    1. There is no chance Sutter turtled against Grabovski. He would have to turn in his Sutter card if he did such a thing. You need to post a replay of the full incident. Falling and going into turtle are not the same thing.

    2. Sutter wasn't even the guy that cross checked him. It was Jay Harrison. I wonder if he even knows that. It was weird that he attacked Sutter for some reason.

    3. Sutter is a classy player and probably wouldn't indulge Grabovski in any kind of "get back", type game next time out. The Canes picked up the two points and the game was over. No need for all that extra stuff after the final whistle.

    :laugh: Is there something to be made of Grabovski "looking forward to next Canes game"? I mean, what, exactly, would Sutter be fearing? That he'll be chirped at?

    That title is pretty misleading there was no turtling Sutter fell down.

    Turtle= Drop and cover your head

    Not fall while backing up while getting tackles by the refs.

    It wasn't Sutter that cross checked Grabovski and Sutter didn't even turtle...

    Nah he went right for Sutter after the game ended. Or at least that's what the camera angle on the Canes broadcast showed. Weird, as if there's anyone he should have gone after it's definitely Harrison.

    It wasn't a turtle, pretty quick takedown for Grabo though.

    He thought it was Sutter that did it. Poor guy gets attacked for no reason :laugh:

    Grabo probably realized after the game watching highlights.

    WTF was Grabo's problem anyway? Yeah, you got cross-checked, big deal. Weak shots like that happen all the time. Him laying on the ice for ~15 seconds didn't help his team any. When the refs didn't blow the whistle he seemed fine enough to get up and try to cause some problems after the whistle. Looked like a complete clown.

    I think your definition of turtling is a little off...


    Grabovski, KHL please.

    Grabovski 13 goals 14 assists 27 points > Skinner 9 goals 17 assists 26 points and everyone else not named Staal on the hurricanes...

    I always thought that Grabo may have been more upset that he was being pitchforked (puck was under or near him) when he was down and apparently hurt. No idea who that was though but it seems like it was the crosscheck. Meh. He was probably upset with it but with the added frustration of losing, that was the result. His English seems a lot better though.

    Nah, we're pretty happy with him right here, thanks.

    I think you are as confused as Grabovski. Sutter didn't turtle but Grabovski sure embellished the cross-check from Harrison. Then again they gave a Staal 2 mins for similar contact.

    That was Cole fishing for the puck. Interesting too that there's been no mention of Grabovski coming up high with his skate around Sutter's groin when he was getting up. It's hard to know but Sutter didn't seem to happy with Grabovski when they squared off and before Grabovksi initiated things.

    You know the Leafs are tied with the Oilers for 3rd worst record in the league, right?

    wow. amazing. a soon-to-be 27 year old is putting up better numbers than an 18 year old...

    We never said we're a scoring machine like the capitals. We're slowly rebuilding, winning games, and fighting to stay in the race for the 8th spot. Let's not compare franchises here, buddy.

    ( this is where you post how many cups the Leafs have won prior to 1970 in order to deflect the utter mess that is the Maple Leafs right now )

    hey, we did it last year in the second half of the season...

    anyway, i'm OK with the fact that we probably won't make the playoffs. It's widely expected among the fans.

    Not sure you know what that word means.

    And the Leafs are? Enjoy handing over a top 5 pick for the 2nd straight year.

    Getting blindsided by a guy he didn't even hit. Anyone who thinks this is turtling may need to go find the definition of that word.

    Initially. You did watch the game, right?

    But by your description, that's not even turtling. :shakehead
