[QUOTE]ksp1957 ...you get the point ... duinne ....you just dont get it ....no I wont be happy but I know for sure that someone will get hurt tomorrow night ..why ??? So simple and so easy to understand that even a 6 years old child would understand .....Remember last year : Bruins ahead 3-0 in the series against the Flyers ...Krejci was flying on the ice ...result : Brad Richards decided that it was over for him and the Flyers went on an won the series Last week end against the Blues 1-1 in OT Bruins were coming strong and skating faster and faster ...result : Oshie decided to take Krejci out and the Blues won the game...ditto for Savard & Bergeron ....the word around the league is dont try to beat the Bruins at their own game ..just hurt when of their talented player and dont worry there wont be any retaliation ...what do you think the Pens game plan is for tomorrow : go after Bergeron or Seguin or even Marchand ......Geezzz what is it that you dont see it doesnt take an expert to understand that ! ! ! ! I hope I am wrong in this prediction believe me .... Stanley Cup to the BRUINS in 2011-2012-2013 (only if they start protecting their talented players)

Do you seriously think Mike Richards (not Brad) intended to dislocate Krejci's wrist? That was a clean, open-ice hit. It wasn't a head shot, it wasn't knee-to-knee. It had terrible consequences for Krejci, and I'm sure Richards wasn't unhappy with the result, but to proclaim that "Richards decided it was over for him" is sheer lunacy.
And neither did Oshie "decide to take Krejci out." Where do you get this stuff? It was, in the words of Peter Chiarelli, an incidental hit, with two players going for the puck, and Krejci getting the worst of it, mainly because 1. Oshie was better prepared for the collision; and 2. Krejci's head hit the dasher. http://nhlbruins.tumblr.com/
Chiarelli video interview at bottom of page.
Players hurting other players intentionally does happen (as Cooke showed), but to label any
hit on which a player is injured an attack that deserves retaliation is patently absurd.
PS: And if someone on the Penguins "goes after" Marchand, that should be good for a laugh. I've seen it happen in the AHL, and it's usually extremely amusing.
