Those of you that know me know I am all about the Canucks and of course the Sedin's. Regardless, it was a clean hit which is not uncommon when we have no one to protect our better players. Like jemihami said, we really need an enforcer. Winning is fun, but it is sure frustrating getting the crap beat out of us on a regular basis. There is always someone taking liberty with the Canucks, and no one to do anything about it. Where is Geno Odjick when we need him?
canucks need an enforcer for entertainment and morale. lets say they did have john scott. lets be honest here, neil would've done the same thing and then avoided scott the rest of the game. good guy rome with the loss after a nice big hit.
i wish enforcers were actually able to enforce, but as it is, they are for morale and the fans more than anything these days. back in the day a guy like odjick would've absolutely pummeled neil, but nobody wants to set their team at a big disadvantage nowadays. sad, it'd be nice to see guys like neil answer for running another team's star, instead of beating on the toughest guy on the ice, who is no match.
i'm pretty down with uh, fag2. sounds about right to me.
