After the replay, It looks like Abby just cost us a playoff series.

He's played well on the top line (who wouldn't with Pavel and Hank)
 
But he's still a 3rd/4th line player.  Losing him is not a big deal.  Put Bertuzzi on the top line.  He has better hands than Abby. This hardly costs us the series.  

They only scored one goal, so it shouldn't cost us the game either.  If we can't score one goal ourselves, we didn't deserve to win this game anyway.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The worse thing they weren't going to call a penalty until he couldn't get up right away.

 

Exactly - and its been like this since the new rules came in. On the whole I agree with them, but punishment seems entirely dependent on whether anyone is hurt or not, rather than the nature of the hit. Knee on knee but no-one is hurt - no problem, accidental high stick causes a nick 4 mins. etc....but then I lost faith in this league seeing the officiating and suspensions or lack of them in 2009. And years of seeing goals chalked off for goaltender interference when Holmstrom got crosschecked face-first into the goal. The choice of what can and cannot be reviewed is either incompetence or corruption, plain and simple.

 

It was a penalty and I can see the argument for tossing him, but officiating in the NHL is so inconsistent, so poorly set up with its review system and so open to bias and interpretation that I'm fed up of seeing games decided by people other than the players. It makes one over-sensitive to situations like this where the officials may have had a point. 

 

Plus NBC can blow me, because their intermission disgusted martyrdom is nothing to do with serious sports coverage or journalism. But it has to be said, the majority of coverage of NHL games has a level of bias, unsubstantiatable opinion and pointless sensationalism and hero worship that makes it very difficult to watch at times. I am disappointed with football coverage in the UK, but at least that is just inane. NHL coverage is often just embarrassing

There was head contact in that hit, and he left his feet. I don't know what you people are seeing, or if you have your homer glasses on.

Reallyf****** dumb play by Abby

Abby's hit was not clean by any stretch of the imagination, but it wasn't a hugef****** wreckingball flying tomahawk elbow either. Abby mistimed his hit which is why he left his feet early. He got his game, I don't think he should be suspended.

C'mon, channel some of that game 2 magic and score a few goals.  We can still win this.

Stop watching that NBC garbage...stream FSD if you must. NBC is a joke...absolutely everything seems like League approved commentary. They probably have a league rep there during the broadcasts.

PM me a link?

after seeing the replay, looks as though Abby led with his right shoulder into Lydman's left shoulder first, then made some contact with the head, but it did not appear to be the principal point of contact; however, he did leave his feet so that can't be good as far as avoiding a suspension

 

at any rate, blown call by the refs to just hand the Ducks a 5-min. PP and toss Abby

Ok, I'm trying really hard to be objective. If the Ducks laid that hit on a Wing, I would be pissed and think the major was warranted. But a game and talk of suspension? Get the f*** out of here...

Can already hear the phone conversation....

Secretary---"Mr Babcock, it's Shanny on line two"

Babs----"Just ask him how many"

Shanny---"he's got to sit until you can go a full period without a stupid penalty"

Babs---"Geez might as well be until Quincey scores!" He then instructs Kronwall to give the phone the business end of a signature hit.

Even Mike Keenan thinks he should be suspended.

 

My only regret (besides that it probably costs us the game), is that it wasn't on Selanne's head.  

 

I'd love to see just how strong that "unusual" helmet of his is.

Mike Keenan isn't exactly unbiased though!

Was a stupid play by Abby, and I bet he is suspended for it. Maybe the Wings might actually step up this period.

 

Doing his job and hitting a player clean was stupid? It was a clean play straight up. Saying otherwise is not understanding the rules.

Shanny likes the Wings ... right?  No further suspension.  5 and game misconduct served the purpose.

he wasn't too hurt to look up while lying on the ice to see if there was a call that was going to be made,

 

no call yet, I'll stay on the ice.

Don't forget that some people here wanted Perry suspended just for making incidental contact with Howie...

I'm sorry to all the left leaning folks on this board...but I'm sick andf****** tired of the pussification of this game.  

 

NBC can just go and fail as a TV network.  

 

Let's start showing hockey on A&E, at least they show folks shooting guns, fighting alligators and beavers and peeling the skin off of small furry creatures.

 

Or better yet...the History Channel...they have a show that is 100% sword and axe fighting Scandinavians.
