    What's the exact ruleset? He definitely takes off shortly after and during his hit motion.

    Good god is this the first check you've ever seen?

    This was a routine open ice hit. The collision causes Dumba's feet to leave the ice, just like every big hit in the history of hockey.

    First the 5 billion "slashes" video and now this? Get a grip.

    Dumba lined him up and it was a clean hit.

    You can clearly see Backlund lifting Dumba into the air in order to try and sell a penalty. Backlund is lucky he didn't get 2 minutes for diving.
    Am I doing this right?

    Looks fine, if anything Backlund needs to pay attention to what is in front of him, it looks like turns and then keeps his head down and isn't paying attention to what's in front and Dumba tagged him for it.

    I get why people think it's high or possibly dirty, but it isn't. Players can't put themselves in a bad spot like that and think they're safe because of the way the league is, you can't be stupid with your own safety.

    it's actually impossible to throw a hit without your skates leaving the ice, you know that right? plus initial point of contact his skates were still on the ice.

    He should have kept his head up.

    just saw it again. How the hell did Backlund not even see him coming. He had time to handle the puck and time to dish it out of all things.

    It looks like he was so preoccupied with the open net and the puck that he forgot to look up, got tagged for it.

    Not sure if you have a firm grasp of the term "impossible".

    and also no they weren't

    That was a good hit by Dumba, I'd rather ask about Lombergcdoing sucker punches to back of the head.

    I paused it right at the point of contact, Dumba has a skate on the ice... the impact and inertia of the collision launches Dumba up in the air. Backlund is leaning forward and Dumba stands tall. The hit was unnecessary, timing of the game considered... but I don't think there will be any further disciplinary action by the league.

    Lomberg should get a few games for jumping on a guy and punching him when he was down, while guy still had his gloves on... he didn't even try to let Dumba get his gloves off or square up. I don't mind the fact Lomberg wanted to fight him but don't straight up jump a guy and then keep punching him when he was down. If he would have asked Dumba to go and Dumba rejected him then I wouldn't mind if Lomberg just drops them and starts to throw... but that's not what he did.

    On another note... man, do I detest Kelly Hrudey. When he first started in the media, I used to like him but now he is unbearable to listen to.

    There's like 8 in this video.



    Only one where both skates came off the ice, unless him falling on Bouwmeester after the hit counts.

    It's as if weighing almost 100 pounds more than Dumba helps with that.

    Backlund definitely made himself vulnerable carelessly and Dumba IMO made the right call to stop him with an open ice hit. The big question is, did Dumba execute the hit within rules, or was there something he could've done differently. And no, not hitting at all wasn't an option.

    :laugh: I'm sure it does. Do people just not bother to read what's being discussed? One poster asserted that it is "impossible" to throw a hit without your skates leaving the ice. Wrong. Another asked for proof a clean hit without either skate leaving the ice exists. Provided.

    It's almost as if you shouldn't need to jump into a hit and make head contact in the dying seconds of a game :dunno:And then cower when big bad 5'9 Ryan Lomberg tries to make you answer for it. If Dumba wants to throw a hit and ignore keeping the puck in the zone down by 2 in the last minute that's his prerogative, he just needs to do it within the rules. If Wilson on ZAR in last year's playoffs is a targeted headshot then so is this. I really don't think there will be much coming for Dumba since the NHL couldn't really care less what happens west of Chicago but I guess some fans really just see what they want to see. Just another likely head injury due to a poorly executed pointless hit.

    Isn’t skating as hard as possible for 50 feet and launching into an opponent the textbook definition of Charging? Is that not in the rule book anymore?

    yeah something likely happens there. Major penalty in the last few minutes of a game automatically gets looked at by the league

    This is HD-quality video of the hit with CGY announcers. Please add it in the OP.

    I am usually very critical when it comes to hits to the head but this hit seems ok. Dumba had his skates planted at the beginning of the hit, arms out of the way and didn't hit the head with the shoulder. Good clean open ice hit!

    Doesn’t Lomberg get an automatic suspension for instigating a fight in the final 5 minutes of a game? would not be surprised if that’s the only suspension that comes of this.

    you guys too? Canucks fans hate him. I'm surprised he's been doing this job since 1999.

    back to the hit, look at the replay, my gosh how did Backlund not see him? Is one thing if a pass game to a guys stick and he gets smoked, (Laine) but this hit, Backland received the puck, had a second to handle it, and then dump it, and still not see Dumba?
