    I like how Gallant announced last night Carrier was day to day and he's right back in the lineup tonight. Maybe he meant "day...today."

    2 minutes at worst. No different than an unintentional high stick.

    I don't think replay officials should be able to look at slow mo for determining if someone took a run at someone. Same goes for icing. If you can't tell at game speed, it's not worth calling.

    He is extremely illogical. Don't waste your time

    That worked out just as well as I'd hoped.




    Still cannot agree with the no evidence thing, though.

    So are they going to discipline the refs that didn't even think it was a penalty?

    yeah i mean, i think doughty deserved a big fine or a game for this hit but that's my biggest problem, that there's no visible accountability for officiating

    be it offsides or missed penalties, it genuinely seems like it makes no difference whether they blow a call or not

    Drew's response was actually pretty eloquent for him.



    He explains the way he saw it as Carrier shifting his weight off his right foot to cut back into the middle opening up at the shoulder leaving himself vulnerable. I think that's as good a defense as anything.

    He also talks about how Carrier said he got his shoulder while he was there on the bench, and you can see the feed when they come back from commercial, he's tapping his own shoulder.

    Still utter ****ing horse **** given the other similar incidents didn't even get a second look.

    This suspension makes 0 sense. Big Buff had a hit on Erickson Ek that was way dirtier than this hit, and he doesn't even get a talking to. Not to mention Wilson and Johansen. Where is the consistancy??

    it doesn't matter, he made contact with the head.

    That's why he only got 1 game and not 3-5.

    The NHL in 2018 is like this, any hit directly to the head will result in a suspension, even if the player is not injured.


    You are correct about one thing, and that is consistency.

    And his head wasn't. So what's your point?

    Carrier's head was clearly the main point of contact in this hit. That doesn't mean Doughty did it intentionally. And "main point of contact" is not the same as "initial point of contact"--I'm sure Doughty intended the check to be to Carrier's shoulder/side.

    Unfortunately the result was Doughty's check glanced off Carrier's shoulder and ended up making significant contact to Carrier's head.

    all i'll say is the league picked a pretty convenient time to get tough on this.

    We'll see how consistent they are.

    Hit definitely would deserve a game or two in the regular season. But if they are keeping the same standards from the regular season into the playoffs, they’ve gotta be more consistent.

    Watching Doughty whine is fun though.

    The problem is the players can be fined for speaking out if the NHL deems it inappropriate. That's probably a main reason why it seems they are not concerned. I suspect they take to their union rep and up the chain.

    Yes. To see a guy get suspended but then find out there wasn’t even a penalty called initially... bizarre. Maybe a four minute or five minute penalty would have quashed this immediately. That’s what the hit was. Borderline. Instead the league office has to rule on everything. And they can’t rule: double minor. They have to either suspend or do nothing (fines are nothing).
