Sarah. Go tell Dustin that we here in the Antsmarching.org NHL Thread do not approve of his hit. He'll surely turn his game around then.

Now that the ultimately disappointing Pirates season is over, on to what I'm sure will be another ultimately disappointing Penguins season. :lol Go Pens!

i can't remember the last time i was this unenthused for a Penguins season

blah blah Kessel, blah blah talented blue line....yawn

Pens will win enough to get into the playoffs and get completely outclassed by someone in April...easiest season to predict in all of sports

Feeling pretty good about the Rangers this year. I think if the team stays healthy there will be a good product on the ice every night! Can't ask for much more than that at this point in the season.

Yeah, this. He was just trying to stop him at the blue line, which is what he should do. I don't know if he thought Couture was going to try and get around him so he reacted kinda weird or something, but yeah it's really awkward how he goes in with his head when he could have pivoted and got him with the shoulder.

I don't think there will be additional discipline.

Leafs lose game 1! Hurray! Only 81 more defeats to go for Auston Matthews! Since they are the Leafs I can almost guarantee they will fucking it up and win a bunch of games to ruin their chances. Dicks.

i have a question regarding replay.

last night the refs didn't call the rangers offside on a play.
the hawks stole possession, broke out, and score on a 2v1.
could the rangers have challenged the offside call, causing an possible infraction, to prevent a goal scored by the Hawks?

It looks worse than it was, at least what it was intended. Not sure what he was doing but I'm guessing his aim was off and was trying for the shoulder, or as you said, thought Couture was going to move.

He is trying to have a statement year, he just needs to be a little smarter. Throwing out all homer bias aside; he is not a traditional dirty player. He plays the hard hitting game. He skirts the line and sometimes miscalculates. I admit he has gotten away with a few hits. Being the top hitter is going to raise some questionable hits. He gets under the skin of players, it is his role. It works on the opposing fans, too.

I think the thing that saves him time and time again is there was no intent there.

On the other hand, Luccic's hit on Couture last night may have better reason for a chit chat with player safety. Recieved a match penalty.

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Some people were saying last night that Luccic did that to hopefully take some heat off of Brown's hit. I actually think it was someone on NBC Sports. :lol:lol No, that's Luccic being Luccic right there.

I don't think so. From what I understand, while offsides is challengeable, it can only be used to challenge the entry by the scoring team that comes directly before scoring the goal.

The Leafs really have a gift for turning even hopeful situations into a nice, tidy, stinky pile of poo. It's almost an art form at this point.

Hawks got screwed on something questionable too. Kane scored the tying goal with a minute left but it was called off because Lundqvist said he heard a whistle.....

It wasn't because Lundqvist thought heard a whistle..the ref blew the whistle because he lost sight of the puck.

interesting.
i dont know the answer. i know that if the puck deflects up into the netting undetected they can go back and review that at the next stoppage no matter how long gameplay continues until then. and if the next stoppage is a goal they can take it off the board.

it happened in a CBJ Bruins game last year, the Bruins announcers were beside themselves that it didn't end up getting reviewed.

Agreed. Really sucks for the Hawks in that instance, but we've all been there with our team.

Also, for the record, I don't have much of a problem with the Dustin Brown incident last night. Looked like an awkward indecisive check to me, certainly nothing intentional or malicious.

Only situations where coach's challenge can be utilized are missed offsides that result in goals or goalie interference calls either way (negating a goal that is scored due to missed interference call or awarding of a goal that is disallowed due to incorrectly called interference)

I was happy for Lundqvist that he was able to be in the building for a championship banner raised before his career is over.

It sounds like Halak won't be ready to start the season. Let the Thomas Greiss era begin. Ugh.

Yes, I certainly agree regarding the type of player Dustin is. There's a difference between "physical" and "dirty", and while the dividing line between the two can get blurry in some situations, I think it's clear that Dustin doesn't do it maliciously. It happened, thankfully Couture is all right, and we can all carry on.

And yeah, we really should be talking about Couture laying out Lucic. That was a text book hip check right there. Absolutely gorgeous. Low (but not too low), fairly stationary, and effectively separated opponent from the puck while not being dangerous.

Lucic's response? Like you said, Lucic being Lucic. :lol
