Haha, Mayray's awesome. That's what truly protecting yourself looks like, vs ducking a random D-man who doesn't have the puck.


I can't tell if you're joking or not, so I'll instead just remind you that the point of that video was to show you that the two hits were IDENTICAL, and if Marchand's a rat for doing it to Salo, what does that make Raymond for doing it to Marchand?

Watch the video, it's the same damn thing.

lol wut, it's not the same thing at all. The contact was made in a similar area yea, but that's not why one landed a suspension and the other didn't. It was the circumstance and intent of the hit, not so much how low he got. Mayray makes a pass and sees a known dirty player coming in to make a potentially high and borderline late hit, he says "oh snap" and avoided getting plastered the only way he could. That is self defence, a perfect example of what Marchand claimed he was doing. The hit on Salo was a race to the puck with no possession and that rat decided to cut him off and make like a bridge. Shanaban's explanation nailed it, for once.

Wow, you are blind by your homerism.

In either scenario, the player getting hit didn't have the puck. The only reason why Marchand got suspended was because Salo got injured (and I'm sure there was a lot of squaking from our management team). Had he have gotten up, like Marchand did, Shanahan wouldn't have even watched it twice.

yeah you're right, marchand is a super tough superhero, and every player in the league should play like he does.

The Raymond hit pissed me off the most. Dirty hit from behind, slammed him right into the boards breaking his back. No call, no suspension, and the classless Boston Bruins fans chanting "Diverrrrr" as he was taken off on a stretcher.

You are also forgetting that earlier in the series Marchand had made a couple of low bridge hits like that on the Sedins and others. He was not penalized for those plays whatsoever. So later in the series Raymond repays the favour, by ducking on a player known for dirty and dangerous hits, who was coming at him with speed. In that instance, it was a justifiable hit. Also it was from the front.
Salo's hit was in the regular season many months later, on a player who wasn't even going for a big hit, who didn't expect to get low bridged from BEHIND by Marchand. See the scenarios are different.
That's not homerism. That is just how it was. And I hate to use the NHL ruling as an example to prove my point, as they are inconsistent and poor at their job, but I feel it actually does matter in this instance, as they saw the two hits as different.

Until then, PK Subban's hit is easily my favourite hit ever.


Couldn't agree more....seeing PK Subban slam Marchand like that was fantastic! And unlike Marchand...he did it cleanly!

Additionally, Marchand had committed this exact same 'defensive' measure throughout the season and openly admitted it after the game. When you factor in his reputation, the fact he has done this more than once and the how he is a dirty player on a fairly regular basis, it was easy to suspend him. Raymond, yes, he ducked as well. However, take into consideration the guy has the cleanest record going, it's easy to look the other way and that's what the NHL did. I don't think a suspension is warranted in Raymond's case. A warning, fine, but not a suspension.

No player should be ducking. You're never taught at any level in hockey to 'duck' in order to protect yourself from a hit for obvious reasons. That's just f'ing stupid.

Good to see Bourdon, and good to see that he tried to stand up to the hit against his fellow team-mate.




Btw, The McSorley hit was too painful to watch. I can't believe i forgot about that head club.... I remember watching that.. oh man.. Now that's called standing up for your team. Loved the way Garth Snow hunted McSorley down. He deserved more than that.

Kieth on daniel getslaf on hammer and the hit that ended mitchells career with the canucks. pretty much lost my marbles when each of there hits happened. favorite hit is when Mitchell plowed toews center ice. then he gets up skates falls skates and crawls. all while the sedins were at the other end putting the puck in the net lmao.

Anyone remember the Getzlaf hit on Hamhuis two years ago. This was right after he had a concussion or maybe the hit that caused it. If anyone finds the video its worth the post. There was also a similar hit on Bieksa behind the net I think by Brent Seabrook that was straight to the head. Took him down for a while and the worst part was there was no call.

Hmmm, I could be wrong. And the fact that nobody else remembers it the way I do probably speaks to that. However, I remember Smith chasing Bure (not that that was unusual) for the entire shift, finally getting his hands on Pavel as he rounded the net, and basically horse-collar tackling him from behind. Bure fell backwards, pinning his leg under him, as far as I remember. For years I hated Steve Smith as a result.

In fairness, I was a HUUUUUGE Bure fan, though, so my opinion of the hit would likely be different if it hadn't been my favourite player and also if I wasn't 15 at the time.

I think it's still unclear as to what happened.

Can you believe the Boston fans ?

"Floopppeerrrr, floppppeerrrr"

Seeing him all busted and showing his support IN Vancouver for game 7 was inspiring. Because of that I'll always have a soft spot for him. It's not easy going from broken back to top performance. I wish him the best for this season.


Fans can't be blamed for crappy chanting.
We're like the worst.

That hit really got to me though.
Also Daniel being used as a punching bag in the finals.
It's so classic that the Canucks can't get standard calls in the playoffs. It's basically what's wrong with Playoff hockey and why it becomes a free for all brute fest instead of the fast skills game some fans would rather see.

People shoot down the non-calls, but these are all factors that can win or lose games.
If Danny got a call from taking obvious punches to the head, it may have been all that was needed to turn that game around.

I couldnt find any footage on youtube, but a hit that I still remember quite well is a hit by Sabres Rhett Warrener and Jay Mckee on Naslund that broke his leg. Odd that there's nothing on youtube.

I can't believe nobody through two pages has said the Steve Smith mugging of Pavel Bure which essentially destroyed Bure's knee and began his injury problems (I couldn't find a video).


McSorley-Brashear was a fairly close second, with Moore-Naslund being third for me...


No more calls, we have a winner. Without this hit, Pavel scores over 600 goals and 1000 points. No one ever discusses this hit, the cheapest slewfoot in hockey history it but THIS is why I hate the Blackhawks.

To put is perspective, if someone did this to Steve Stamkos today, he'd be suspended for a full season. Pavel was still amazing but never the same and the Canucks fell from SCF contenders to also rans for 7 years after.

He was just protecting himself right ? :rolleyes: I mean, Salo was coming at blazing speed, I guess.

love how everyone says the canucks didn't make marchand pay.

Kinda hard when Chara comes to his aid instantly.

Not really a hit but, Jumbo Joe sticking his finger up, I think it was Hanks nose, several times in last years play-offs. It was between whistles right in front of the refs, during a captains, refs confrence. I thought this basically represented the league snubbing their noses at the Sedins and the Vancouver Canucks. Really had me questioning watching hockey at all. What has this league come too?

When Marchand hit Salo I completely lost it. Started screaming and swearing even though both my parents were in the room. I was absolutely livid and I felt so bad for Salo when he tossed his stick in anger. The poor guy was having a good season and he's been injured a lot but has never shown that kind of anger. It was a total cheap shot.

That Kronwall hit was not bad. Clean hit. Kronwall is one of my favourite players because of his hits. I'm not a homer, I respect and do not mind big clean hits on our players. That makes hockey fun. I sometimes want our players to get hit to wake them up in the game.

That is what makes good rivalries and good hockey, big clean hits going both ways. But Keith on Sedin is another story.


What I didn't like about that hit was that there is no control. Kronwall turned his back and at that point anything could have happened.If the back of his helmut had hit Kes in the face, things may have been allot worse. Lots of plays are out lawed because they are dangerous.......I believe this to be one of them.
