It should be repeated...."Mercendise"
You can see where the fans get it from, simply read John Stevens' post-game comments pertaining to the penalties called in OT...
"The one on Giroux is the one I would rather not see him do. There's no danger in that play. If he does that and a guy doesn't let go of his stick, there's probably no call."
WTF does this even mean exactly? Is he saying that if Kunitz dropped his stick it would not have broken in half after being hacked in two by Giroux? So when players are going to be slashed by a Flyer goon, they should just drop their sticks so they don't break in two?
"Mike Knuble was trying to get position in front the net," Flyers coach John Stevens said. "I don't think I've ever seen Mike Knuble make a retaliatory penalty. He was fighting for position in front of the net"
After hearing this one, I do have to wonder if Stevens is on drugs. Fighting for position? Orpik was standing in front of Knuble with his back towards him and he straight up cross-checked him in the back. Knuble had no reason to cross-check him. Once again, stupid penalty taken on Philly's part. It has been the story of this series up to this point.
I guess Stevens forgot about the play where dopey Hartnell threw his stick at Sykora when we were coming down on a 3 on 2 and Skyora was in mid-wind up? Or how about when Cooke took a stick to the face in front of the whole world with the blood to prove it during game one? Both of those obvious calls went ignored.
Stevens is delusional and so are Philly fans. Stop taking dumb penalties and you won't have to worry about killing penalties in OT. Try it. It works. Look at us. Here's another tip....the days of goon hockey are over, move on. If you don't like it, try a new profession. How about UFC?
