#2471471 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by rrasco on 09 January 2014 - 11:27 AM

He's been called that for a few years now, by a few different posters

 

Yeah man, you should just read the forums more if you don't know everybody's nicknames.  Or you could have just looked at the stats for the Griffins...

Dirty Harry scored his team leading 14th goal for the Griffins last night and seems to be making a strong case for a job on the Wings next season. He has cut down on his pims considerably and has actually shown the coaches he can play as well as agitate.

A fourth line of Sheahan Tootoo and Callahan looks an intriguing one which may just happen.




#2393831 Eller Destroyed

Posted by jollymania on 02 May 2013 - 07:45 PM

Gryba connects shoulder to chest, Eller gets koed and his head slams on the ice causing rivers of blood. Gryba ejected for interference, puck clearly touched Eller's stick. No Hit League. Video to follow.

another embarrassing call. There was nothing high, vicious, illegal at all about this hit.

With education comes change

What education? Players need more education to not put themselves in the situations to get injured. None of these hits were egregiously dirty.




#2372090 NHL penalties/suspensions for hits getting out of hand.

I know it is a hot topic and we should discuss it here. Edler gets suspended for trying to avoid smith who was in the same exact situation last year with Shaw. Smith dove and now is faking concussion symptoms because his team is going nowhere and he has nothing to lose.

Lupul barely touched Hedmen who falls like a ton of bricks. Obvious dive. Yes what Lupul did should be illegal but he barely touched him.

Perry suspended 4 games for literally brushing against a guy who was lost in space and wrecked himself.

 

Zolnierczyk hammers Lundin and leaves his feet AFTER contact... suspended.

 

Nash blatantly jumps and nails Kopecky in the back of the head... nothing. Looked like it was a reaction play. Now this one may be the right call but then how can you suspend the others for doing the same thing (other than the Lupul hit which should have been a penalty and not a suspension)?
 

Kronwall 4 minutes for hitting too hard.

 

Smith turns at the end boards at the last second, Glencross who is already committed hits him and is penalized.

 

There are probably at least 3 dozen examples out there already this season of penalties called on hits where the player being hit is the one to blame or where a guy simply hits a guy "too hard" or "too angrily". 

It is starting to get ridiculous. I can give you examples of events exactly the same as these events in the past in which nobody batted an eye over because it is part of the game. The next step is to remove hitting all together and sometimes I wish they would just get it over with quick instead of this slow and painful degradation. 




#2372872 Perron's ridiculous dive.

I have a better idea, state in the rule that a dive automatically negates the penalty on the other team.

If players are being suspended for clean hits why not suspend guys for ruining the integrity of the sport.




#2365949 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Grown men, playing a tough sport so it should be 100 % the players choice, if they want to wear one. Having said that, as with Kevlar socks I think after the first major injury if they still refuse to wear more protection like gear they should pay a bit of their insurance by themselves (based on their salary).

It should be the players choice, really. I don't mind it being mandatory in the minor leagues, but grown men should be able to make that choice for themselves.

NO.  I wear a full sheild but thats my choice

Posted by thegerkin on 06 March 2013 - 11:42 PM

It should be 100% the athlete's choice. Look at Kronwall. He has a visor, but it couldn't be pushed up much higher. Players choice.

FWIW E said he took his visor off because of facial lacerations the visor gave him in the AHL. I like the current system in place. They are mandatory in the CHL and AHL, but optional at the NHL level. Therefore, each player is used to use a visor, but has the option when they enter the NHL.

If the players weren't employees being paid millions of dollars a year to work I'd agree that to some extent it's a personal choice.  But let's be honest-- each of these guys represent a pretty sizeable financial investment by the individual owners and in the end it's reasonable to want to protect that investment.  You can't tell your boss you refuse to wear a hard hat on the job site because it violates your personal liberty-- you're welcome to quit with your liberty intact but if they're paying you to work on site they have the right to require you to take reasonable safety precautions.

 

I'm with the camp that says the more protection these guys have, the more risks they take.
