as a troll is a mystery to me.

Well we can all relate to having to watch a Hatcher play defense on our teams. At least you didn't trade away Zubov to obtain yours....

My second hockey game ever was against the flyers. I forget when it was (im gunna say about 5 years ago) my whole family went which was really cool. It was at home and we won 9-3. (i think) almost as good as the game we went to on my sister birthday and we were losing, then with like 1:30 left someone tied it. then in OT, Marozov(sp?) won it for us. great memories.

What's your point here? A lot of people don't like Hatcher. We get it. Move on. Brevity and uniformity are the bases of any good message board.

Did you place a bet that the pens would beat the flyers by 7 goals?
