    Not a slewfoot. For a slewfoot, iirc, the plaeyer needs to have his skate behind that of the opposing player and pull him back such that he trips over the player's skate. McAvoy's foot is in front of Hyman while he pulls him back. Simply pulls him down.

    It was 100% a slewfoot. Hopefully the nhl reviews the dirty play.

    Dirty play? This isn't even thread worthy, let alone discipline worthy.

    Lol that's not a slew foot. Dude was already off balance and McAvoys arm gets his to fall over. Foot didn't even touch him.

    Good one?

    Let's just ignore the kicking motion McAvoys right leg does just as Hymans falling, okay.

    Again, coulda just been the grab that took down Hyman instead of the foot, another angle would be nice. Saying it isn't close to being one is absurd though.

    It isn't close. There is replay. Not sure what you are looking at. Tell me exactly where the slew foot occurs. Pro tip....you can't, because it literally never happens.

    Yeah don't think a thread is needed. We aren't Bruin fans after all.

    Yeah, and where in that video does McAvoy's skate/leg go behind the Leaf while tripping him backwards? It's not there.

    Mcavoy never got his skate behind that dude. Just leveraged him with his shoulder. Is it a penalty for interference? Sure. But the refs swallowed their whistles all game long unless it was very egregious or a delay of game off the boards

    I wouldn't call it a slewfoot, but how are people saying it's not even close? If his skate is three inches to the right, it's textbook. That's "close" in my book - it almost looks like he tried a slewfoot and missed.

    That video is taken from the left. It gives a distorted view point of where each players legs are. They played a few different angles during the game, mcavoy didn’t slew foot him. He got inside position and took him down with the front shoulder.

    Are you serious saying it isnt close? I mean more likely it was the grab that took him down, but there is clearly a kicking motion and it looks like it just missed in that second video.

    Again not thread worthy, but saying it isn't close than preaching to other people to learn what a slew foot is, it's funny.

    Not even a slew foot, fake news. Nothing play tbh.

    Way worse stuff going on in every series then that, that’s nothing.

    No, it didn’t.

    Sweet flop by Hyman though. Give it a 9.3. Bravo hymen, nice work — looks like it isn’t first time for him.

    I'm not sure how someone could call it a "slewfoot" AND THEN show a video in the same post that clearly shows it is not a slew-foot.

    I'm sure there are Leafs fans out there that are embarrassed by this thread, but, sadly, anybody is allowed to start a thread here.

    Not a slew foot, but def interference. I'd say the Marchand 2 hander on Rielly is more thread worthy than this.
