You've made it clear by this statement that you haven't watched any of Malkin's EL games, and thus are making judgement off of one play that you saw in an Olympic game. If I'm wrong, please post the game and time of another "Bertuzzi Psycho move" that Malkin displayed. Maybe your squirt team should be a bit concerned if this is an example of your recognition of talent.Scott wrote: Just what we need.
I agree. Someone who is willing to battle in front of the net and stick up for himself is what the Penguins need. Well said, Scott.Scott wrote: it is not about camparing the result of Bertuzzi's action,,it is in fact comparing a what if.
The replay clearly shows Lecavalier skating away from Malkin, and Malkin comes up from behind and clearly kicks towards his face, with the intent to injure Lecavalier. Oh, wait? What? Lecavalier pulled him down first? And they were battling in front of the net? Hmm. Yeah, that's probably still the same thing as sucker punching someone from behind and driving their face into the ice.
This Bertuzzi comparison is laughable at best, regardless of your argument about the 'result of the action.' Give me a break.
Steve Moore probably disagrees that the situations were similar.
UUUMMMM....lol, if he ever makes it to the NHL was an exaggeration on them ever getting an agreement in place for him to come over. Has nothing to do with talent. He is amazing on the ice.
As far as the Bertuzzi thing...please read a little more into it than that. It has nothing to do with the aftermath....it does have to do with the fact of kicking with your blade. The incident is over, and nothing happened, sadly unlike the Bertuzzi incident.
The POINT...is that any kind of thought to kick with your blade is SICK. Pure and simple.
Was the Bertuzzi reference a bad example? Yes since people are reading it as a broken neck to nothing happening. Again, not about what didnt happen, but what could have and the fact that he had the notion to kick with his blade. Period.
