Cox on Hollweig….I Agree

Don’t say it often, but Cox is right on with repect to the village idiot:

“Let’s be clear. This oaf on skates doesn’t score goals, or set up plays, or generate a forecheck or even protect his teammates. Ever since he’s been in the league, he has been known as a player who does one of three things every time he’s on the ice:1) Takes about 25 strides and charges an opponent.2) Leaves his feet to hit an opponent.3) Hits opponents from behind.He’s a dangerous, dangerous hockey player, and for all the wrong reasons.”

Cox thinks Cliff should waive or suspend him ASAP and I agree.

He also thinks the league should really throw the book at him, and I agree.

Lastly, and somewhat impressively he thinks he doesn’t deserve to wear the uniform and I totally agree.

It’s beyond rediculous. I agree with everything you and ‘ol Cox has said regarding Hollweg. I watched that game tonight, we had almost total control outside of the goal early in the second. Then this clown goes and slams Petriangelo right into the boards head first. THERE WASN’T EVEN A PLAY THERE.

He cost the Leafs the game. Everybody on the bench knows it, RW and Fletcher have to know it.

I think Fletcher will have to bite the bullet here, call a spade a spade and just get rid of Hollweg and quick before we start getting painted as a dirty team. We’ve been down that road, we want to be hard working, not cheap shots.

I really hoped for more from this guy but even the stuff I read from Rangers fans after he was traded were exactly what we’ve been seeing from him.

Christ, I don’t think the guy even won a single fight in the pre-season.

Why on Earth keep him. Take a mulligan and drop his sorry ass down the waiver wire. We can do much better and deserve better than what he has brung so far.

Dump him….I don’t usually respond with knee jerk reactions but…The Hollweg Show is not new…he is a liability….dumb penalties, dangerous hits, starts and loses fights…useless. Think about other enforcers or agitators that we’ve had….Domi for example…yes, he took some bad penalties but…overall, did his job and rarely cost the team…started and won fights etc…

I didn’t like stuff like this last year from the Flyers, and I certainly don’t like it on the Leafs.

It’s disgusting.
