Unless you’re on another planet, you’ve seen Brooks Orpik’s dirty hit on Derek Stepan:
You know we’re not fans of the Penguins by any stretch. We like their players even less than we like their fans, which is truly remarkable in the BSP line of thinking. Fans are always worse than the players, unless the players are complete jackasses. Ahem. That little hit is the kind of thing they do, as we’ll see in coach Tortorella’s discussion of the event:
Spot on in my opinion. The Penguins are one of the most arrogant organizations in sports. They are also one of the whiniest, and for some reason, their position as League Favorite ensures a light punishment–if any–for Orpik. That’s dude’s been a dirty SOB for a long time and no one’s going to do anything about it.
