#2363181 Faceoff violation Penalty

Posted by rrasco on 01 March 2013 - 10:36 AM

It's a new rule which is why it seems like they don't call it.  They have.  I've seen it called 4-5x at least during games I've watched.


Having said that, I'm not sure Pavs touched it with his hand, and if he did, his hand was still on the stick so it's not like he closed his hand on the puck.  They showed a replay of it, from the camera that was facing Pavs on ice level.  Puck was behind his gloves/stick, but I didn't see if he touched it or where it went.


What I don't get is, they allow hand passes in the defensive zone, but you can't do it off the faceoff?  If you're in the d zone, it's a hand pass, nothing more.  If you're not in your zone...then it's a hand pass and they call it down.  Why assess a penalty?  I don't remember which zone they were in, but that's irrelevant, it shouldn't be a penalty.

I didn't see the game, but I had the same thought.  The Wings lost because they didn't score.  Even if the officiating was poor, LA only scored 2 goals which means we had the chance tp at least get to overtime.  1 goal almost never wins a game.


You really had to watch this game to appreciate the officiating.  I was laughing hysterically by the end of the game.

Why don't we just cut to the chase and start the game with cleary and abs on the bench...or you could just send them straight to the box and get our 5-3 out of the way.

Strange that White is scratched...team was playing good last couple. Glad that Smith is in, but Quincey-Garbage should be the one scratched. I do agree on keeping Lashoff in though.  I would even prefer Kindl over Quincey crappy ass.  I think my gramma can play better than him... You guys will see him screw everything up tonight on D and Frazickle-Cell will drag down the O....oh Babs, why change things when you are flying high?


Huskins has been better than both Kindl and Q....again, time to question Babs.


Is it a requirement for you to throw a jab at Franzen in every, single, one of your posts?  We all understand how you feel about Franzen, but it's getting tiresome reading the same line regurgitated by you every post.  He's lazy but scores goals and has the best cap hit on our team.  Give it a rest for a while will ya?

First time? Where have you been under the internet rock?


Reddit sucks.  Someone needs to tell them their website is stuck in the 90s.

This just popped up after another video I was watching.  I thought it was hilarious.

So he didn't expect Tootoo to jump in, Toots pushed him off balance with the left and hit him with the right, as Dorsett was ready to go with E.


Again you said he didn't expect Tootoo to jump in, and seeing as the push and punch took about a second and a half you think it wasn't a sucker punch.


Agree to disagree on the semantics of sucker punch I guess.


This is not semantics.  It's fact.  These are sucker punches.

See I think Tootoo should have got third man in. Dorsett wasn't even looking at Tootoo and that is a Toots special, remember we all used to complain about those when he was a Pred.


If Tootoo and Wiz were scuffling in a pile and Dorsett sucker punched Tootoo you all would be screaming about how dirty Dorsett is.


BUT because Tootoo has a winged wheel on his chest all is forgotten.


I get that, but I don't personally subscribe to that logic.


So people don't think I am just anti fighter, I have a very similar issue with Mule, he is lazy and can be real cheap and dirty, I feel that way about him now, and I will if he ever wears another jersey (doubtful), regardless if he goes on a 10 game tear and gets 14 or so points, it just furthers my point he could play like that every game, but chooses not to!


It wasn't a sucker punch.  Toots grab him in the chest, pushed him back a few feet, then clocked him.  He might not have expected him to jump in, but he surely didn't get sucker punched.

Ericcson didn't drop his gloves.  I'm not even sure he knew Dorsett dropped his yet.  E dropped one glove as a result of Toots jumping in.  I think Jordin knocked it off.  E didn't need to fight there, we need our D on the ice not the penalty box.  Dorsett is just pissed he got rocked by a guy half his size.

Per Tootoo, I had the same opinion the FSD guys did, he's the fighter, not Ericsson.  Ericsson could have handled Dorsett, but don't we prefer our D on the ice, instead of in the box?  Not to mention would if E got hurt, broke his hand or something?  We're already down enough D and we just lost Q as well (can't say I'm all that bummed, but we need bodies at this point).  Even at that, E didn't have his gloves off yet, Dorsett did and was winding up, E wasn't ready for it.  E only lost one glove and that was due to Toots jumping in.  He didn't sucker punch Dorsett either, he got in between, pushed him back a few feet, and clocked him good.

#2358607 Rumblings that 2014 Winter Classic will be Wings/Leafs

Posted by rrasco on 21 February 2013 - 01:40 PM

I'm confused too.  This is nothing new.  Besides the fact that I had the option to get a refund or retain my tickets for next year, there were several quotes that came out weeks or months ago confirming it would be played on 1/1/2014.  It's the rest of the schedule for the Winter Festival that I am anxiously waiting to be released, so I can plan my travel.
