Kvasha will not stand for anyone threatning his MVP status; I say he whacks him

At least I got to kick his butt before he left the Island.

I've heard that in Russia, he can actually kill an opposing player to change the momentum of the game. It's only a matter of time before Hollweg and Orr wind up on a Russian team too, that would one He11 of a rematch.
As for Kvasha, he's not friends with nolan is he?

You people are so freaking clueless. Chris Simon was traded away from the Islanders this season. So Bruce, Dummy from Montvale, and Ebeneezer must be retarded. Also Colton Orr, good job in the playoffs,,,oh wait,,you weren't there were you? Did you even dress at all? Why are these boneheads in the NHL if they are not good enough to help their team in the playoffs? Great league we have here.

"...when he slewfooted Penguins agitator Jarkko Ruutu and stomped on Ruutu's foot with his skate. "

Can someone explain what "slewfooted" is?

What are you doing Simon? No need to travel half way across the globe to play in a half empty concrete dump in front of a handful of retards who don't know a Gordie Howe hat trick from a half empty vodka bottle. You could have re-upped with that minor league outfit in the garden spot of the world, Uniondale LI! sheesh...

When one player comes from behind, and uses his leg or foot to push the other player's leg or skate forward and thus causing them to fall backwards.

A cowardous move, and obviously very dangerous act.

I'm waiting for the Rag fans to explain this one. They love to place blame on none existant slew-footing calls.....LOL!!

I am an Islanders fan (as tough as it is) and slew-footing is pathetic.

Malkin DID slew-foot at least twice during the series. He is WAYYY avove that kind of play. Unfortunatly, players see it and what goes around WILL come around. I am a fan of Malkin, but that is about as nessesary for him as wearing a blindfold on the ice.

Hope he survives what comes to him.

miNoR LeAGuES...the word RANGERS is in there too.

How about Kolzig coming in to back up DP? DP seems to do better with a veteran back up.
