    If we get swept it isn't as bad compared to other teams that may getting swept.

    i'm going to assume your another person that "doesnt watch football"? they seem to be fine with a hair out of bounds and spending mins getting the call right?


    also the caps review last night was about a min long so not sure the "horror" in taking a min to get the call right?

    i'm not defending the offsides either. i dont like it but guess what its part of the game! so until its out of the nhl deal with it and might as well get the call right

    As great as he is (and as much as I loath him I absolutely think he belongs with Gretzky, Mario, Howe and Orr when discussing the greatest players ever) if you don't see that there is one set of rules for Crosby and another for the rest of the league I don't know what to say. I still remember the game 6 at Nassau in 2013 where in OT he should've been penalized for a ridiculous dive but the Isles got the penalty instead and the Pens won the game and the series.

    Not at this point, LA only has to lose one more, we still have to lose two. And the Caps have the next two on the road.

    Getting breaks on calls from different refs because you're the darling superstar of the league is not akin to a league wide conspiracy to ensure the team he plays for wins the cup.

    Some of you guys need to get a grip.

    The Out of bounds rule in football exists in a completely different context than the offside rule in hockey. The blue line is not a boundary. Its purpose it to deter cherry picking and unfair advantages in the o zone. It was never intended to be scrutinized down to a fraction of an inch, because that slim of a margin provides no discernable advantage to the scoring team. There's no comparison there to out of bounds in football sorry. And even if there is, that doesn't make the offside review any less mind numbingly stupid.

    The offsides review rule is the textbook example of the law of unintended consequences. It was intended to correct Leon Stickle type errors but instead is being used on calls that if there was no replay nobody would even notice.

    I hear you, but the rule says what it says and has to be enforced that way. I don't think there is a spirit of the rules variable for this. The league will have to revisit this issue and hopefully it cleans it up a bit but as for the video aspect, I'm not sure that the time to look at it will change much. If the league mandate is to scour the video then that takes the time it takes. I don't love it but at some point the calls for and against on video should even out. One thing I would change is to put a chip back in the center of the puck and sensors on the goal so that a shot like Wood has can be evaluated without having to see if a black puck is over the line while mixed up in the black part of a jersey.

    the blue line is definitely a boundary.

    In other news.

    Nashville just recalled their secret weapon...

    Anders Lindback!

    So naturally I'm tagging @Bleedred so I get only the finest Blimpback chirps.

    He's still in North America and back in the Preds organization? Good god.

    Did Saros lose a couple limbs? You'd need to lose a couple of them to be as bad as Lindback,

    It's rare that a backup goalie makes an impact in the game.

    Tonight and last Leafs/Bruins games are a good example of what I say about single game stats regarding goaltending or any position.

    On Saturday night Andersen allowed like 3 goals on 6 shots or maybe it was even 4 goals on 8 shots? I didn't think he had a chance on any of them.

    Tonight he allows on 2 goals on 42 shots and both were terrible, but they were the only goals he allowed tonight and they won the game. Probably correcting the numbers a bit. Didn't deserve to be dinged as bad as he was last game and probably didn't play quite as good tonight as he did on paper.

    @Bleedred You think maybe there is something to "having the last change" playing a major role in a team's chances at winning?

    (yeah it didn't help the Crapitals but it's the Crapitals)


    BTW, Anaheim is done. Poor Rico. :(

    Didn’t seem to help Carlyle when he had last change at home over the weekend.

    Carlyle sucks and Anaheim also has a lot of trash eating minutes for them. Bieksa, Beauchemin is really falling apart.

    They can't... right?

    I don't think I can bet against Vegas. They seem to have their number.

    I'll say yeah, but that'd be pretty weak on LA's part.

    Carlson looked like a dumpster fire on that shift. He'll fit in nicely.

    Not an out of town game, but could very likely affect one tomorrow night. If this is a severe injury, Gudas may have played himself off the team for next season.

    Subban's a star in this league, he can do whatever he wants.

    A puck is to Lindback what a mouse is to an elephant. He tracks the puck so poorly. He's got Tim Cheveldae like reactions to deke attempts. Grand canyon 5 hole. How is he still in the league?
