I agree that they should have told him he was cut instead of letting him find out through TV, but nothing entitles him to be on this team. Maybe if he worked harder he would be on the team right now. There's no one to blame but himself.
Good lord really? Its fine that someone is on your s*** list but there's no need to continue to blow stuff out of proportion. Have they had questionable hits? Yes EVEN PLAYERS HAVE when we had guys the still hit. But its not intentional.
It's not "intentional" to end a player's career, but when you see people like Cooke who have been known for headshots you can't tell me that's a mistake every time.
we already lose our minds with discretionary calls, and you want to add another discretionary call for the ref?
i'd rather they make puck over glass like an icing. defensive zone faceoff and no change of players
Agreed. If I was a ref, I'd hate for them to make this rule discretionary. All they would get would be more s*** from fans and players. I hate that this gives someone a 2 minute penalty but there's no better way to handle it. If they got rid of the rule we would start seeing a lot more pucks flying over the glass.
It's definitely a weird feeling knowing that our playoff chances could come down to the last game. I'll be happy as long as they make the playoffs. I want more Red Wings hockey and I want to keep that streak alive. I'm not ready for this half season to be over.
