Don’t think he’s considered a leaf prospect because he’s on an AHL contract. But pretty embarrassing either way haha
Not really a dive. Getting a stick in the face kinda hurts even if the play is slow.
He thought he was in the nba for a second
He’ll fit in perfectly with the main club
Elynuik is a great hockey name
I agree. Why don't we laugh at all the memorable times the leafs dived like crazy. What are your top 5 this year?
How much does it hurt the face when the stick hits their mid-chest area? That was nowhere near the face. 100% a dive.
Remember watching this guy with Spokane Chiefs and thinking what a draft steal he will be. Superb vision on the ice and wicked shot. Yamamoto was his teammate and in comparison looked somewhat unimaginative.
Guess that's one of many reasons I'm not a scout.
Nah you’re right it isn’t a dive.
A hostile sniper entered the building and took him out.
They've got a stupid car sitting there like the Isles had at Barclays
Weird one. Kinda funny.
Not sure it was penalty worthy though. Let play continue.
It kind of looks like he ducks his head when he's coming around the net and the butt end of the other players stick gets him in the face. I'm just not sure what he's doing lowering his head as he skates into that guy though. Puzzling play.
The dude is bleeding lol getting a stick butt in the mouth hurts.
What's an Elynuik?
Shaft of the stick definitely was in contact with the face.
"Learned it from his time in the Canes org"
At first I thought it was a hilarious dive, but re-watching it you can clearly see Samberg slightly adjust his hand/stick towards Elyniuk's face - he definitely got a butt-end to the mouth which is why he was bleeding in the box.
Why Elyniuk was skating in that position with his head down after losing the puck is beyond me though, clearly has some major blinders.
Came to write the same. I think the butt end of the stick got him in the face. I don’t think he even tried to draw a penalty. It just hurt and he fell.
He is such a consummate diver that he even wills himself to bleed? Some of you are too much.
The best part of this whole thing is at 1:00 when he's trying to figure out what to do with his bloody finger.
Not a good look for one of the top NHL prospects in the league
You think he'd have a role on the top team in the league?
Odd thought process, kiddo.
