he had the perspective of being next to the ice, there was no doubt in his mind.... or mine. (He likes Alfredsson, BTW) And yes, Alfy is that kind of player. The others said the same thing, I mean, c'mopn, this isn't the rookie zone where an errant shot could be excused. Alfhole was was under no pressure, took his time, adjusted his aim and zapped him.
BTW, Neidermayer is supposedly playing with a sore leg... perhaps it was just coincidence, with all that space out there... that the captain of the opposing team trys to hit it with a slap shot. Uh huh. Gpot a replay on now, sportsnet, see his change direction in the wind up... looks much better on the television... and his intent is clear.
