[QUOTE]" I am sure this is my bias coming through, but I don't like how Max seems to put himself in the same sentence/class as Chara and Horton." Yeah, I'm with you. He's trying to use Horton to legitimize his own actions. A) Montreal's a pack of divers, so when one goes down like a sack of potatoes it's no big deal. Same with Vancouver. B) Gee Max, you were cleared the day after you guys lost the last game? Must have been a killer concussion. C) Let's just say, Max, that you don't know anything about anything when it comes to other people's concussions. Leave Horton alone, he doesn't need your help. And go visit with Savard for a day. D) So you're putting on weight? Excellent -- I'll look forward to you taking out some of the Bs bad boys next season.

A) Boston, of course, never dives, especially Tim Thomas lightly brushed while outside of the crease, or Brad Marchand...well...all the time.
B) Gee, Nathan, you flew 3,000 miles a few days after the talk of the town was "Will he ever be the same? Will he be back for training camp? Will he even be able to play again??" Must have been some concussion. (For the record, I can't see how anyone objective can claim that either guy embellished his injury).
C) Only Mark Recchi is qualified to make medical diagnoses and commentary on fellow players. He alone is allowed to comment on the extent of other players injuries (and he's so brilliant he can do so from 400 miles away without the benefit of examination). No other player has the expertise to make such statements.
D) Maybe Pacioretty can give a Bruins player a light shove next year, and said player can react like a Diva (like, say, Zdeno Chara in OT at the Bell Centre, a player who is usually above such shenanigans).
Get off your soapbox. You have the best team in the NHL. You have the Stanley Cup for Pete's sake, and you're concerned with a player from a team you beat in Round 1? Priorities and perspective, anyone?
