I’ve been talking to some Boston Bruins fans and they’ve all said they’re refusing to watch the Eastern Conference Finals because they can’t bear to watch it. Hey dooshnozzles, time to get over it. Grow up bros. If you really like hockey then you can’t get enough of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Last night’s 2-1 overtime loss for the Rangers was another ESPN classic. And of course Montreal won it the only way they can win games – with lots of controversy.
If you didn’t realize it by now, the Montreal Canadiens have the most fraudulent fan base in all of sports. Never has this been more apparent than it is right now. Habs fans are all up in arms that their fourth liner Brandon Prust is being suspended two games for this hit on the New York Rangers Derek Stepan:
I mean, how can anyone say that hit wasn’t dirty and not burst into laughter? It was late, it was high, and worst of all the two players were not equals. Look, I get why they were going after Stepan. He’s a good young player. But if you’re gonna try to take him out like they obviously did there, then you have to send someone after him that’s of equal or greater value. Otherwise it’s bush league bullshit. Stepan had 17 goals and 40 assists this year. Prust went for a whopping 6 goals and 7 helpers. So who got the better of this deal? Unless they were willing to have Max Pacioretty risk injury and suspension, then Montreal had a lot more to gain from this than New York. Typical Montreal.
The bottom line was that this was a premeditated and desperate move by a team that was facing certain elimination on the road. Montreal was about to go down three games to none, so they obviously conspired to take out anyone in a blue shirt who can put the puck in the net. Obviously.
So if a Bruins player does something like this, then I pretty much take whatever punishment happens. Earlier this season Sean Thornton beat Brooks Orpik like he was Birmingham police officer trying to keep a black guy from registering to vote. I’m actually on record for saying that his 15 game suspension was perfectly reasonable. Because when you’re in the wrong, you’re in the wrong.
But that’s because I’m from Massachusetts and thus I’m a reasonable human being. But in Montreal there is no reason. Only yahooism. I really, truly felt like even their fan base would have to look at that hit and say, “Yea, there’s no possible way I can defend that.” But I forgot I was dealing with the biggest bunch of ass clowns in the Western Hemisphere. On their Facebook page I saw moronic comment after moronic comment about the two game suspension Prust received today:
It simply doesn’t get any more Montreal than my girl Stacey here. People should be screaming abut this? That’s the standard Montreal rationale when they don’t get their way. Chara doesn’t get suspended for a clean hit on Pacioretty? Better call the cops. Prust is suspended for an obviously late and dirty head shot? Start screaming.
Yea because Montreal can’t win this series without Brandon fucking Prust. Who will man the right side of their fourth line for 8 minutes a game now?
Get off the ice if you can’t take a hit? Dude, your favorite team is the Montreal fucking Canadiens. Do you realize what a hypocrite you are? Montreal – a team that prides itself in falling down and getting power plays. A team that frowns upon physical play. A team that thinks the Bruins are a bunch of ogres and bullies. Now all of a sudden your philosophy is “get off the ice if you can’t take a hit?” You realize that would result in ZERO Canadiens left on the ice right?
So it was dirty, but only in the sense that it was late, which makes it dirty. Got it.
You gotta love how all of a sudden Canadiens’ fans fancy themselves the bruisers of the NHL. I wanted to know how they could possibly pretend to justify the Prust hit, while still demanding that the Chara-Pacioretty hit was dirty, so I asked them:
Oh OK. How exactly do you ALMOST end up in a wheel chair? What does that even mean anyway?
What Montreal fans are most fired up about is that Prust is getting two games, while Kreider got nothing for his incidental run in with Carey Price, which knocked the Habs goalie out for the series:
Who the fuck names these people? I swear Montreal is some sort of bizarro world. What planet do these people come from where they actually have convinced themselves that Prust launching himself at a defenseless goal scorer is the same thing as Kreider accidentally falling into the goalie. Not that Mona, Sadjo, or Sonia actually watches sports, but if they did they would’ve noticed that Kreider made a nice move on Emelin
split the defense
was purposely tripped from behind by Emelin, which caused him to lose his balance
and crash into Carey Price.
The fact that people believe that Kreider and Prust’s actions were somehow comparable proves only one thing – their drugs up in Canada are way, way better than our drugs in the states.
Feel free to share your thoughts to keep the conversation going.
