Smith should be the one with the hearing

Intent to hurt Edler's shoulder with face.

If Lucic wasn't suspended then Edler should DEFINITELY not be suspended.


That argument holds no weight, Lucic should have been suspended for multiple games, he got off because the league had a Boston bias for the last couple years. Edler manned up and responded to a team that was taking liberties with our best players, he can handle whatever punishment Shanny dishes out.

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.

Actually no I wouldn't, I'd be pissed off at Lu or Schneider for not getting out of the way, I hate it when they come out to play the puck.Turco was always a prime example of how many liberties goalies take with the puck when they're outside of their crease.
I mean really, how often does a goalie stopping the puck behind his net really help the play whether it's for offense or defense? More times, it screws up the flow of the play from the players then anything else. It's a stupid rule, and that hit would have never garnered a phone call hearing if it was a skater so why a hit on a Goalie outside of his crease be any different.

Is it illegal to hit the goalie in the trapezoid? I always thought it was. If it is illegal Edler should get a suspension. If it's not illegal then it should be and Edler should not get a suspension.

I don't have much faith in Shanny and the NHL at this point. Less consistency than the refs. Rick Nash, as of this posting, has yet to be called to task for his elbow/head shot on Kopecky last night.

IMO Edler was trying to squeeze by Smith along the boards and follow the puck but wasn't really going to avoid contact. 5-min major was penalty enough.

Miller wasn't in the goalie safe zone, I hate Lucic but that was actually awesome.

Smith is what you call a preditory victim.
Almost like the guy that tries to hurt himself to sue someone or go on workmans comp.

The goalie got injured in sedins crash not edlers hit. Wake up! He almost went to bench with a arm type injury after sedin crashed him. When edler crashed into him smith was involved in the scrum.
If edler gets suspended because of an injury on another play...

It's not because he got injured. So maybe that's why no one is "saying or noticing"

Yeah he got tweaked on the Dank hit and milked it on the Edler hit but Shanny will only use 1 eye on the wheel of joke.

Yeah, Lucic's hit was miles worse than Edlers. By that guidline, Edler shouldn't get anything.

C'mon Nuck fans, that should easily be worthy of a game or 2. I don't want him to, but it's almost certain he will.

It's not like these suspensions teach the players anything anyway. Not when bruins get to do whatever they want.


It's black and white, that trapezoid is designed to protect a goalie as smith clearly displayed with his performance.

While that is true, id rather a coach sits him to teach him instead of being forced out by shanaban

So was Edler supposed to just stop as he's skating full speed behind the net on a forecheck? What a joke :sadno:


Basically my thoughts.

Nice try, but history proves otherwise.

Fine, when has a Canuck player been suspended simply because they were a Canuck?

There is no "goalie safe zone" the rule only states that there shall be no intentional body contact on a goaltender, whether he is in or out of the crease. Lucic should have been suspended.

Can't really use the Lucic non-suspension as an arguement. The GM's met after that to address protecting goalies and mandated bigger punishment for hits on goalies. There have been a number of suspensions for hits on goalies since the Lucic hit that were far less serious than Lucic's.

That was a bad call in my opinion. It is a penalty, he does hit Smith and it doesn't matter if it's outside the crease, but it's not a charge. I'm not upset that they're reviewing it, but will be if there's anything more than a fine considering the suspensions (or lack thereof) that we've seen in the past for contact with goalies.

I was 20 feet from the Hit by Edler on Smith....it was a HUGE check with no attempt at avoidance. To say he milked is pure bull crap from an idiot. Smith is about as competative as it comes. Had he been able, he would have started the 3rd period. Stop talking out of your ass and be realistic.

Edler shouldn't get anything. He had his head down going for the puck. The play happened so fast that you can't really balk at him for not coming to a complete stop. Same thing with the Kane video.

Stop messing around Smith.

Since you were that close did it look like Smith procrasinated on purpose in order to block Edler from going after the puck. It sure looked like he played the puck and deliberately took up all the space behind the net so the larger Edler could not get by and retrieve the puck. Edler definitely hit him though so no arguing the penalty but I hate when goalies do that. They should be fair game if that happens imo.
