I don't think he thought it was in so much as "knew" it was going in. Sometimes you let it go and just know it.

Ottawa has the opposite problem of us. 4 right-handers to start the PP.

:lol:

If you're trying to redirect the puck into the net, which IS legal under the wording in the rulebook, you do.

And "not for the specific act of stopping" doesn't mean "distinct kicking motion." I don't expect kick-off like kicks, but still, a kick is a kick. You can't just change the definition of it for hockey.

Kick.

To strike out with the foot or feet.

Looked like he struck the puck with his foot did it not? If his foot wasn't going forward that would be redirecting. But he moved his foot to make contact with the puck.

Pretty cut and dry.

A redirect does not involve the skate moving to the puck. That is a kick. A redirect involves the puck directing off of a skate that has a clear, defined path that has not change as a result of the puck being near the skate. The skate did not have a clear, defined path. The path was changed to meet the puck which resulted in a kick. A skate path may be changed to redirect the puck but it must be made soon enough for the skate to have a clearly defined path.

And when is the last time you saw a guy really kick at the puck? Most of the kicks are small.

His entire body was moving. He changed the rotation angle of his foot.

No, it's not cut and dry. His foot was going forward because HE was going forward. And he moved his foot not to strike the puck, but so the puck would strike his foot. It may sound petty, but it's an important distinction to make.

Well it would be anyway, if the refs and Toronto didn't throw out the rulebook this postseason.

Just because you want to read into the rules doesn't mean they aren't following them.

It doesn't matter why his foot was going forward. This isn't about intent. It's about the fact that his foot moved to strike the puck that directly resulted in a goal.

Sure they're small, but you can't tell me that the goal we just saw disallowed was the same kind of kicking motion that usually gets a goal waved off.
