#2467582 Maybe the weirdest OT winner you'll ever see

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 24 December 2013 - 09:59 AM

That's now how it works.  If you lose sight, whistle is blown.  99% of the time, the ref knows where the puck is, be it under the goalies pad, under his glove, whatever ,even if he can't see it under there.  If he can't physically see the puck, the whistle is to be blown.  The ref might have seen it go in, but he had no idea where it went.  It could have fallen out or whatever and he not seen that.  Bad call.  Did they go to Toronto on this?


A grey area maybe, but not a bad call. The circumstance you're talking about is when the puck is already in the crease and the ref loses sight of it as the goalie is trying to cover it.  It's a much quicker whistle because refs don't want guys hammering away at the goalie to knock the puck loose when it might be frozen.


In this case, Smith is outside the crease when the puck goes up in the air and in his pants, then Smith immediately slides back into the net.  He in no way is trying to cover the puck.  And watching it real time, the ref skates over and blows the whistle after only a couple seconds transpired.  


That happens all the time in hockey when a puck gets stuck in a player's equipment.  The refs wait a couple seconds to see if it'll fall out.  On the overhead you can even see that the puck is visible the whole time.  It didn't disappear into his pants.


The ref never signaled a goal on the ice so I'm guessing this was reviewed in Toronto?

It always makes the League look better if the player can crawl away on his hands and knees.

#2462570 Shawn Thornton attacks Orpik (leaves game on stretcher)

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 December 2013 - 06:12 PM

If Thornton gets more than 5 games, it just once again proves what a complete joke the NHL is, and how hypocritcal they are.


Lets be real here, Thornton didn't even drop the gloves, he just caught Orpik just right with a gloved hit and briefly KO'd him.  The only reason everyone is making a big deal out of it is because the brought in the stretcher.  Players throw punches to each others face with gloves on literally every single game at some point.  


Neal should have had the book thrown at him.  That knee was such a digusting and dirty play.  Thornton was out of line too, but Neals hit was WAY worse, IMO.  The intent from Neal was nothing other than to seriously injure. 


Lets also not forget that the reason Thornton went after Orpik was because Neal immediately after kneeing Marchand in the head, ran to the bench like a gutless coward so he wouldn't have to go with any of the Bruins.  If Neal stays on the ice to face the music, Thornton goes after him instead.

So your a big fan of womans hockey then. Checking will never be out of the game. It moves to fast to not touch anyone.

Hi - I'm F.Michael - maybe you don't know me all to well so let me take the time to introduce myself...


For those who've been here these past several years knows that I'm a proud member of the 'Knuckle Dragger Club' (well it's sorta unofficial)...Anywho - I am one of a handful of dinosaurs here at LGW who loves a good fight between 2 willing combatants, and still feels it to be beneficial to have a handful of guys on the roster who can take a reg shift, and get their noses dirty when needed.


Now  - with that being said...As expected - there's disgust of what we had seen with last night's game...My point was that if we wish to see this form of behavior removed from the game at the NHL level - we may as well go ahead, and eliminate checking from the game along with fighting...Many may forget that much of these violent acts begin with what may be deemed a dirty hit from an opponent, and as both GMR, and Nev pointed out to me - Orpik has a habit of injuring opponents with questionable body checks, and is generally not well liked.


Long story short - eliminating fighting from the game won't keep it 'clean' to a level that some would prefer; as you rightfully pointed out - the speed of todays game combined with physical play via checking will most likely cause some injuries, and heated exchanges between opponents...I myself don't mind seeing these sorts of rivalries form since IMHO it creates some of the best hockey to watch (Red Wings vs Avalanche anyone?).


Well - that's my take on that.

#2442999 Tomas Hertl

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 10 October 2013 - 02:34 PM

Just saw this quote from Jumbo Joe regarding Hertl... :lol:
Joe Thornton would unzip his pants if he scored four goals
Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said:
“Shut up, have you ever played the game?”
When the press turned his way, he then added:
“I’d have my cock out if I scored four goals. I’d have my cock out, stroking it.”

Wait. He is 19? I thought they had to be 25 to be in NHL? That must be a red wing only rule.

#2439290 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

These threads always pop up and then completely disappear when Bertuzzi wins a couple of shootout games or beats somebody up. Like it or not he's staying, personally I like it.

#2439287 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by wingslionstigers on 27 September 2013 - 10:01 AM

Bertuzzi is the only player in the world that can compete in the NHL with one hand on his stick. Do you see Crosby walking people one handed? No. I believe Bert plays with this style as it frees an arm up so he can efficiently drop elbows to somebody's nose if needed.

If I was going to keep any of these older guys it would be Bert. He is a pretty smart passer and a big body who will still get physical when needed. You need a guy or two on a roster that you can plug in anywhere to make ends meet and hes a good guy for the job. Cleary and Sammy is who needs to go.

#2430617 Ryan Miller Fire Sale

Posted by 55fan on 18 July 2013 - 06:50 AM

Maybe send the glut of "spare forwards" to Buffalo in exchange? I'm down.

To Detroit: Ryan Miller


To Buffalo: Jonas Gustavsson,  Cory Emmerton, Drew Miller, Mikael Samuelsson, Ville Leino, and an autographed copy of "How I Finally Won af****** Cup" by Dominik Hasek


Then when they remind us that we no longer have Leino and they do, we'll laugh maniacally.
