FOR WHAT ?!?!?


Oh come on now! You've got to be a total homer not to think that was a vicious hit on the goaltender. 2 games seems fair. I'm just suprised it wasn't 10-15 games though seeing as how terrible the officiating has been this year.

Vancouver is one of the bigger markets and bigger revenue-makers. Even the NHL effed that one up!


I think what McSorely meant was big US Markets. The Canadian teams do and will get screwed over time and again because the league knows that the fans are hooked like addicts to crack and will keep coming back no matter what.

Smith has pulled this crap before. Goes out hangs onto he puck then waits to get hit. With all hose pillows he is wearing he will not get hurt and the opposing team gets penalized. Do a YouTube search for hits on smith behind the net. You will find other examples. I say run him every time and take your lumps.

Vicious? Are you sure hockey's your sport? If that was "vicious", what on Earth do you call what Lu had to contend with in the past?....always uncalled I might add. How about Henrik, and the constant shots to the head that he's been subjected to (again - uncalled)? No homerism, just facts.

So when our players are protected like some who put themselves in the way of the play, then we'll talk.

This goaltender has a history of this....so, perhaps, he needs to re-examine his position? And stay near his net if he isn't going to be aware of his surroundings floating around out there in lala land?

What?

Constant headshots to Henrik? I disagree with the other guy too, but i've never seen Henrik constantly getting "headshotted".. Honestly i don't think people watch games outside of the Canucks. Crosby takes just as much crap from other players, if not more than Henrik. But no, Henrik is not always getting shots to the head.. Yes he takes abuse all the time, but that's what you get for being such a terrific player.

Luongo has also never had to deal with hits or anything like that. Besides Byfuglien single-handedly ruining his playoffs by being a good hockey player and using his size very effectively, I don't ever remember Luongo getting hit or run over besides like once every like 15 games. Unless you count snow showers as "abuse" or whatever..

Best thing that ever happened to Edler and AV. Gets to sit a few games without actually being benched, like he should be.

Posted this in another thread but I think it's relevant here also.

Doesn't anyone find it strange that the NHL felt compelled to create and post a supplementary discipline video for a play that DIDN'T require supplementary discipline?

Bravo NHL...Bravo!!!

Hopefully Edler is refreshed, we need more from him in both zones.

The NHLPA/players should also be able to challenge the NHL and it's lack of consistency in its disciplinary actions hence its negligence in protecting the safety of the players, and demand something be put in place that can challenge the leagues disciplinary methods. It is the union's mandate to protect it's members. Too many players get knocked out of the game while the perpetrator simply may or may not be reprimanded. The union should be able to challenge this. Alternatively, the union should also be able challenge suspensions that takes a player out of the game when the "victim" doesn't skip a beat and is back on the ice the next day without injury. As someone has proposed, it should be eye for an eye. Perpetrator/victim should be out for equal number of games.
