No, Daniel got a 10 minute misconduct while Marchard got a big pat on the back from the league.

The Sedins are pussies. Anyone that gets punched in the face 6 or 7 times and doesn't retaliate in anyway is, and pussies don't win the Stanley Cup.

Bottom line they did not show up for game 7, agreed

However I see your anger living in a city whos hockey team can't win

, first of all that was bad reffing more than anything, you are suppose to get a penalty when you punch someone 6-7 times. So because a troll like marchand punches you, you suppose to go to the box with or without him by swinging back? this isn't the ufc. Look what Lapierre did to my boy Ryane Clowe, with his trolling ass shit, Clowe reacted in a way you would have loved. He got sent straight to the box and Lapierre rolled off with his now famous you mad face.

Retaliation won't help in an important series. Discipline does.

I'm sure it meant much more to you than the players who dedicated their whole lives to get to that point.

I think that some of the Canucks antics (Such as the finger biting incident) in the series didn't help matters with the referees. They kinda made the bed that they had to sleep in.

Being up 2-0 then up 3-2, coming home tied up at 3, in their minds it was ITB,

Even Christy and Gregor where planing the parade.

Radio free agent David Pratt should still be a Team player
By Greg Douglas, Vancouver Sun November 12, 2011

Hardly a day goes by that somebody doesn't ask me the question: "What happened to Pratt?" That would be David Pratt, the in-your-face sports broadcaster absent from our local airwaves for seven weeks since his con-tract expired at Team 1040 on Aug. 31.

Pratt hosted the station's key on-air slot from 2 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday for 10 years. It was billed as the Pratt & Taylor Show, but in reality, it was Pratt's full-time gig with Sportsnet's Don Taylor sitting in what was clearly the second chair.

It was the perfect "good guy, bad guy" setup. Pratt would draw the ire of listeners with his opinionated and often out-rageous rants while Taylor, wearing the white hat, would try to smooth things over.

Pratt relished the role.

It was a lucrative ride for both Pratt and Team 1040. Adver-tisers lined up to be part of it. As sports talk shows go, ratings went through the roof and Pratt basked in the limelight as his paycheques grew over the years.

Always the villain, he would take great delight in sharing with his listeners that he trav-elled to events by limousine, drank only the finest of whisky and enjoyed bachelorhood to the fullest. He worked hard and played hard, as though it would never end.

Pratt was hit with the first inkling something might be up when management at Team 1040 didn't show any great concern months before Pratt's contract expired on Aug. 31. It was almost as if both parties agreed they needed each other and things would be resolved in due time.

But a brash and confident Pratt rolled the dice demanding much more than management was prepared to meet and the 10-year partnership imploded. Sadly, neither party won. Love him or hate him, Pratt's presence on Team 1040 has been missed. And while Pratt figured he would be instantly scooped up by either Rogers Sportsnet or TSN, nothing has happened.

I know from personal conversations that the big britches Pratt was wearing three months ago have been dramatically taken in at the seams.

What I don't know is if management at Team 1040 would consider revisiting the situation. Not to have a star return to his dressing room door, but to take him back to host a one-or two-hour show in current time slots that could use some help.

With Thursday's announce-ment that the Canucks and Team 1040 (Bell Media) have extended their partnership with a new long-term radio rights deal through the 2016-17 NHL season, there is even more reason to suggest that Pratt be granted a mulligan.

Pratt can be annoying and offensive, yet somewhere in the mix there lies a unique and charming talent that has been missed on local radio these past three months.

You want a gold star for sharing that?. Maybe you should write Francesco a letter and demand a refund - after all, he writes the cheques.

There are people in this thread who have been fans longer than you've been alive. There are plenty of bandwagons to jump on if you want to associate yourself with a winner.

And pussies come to a message board and complain. Real men act, right?

Pratt was a reporter for TSN in the early 90s. He was never trim, but he's not the overgrown guy he is now. Like Vince Vaughn, he's had too many late nights I'm afraid.

I do miss David Pratt. The Team 1040's new schedule is so brutal. I love Barry McDonald with Scotty in the morning but him and Taylor together are brutal to listen to.

I dont even get their running gag of naming players team in the funny nasal voice. It's not even funny.

Taylor is on for like 4 minutes by the time I get off at work at 5pm before he signs off now.

Morning show is a constant flow of Province writers. Brutal to listen to. At least Pratt and Taylor had chemistry...especially when they talk about poker being a sport or not

Not even talking about his weight, he's just ugly. Then again, Tony Gallagher is on Sportsnet regularly, his old wrinkly skin and wispy combover... reminds me of the cryptkeeper.

I like Scottie and I miss Scottie and Ray together. I can't stand that Chapman guy that Scottie has to carry on the air. He's incredibly dull, not witty and can't fucking shutup about his love for football. I like how Ray is usually a guest at 7am, but it just ain't the same anymore.

Pratt love him or hate him had STRONG opinions and conducted some of the best interviews/ portions ive heard on the radio

however he obviously thought he was worth more than they did and imo they will never bow down to him and pick him back up imo

the new format is pretty wack, scotty in the morning is alright, but Sekeres & Price is fucking horrible

Price used to be all negative and he's toned it down a bit, but Sekeres is just a fucking pin-head goof, i cannot stand him

Also i'm getting fucking sick of the Tebow talk they do, it's pretty obvious that Sekeres is religous and him and price have gone on this hour long discussions about "god" and "Tebowing"

the next time it goes on for a long time, i'm gonna phone in and say "i'm sick of hearing talk about fairy tales all day and i'll be reporting this religious talk on public radio to the FCC"
