  1. Even the video sent out to explain the rule has panellist scratching their head. I'm still think that if all the goals shown in the videos (in particular the Sedin goal) are no goals, then last nights one should also have been called a no goal.
  2. What if this scenario occurs

    Agree... Unless there is a surefire star, I agree you could possibly draft for your positional need... as long as it makes sense. Guess it all depends on how well you rate the player at the potion that fills your positional need. As Baggings said earlier, JB says, he always picks the BPA. If you stand with a winger and a D-man and are in doubt, or have them placed fairly close in you projection, you may of course pick for, what ever position you need. On a side note.... One issue about picking positional need is, that what is your positional needs today, may not be it by the time the player matures.
  3. Ok after seeing 4 threads discussing this, what is a kicking motion? It seems to be the sticking point here...
  4. No chance... 4th at best...

    Well I totally disagree.... He slightly lifts his skate, changes the angle and make motion towards the goal... It has got f all to do with bitching about the refs or blaming the them for everything. This call was made from HQ. All to do with consistency.... There is another thread here, which shows a lot of No-Goal calls... If they are no goals, then surely this a no goal neither. We can argue till the sun goes down, how much you need to move your leg for it to be a kicking motion. But this is not just him changing the angle of his skate. He lifts his foot and moves it slightly sidewards towards the goal. In the condensed video at 6:26 it is seen clearly he moves his foot sidewards into the crease to flick the puck in the net.
  6. 8-2 Canucks. EP in on 7 of those and a Solo Virtanen goal.
  7. NHL has some explaining to do

    Yeah it really disappointing to say the least. I actually have a few choice words regarding this decision, but they would rather hard to read for all the #@%& etc
  8. NHL has some explaining to do

    Every single goal disallowed in the video has less of a kicking motion that Kuhnhackl's goal.... Poor poor decision...

    Cheers @mll appreciate you finding the rule from the rule book. But he still moves his skate towards the goal...It is a kicking motion 100%. He doesn't just change the angle of his skate, he side foots it in... A good old fashioned tap in... not just a deflection. Or at least its how I see it.

    Went to bed last night after 1st period... 3-1 Down and work in the morning... Anyway just got to watch the highlights. Can anyone explain to me how the goal in of a skate was allowed to stand? If that isn't a kicking motion, what the hell is? He is clearly changing the direction of his skate towards the goal, so it should surely not be deemed a kicking motion....

    Yeah the have to be careful, they don't ride him into the ground. I know they wanna win, but its more important the youngsters gets to get used to the intensity of the NHL, before they are expected to carry the team on their back.

    Agree totally on Pettersson, but could Pettersson being slightly off also have something to do with the amount of games being played starting to take its toll on him? Games at least every other night across the country, hotels etc etc... I'm not sure, but I don't think their schedule is anywhere near as hectic in Sweden, so he may improve once they get back to Vancouver again. But yeah, he will start to become frustrated...
  13. Guddy eyeing up Ladd.... Hope he staples him to the boards...
