    I wasn't going to wade back into this thread, but I can't resist a semantics discussion. You posted the rule here, but I'm not sure you yourself read it. The first and salient part of the description is "leading with his knee." You were quoting someone that said it wasn't kneeing because he didn't lead with his knee, but with his foot. His leg was straight. You apparently thought that the rule doesn't support that, but it's right there as plain as day.

    You bolded the clause that comes after that part of the rule, but the conjunction between them is "and," not "or." So kneeing is when a player leads with his knee. Sometimes, that means out to the side, sometimes it means straight in front of the player. But always leading with the knee.

    Looking up the rules and posting them is great, and helps the discussion. But do make the effort to read every word before jumping to conclusions.

    I don't want to say that's karma Koivu, but you're the captain of a team that thinks the game of hockey is played by slashing players in the wrist 47 times a shift.

    Also, fairly certain Gio wasn't apologizing after the hit, when Koivu came to the box (Gio was sitting in it already) and was yelling at him, Gio asked if he wanted to fight after he got out.

    It was a deserved trip, nothing more.

    I haven’t been wrong about a knee on knee before, so I certainly like my odds. Thanks for your concern though.

    It's hard to tell from a gif that's half a rink away but it looks more like a trip and an awkward play by Giordano.

    Also the league historically doesn't typically hand out supplemental discipline for kneeing so I'd be surprised if anything happens here.

    A sincere thanks to the OP for actually having a reasonable thread title and not calling it a vicious knee and asking how many games suspension. It's a rarity here these days.

    Hmm , strange response? I just pointed out your gaps in logic and helped you with understanding the rules and this is the thanks I get. Sadface.

    Taking advantage of the new rules ? Like every 3 years, yes what intelligence. I like how you imply intent, if you truly think this way, you see reality through a very warped filter.

    Desperation defensive plays like that are why Giordano frequently gets beat wide by McDavid. I'm just worried the he's going to catch him with that patented knee one game.

    I haven't ever sold a stock for a loss either - must make me a market genius. Solid line of thinking there instead of actually reading and comprehending what Anglesmith posted.

    I think it should be reviewed at least. What they make of it is fine for me..

    Dirty and looked intentional. Anyone saying otherwise is delusional.

    Giordano and Nylander should exchange last names.

    You should visit the Dumba thread. Very dirty player delivering a hit that didn't even draw a penalty. Also "the keeing pylon" is "the front runner for Norris".

    HFboards never fail.

    I'm sorry the Wild suck ass and have the excitement to be a first round loss every year. That's what happens when you employ diabetic Bruce.

    I'm sure you didn't give one **** when Gaudreau's hands were slashed to oblivion.

    Am I missing all of the Calgary success over the last 10 or 12 years?

    How is he not a front runner? Go look in the polls section... Literally every fan base is saying he is and has 50% of the vote. Not only is he an offensive beast this year, he is also an analytics stud defensively.

    Yup. Giordano will receive a suspension. Or at least a fine.

    That's fine, I'm sure going all in on that core is definitely paying off rn. Good luck in 2-3 years from now.

    Weird knee on knee when it looks like it's coming from the side with a straight leg.

    Totally tried to get a piece of him, not sure he was targeting a specific part. He left it out there too long to not be an accident or unintentional.
