dion phaneuf is a great young player and i liked him a lot when i saw him play his rookie year but he has grown to be a goon he can hit like a train but he picks on the small players he is a dirty player and i believe a coward.
Boston fan here, no elbow in that hit,pure shoulder on a guy with his head down. If you can't see that you've probably never played the game or have and don't know which end of a stick to hold. Millen was a goalie so his view already mentally tainted
i am sick of these idiot homer announcers. "phaneuf looks for guys with there head down" what kinda of comment was that what is the first thing u learn in minor hockey . keep ur head up or end up like on ur ass. the hits phaneuf throw is no where the scott stevens wendel clarke style in late 80's and 90's. since the rule change these new generation players think they do not worry bout being held up so put there head down skate around well thats what happens. i would also like to point out " good for spezza for standing up heatley" these same announcers go on and on and on about how there are always these uncalled for fights after clean hits. i am a leafs fan who has misfortune of living in ottawa for a while now. the sens fans ( what a joke) only support a winning team but boy when they win every overpaid government worker digs in their trunk to find there sens window flag for their car , and memorizes a few players names and throw their two cents in at the water cooler and talk **** about leaf and habs fans ( true hockey fans)
Dion slight edge. THERE WAS NO ELBOW, GET YOUR COLLECTIVE HEADS OUT OF YOUR COLLECTIVE A$$!!!! hey dunrobin, should we play like they do in migget league. no hitting at all. go suck and egg. don't ruin my sport, go watch golf.
no senator's plaeyr would ever do this, would they??? as in hit a man with his head down...as in what chris neal did to chris drury (then with buffalo) about 2-3 years ago. right! as clean a hit as you'll see. if dion is such a dirty player, would those famous hits all make EVERY hits highlight reel i've ever seen???? you people need to be honest.....
heatley and spezza (escpecailly spezza) look as if they're auduitioning for a breck shampoo commerical (remember breck , all you lower 40s people????). my son could put both these guys in the locker room with one hand tied behind hiw back!!!!
spezza's effort was similar to hossa's recently,,,,,,both looked as though they were swatting flies from their heads........
