You know Doughty has some "issues," don't you?
That was a pretty good explanaion.
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Like how the explanation was not related to the game. I thought something in this explanation would be about retaliation against Carrier. Just looking at the hit as the hit.
If no Carrier, who comes in?
Hopefully Gallant stays the course & picks Lindberg.
Lindberg's the guy, unless Perron appears and then Carpenter is the guy.
Okay, lets have a moment of neutral clarity. Let's pretend that wasn't Carrier and Doughty last night and that this suspension doesn't (supposedly) help us. Is that really a suspendable hit?
I get the head thing, I really do. We don't want guys getting all messed up from getting their bell rung every day, but that hit? A game? In the playoffs?
Am I crazy to think that should just be a fine?
I thought it was a cheap shot & suspension worthy in today's NHL.
Like I said before, that's a "hockey play" in the 70s, 80s & 90s, & not another word is spoken about it. The caveat being if it was Gretzky or Lemieux on the receiving end. Only then a suspension would be handed down.
Head shots and hits on opposing players that get injured like taking out someone's knee and is unable to play for multiple games will get you a suspension in the playoffs.
Serious maturity issues.
That's how they've been reviewing these hits and they've really cracked down the past 2 years. I'm just surprised they would actually suspend a star player. The fact that it seemed retaliatory didn't help his case.
Who wants to make the GDT? Probably need one within 2 hours.
In the absence of people with talent, the GDT falls to me, I suppose.
I’ll try to make it not suck.
Doughty has no intention of just making a hard hit to flatten Carrier there, or even a body-bump to impede him. It was “fly through and catch him high” act, practiced so many times to look like incidental contact, but that doesn’t fly when your target is the puck carrier, you have no interest in the puck, and you try to sell it as if you just got tangled up. The fact that it’s a star player on a role player only enforced the fact that the league got it right. It used to have to be a plug hitting a star to get a suspension in the playoffs. Things are better now, imo.
This could be a rivalry, given the fact that during medieval times, knights used to fight for kings during wars.
GDT is up.
Game 2 Winner.
New ringtone, anyone?
I love how Neal waits for the celebration in the corner, like “over here, boys, let’s use the boards so we don’t fall and get crushed by teammates” haha
Also nice to see him on the scoresheet, he’s been either quiet or injured for so long. Still seems quite contact-shy when we have offensive possession.
You guys are lucky to have chris cuthbert and Ray Ferraro calling the games. We get Dave randorf.
Of course. Almost every one of the best defensemen play the game on the edge and have a real nasty streak. He is still one of the best and playoff tested and as highly motivated as he ever will be.
Almost went, but have new water heater being installed this afternoon.
