Does this bother anyone else?

Getzlaf and Shaw get fined for a slur as they most certainly should have been.

But, the sum-bitches who hit ruhwedel and Wilson didn't even get a call on the ice and no hearing whatsover (probably won't in the case of the guy who hit wilson).

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
The NHL should be doing something but like I've said if the NHLPA doesn't step up to protect their players, I don't know what they are there for. Maybe they are talking behind the scenes but even if they are, it clearly isn't enough. My worry is that the PA doesn't want to go into too big of a thing because if their players start getting suspended for 20 games, that's a big chunk of salary gone and these ain't the Crosby's and Kane's that will be getting suspensions (although it's possible) but it's the 3rd and 4th liners who typically who don't make the 9mil a year. Not saying that should matter if you want to protect everyone but it has me wondering if that factors into it.

But, Tim, they aren't even calling it during the game! They call that ticky tacky penalty on Cullen yesterday but keep the whistles in their pockets when other hits happen.

Say what you will about Goodell (and I initially hated it when James Harrison was the target of his wrath) but the initiatives in the NFL to protect the head have been good things.

I was at my local watering hole when Ruhwedel got hit and got into a discussion with the guy next to me. I thought it should have been 4 minutes. He thought it was a clean hit.

He was like "taking away hitting changes the game". I'm sorry but that's a BS take (not yours, Tim, the doucher's at the bar). If you can't tell the difference between the head shot Ruhwedel took (and was bloodied by) and the shoulder check to the chest that Rust took in game 2 then you don't get it and never will.

Oh I'm with you. My comment on the PA wasn't just for suspensions, they could force the league on the ice too. I just think it's all connected. The PA doesn't want big suspensions for the reason I gave so it makes them soft on trying to get penalties called because they worry how it could escalate, causing players to lose income. There is a lot of assuming in there by me but since this headshot conversation has been going on for the better part of 7 years, at least heavily, and we still haven't seen a big change, I think that's a lot of evidence for my argument. Yeah the league could go in on it but if the players are acting "meh" about it then the league isn't gonna rush anything.

Isn't that what makes the NHL playoffs so great? Any team has a chance. Saying they don't deserve the cup after working through teams "better than them" kind of contradicts why people think the sport has one of the better playoffs entertainment wise.

OK I'm 100% agreeing with Ricky. Something ain't right. This is one of the reasons I love it. Sure I love the sport and all of that but not knowing who is gonna in a particular series makes it unbelievably entertaining. If you're an 8th seed in the NBA you go in knowing you are gone in a week maybe 10 days but here you have an 8th seed as a finalist. The Kings were 8 when they won the Cup in 2012, Oilers got to game 7 in 06, Ducks as a 7th seed in 03, Flyers as a 7th got to the Finals in 2010 and I'm sure I can find more. Hawks might have been the more talented team and have the better regular seasons, but they weren't the better team in that series and that's when it matters. You can ask Barbs and the Caps how much where you finish in the regular season matters.

EDIT: I'll add that I love that they are there and would love to see the Sens there too. I don't want to see the same teams in the finals or winning it over and over (unless of course it was my team) so having a team like the Preds there is great. It's great for the market and the fans.

Totally with the majority in here.

1. Go Preds! I am so happy for Nashville!

2. The Preds totally deserve to be where they are at. They have played fantastically all playoffs. Also, look past this one year. They have been close to taking the next step for the past 3-5 years. I thought they took a step back in the short term with the Suban/Webber trade, but I was wrong. That seems to have been the missing piece!

I hope they win the Cup now! It would be so awesome for that city. Imagine the parade for that win! So many celebs would be there.

Jamie (perhaps understandably) still a bit salty about the Hawks getting summarily destroyed by the Preds. :lol I think the Preds are a fun young team (Subban's occasional antics aside). I wonder if the Caps are thinking they should have hired Laviolette.

I would think the Habs are the team that are going to have regrets. They were supposed to be the short-term winners of that trade. They changed coaches and won the division, but in the end, they still fell flat in round 1 and got bounced by the Rangers. Meanwhile, the Preds flew under the radar until the postseason and are now cruising into the Stanley Cup Finals with P.K. Suban. If I am a Habs fan, I am pretty annoyed right now.

True. However, the Leafs and their fans are probably feeling pretty good about that team right now. They have everything to look forward to. The Habs on the other hand are watching their window shut. Price is getting older and the traded for Webber, who probably only has a few years left to make a big impact.

Also, as a Rangers fan, I have had to watch loads of key players make runs after leaving our team.

Off the top of my head:

Gaborik- Fans basically ran him out of NY. Beats us for the Cup with LA

Callahan- Captain of our team, beats us the next year in the ECF (Although this trade played a large role in us making the Finals that year).

Boyle- Didn't resign him, knocks us out in the ECF the next year.

Stralman- One of our best D-men, couldn't resign him, beats us in the ECF the next year.

Richards- We bought him out after the 2014 run, he won the Cup with the Hawks the next season.

Hagelin- We decided to sign Stepan instead of Hags, he knocked us out in the first round the very next year and went on to win the cup.

Brassard- We traded him to get younger, he knocked us out this year with the Sens and still has a chance at going to the Finals.

Future:

Cam Talbot: Former Rangers backup goalie who was fantastic for us when Hank was out, will probably win the Cup with Edmonton.

Who will it be next?! My guess, Dan Girardi or Derek Stepan.

:eiffeltower Wooo! I am so glad we can be the team that gets these players ready to win a Cup with someone else! Especially when we are nice enough to give them an easy round in the playoffs to win by sucking against their new teams!

You are correct, that is clouding my judgement. I should not have said they don't deserve the cup, if they somehow win it of course they deserve it after beating teams better than they are. I won't even get started on subban, he is dirty and loves the spotlight too much for my taste. Nashville is on a great run but they have gotten some very lucky breaks (and some questionable calls go their way) and have responded - I can't even say the questionable calls made the difference because the Ducks, Blues and Hawks are used to coping with those calls, Nashville is just playing very well. Something about the organization (not the players) annoys the hell out of me and THAT has nothing to do with them sweeping the Hawks because I have never been able to like anything about that damn team, they might as well be the Flyers - whom I somehow respect more despite their tormenting my Whalers!

That's usually how teams win championships.


The Cubs just played well all last season that's why they won the World Series.

Lots of scrappy play in front of the net there. I don't understand how there isn't something called there. Ottawa defense isn't even looking at the puck. They're just dropping on players.

Methot was sitting on Crosby. Ah well, Pens still playing very well. I feel like that second (technically third) goal is coming.

U can get elbowed in the face or tackle a guy and get nothing called, but fight for a puck legally gets a goal called back for goalie interference

They didn't exactly fail to show up tonight. They have about 45 shots and some high quality chances. Anderson just stood on his head.

The refs have their fingerprints all over that game

And I never blame the refs for games, but that was blatantly impacted by bad and missed calls

To expand on my thought process, game 7 can really go either way. So, I'm hopeful that they fucking show up and don't shit the bed. It was a comment not related to their performance tonight particularly

Yeah, that was a bad call IMO, looked good to me but this past few months I have decided that goalie interference is the most subjective call possible. Half the time I think it is good and am wrong and the other half I think it should be waved away and it stands. I think that Ducks/Preds game the other night had 3 called back and only one of the calls I agreed with.

Wow though, what a great game. Pittsburgh played a better game but did not cash in some chances they should have slammed home. I give Ottawa a lot of credit for bouncing back after getting killed Sunday and going down 1-0 tonight and coming back to win. Credit to Pittsburgh and Murray as well, they played solid despite their D men resembling a MASH recovery ward, carried a lot of the pace but just could not solve Anderson. Great game all around, hope game 7 is as much fun to watch. Lastly, holy damn that GWG was a bomb, not a damn thing ANY goalie could have done anything about.

Lcsulla 05-24-2017 12:19 AM

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
Honestly, watching that goal that got called back again - if Daley doesn't slash Anderson's pad that is probably a good goal, guessing that tipped the argument in Ottawa's favor.

Lol "slash"?

Good lord...loose puck, never physically impeded Anderson. Worst interference call I've seen maybe ever. Absolutely terrible.

Maybe if Crosby doesn't get tackled twice or a penalty gets called the Pens cash a few more in too.

Refs haven't been this bad in a while.

Any other game in any circumstance that does not get called back. Classic reffing the score/ series there.

Oh I agree completely, that was a bad call. My point was that once the play was blown dead and Pittsburgh was credited with the goal Daley slammed his stick into Anderson's pad and that may have been what straw that broke the camel's back so to speak.

Refs have been pretty inconsistent on those type of calls, it annoys me as a fan. I also agree Crosby was hit quite hard and quite often. A little consistency by the refs would be helpful. Last night Nick Richie got a game misconduct in the first period for boarding and was out for the rest of the game - in the second period Salomaki did the exact same thing to a Duck (forget which one) yet only got a two minute minor. Officiating has not been all that solid this postseason.

It was just exorbitantly inconsistent. I'll be fair and point out missed calls on both sides: They let a cross-check by Malkin go, and then they let whatever the fuck is going on in that video go. But then they call a ticky-tack chicken shit interference on Hainsey. Then that goaltender "interference."

Still, the Pens played well enough to win. Got a lot of quality chances. Tip of the cap to Mr. Anderson, who went into full Matrix Bullet-time mode stopping just about everything.

Didn't totally back read, but the Pens were probably good enough to win last night. I fully expect them to win game 7.

Preds must be enjoying watching the ECF on tv.

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
Regardless of who wins game 7, this is benefiting the Preds a lot. They can rest up. I still hope Sens for my wanting a new team to win it and with both of those teams you get it either way.

I'm not lacking confidence in their ability to win; I'm lacking confidence in things falling their way. As last night showed, 1-2 things favoring the opposition (goal called back, questionable penalties called, blatant penalties not called) can result in a loss...but I suppose that's hockey

Not that I want those things to happen and you want things called the right way but yeah it does happen. Not saying they shouldn't try to fix it but Pens have benefited from those types of things before and gotten hurt by it and the same goes for every other team. Pens against my Wings, too many men for a long time late in the first period of game 3 in 2009. Wings were up 2-1 and that would have put them on the PP, instead not called, Wings get a penalty and Pens tie it before intermission. Wings had plenty of chances to still win the series so I'm not but I'm guessing Pens fans don't want to go back and have it called right. And if last night's game was the other way around with Sens up 3-2 and Pens got the benefit of bad calls or non-calls, Pens fans wouldn't feel nearly as bad. Gotta keep things in perspective.

The Pens question NHL officials.
