(LM Otero/AP) Travel Deals Sam Carchidi, Inquirer Staff Writer Posted: Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 3:01 AM CHICAGO – The Flyers, of all teams, have committed a league-low 12 minor penalties, and they have averaged the NHL’s fewest penalty minutes per game (seven) in the first five games. It’s a small sample, but it is still eye-opening for a franchise that usually leads the NHL – or is near the top – in both categories. It’s been “way less taxing” on his penalty killers, said coach Craig Berube, whose team plays in Chicago on Tuesday night. “We’ve been good so far, and we have to continue to check properly, because when your sticks are in the air and you’re hooking and tripping and stuff, you’re going to get penalties. . . . Discipline-wise, with the physical play, it’s been good.” Berube was asked if he was a little surprised his team had the fewest penalties in the NHL.

There was little doubt that Richards was a skilled shooter and passer, but there were questions about his all-around play. Richards, 34, had been demoted or benched by the Rangers during each of the past two playoff seasons for his shortcomings on the defensive end. Still, general manager Stan Bowman brought him aboard and head coach Joel Quenneville welcomed him to the Blackhawks. Richards was situated as the No. 2 center for the majority of training camp, but during the final days of the preseason, he was replaced at center by edgy Andrew Shaw. Quenneville had seen Shaw play center for Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad at various points in the 2013-14 season, including for several games in the Stanley Cup playoffs, and he liked the combination. As the regular season loomed, he decided Shaw belonged between the explosive Kane and the decisive Saad. It was so good last year in a short amount of time, and it was right at the end of the year, Quenneville told Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times. It was almost like, Do I really want to break them up? Charles Cherney/Associated Press Through three games, that No. 2 line has been quite productive. Kane has one goal and two assists, while Shaw has two goals and one assist. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2233825-will-the-chicago-blackhawks-no-2-line-continue-to-produce-at-a-high-level

To them, Im trampling all over the Sacred Floor Logo, which is tantamount to pissing on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. To me, a paying customer has a right to voice his or her displeasure over the performance of a team at any point during the game. To them, thats a lack of fan support, met with a we dont come to your job and BOO YOU attitude in postgame interviews. To me, throwing your jersey on the ice can be one of the ultimate expressions of fan angst at best; or at worst, a really nasty prank from a Habs fan in Toronto. To them well, they fight for that logo and bleed for that logo and take pride in that logo and yadda yadda yadda. Or as James Reimer said, after another Leafs jersey hit the ice: To see a jersey on the ice like that and to see someone throw it, its too bad because obviously I get the message youre trying to send, but its something we have a great respect for and we fight hard for that logo, he said. Its too bad when somebody does that. But they bought the jersey so they can do what they want with it. Jersey tossing is the new chanting for your coach to be fired. Its something that gets on TV or immediately hits social media. It seems exclusive to Canada at the moment, mainly because the typical Canadian fan has more sweaters in their closet than Jos A. Bank has suits. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/what-we-learned–an-etiquette-guide-to-throwing-your-nhl-jersey-in-protest-143803121.html
