My vagina, it hurts
Oh look, the tables have turned. It’s now Lindy Ruff and the Sabres who are whining.
Both Ruff and lead-blower Ryan Miller are pissed that Mike Richards only got two minutes for his hit on Tim Connolly.
Tim’s not doing very good. I’ve watched it. I think it’s something the league definitely has to take a look at. It’s a lack of respect for another player on the ice, it’s from behind, it’s head first into the boards. That’s a tough play. We lost a good player.
Before we get any further, I’d just like to add one thing: If Mike Richards thinks we’re getting away with murder, I don’t know what he just got away with. Mass murder? [nice joke, asshole] Are we stepping it up a notch? Unbelievable. We lose a player for the rest of the game… that’s the kind of hit the league has been talking about, and it’s dangerous. They better seriously consider looking at that one. It’s unbelievable.
Here, I’m going to translate that for you:
Stop whining. Maybe stop blowing two and three goal leads, too (well, don’t).
Richards’ hit was dirty, but he was penalized for it. In the playoffs, you’re going to have to do much more than that to get suspended. He guided Connolly into the boards and Connolly ducked. The first thing you’re taught playing hockey is to never duck when going into the boards. As awful as it sounds, it was partially his own fault.
As for Miller, does he not look like Cole Hamels’ unfortunate twin? He has the general appearance of the Phillies' ace, only there's an oogly eye, a horrible new beard (unlike Cole’s goatee), a receding Jim Carrey side part, and an I used to squeal on the cool kids who copied my answers cadence which dwarfs any past whining we’ve seen from Hamels. Good Christ, Ryan. Man up.
You can watch Miller’s post game comments after the jump. Look at that little valley girl head shake at the 47 second mark. I’m fully endorsing the distribution of 3,000 tampons to the folks seated behind Miller’s net in warmups.
