    Good idea. Sticky a "Someone was mean in a hockey game .... waaaaaahhhhhh!" thread.

    true. Most of turning was from Hyman playing the puck, it makes it look like McAvoy pulls back harder when really it is Hyman's torso rotation.

    A sneaky, dirty play designed to surreptitiously injure an opposing player... yep Mcavoy is a real Bruin now.



    Well, at least he didn't get Pacioretty-d. With Boston you never know.

    What play are you even looking at? You must be watching games in an alternate universe.

    There was nothing dirty. It wasn't even worthy of a 2 minute penalty.

    Your kidding right? Did you even watch the play?

    Take a second look at it, of course it was dirty. Any neutral judge can see that.

    No I didn't watch a gif that was posted right on the front page :rolleyes:

    Go ahead and tell me what about it was dirty. But before you do, I'd like to know who the "neutral judge" you're referring to is. Its definitely not you because you're a Leafs fan.

    Apparently you didn't watch it in game either. It was dirty, but feel free to continue denying the blatantly obvious.

    Borderline at best, maybe a 2 min penalty in the regular season

    Definitely a slew foot.

    Foot/leg behind opposing player's leg, applying forward pressure: check
    Arm in front of opposing player's chest, applying backwards pressure to rotate upper body over fulcrum of leg: check.

    Textbook slew foot (though McAvoy didn't apply a lot of pressure with his leg, he still kicks it forwards).

    That’s a textbook slewfoot. Kicking motion toward the back of the opponent’s skate and an overhand motion with the arm to push him backward.

    Whether McAvoy meant to do it or not, you’ll rarely see a clearer case where all the elements of a slewfoot are so easy to identify. If he doesn’t get discipline for it, how does the league suspend anyone else for slewfoots in the future?

    THATS more of an interference than a slewfoot

    Only two threads this morning calling for Boston suspensions? For shame Toronto! I'm sure Backes or Chara did something.

    Now I finally get the use of the word “snowflake”.

    There are many posts in this thread that are singularly unique. However they represent a desire for a new threshold to contact that is extraordinarily delicate.

    1) that wasn’t a slewfoot, 2) this is playoff hockey, 3) for non contact gentlemanly behavior on ice may I suggest men’s figure skating - some of you will just love it.

    I will say that I heard some foul language on the feed last night. Bit risqué for some of the sensitive souls watching hockey these days.

    Lol the amount of times I've seen a clear head shot and people say "keep your head up" or "clean hit" has given me zero hope for most people on this site.

    It's funny because most Leaf fans are just pissed it wasn't at least a 2 minute minor. Hyman could have gotten seriously hurt on the play, and it was a clear as day slew foot.

    I have no desire to see him suspended, but if they don't penalize or fine him they're setting a pretty poor precedent going forward.

    Slewfoot motion, but doesn't appear to actually make contact with the kick though.

    No suspension but definitely should have been a penalty.

    Does his leg even catch Hymans?
