That's because Joe Thornton is an A$$clown. His antics with Henrik were just pathetic. Henrik acted like an adult while Thornton puts his finger in his face. The guy is a loser.


That was a pathetic thing to do to Henrik.

...but perhaps even more pathetic was Henrik's reaction to it. Not many "adults" that I know would act like that, in the face of being blatantly disrespected. Henrik acted like a COWARD! For Christ's sake, do something! You're really going to let a grown man disrespect you like that, so blatantly and publicly? He should've done it right back in Thornton's face. If a fight ensues, fight! Who cares? You're not going to get hurt. And it's Joe Thornton, not Ben Eager. Equal trade-off.

This'll probably get me flamed, I don't care. You can't let an opponent disrespect you like that. Sets a very bad precedent.

Come on King - Widen just said he loves you - can't you even acknowledge him?

I don't have a problem with how Henrik handled that situation. It's not really his instinct to haul off and coldcock someone -although if he had, I wouldn't have a problem with that either. He is after all, the captain, and the epitome of sportsmanlike - not sure if it's a great idea for him to be engaging in fights if he's not an adept fighter.
Thornton made an A$$CLOWN of himself (perfect description Canuck-a-nuck) - I'm not sure that pathetic performance was worthy of a manly response anyway, to be honest. The way Henrik responded pretty much kept it in perspective - an attention-seeking juvenile that was acting out.

Luongo to Edmonton for Eberle - hahaha!!!

Henrik looked worse. "Sportsmanlike" is shaking hands after a series, it's not letting the opponent humiliate you at center ice. It was disgusting to see Hank just sit back and let Thornton bully him like that.

It would be interesting to poll people and see if Henrik was "humiliated" or if Thornton humiliated himself - and I'd hardly call that "bullying" - it was more like an insignificant twit attempting to annoy someone. If Thornton were such a tough guy he could have done what a tough guy might do, which is challenge someone to a fight, not wave his sad little digit around.

You'd need to poll fans of other teams. Pretty obvious what the answer would be amongst these forums of completely non-biased individuals.

well, a lot of people would have liked to see henrik lose it and play at thornton's level. they can go kiss a monkey's ass and lick off the left-overs

henrik kept it cool, and hoped for a penalty - he was focused on winning the game. I don't have a problem with that. as long as he said what he needed to thornton and didn't back down (which I doubt he would fail to do, seriously... HOOYA)

If you think having a finger pointed in front of your face and not having done anything equates to being a coward, then you have some serious insecurity issues regarding toughness. You don't have to fight every time another man puts a finger in front of your face. In fact, almost nobody fights or tries to get back at someone when someone puts a finger in their face and it would be odd to fight or try to get even for such a petty thing. Rather, most people frown, hit the hand away and give them the stare as to let them know they are being immature and need to grow up - all things, which Henrik did.

It's not "tough" to do everything that is done to you back to someone else. It's petty and stupid to do things like what Thornton did and you have issues if you think you need to retaliate to a stupid little finger being waved in front of you. Heck, you probably want to fight me or get back at me for arguing and disrespecting you on the internet. Learn to let petty things go, man. You don't have to come out on top in everything - sometimes it's better to take the high way.

Do you honestly believe that you would get a "non-biased" opinion about any Canuck from a fan of say, Calgary, Edmonton, Minnesota or Colorado? How about Chicago or Boston?

Totally disagree. If you're out in public, yes, sure, you might hold back a bit. But this is a hockey game. They're on the ice. You can't allow someone to disrespect you like that. Henrik looked like the sad-sack puppy dog with his tail between his legs, submitting to the more dominant animal. I love Henrik, don't get me wrong, but you simply cannot let that happen, just like Daniel Sedin cannot allow Brad Marchand to speedbag him, out of the hope that they get a PP out of it. It is not worth it.

:rolleyes:

A real man would ignore such a petty display as that by Joe T. A real thug would have considered your course of action.

Henrik is much more valuable on the ice than in the penalty box.

It was a desperate attempt by Joe T...........and Henrik didn't bite.

That's just the thing. In Kings mind the right course of action is to do exactly what Thornton was wanting; get Henrik off his game and have him react. Taking Henrik off the ice would have been the best thing that could have happened to the sharks in that scenario and it's exactly what King seems to think should have happened. Shortsightedness at its finest.

Do you know who Joe Thornton is? He's pretty good. Arguably even more valuable to his team than Henrik is to his. This wouldn't be Ben Eager going to the penalty box with Henrik Sedin, it's Joe Thornton.

More support for my argument lies in the fact that 100% of you would tout Henrik's "fearlessness" and "leadership" had he have actually stood up for himself and engaged Thornton in a fight, like he should have.

Not much that I agree with you on but I do here. This isn't some school yard 'get along' exercise. It is establishing the mindset of being prepared to do what it takes to win. No one is suggesting that either Twin should be dropping the gloves. But neither should they stand and let another player pull that stunt. People were disgusted when Burrows bit Marchands finger but that was OK in my book. In Thorton's case I would give him the stick on the next shift (of course when the ref wasn't looking).

It is tough on the Twins because they haven't played hockey that way. It is only the last few years of their careers that they have had a serious shot at the CUP. This is new territory for them. A sign of their increased physical play was showing last season, particularly from Danny. Just prior to Keith's elbow Danny had laid a real nicce hit in the corner. It was more than a tap it was a solid hit.

Who won that game? Who won that series? Yeah, shoulda done something different there for sure.
