What part of ultimate power are you having trouble with? The ultimate or the power part? Consensus my ass.

Did you heard the interview at the end of the game when he contradicted himself and the rules?

The on ice official ruled it a goal and Mike the Fixer overturned it after 6 mins. Any time it takes that long you know it going to be BS call. According to NHL rules video review has to be conclusive before the on ice ruling will be turn over. That was far from conclusive and everyone except Mike agrees. Hell even some of the Kings' players thought it was a good goal.

It is a BUSH league because of garbage like this. It is no wonder why bowling has higher TV ratings.

Don't be naive any time money is involved, there is and will always be rigging. Some Pro sports ie soccer, baseball have been jammed up over it. The NHL just hasn't been caught YET.

"The GMs wanted Colin Campbell, Mike Murphy et al to hold ultimate power."

What part of that don't you understand? You posted it, now read it. Mike Murphy does not have exclusive ultimate power. Quit acting like an idiot. That LA Times writer was not in the war room, so he doesn't know s*** and that link doesn't work.

Head on back to the Canucks board, where you obviously came from. Somebody might care over there.

And I would have thought the league would be tip-toeing around Vancouver after the whole Burrows/Auger incident. Guess Toronto holds a grudge.

After the 6-Penguins-on-the ice and I'veagyni Malkin's "he didn't MEAN to start a fight with just a couple of minutes left in the game" debacles that may actually have boned us out of the Cup last year, I say:
If Vancouver is looking for "sympathy" they'll find it between "sh!t" and "symphillis" in the dictionary!

At first I thought it was a good goal, but looking at the replay a few times, I can understand why the called it back. While Sedin was stopping, I believe he had a good idea where the puck was, and you can see him push his skate out more than needed to just stop. So I do think there was some amount of a kicking motion. Call could have gone either way in my opinion.

Evidence that the wrong call was made. "Not a distinct kicking motion but a kicking motion"

There was a view where it looked like he went out of his way to "stop" right where the puck would go.




What a Horse s*** call. Watch Milbury in the video; it's all he can do to sit still and listen to Murphy's BS.

Sedin knew exactly what he was doing. He absolutely had to "hockey stop" so why not hockey stop into the puck. It may be a loop hole in the rules, but loopholes are legal. And his only other choices were to make sure to NOT stop there( which would be ridiculous), or not turn his skate at all, thus not stop at all and get a goalie interference call. He made a great split second decision, did the right thing and did not get rewarded for a smart, athletic play that was (theoretically)inside the existing rules.

But I could not stomache the whinning on Vancouver's Team 1040 yesterday. As the Red Wings have shown, champions have to overcome this kind of bulls***. Life is full of bulls*** piled aginst you and with people that do not want you to succeed. Deal with it.

I saw the leg extended also, and yes he knew exactly what he was doing. However, it is a hcokey stop, not a kicking motion, and whats more is that he had to support himself with a Dman draped all over him. The only way you can do that is to get the leg way out exactly like that. Wihtout the wider base and increased leverage of the leg extended, he would have highsided in the goalie from the force of the Dman pushing on him.

I'm not a big Canuck fan, and don't really care who wins this series; its just my observation.

And I would have thought the league would be tip-toeing around Vancouver after the whole Burrows/Auger incident. Guess Toronto holds a grudge.



Not much of Canada outside of Toronto actually thinks much of Toronto, but there definitely is no love lost between the cities of Toronto and Vancouver, period. It's kind of amusing to watch from the outside.
