Definitely doesn't look intentional. Not a big deal
Are people even looking at the clip closely? At first it looks like McAvoy skate is riding forward like a slew foot but if you pay attention you see it end up to the left of Hyman's leg (not inside it like a slew foot) and what causes him to go down is McAvoy pulling on his shoulder.
Should have been a minor. Not even close to a suspension.
Hymen has the puck. How could it possibly be called interference. LOL lock this embarrassing thread up. He simply knocked him on his ass which is what he supposed to do.
I think you are being bias.
I mean it is.. you can't just grab a guy from his shoulders and throw him back.. but that's not the point of this thread. It wasn't a slew foot. /End
Hymen is carrying the puck and he hits him. In what world could this possibly be called interference? Oh yeah I forgot HF world.
Calm down hyman falls 20 times a game. The guy doesn't know how to stand up
Absolutely barbaric. He should be suspended for the rest of the playoffs and the entirety of next season.
I think NHL hasn't changed their rules, you still have to actually kick someones legs from behind while pulling them backwards for it to be considered slewfooting.
Which doesn't happen here.
How about a two-handed baseball swing?
Hyman doesn't dive. Ever. He just falls down...a lot. Seriously, I've never seen a player fall so much in my life. And it's usually for no reason. It's hilarious because he's a great skater and seems to bounce off contact like it's nothing.
In a vacuum or in the context of that particular play? In a vacuum I’d say probably shouldn’t do that. That play was marchand shooting after the whistle..not allowed; then Rielly cross checking him in the boards, not allowed, then the marchand slash; not allowed. But all things considered just kind of a playoff hockey scrum. Deserves 2,got 2. Not like he hurt him. Just across the shin pads. Pretty harmless.
You can't swing your stick like a baseball bat. There's intent there. It's dirty. That's definitely not your typical scrum play. Not exactly a tap on the shins. He certainly should have gotten the extra 2. Riellys retaliation is likely the only reason why but he didn't even make contact from what I saw. That **** is dangerous and stupid.
The bias is strong with this post.
McAvoy's leg is clearly outside of Hyman's leg. Clean play.
Oh come on. I dont think its anymore than a penalty and a warning, but you can clearly see McAvoys skate "stutter" which happens due to the contact of the skate on Hyman. Just because the leg doesnt maintain the contact when Hyman's skates go flying up doesnt mean he didnt use his foot.
Clear penalty. If Hyman was injured on the play i guarantee you it wouldve been looked at by the DoPS. Since there was no injury, they'll see it as a missed penalty call.
If you want to say that the arm caused Hyman to fall, fine. However it was at least an attempted slewfoot and I believe he made contact with his skate.
Once again, I think its nothing more rhan a penalty. However the blatant "theres nothing to see here" posts are ridiculous.
How about interference and holding all game.
On Boston, I agree
It should have been a ****ing penalty.
I don't know how that can go uncalled.
He made the movement of a slew foot, but his skate didnt even touch Hymans skate/leg, his leg was on the outside of his the entire time, so how is it a slew foot? He just pushed him over lol
McAvoy's skate didnt even touch Hyman.
Can we just have one big thread for all these ridiculous threads?
Agree. One thing I would add his McAvoy's skate entends out under Hyman as McAvoy is reaching for the puck and this skate contacts Hyman's skate as Hyman is trying to move his feet. The biggest impact was thigh on thigh. Hyman's feet get tangled since he's now off balance trying to rotate and play the puck and when he gets pulled back and he down goes because he doesn't have his balance.
It's a minor penalty at most, but not a slew foot.
I'm still confused where people see a minor penalty. He finishes his check moments after Hyman dumps the puck. What penalty could be called here? 2 minutes for pushing?
