    It was shoulder on shoulder. Remember that hit on Kulikov with a five minute major? That was pretty bad hit. No hearing. This was just a hockey play no foul.

    So just so we're clear, instead of the much talked about "fact" that Hutch screamed "**** off" at Maurice for getting pulled/pulling himself, instead he was really upset to be leaving the game cause the concussion spotter forced him out. So yeah the "terrible attitude" crap was unfounded and just based on people's biases rather than in reality.

    It looked a tad late. It wasn't dirty imo but Copper will get a fine cuz, well, it's Jets.

    Nobody on twitter is even talking about it. I think you're worrying over nothing

    Well, two of the goals looked like what Helle would save normally. But sure, at least no way to blame only Hutch in even those goals. The powerplay was absolutely putrid.

    Copp should have just given him a massive two handed slash to the back of the legs. No sispensio for that since it was apparently taken out of the rule book recently.

    A horrible thought struck me just yesterday, and I definitely hope I’m worrying for nothing. But what if the Jets having so much of injury problems has after all to do with the playing style and the coaching? The last two seasons have at least been disasters injury-wise. How is it with all the other seasons that Maurice has coached as a head coach? What kind of amounts of injuries his teams have had in average and compared to other teams in the league?

    Of course all this could very well be just bad luck, but would be still interesting to know a bit better about it.

    Too bad the concussion spotter didn't speak up sooner
    He was leaving gaping wide open net in those goals. He was off his game.

    Sure, they are terrific. No doubt. I think they should have thumped the Jets, given how short-handed the Jets were, on a back-to-back, and at the end of a 6-game road trip. I was very surprised that they let the Jets make the game a bit competitive in the 2nd and 3rd periods.

    Copp === "Junkyard Dog".

    I think he's going to be one of those playoff warrior types. Really love his game and attitude. He's a big body and he can skate all night. He and Lowry are going to be miserable to play against in the playoffs.

    Just watched the highlights, missed the game.

    Preds defenders are superb, and they utilize them so well in the offensive zone. Great team. We are a bit behind them even when healthy, I suspect.

    Loved the push back after the disastrous start.

    Onto the next game. Would be nice if we stopped getting injured. kthnxbai.

    You can dislike his ES play all you want, but he is actually good on the PP, so why would you take him off of it?

    This. So far Myers has been the best Jet d-man on PP.

    I have liked Byfuglien so much this year, but still not on PP. He is not great at PP anymore. His shot is not a weapon anymore and he takes way too much time to pass so that the opportunity was lost already.

    If in the past Lowry and Little were the most underrated Jets last season, I think Copp is the one today. I also think that PoMo should have had Copp to play with E+L in the absense of Stastny to spread the offensive talent as ECL did great for their 5 or so games.

    I think it would have been ugly had the concussion spotter not pulled Hutch from the game . I don't think Maurice wanted Helly to play in this game .

    Yep. And just as unfounded as the speculation that Maurice's ego got the best of him and that he was recklessly risking Helly. Both come directly from people's biases.

    TSN made it sound like it was the “NHL Concussion Spotter”, I believe Maurice said it was the Jets trainer who made the call in his post game interview.

    Seems to me that there is gonna be further fall out on this, especially the way Hutch was reacting.

    Just my 2 cents.

    That’s EXACTLY why Little has been targeted.
    The ONLY starting center not officially injured

    Let me get this straight. Buff has been to slow to move the puck on the PP, but you love Myers.

    Is that what I read?

    Like the way they showed some jam when it was looking like they were going to get run out of the rink. Showing they won't be anybody's doormat is a good sign.

    Maurice has to be happy with how they responded. When healthy they are going to be a ***** to play against in the playoffs. They have all the elements.
