I know you jest but he didn't repeatedly sucker punch a guy, plus generally most hockey players do lack class in comparison to tennis players say...

Fair enough. My main point in posting was to ridicule Morris, not so much for his actions towards the Oilers, but for his thinking that the deflection should have been called a hand pass.



It definitely hit his hand, but it was an unintentional deflection so he probably had nothing to complain about

Not sure what's worse....going after an opposing player because you think the ref screwed up, or actually thinking that a deflection off a guys hand off a shot from the point is considered a hand pass???

I actually think Morris pissed at Yakupov for his celebration of the goal, and was trying to get to him. Now, let me clarify, i don't think it was so much his mild celebration on that game winner but more to do with all the uproar over Yakupov's "Fleuryesque" knee slide celebration from days prior. That went viral and i'm sure most players saw it and had an opinion on it. Even though the knee slide wasn't against his team, Morris is a veteran and one who prob didn't agree with Yak's over zealous celebration from a few nights prior. Just my 2 cents...



Try watching the video again; firstly there wasnt much of a celebration, secondly morris was upset before the "celebration" and was waiving his hand all over the place, so its pretty obious he thought it was a hand pass. The reason morris went beserk on whitney is cause whitney said something nasty to him, whitney admited it after the game. It had absolutely nothing to do with yakupov.

I can't wait until the next Oil vs. Yotes game. Either Hordichuck or Eager is going to be having some words to discuss with Morris.

He wasn't mad because he thought it was a hand pass, he was mad because now the prudish-style of players in the league (Morris) don't like when people are happy after a goal. He motioned for his team to come and join a celebration, and Morris didn't take to that. They might have thought it was a hand pass, or something random, but they sure weren't mad at Yak for that. Probably upset they can't get a deal done to save their sorely placed team.

pretty classless though

I agree - zero. And because it was inconsequential. If Morris connected with one of his blows, and happened to knock out Whitney, we would something to talk about.

erm, zero?
