But didn't two of our great fans just say that goals like this are why we should have traded Quick and kept Bernier?
In all fairness Bernier would have had difficulties seeing the puck bounce at his skate when Quick actually hit it with his blocker.
Whoever thought that should have their heads examined.
Bernier is the more technically sound goalie but Quick's never say die and super-humble attitude is the perfect fit for this team and team defense. And his great athleticism makes up easily the technical ability between him and Bernier.
In Toronto, they need a star to lead/represent them...Kessel has become a great player but is not a leader-type.
should've been an icing
I hope you don't think that's worse than what Quick did
Like it matters... both goals were crap.
In other news.. those cane jerseys are disastrous
How? Dvorak was getting to that puck first. And Quick lost his stick on a misplay. I don't see how Bernier's gaffe isn't any worse. A bad goal is a bad goal.
Uh, have you seen the icing calls this season at all?
Doesn't matter what's been called. Did you not see that Dvorak was the first to the faceoff circle? The linesman didn't blow the play dead, so nobody should assume that's an icing until they hear a whistle.
that's why I said it should've been icing. what are you arguing here
No way that should have been an icing call. And it's not worse than Quick, it's just as bad. Granted, Quick didn't get scored on from behind the net without anyone in his own zone. That's a first.
Why should it have been an icing? Dvorak plays for Carolina you know.
That's not an icing. Dvorak looked to be in better position to win the race. Secondly and more importantly, the puck hits Bernier's skate before either player reaches the dot, thus waiving off the icing and making the argument of who would get to the puck first irrelevant.
Dvorak was going to outskate Rielly?
I can't watch videos on NHL.com but the youtube shows that they were still toe-to-toe by the time the puck bounces off the boards.
They are fairly close, but if you look at who reaches the face off dot first, it's Dvorak, but you could argue maybe it's close enough to say it's icing. So yes, he did outskate Rielly.
Only issue is that by the time either one gets to the face off dot the puck is in the back of the net. The puck hits Bernier's skate well before either player gets to the face off dot, negating the icing.
The correct call was made on the ice by the referee. It's not an icing, it's a goal.
Btw, even if it should have been an icing, it's still a horrific goal to allow. Icing or not, Bernier gave up a brutal goal.
