NHL is getting tough on anyone who messes with the goalies. Edler obviously didn't hit Smith on purpose, but it doesn't matter, he just might sit a game or two.

Don't like the timing of this, with our fully-booked infirmary. But ... this is probably a rare chance to see what our PP can do w/o Edler.

Unless AV applies for some clemency and asks the NHL to allow Edler to get on the ice for PPs only. That would be a good day to consider seppuku. Just kidding (hopefully).

Lucic. Got. Nothing.

So Edler sure as hell better not get anything either.

I don't think it was worthy of a 5 minute penalty, much less a suspension, but then again I've always been with the mantra that goalies should be fair play outside of the crease

So none of you think the edler hit was payback for daniel's bloody nose? Im kinda thinking the canucks thought that smith put his hand up on purpose on contact with Daniel so Edler went after Smith. Really unusual for Edler to do something like that.

i don't know if anyone as mentioned this, but Edler was playing the puck.

he kicks it up with his skate. If Smith didn't bobble it, he probably wouldn't have hit him.

If he would have used his stick, it would have been on his backhand, and that would have left Edler in a vulnerable, unprotected position because with Edler playing the puck, contact with Smith was inevitable.

The goalie can't get in the way of a player playing the puck. Smith bobbled it and Edler kick it up like he would have had Smith not been there.

Edler didn't run Smith over, he bumped him!
It is not comparable to Lucic or Tootoo vs Miller

But heck, Shanny makes the rules, not me

Anyone thinking he's not going to get suspended for this has the homer glasses on, IMO. If that happened to Lu or Schneids, we'd be calling for his head on a pike.

The major was fully deserved but anything more is just unfair. Smith knows he's blocking the and is basically expecting to be hit. His head even snapped back a half second AFTER the hit, while on the way down. He's a notorious flopper in these situations. As well, I don't know how he didn't end up with a roughing penalty after those punches to Edler.

That being said, Edler should have slowed down a bit though I'm sure he never meant to steamroll him.

I think Lucic should've been suspended but if that is the case Edler should get a cup of OJ and be off on his way.

3 games I bet. I never thought I would wish for Colin Campbell back in charge of discipline.........but Shanahan is 10x worse.

Lucic gets nothing but because it is the Canucks, you can bet he will get a game or two.

Saw multiple sources on Twitter speculating that Edler could get a game or two for his hit on Smith from tonight's game.... Brad Ziemer, Blake Price, and this from Puck Daddy:




http://sports.yahoo....20655--nhl.html

I don't think it should be suspendable, the major penalty was more than enough. Edler's not an aggressive player either, although he didn't make much of an attempt to get out of Smith's way, there was really nowhere else for him to go. Thoughts?


He wrote 681 words for... THAT ?

mmm edler hit wasnt that bad, smith was behind the crease blocking him with his fat ass same as the shaw suspension he basically dived that time like he got shot wat a joke if edler gets suspended the league is a joke o wait it already is.
maybe edler being suspended is a good thing we might have a positive plus minus for a few games

I'm not even sure Edler sees him until the last second and by then it's too late. I absolutely hate the rule that goalies are untouchable. If they decide to leave the crease, they should be fair game to be hit. In this case, he goes to stop the puck in traffic and he's invincible? Such garbage.

Further, if they were fair game it would probably reduce Lu's and Scneid's time handling the puck, which is never a bad thing.

This suspension talk is crazy, I mean it's true that there's no telling what DoPS is gonna do one day to the next but for real, let's keep it under control here. The charging major was arguably excessive, a suspension would be off the charts insane.

Edler has already gotten more than Lucic did for what he did to Miller, Lucic only got 2 minutes

If Edler gets suspended that's a complete joke

Shaw hit him I'm the head Edler and lucic hit in the chest and shoulder if the goalie wants to play the puck expect to get hit so no suspension penalty was enough

Ok, I think I am following along now...."eerily similar" is code for "not at all ???? like".......got it....its hard to keep up with these geniuses sometimes.

Did Lucic get a 2 minute penalty for his hit on Miller and nothing else? In that case the puck was long gone when Lucic ran Miller, whereas here Edler came pretty close to the puck and didn't follow through in his hit.

Shouldn't be suspended, but if Mike Smith is injured that will probably change things.
