Just thought I could share it as it perfectly sums up whats illegal and what's not (note rafalski is subjected to an illegal hit and franzen delivers an illegal hit :ph34r:)

All I want is uniformity. Don't call it once and not call it some other time. Don't give five and a game to one guy and ten games to another.

That is stupidest video i have ever seen, unless they have secret angles that they aren't showing people half of those hits didn't fall in that rule category.

No, but really. I agree. I hate make up calls too. Those type of things take away the enjoyment of the game. I don't want a team to win because of some stupid call be the Wings or not.

Nope blindside hit with most contact to head = illegal.

For instance the hit on Salmela, that one clearly is a mix of both head and body, it was just a huge hit, the Franzen one was borderline blindside, Lepisto really should have seen him coming from that angle. Backes makes absolutely no head contact whatsoever form the angles shown in that video.

Some of those examples they use as legal hits or illegal icing contact I disagree with. That Pronger hit seemed illegal and the first icing contact example they showed seemed fine to me. It looked like Marleau was gonna get there first and the LA guy had every right to take him out of the play. They last part sucks and takes out most of the good trash talking.

Pronger and the term "legal hit" do not go in the same sentence

EDIT: I realize he is much bigger than some players, but every hit he throws seems to have head contact

Yeah, I think kinda dumb. You should be able to taunt and intimidate your opponent. A little pantomime throat slashing never hurt anyone.

he probably never caught his brother in the head on a check

I still don't get it. The Pronger hit seemed more 'blindside' than half the supposedly illegal hits. Rafalski didn't even get hit in the head. Most of those icing calls weren't 'obvious'. And most of the altercation stuff is pretty harmless.

Anyone else think the NHL should have edited the last line a bit before releasing the video?

Here's the original line...

"On behalf of the National Hockey League and Hockey Operations Department, good luck to everyone in the 2010-2011 NHL season"


But with the model of consistency that is the NHL's on-and-off-ice officials, they might be better suited saying it like this...

"On behalf of the National Hockey League and Hockey Operations Department, good luck to everyone in the 2010-2011 NHL season. You're going to need it."


"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

The NHL: You still have no idea what the f*** we're doing, and neither do we.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

So Boynton just tried to take out a knee on a Tampa player and got beat up afterwards. On his way to the box he made the slit-yer-throat hand gesture so I guess we'll see how those rules are enforced.

After watching that video, I am now even more confused about the rules than I was beforehand.
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

The video of the Pronger hit directly contradicted what the narrator was saying about legal hits during it. The opposing player was turning up ice and there is no way you can convince me that he had time to look ahead and see Pronger bearing down on him in time to protect himself.
