    “Many people” are saying ...? ;)

    Just like the Habs PP advantage late in the game. Or outside of Toronto, the league and ties to Shanahan conspiracy (and Burke before him).

    lol of course it was , just like Kadri's knee on Ovi last year

    lucky for us all our dirty plays are accidental unlike our opponents who are just dirty mother****ers targeting our best players

    It’s 2018, he’d get a 20 game suspension and 1/2 million dollar fine.

    Ok, I didn't say anything about anything else being accidental and I was the first one in the Kadri thread to say how disappointed I was with Kadri for his hit on Wingels. There are some good slow mo replays on YouTube of the Kadri knee but hey if you want to believe that he actively targeted the knee then feel free.

    The Ovi hit was a good hip check with the principle point of contact being the hip. This, the same hip used to smash a defenseless head into the boards. Big difference.

    If he was playing today - I agree.
    But he would still be one hell of a defense man that his team mates would love, other teams would fear and he would still win a hell of a lot of games because of that.
    Maybe I'm out of touch with modern sensibilities, but why is everyone so dam sensitive these days?
    Its a contact sport, play to win, play hard, be fearless, play for your team mates. Isn't that what you want from your players?
    Let the Bruins (and Bruins fans) worry about Wingels' mental health and all the other stuff....

    whether it was accident or not doesn't change the fact it was a reckless play by a player with a history of reckless plays and it may have ended Nash's season

    no actually there's plenty of clips showing Kadri went low and led with his knee which was the initial point of contact on Ovi's knee

    only in Leaf Land did it become a clean hip check

    Well, maybe because we know head shots can have life altering consequences?
    Yes, elbows get up against the boards and accidental headshots happen, but anyone who condones intentional headshots isn't condoning good tough hockey.

    I would agree with that.

    In the end, hits are reviewed. Kadri’s hit on Sedin is another example. The league look at it and said “clean.”

    This one, they looked at it and said “suspension”

    There’s a choice. Accept it or try a lame defense.

    Fortunately, the majority call it out for what it was. A dirty hit.

    Others, when asked to stand up to head shots, prefer to turtle if it involves their favourite player.

    Looked like a follow through of a hip check to me where yes it hit but the leg bone is connected to the hip bone and the... They studied it with the 240fps cameras and such and 4k resolution. If that were obvious he gets suspended.

    The Wingels hit was so dumb.

    He's a line player, like Marchand.

    I don't like either player, but appreciate what they bring to the table when they're on the right side of that line.

    there was a thread with a still pic which clearly showed Kadri went low , led with his knee with the initial point of contact being Ovi's knee , if that hit was on Sid Kads would have been suspended imo

    yup the Wingles hit was dumb and unfortunately it's costing us dearly

    I like both players even though they're both idiots.

    I'm not sure how much it is costing the Leafs when they've been absolutely brutal on the PK. Nothing to do with Kadri's contributions even when he's in the line-up.

    Well Kadri contributions did put the Leafs on the PK, so there is that .. :wg:

    Goals were scored against the Leafs with Kadri in the penalty box and even in the Leafs shower while getting 5 and a game.

    I do see things that aren't there for YOU! I can see the predator in blue just don't run around window dressing it.

    Yes, we know he missed game two. He should miss the rest of his career.

    I would suggest, the main reason the Leafs are down is the compete level, mostly with the
    Leaf's defensemen that is to blame. Go look at the goals against, whether short-handed
    or not. They do not fight for ice space. The status quo is either not knowing there's a guy
    there and not cover him. Or acknowledge there's a guy there, keep him at arm's distance
    because, well everyone deserves their personal space. The end result is the puck gets to
    the open player, and he has time to score. The only thing the Leafs defensemen, especially
    Hainsey are doing is delaying player's goal scoring celebrations by a few seconds.

    What astonishes me at this point, you watch the play, Komarov has fully tied up his man
    or is completely eliminating a pass to the point, etc. And the fans blame him for the
    failure.

    Leaf fan logic

    IF Goal_Against goto Blame_Komarov
    If Komarov = Not_on_Ice goto Blame_Bozak
    If Bozak = Not_on_Ice goto Blame_Plekanec
    If Plakanec = Not_on_Ice goto Blame Babcock

    Well, see that's the problem, you're supposed to use a "perform" not a "goto".

    No not just like.

    Talk to any player, ask them what home team gets the benefit of the call at home more than any other rink and the reoccurring theme will be Boston. I've seen it reference in biography's of former players, heard former players talk about it. Its not a Sasquatch or Loch Ness monster story.

    I agree Naz should have been penalized but I personally think the influence of JJ over the NHL had more to due with the length of the penalty than the actual crime did.

    Its splitting hairs (3 games vs 2) but Pasternak got 2 games for targeting a defenceless Giraldis head , Bruins' Pastrnak suspended for Girardi headshot - Sportsnet.ca

    No I don't agree a players past history has anything to do with the severity of the punishment, it's simply illogical. Giraldi's health is worth 2 games but Wingles health is worth 3 games?

    This hit is probably he 3rd or 4th worst in the series so far.

    Schaller’s attempted elbow headshot on Marner, Kapanen being driven headfirst into the boards, and Wingels elbowing Marner in the head were all committed with much clearer intent to injure.


    Leafs players just don’t turtle when they get hit, so they don’t look as bad.
