Ryan Reaves Responds To David Perron’s “Whining”

(Photo Credit: SinBin.vegas Photographer Brandon Andreasen)

Former Golden Knight David Perron didn’t hold back on Saturday after the Blues loss in overtime. Perron made some scathing remarks about Vegas’ physicality, suggesting they stepped over the line.

You don’t like to see some of that extra stuff they do. One to our captain, I thought that was bullshit to be honest with you. That’s how I see it… Now we know what to expect. We’ve played them enough already. I see a lot of games of them. I really appreciate a lot of the stuff they do. I like their coaches, the organization, everything. But I didn’t like that (stuff on Alex Pietrangelo). -David Perron, Blues forward

Perron was clearly upset with some of the after whistle scrums, which in his eyes, were created by Vegas. One in particular involving Ryan Reaves and St. Louis captain Alex Pietrangelo.

Everybody saw what happened. I didn’t even start it. I just stopped in front of the net Petro (Alex Pietrangelo) tried to move me. He’s not going to move me. -Ryan Reaves

By now, most of us understand and appreciate Reaves’ role. If a player wants to get face-to-face, no matter who it is, #75 isn’t backing down. Pietrangelo happens to be an important player for St. Louis which is why Perron took umbrage. To Reaves, an opponent is just another opponent.

Hats off to Petro (Pietrangelo) for standing in there. You look at that situation, Petro stands up and tries to get to get me from out in front of the net.-Reaves

Pietrangelo got nicked up during his scrum with Reaves. On Monday, he sounded off.

I was just trying to take care of business. He was standing in front of our goalie. But I’ll tell you: It’s the first time I’ve ever been scratched in the eye before… I’m OK with getting into a scrum, but I’m not too fond of being scratched. Maybe that’s his new way, I don’t know. -Alex Pietrangelo, Blues defenseman

 

While the Blues players were publicly ticked off, Reaves pointed out their coach Craig Berube didn’t see any problem with how he played.

I don’t know why he’s whining. Even their coach said that’s hockey, that’s what I do. I don’t know why a scrum like that would get him so whiny after a game.- Reaves

Berube wasn’t surprised or upset with Reaves’ physical nature. He was more frustrated that his team couldn’t match it.

It’s the game, it’s hockey sometimes. (Reaves) plays a hard game. He’s gonna do things like that sometimes, I guess. I don’t know what you want me to say. That’s part of his game and he tries to get guys off their game. He plays a heavy game. -Craig Berube, Blues coach

 

As Golden Knights fans remember from the 2017-18 season, Perron isn’t a saint. In fact, fans loved when he would pester other teams. His incident with Max Pacioretty was a great example of how Perron can be an agitator.

That’s just Perry being Perry. Patcho (Pacioretty) has him and he’s grabbing his leg in a turtle shell on the ice. It doesn’t surprise me, that’s just how he is. He should take a page out of his captain’s book.-Reaves

Being a pest can be effective, but that doesn’t mean it has to be respected.

    Perron was trying to hump Pacioretty’s leg, but he wants to cry about Reavo playing like a big, strong man? Snowflake!

    • Fred65

      It’s OK to be a goon ( which is Reaves role)but there is a code which means you must have respect for the game and your opponent. Reaves disrespect the game and the role his predocessors played.

  2. Mike G

    I will always have much love/respect for Perron/Neal/Haula, guys that helped give this team the misfit identity in our magical first year. I hate playing against old teammates when stuff happens in the heat of battle. Perron has said nothing but positive things about the organization since he left. I wish him only the best and I’m happy to see he’s doing so well the Blues

    • I will always have much love/respect for Perron/Neal/Haula,>>>Perron was and remains a piece of shit. He didn’t want to come to vegas, he didn’t want to stay here. It’s pretty obvious. The other two were leaders. Neal was de facto leader of team, although he said what he felt most of the time. Haula didn’t want to leave either. I would take those two back any time. Forgot Perron, he also wussed out in the finals when he could have played and helped the team. He is and always will be a LOSER.

      • steve k

        he won a cup

        • Ajax

          Yep.

          Love VGK, love Reavo

          But I like my Blues and Perron more.

          No need to scratch out eyes Reavo. Keep it clean. I always admired how you laughed off guys before you pounded them. Leave the scratching elsewhere.

      • Tru Blu

        Pretty smart of Perron to leave Vegas for the Blues and win the Cup. Winner.
        Do you know much about hockey?

    • Pamela Scherer

      Sir, you are a gentleman and a scholar.

  3. Lara

    Craig Berube was the Reaves of the Flyers back in the day, so I appreciate him not being hypocritical about this subject. I was a Flyers fan during that era, and I still can’t believe Berube is a head coach now, never mind a Cup-winning one.

  4. Tim Floyd

    Only problem I have with Ryan Reaves /petrangelo incident is the shoving the head into the ice. In these days of concussions it just shows disrespect and and an ignorance of karma. Reaves wouldn’t want anyone shoving his head into ice.

    • John Doe

      He pushed his head into the ice, he didn’t bash it into the ice, concussion, really? As far as “Reaves wouldn’t want anyone shoving his head into the ice.”, players do a lot of things they wouldn’t want done to themselves. Should no one throw a check because they don’t want to be checked? It happens, it’s part of the game. This isn’t the first time a player has head his head shoved into the ice, quit being a little Perron about it.

      • Tim Floyd

        1st I did not say bash, 2nd players don’t mind being checked , and 3rd , why can’t you have a conversation without throwing insults? Don’t bother responding to that question because I know the answer John doe as if that is your real name.

  5. Nunya

    I thought fans crying about physicality were the problem. Should have realized it was the last 2 generations pu**y snowflakes that were ruining hockey. We forget that those generations produced players; not just fans. Yikes. Blues players have always been pathetic though. At least this last 2 decades.

  6. the interference on Glass isn’t even mentioned here, it is on top of the list

  7. BleedBlueforLife

    Vegas got lucky to win that game. The Blues gave up too soon and it bit us in the a$$. Reaves had a cheapshot at the end of the altercation when he put petros head into the ice. Thats my only concern. Hockey is physical, more so than any other pro sport….imo. Physicality is expected

    Perron won a Cup the year after leaving Vegas. Couldn’t be farther from a loser. He’s also leading the west leading Blues in goals and points right now.

  10. DOC Williams

    A bunch to do … about NOTHING!!!!!! Never was much of a Perron fan even when he was here. I wouldn’t call him a loser though. He can score goals … but … I WOULD call him a arrogant prick! 🙂 “THE Turtle”, his new nickname!

  11. Don Schmidt

    Message to the “the hockey god”…….Perron is a loser? You might wanna check his right hand ring finger. It sports a 2019 Stanley Cup Championship ring. He played a major role. He is NOT a loser.

  12. Derek Mester

    You Vegas fans dont know shit about hockey.. so, as far as I’m concerned none of your moronic comments mean shit.. stick to gambling and strip clubs.. that goes for your dumb ass sports writers too

    • Grant Manzanita

      What you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber for reading it…..

  13. Ajax

    Yep.

    Love VGK, love Reavo

    But I like my Blues and Perron more.

    No need to scratch out eyes Reavo. Keep it clean. I always admired how you laughed off guys before you pounded them. Leave the scratching elsewhere.

    You know, I have respect for haula, Tatar, but I’m starting to lose alot of respect for David Perron and his big mouth. Buddy, that’s nice you won a cup, it only took the blues 50 years to get the job done. If perron thinks Reavo plays a dirty game, maybe the big mouth should step up and challenge Reaves, but we all know his special snowflake delicate ass won’t (he’s like TJ Oshie, hell run away from Reaves). Another one is Neal. I honestly wish Reaves would sock him in his stupid mouth. We took Neal when no one else wanted him, and all he does now is talk shit about VGK. Still waiting on Reaves to end Joe Thortons career this season if we play the San Jose Scumbags in the playoffs, hope he rips that stupid beard out of his face.

      You seem very butthurt at very many opponents. If it took St Louis 50 years, how long will it take Vegas? Maybe longer, you have no idea. Or maybe never, after football comes to town and carves off a big chunk of your hockey-lightweight can’t-even-skate plastic fanb.ase
