Good thing that McCormick's back...
because, having to watch
an endless parade of Sabre, non-fighters
get, relentlessly, tuned
while, unsuccessfully, trying
to defend ''Floppie the Goalie''...
is getting to be a little monotonous.
As far as the fisticuffs go the slight edge goes to Greening, but honestly, Miller was lumbering behind the goal like a pregnant water buffalo. Greening was in pursuit of the play and slowpoke Miller got in the way while clearing the puck. The hit was not intentional like Lucic's and 2-2's.
miller is pathetic,he flops faster then a 2 dollar hooker,and to hear ruff whine for how many years now,it gets sickening.Now ehroff is suddenly tough.If your that big and you attack a guy while still wearing your face shield,and the guy you jump is much smaller you shouldn't end up on your back with your legs spread.
Good on Ehrhoff standing up like that. We know he's not a fighter, but as soon as Miller hit the net, Ehrhoff was looking to get rid of his gloves. He didn't jump him either, turned around, faced him head on, grabbed him and went for it. Sure, it turned out he didn't really know how to fight, but we knew that, and he fought fairly well, if awkwardly.
Greening tagging Miller was only really dirty in the sense that tripping is dirty. It's a tactic, and an effective one against most goalies, and he did it without steamrolling him. Then he answered the bell. All in all, this is just good, kind of amusing hockey.
Not sure the Sabres appreciate Ehrhoff throwing down, but many fantasy gms must love it. Impressed with what little he showed, but that only speaks to how low my expectations were. Not sure who was flailing more there, Miller or Ehrhoff..
