I was on Hockeybuzz.com today and Ian Esplen had posted his review of last night's game against the ducks. I know that some of you don't like hockeybuzz for some reason or another, but regardless of that, he mentioned in his review of Ballard's play at the bottom of the article:

"While Perry got the better of him, I'm guessing Perry knew he would have to jump Ballard early based on the two ass-kickings that Ballard has given him in the past."

http://www.hockeybuz...11#.UQS1ir80WSo

I was a little interested, so I looked up the other fights that Ballard and Perry had and it's true, ballard and perry had fought twice and Ballard really took it to him both times.

Edit: Here is the fight from the most recent ducks game, you can decide for yourself whether Perry jumped Ballard or not.

Perry's one of the biggest punks in the game.

He's always slashing guys or making dirty hits, and he has no ability to back it up.

Well that just makes Perry a pure coward. I never liked him ,even since his junior days. This further increases that feeling...

Yeah, pretty cowardly move of Perry to just attack Ballard without giving Ballard a chance to at least square off with him before the fight started.

I rather enjoyed watching Perry get trolled overall for the evening though. ::D

Perry is the classic over-privileged youngster who wants for nothing growing up, turned self-entitled holier than thou smug beotch adult.

He is a solid player but if he were on my team it wouldn't be long before I kicked his nuts up into his throat just to shut him up, and silence that persistent "but... i'm the victimmmmmmmm..." look on his face.

I'm sorry, but what?

The 50 goal scorer, Rocket Richard trophy winner, and Olympic Gold Medalist has no ability?

I get that he's a prick, but use some sense.

I'm not sure he means talent/scoring ability, but rather physical/fighting ability.

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

Don't forget about his Hart Trophy and winning the Cup with the Ducks in '07.

He's a great player but at times he can be cocky.

Ballard needs to do more of this. I didn't realize he was a fighter. Maybe Perry just makes Ballard's blood boil. Some people are like that.

Come to think of it, while Perry is often regarded today as one of the league's premier power forwards, i've never seen him 'hero up' like prime Iginla. All i remember is him delivering cheapshots.

But if Chris Pronger is a mentor, then what do you expect? In the meantime he has a cup, so meh.

Ballard's a strong player, even though he's not the best fighter.

It is surprising, however, that even though Perry is bigger than he is, Perry cannot damage a player who is smaller than he is.

He pulled that face right after the Edler hit on him. It was HILARIOUS. I laughed and laughed. He looked like a kid who was just told he can't have cookies for breakfast. Gold.

If Perry was on the Canucks I would probably love him, but since he's not I hate him lol. Just one of those guys.

Marchand on the other hand I would hate him regardless.

Loved John Shorthouse's comment:

Perry = "Biggest sore loser in the league" - coming from a class act like Shorty who rarely says a bad thing about anyone.

Getzlaf = the biggest disappearing act in the NHL.

Why Selanne or Koivu are not wearing the C is beyond me.

Perry got whooped two times and jumped Ballard two times, I guess it's his way of getting Ballard back.

I was disgusted that he was able to represent Canada in 2010.


So how do/did you feel about the following players:

Ruutu
Cooke
Torres
Lapierre
Burrows

I know you'll only hate the top 3 because the other two are "current" canucks but I would guess the rest of the league views them pretty much the same way (or worse) than you view Perry.

I watched that game on Centre Ice, with the local Anaheim play by play guy and Brian Hayward commentating. Some of the crap those two guys were spewing was beyond homerism, and they kept talking about Perry being picked on by the refs and cheap-shotted by Edler etc. I get that some fans enjoy homerish broadcasts but that guy is one of the worst I've ever heard.

"Perry to Vancouver" thread was designed to use Perry to bring in a different all-star.

We get Perry in a win deal, and get another superstar in a win deal, involving Perry. :)

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it
