Almost fell outta the chair when I saw that.

Welcome back, Tawmiss!

Shawn Thornton?  Why, the last time I saw him he was cleaning Red Will Danaher's clock all over Innisfree.

/Quiet, man.

I'm not the greatest hockey fan in the world, but weren't the four guys in the white jersey supposed to take the puck from the guy in the black jersey? Or, you know, just knock him on his butt? Trip him and get a two-minute rest? Distract him with delicious sandwiches? Anything? Is the ninth minute of the third period the Secret No-Touching Minute or something?

Came for Quiet Man reference, left satisfied. Thanks!

Thomas might need some aloe for that sunburn on the back of his neck.

It's Shawn Thornton! What are the odds he's gonna make it all the way to the net without just losing the puck?

The wife and I were laughing our asses off... as was Thornton and Paille from the looks of it. Beautiful goal by Thornton. Glad to have him back in the line up.

Loved when the crowd started jeering Thomas, as well.

Loved when he challenged to Capt. of Florida to have a go after he slashed at Thornton's stick.

He just gave him the "Let's go" nod, and dropped the gloves, and in response the Capt. promptly hid behind the ref.

He also threw two sucker punches on Berg

True, but that's no excuse for that kind of marshmallow defense.  Anyway, nice goal and a great effort to get it.  Also here's Kadris latest dangle from last night.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaZVqEMQ5mc

Berg's the Capt.? Saw Thornton shove him. Didn't see any sucker punches.

Actually it looks like he did just lose it at one point, but no one else went and got it.   "Oh it's still there?  Well I'll just put it in the net then"
 
2014-01-29 11:55:14 AM  
If you're wondering what happened to the old Thomas, watch toward the end when he slashes Soderberg (and rightfully).  Oh, THERE he is!

Thornton has his moments where he can do things like that.

Was it last year or the year before where he undressed a goalie on a penalty shot?
 
2014-01-29 12:11:12 PM  
I heard he killed a man in the ring once.

Last year, I think... great little move he made on that one, too.

They should start calling him, "Twinkle Toes". : )

Shawn Thornton has cement hands. You don't expect him to dangle like that.

/not to be confused with Joe Thornton
//who plays for the Sharks
///and who probably can't do that either

Kind of poetic justice that Thomas gave up a six-pack during the SOTU speech.

I heard he retired to Ireland.

Lol, exactly how many times did you get asked for pictures that game anyway?
 
2014-01-29 01:17:59 PM  
Pretty weak goal. I was expecting him to undress the D at the blue and keep going. Not hit the corner and lumber out. Oh well, fark Thomas at any rate.

Oh Christ, in the concourse you'd think I was some sort of celeb with all the people asking for pictures.

It was fun, but the lack of a good, clear shot on the broadcast was disappointing.

Have to believe that was intentional on the TV Director's part. As soon as "politics", even in the form of a stupid meme, show up, it's off.

I actually had to break out the Google to figure out why folks were making Quiet Man references the last time we were discussing Shawn Thornton (suspension thread).

In my defense, it's kind of a crap movie.

Now Darby O'Gill and The Little People... There's a good flick. The wife and I spent a few years living in Dublin during the '90s and it cracked me up that Darby O'Gill was Christmas staple on RTE. It's like their It's a Wonderful Life. : )

Yes, that was Ondrej Pavelec, which I think doesn't count as an NHL goaltender.

Moves don't lie, Sir.

It's like that old saying, "if you can make it to the big leagues, you might not be the best player in the world, but you made it to the league".

The guy won two cups with two different teams, just because everyone views him as some brickhead like John Scott, that's horseshiat. He can actually skate and move. He's not some un-thawed neanderthal out there.

Not to mention he's not notorious for cheap shiat, (leave the Orpik crap off the ledger) the guy has been a 1/64th of a scumbag that Matt Cooke was.

And everyone parades the fact that Cooke is "not a douchebag anymore".

Well, try not being a douchebag to begin with.

I'm not taking away from the shot, it was good. I think Thornton brings a lot more to the team than just a pair of fists.

I'm simply pointing out the suck that is Ondrej Pavelec.
