Sharks Players Hypocritically Complained That The Ice Was Too Wet For Their Pregame Skate In Edmonton
Previously in childish antics meant to mess with the opponent:
And the response:
Really? Really, San Jose? I'm all for teams going back-and-forth fucking with each other's gameday preparation, but you can't deny your opponent literally the only two things that they need to hold an effective practice - electricity and nets - and then whine when they clap back with excessive zamboni'ing.
A seven game series is a mental and physical battle, and I must say that the Oilers currently have the edge. I suppose you probably could have made that conclusion on your own after watching them almost score the game-winning overtime goal about 37 times before they actually did score the game winning overtime goal that brought the Sharks to the brink of elimination. However, if I were kept up to date on the state of the gamesmanship between the teams then I obviously would have predicted an Edmonton victory last night.
How could I not? The veteran laden team that initiated this prank war of sorts assumed the role of the younger brother by throwing the first stone and immediately running to hide behind mommy (the media) when the young, inexperienced kids tried to retaliate? Pathetic, just pathetic. It's one thing for beat reporters to pick up on the fact that the team they cover is skating around in the dark with nothing to shoot at, but it's far more egregious to prematurely board the excuse train when you still have business to take care of prior to heading home. Dry those eyes Sharks fans, because your team didn't slip up because the ice was "too wet". They slipped up because they started something they couldn't handle finishing. Sounds a lot like their actual performance last night if you ask me.
