#2501584 Net off the moorings question

Posted by Nightfall on 26 March 2014 - 08:14 AM

The rule states smith has to push it off deliberately or accidentally, smith did not do that. It says nothing about pushing a player into the net. This is where the NHL leaves the rule open for interpretation. Make it black or white. By that rule smith did nothing wrong.


The rule does state that.


"the goal post must have been displaced by the actions of a defending player or goalkeeper"


Was the goal posts displaced?  Yes

Was it due to the actions of Smith?  Yes.  That player that had an easy tap in wasn't going to knock the net off himself just standing there.

Watch the replay again. The net comes up off the mooring before he starts the shot. He has the stick back for the puck when it first comes off but it hasn't started moving forward yet. No goal.


After Smith pushes him into the net.  Smith doesn't do that, its an easy tap in goal.  The goal as imminent, and Smith's actions caused the net to go off its moorings.  Once again, good goal.

I thought it was a good call.  The rule 63.6 states....




In the event that the goal post is displaced, either deliberately or accidentally, by a defending player, prior to the puck crossing the goal line between the normal position of the goalposts, the Referee may award a goal.


In order to award a goal in this situation, the goal post must have been displaced by the actions a defending player or goalkeeper, the puck must have been shot (or the player must be in the act of shooting) at the goal prior to the goal post being displaced, and it must be determined that the puck would have entered the net between the normal position of the goal posts.



IMHO, a goal was imminent.  The player had position, and he was going to have an easy tap in goal.  Smith pushed him into the net and therefore caused the net to be dislodged.  It really is a no brainer call in my opinion.

Signed him to a one-day contract?  Did he get league minimum?


League minimum pro-rated down to a single day would be about 2,000 bucks.  Which should just about cover the increases to his insurance premium when you consider he's adding a career in professional hockey to a pre-existing heart condition.

Power forward? Why are we even talking about this guy? We'll never see him in a Wings jersey.

#2494952 Cap increase may be lower than projected

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 March 2014 - 09:06 AM

So the expected cap increase may be lower next season, not the cap itself.  Kinda misleading thread title, isn't it?

#2489082 Canadians may be shopping Subban...

Posted by rick zombo on 04 March 2014 - 12:02 PM

Don't get me wrong, Subban is awesome.  But we don't need a #1 d-man, we've got one.  We need a #3-4 d-man to play with Dekeyser and that ain't Subban.  I'll take Erhoff and keep the assets personally.


+ Montreal would never trade Subban to Detroit.

#2481375 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

Posted by JasonNewEra on 05 February 2014 - 04:14 AM

My family has been calling them, "The Young Guns".

#2481153 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

redwingmachine line.

Why does every line need a name?


They don't, but it sure beats discussing whether Kronwall is a top 30 dman...

#2475337 1/22 GDT : Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 5 (SO)

Posted by dat's sick on 22 January 2014 - 11:25 AM

Toronto is proof of how fast things can turn around. They were doing worse than us. Now they have 6 straight and are comfortably sitting in a playoff spot. 


Now the GOOD thing here is that we have 3 games in hand on them. We really can't afford to lose more than 1 of those 3 in order to not fall too far behind.  


If we win tonight we keep ahead of Ottawa and New Jersey, and move up to be tied with Columbus for the 2nd Wild Card. 


The unfortunate reality however is that there is no logical reason to think we'll win tonight. Gustavsson playing his first game in a long time, still a depleted forward lineup, we suck at home, and oh yeah that Chicago team is pretty good. 


We need a miracle. 

#2468023 Drop the announcer and "Light the lamp goal"

Posted by HIFI_canadian on 28 December 2013 - 07:34 PM

Obviously, DTE is shelling out money for that.  No different than a "Belle Tire Power Play" or the "Call Sam Studios" on TV.  I agree though, it's annoying


It interferes with the goal horn too, not cool.

#2465478 Has Mikael Samuelsson finally played his last game for Detroit?

Posted by dat's sick on 17 December 2013 - 11:54 AM

No.  We will need Sammy when the GR kids are added to the LTIR group.



All in favor of 55fan season ban, say 'aye'.



#2450807 Marty the Marmot mascot attacked during WHL game

Posted by FlashyG on 04 November 2013 - 07:50 PM

Dumb move, but it didn't look like he was actually trying to hurt the mascot.


It almost seemed staged until they kicked the fan out.
