Are the Sens a dirty team?
Mon, May 14, 2007

Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said this week that Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson should have been suspended for a hit from behind on defenceman Henrik Tallinder in overtime of Game 2 of the NHL Eastern Conference final.

Alfredsson said he hadn't seen the replay but felt that "it didn't feel like a hit from behind."

Alfie's hit has Sabres steamed

Sens aren't a dirty team. They dominated Buffalo, fair and square. The Sabres are just making up excuses for their bad performance. The Sens will win the Cup, without having to play dirty, like the Hurricanes.

Go Leafs Go!

Tim, you are hopeless. If you don't understand team needs toughness in playoff, then you may just need a hit from behind to knock some sense out of you. Ottawa is the hungrier and grittier team, period.

The Sens are dirty, and whiners, this is the team whose coach complained to the NHL about the cheap shots they were taking while they were dishing out their own - they have Chris Neil, that says it all. Get off the "Canada's Team" bandwagon and see Sens hockey for what it really is, just like any other team they'll pull anything they can get away with. As I've said before, no Sens fans are going to get any respect from real hockey fans if you don't stop comparing the Sens to the Leafs! No patience with bandwagon jumpers who when the Sens have a losing season or two in a few years, are going to drop them and then complain they're dirty-playing whiners...

Are these idiots SERIOUS? Alfie's hit was NOT from behind...sideways at best as Tallinder turned at the last second.

And the hit had no bearing on a scoring chance.

On the other hand, the FROM BEHIND hit on Kelly led directly to Briere's tying goal.

Alfie hits Tucker from behind...Tucker out for a game...Tucker lowbridges Peca....gone for 4 months and who is the goon?

The Sens as a team can be classified as a dirty team if you take your blinders off (Sens fans) or if you know anything about hockey. They have a classic goon in Neil (nuff said). And then we get to Alfredsson. I have seen this guy hit way too many people from behind into the boards. Yes, he has some skill (see his stats), but he is CLEARLY a very DIRTY player. I just hope he doesn't kill someone one of these days. And this is the Captain of the team? Sheesh!

The Leafs are a dirtier team than the Sens will ever be, even if you take Tucker out of the equation. But, unlike the Leafs, the Sens have real talent and can also play hockey, which is why they're one win away from the finals and the Leafs are on the golf course.

I hope they spend all summer rubbing your noses in it, Leaf-lovers.

Show me how many hits from behind there are in the season, and how many of those resulted in a suspension. I suppose when the other teams are getting creamed (PIT, NJD, BUF) the only conclusion must be they are dirty, eh?

All you leafs fans stop the crying and go back to the golf course where you belong. The SENS are on their way to the Stanley Cup finals and nobody can stop them. Anyone who knows anything about hockey would never have guessed that Ottawa would be up 3-0...this series has been totally dominated by Ottawa. Buffalo can now hit the pool where Roy, Vanek and Maxine can continue to work on there diving skills and cry like Lindy Ruff.

Go SENS Go
