Christ, always infuriates me when other teams goalies stonewall us but play like feces versus rivals (see Emery, Ray).


Bryz is coming off a shutout and has been playing well of late.

AHHAHHAHAH the flyers telecasts shows the hartnell hit on smith as hit of the game.

Everyone else sees the kronwall hit as the hit of the year

69%

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

The vulnerability aspect of this hit is no different than any other Kronwall hit. Im not using that as defense for the hit, but I don't know that Shanny can use that as the principle reason for enforcing a suspension.
I have to watch to replay again, but Kronner commits to his hits pretty early on and that poses a problem in these situations. When he commits to his hit, it's usually while the puck is in mid pass along the boards to the winger. Theres a good second or two as Kronwall transfers his momentum from skating backwards to skating into the zone. if a player presents his head in front of his body, eyes only in the puck after getting the puck, kronwall is already on top of him. If we give the winger the benefit here, and say kronwall can still pull up and avoid the hit, the winger gets a breakaway because at this point all of kronwall's momentum is going the opposite direction of the play, and hes pinched in from the blue line. Letting up on a hit in those situations would lead to breakaways.
For Kronwall when he decides to engage in the process of starting the hit, he either commits to the hit and risk the injury and the suspension if he happens to never put his head up, or avoid the hit and give the winger an excellent scoring opp.
The way the rules are set up really discourage these types of hits (not headshots but hitting wingers as they approach the blue line). I never really thought about it before this instance because everyone up until this point ( at least since the rules cracked down) got their head up in time to avoid getting it blasted off their body.


Well said, well said.

Wow, what af****** bulls*** whistle on that play. Bryz being a douchebag.

Moreso meant Emery beats the Wings and plays great but chooses to go back to his 3.00 GAA self after.

Looks like Bryz is pissed at his teammates.

Bryzgalov should be very forgiving considering the s***show he's put on this season

Stopped the puck after a Flyers turnover and then slammed his stick on the ice as if to say "WTF DEFENSE?!?"
