The trailing official made the call from about center ice. 

 

Which is my point.  Why are the officials that are away from the play making the call and not the one right next to it?

Because it's harder to gauge the play from up close sometimes. Depends on the angle as well, same reason umpires appeal to first/third base on if the batter swung through. Just because the one referee up close didn't see anything doesn't mean the other one didn't.

 

The game is fast and there's always going to be grey areas, which is where I think this hit lies.  But players also need to recognize when what they're attempting is a high risk hit and make sure they contact the body solidly.  That's ultimately what checking is supposed to be and if they can manage to get back to more of that, I'm all for it.

 

 

From experience the risk won't be worth the reward on the open ice. It's too hard to just hit a guy in open ice, players just won't do it anymore if people keep getting suspended. I don't know how I feel about the whole situation, on one hand the more we know about concussions, the more emphasis the league has to make to make the game safe just due to lawsuits like the NFL, on the other hand it's going to force players to only make hits that they are sure they can make, which will hurt the entertainment value on the game, without a doubt in my mind there will be less and less open ice hits, if players keep paying the price for shoulder checks.

There was one other angle that was played on FSD that, to me, showed him going shoulder to shoulder first.  Unfortunately all the clips on youtube that i've seen have been from NBC and didn't have that angle.  If anyone should find it they should post it.

The angle you're talking about was shot from behind the ref. I've been looking for it too. You can see why he didn't call anything and he had the best view.


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

Wings have to win the next game or Abby might have nothing to return from the suspension to.

And people wonder why I've stopped watching NHL games.

After 48 years of fandom, I couldn't take it anymore.

I can remember when this was a game played by men.

Now it's soccer on ice.

I'll love the Wings forever, but the NHL (No Hit League) has destroyed the game.

2 games, a 5 and a game misconduct in the playoffs. This league is going down the s***ter. Weber slams Z's head into the boards last year, a fine, no suspension. Then the preds organization openly mocks the play .
