Looks like Hughie is going o get a lot of attention this year. Like those early years of Tanev being run.

Well we now have quite a few physical guys who can send messages back the other way. It will be interesting to see how that plays out this season.

Exactly.  Run our top skilled guys, and we will run yours.  It’s all good to play hard against those guys, but taking runs will cause the other team’s skilled guys to become targets too.  Coaches, and those skilled guys, don’t like that.  They will tell those idiots who are taking runs at other teams’ skilled guys to knock it off.  Play hard and make it hard on the skilled guys, but do not take runs.

That's as intentional as it gets.

Wow, I missed the play on the ice but that is dirty.  The league should hand him a 1 game suspension in the regular season (assuming he isn't just some farm plug) to send a message.  Deliberately whacks him across the mouth, no puck to be seen, not even remotely close to making a play.

Exactly. There's no way to excuse that.

it really wasn't. the video is a bad angle, and it was more obvious while watching live, but if you look close, you can see quinn's hands/stick move back and away from the guy just as he was attempting to lift quinn's stick. quinn's slick skills in this case backfired a bit.

 

the confounding thing is that it wasn't a double minor even though he needed repairs.

Yeah good call.  It's just like Brashear here who just moves his hands slightly so McSorley misses the stick lift.

you should try watching the game instead of a 2 second gif. 

 

though I guess this is the internet in 2019 ... I imagine 2 seconds probably tops out your attention span.
