  1. Anyone remember when Kassian broke Gagner's Jaw?... He turned down Gazdic's invitation to answer the bell about 15 times... So much for that "The Hills Have Eyes" mutant spewing to the media every chance he gets about players needing to answer the bell for what they do on the ice... Well Zack, I guess that makes you the pu**y... From... https://edmontonsun.com/2016/01/13/oilers-forward-luke-gazdic-says-despite-bad-blood-in-past-zack-kassian-a-welcome-addition/wcm/4ef6211a-b251-41f4-bd5b-a85353f353aa back in 2016 after he joined the Oil... There is no ignoring the bad blood between Kassian and the Oilers dressing room after he broke Sam Gagner’s jaw, made fun of the protective shield he had to wear afterwards and turned down about 15 challenges from Luke Gazdic. But that was then and this is now. Both sides say there is no animosity surrounding his addition to the room. “He was Public Enemy No. 1 there for a period of time, but that’s hockey,” said Gazdic. “You end up playing against guys that you don’t get along with but he’s one of our teammates now and we’ve welcomed him in.
  2. I came across this after I posted... Michael Traikos who has a column called TRAIK-EOTOMY that regularly appears in the sports section of several different newspapers on a regular basis suggested that Kassian should do just that... Zack Kassian has it all wrong. It’s not Matthew Tkachuk who needs a “taste of their own medicine,” be it with another flurry of punches or a well-timed hit the next time that the Edmonton Oilers play the Calgary Flames. Rather, it’s Johnny Gaudreau. You want to send a message to Tkachuk. Send it through his 165-pound teammate. That’s what ex-enforcer John Scott did when he picked a fight with Phil Kessel several years ago, which resulted in David Clarkson earning a 10-game suspension for hopping off the bench in his teammate’s defence. If something similar were to happen, chances are Tkachuk won’t take another run at Kassian again. Not if he wants to see Gaudreau hurt. Though in this clenched- fist chess match, Connor McDavid might also want to keep his head up. It was in all the Sun Newspapers across the country including the Calgary Sun... https://calgarysun.com/sports/hockey/nhl/traik-eotomy-kassian-can-get-revenge-on-tkachuk-in-other-better-ways/wcm/93ce9ac8-dcb0-40ed-8ae6-b4448ba50cdd Several others as well including the National Post... https://nationalpost.com/sports/hockey/nhl/traik-eotomy-kassian-can-get-revenge-on-tkachuk-in-other-better-ways/wcm/2b40a522-8e5d-486a-852c-45f5fef11c What really P's me O, is that there are a lot of so called 'sports journalists' really playing this to build up hatred towards Tkachuk when each and every one of them would love to have him on their favorite team, and if he was, then they would be painting him as a hero for taking out a predatory goon like Kassian... They are just hypocritical asshats spewing sensationalist horseSatoshi instead of actually writing something more relevant about the game of hockey... The day after the game I tuned in to an Edmonton sports radio show to see what they were saying, and it was much the same thing from the hosts, and then the fans... Kassian should go after Gaudreau to send a message... So hopefully the moron doesn't take all this encouragement as a licence to headhunt Gaudreau... One thing is for sure, Kassian is dumb enough...
  3. Couldn't find a clip of it, but it happened right after the whistle with 28 seconds left in the PP, and 7:02 minutes left in the 3rd period...
  4. Nice to have both goalies playing well with consistency... How many seasons has it been since we could say that?...
  5. Need a big 2nd period here... and a good start would be to get the 1st goal...
  6. He is not the smartest guy... A lot of people have no doubt forgotten about when he was under contract with the Habs... He was driving around with two hookers, and then while he was wasted let one of the hookers that was drunk drive his truck which she crashed into a tree,,, He was suspended without pay and placed in a substance abuse program, then he was put on waivers, then he was told not to report to their AHL team after he cleared, and then he was traded to the OIlers without playing even a single game for the Habs... Then 3 years ago he got sued by the company that had leased him the truck for $82K because he had violated their agreement by letting her drive, and then had refused/failed to pay for the truck... Yup, he's a real stand up guy alright... https://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/woman-charged-in-accident-involving-former-canadiens-zack-kassian
  7. I like Backlund, but not with Gaudreau and Monahan.. and then it has to be considered that he is on track for his worst season since 2014/15
  8. The Flames better be the team that comes to play hockey... While i believe in hockey revenge, now is not the time... The standings are too close, and the points are too important... Wait until things cool down a bit, and then get them when they don't expect Satoshi to hit the fan... The league will give the suspension that Kassian should have got at the first opportunity, with the easy targets being someone like Tkachuk, Looch (I will believe that he would smoke an Oiler or a Bruin when I see it), Rinaldo, or maybe even Kassian himself... If the Oil were stupid and started to target someone like Gaudreau, then send in Rinaldo to take out McD... Either way, I have a feeling that in one game in the not too distant future, all heck is going to break loose on the ice with a number of scraps going on... But at this point, the Flames have to play it smart and go for the win, and try to keep penalties even, or even better let the Oil be the ones that put themselves at a disadvantage by spending more time in the box... I'm sure they already know it, but every Flame on the ice is going to have to watch for the attempt at the big hit... If it's Kassian, just low bridge him at the last second and watch him drive his own head through the boards... He's that stupid, it's doable, and the opportunity will present itself... Then Ras can look at everyone on their bench and give his trademarked BOOM...
  9. I'll do one for tonight's game against the Leafs...
  10. All I do is copy the URL at the top of the Youtube page (that URL is different than what you posted here), then paste it here in a post, and then click Submit Reply... Hope that helps you out...
  11. A few thoughts... - Who it was that got hit and then went apeSatoshi has to be considered... Kassian... He has been rejuvenating his career by skating around always looking to make the big hit, and if it is blindside hit, he considers that a bonus... Kassian has been one of the NHL's most predatory players throughout the entire time he has been in the league... He currently likes to point out that he has obtained elite status by scoring 13 goals. well a sack of potatoes could score a goal playing with Mcdavid., McD would just bank it in off the sack... Case in Point, Chiasson, he had 22 goals last year, double what he had during his previous best seasons, now Chiasson is on the 4th line and has 6 goals... Further proof of the theory... James Sqeal... - When it comes to the McMedia and the Oils fans talking about lack of accountability due to Tkachuk not dropping his gloves , it's just double standard bullSatoshi... When McDavid crosschecked Tkachuk in the face after the whistle two seasons ago after a play McD wasn't even involved in, he didn't drop the gloves after he did it... How about McD with a crosscheck to the numbers and bouncing Tkachuk's head off the boards right after Tkachuk hit Kassian last game?... Same thing last game when McDavid kicked Backlund in the nutz with his skate after the whistle with 28 seconds left in the PP, and 7:02 minutes left in the 3rd...... McDavid has made a real habit of douchebag moves after the whistle... Cant be preaching about living and dying by the sword and not do it yourself without being a hypocrite... Maybe they are the ones that should change 97's jersey to McTurtle unless he wants to start dropping his McGloves... - The refs once again not being capable of doing their job... A double minor for roughing... Seriously?... But I suppose that we have to give them a little bit of credit for the afterthought add in during the commercial break for the 10 minute misconduct ...... and then we have to wonder what took so long to get in there while Kassian tried to cave in Tkachuk's head... That happens to a different player, and maybe it ends their career... - Player Safety and the dartboard they use for handing out suspensions... Lucic gets 2 games for one punch... Then Kassian gets 2 games for what he did... Obviously they must equate what Kassian did to be an equal violation., as they doled out the same punishment...
  12. For a situation like this it can't be just any old ordinary cowbell... We need some serious cowbell...
  13. Getting out shot 17 - 7 in one period is pretty bad... C'mon Flames, wakey wakey...
  14. That tells us that according to the league they equate what Kassian did to what Lucic got 2 games for... As usual, player safety has their heads firmly planted up their azzez...
  15. There are times when I wonder if a couple of our guys sometimes forget that there is a D zone that needs to be cleared...
  16. Le Tricolore doit perdre ce soir! Parce qu'ils craignent!
