#2501602 Net off the moorings question

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 26 March 2014 - 09:43 AM

The fact is had Smith not made contact with the player skating in the net would not have been dislodged and the puck still goes in for a goal. To me it appeared watching it last night that the contact was pretty minor and Smith made an attempt to move out of the way, but the net doesn't go anywhere if his momentum isn't driving the other player in that direction. 

 

In the moment I was annoyed with it, thought the call was wrong, and I still don't agree with it 100% but I understand why it was called the way it was after watching the replay multiple times. 

 

More importantly, it's done and over with, it's not getting overturned at this point and the call stands. Nothing changes that fact. 

 

People are blaming Smith because it partially is his fault, but take him out of the equation, people are still pissed at Smith for not sticking to and covering his man as the goal is scored anyway. It's a lose lose situation for a defender. I'm more irritated with Howard's rebound control lately.

What about breaking up the vets line? I know we dont want to jinx the kid line but I think it's safe to say Nyquist will score wherever he plays and Sheahan and Tatar will work just as good with Alfie on the wing.

I would entertaining trying the top two lines like this

 

Franzen - Legwand - Nyquist

Tatar - Sheahan - Alfredsson

 

It's worth a shot, at least try it for a period and see how it goes. Split up the energy guys with some of the vets and see how they work together. It can't hurt.

 

Maybe toss Helm into that mix also, he wasn't bad tonight.

I did not see any physical play from Callahan. i have read post after post how much he is grinder, tough on the puck. perhaps in the AHL but i did not see it tonight. in no way way shape or form am i contributing his lack of performance to tonight's loss, just an observation. Perhaps i was expecting more based on others postings on how good this kid may be.

If he was anticipated to meet expectations immediately upon call-up he would have been here much earlier. 

 

He's young, he's developing, he isn't NHL ready. He came in just to fill in for injuries, it was his first ever NHL game and he was probably a nervous wreck. I don't expect anything out of him right now.

Good penalty by Legwand

Call me a homer but I see Smith bumping him and then making an effort to skate around him and not continue to shove him into the net. He was covering and sticking with his man, it was Atkinson's momentum that knocked it off I think it would have happened anyway without Smith's help.

Quick = Average

 

Even the best of them blow it in the 3rd.

Not making excuses for Mule, but at least be thankful he went on his tear right after Olympics and Nyquist went on a tear right after Franzen cooled off. Both guys playing like they did when they did is making a big difference in this playoff race right now.

All we've talked about is needing that top 6 scoring winger, last year and the start of this year. I think it's safe to say we got him.

That was me wanting the GooZe, so if Xym doesn't want it, I'll take it.

 

GooZe, you lucky kid.  When you're hot, you're hot as they say.  Just go to the net.

Ahh my mistake. Gooze made a couple of appearances and suddenly we tie it. Coincidence or did Columbus fear the epicness of Gooze?

The Walking Red

You should shoot this as an idea to Flashy as his next GDT, he'd be all over it.

Bernier turning into a true Leaf goalie.

He's on pace to face 70 shots in that game right now, the Leafs are leaving him hung out to dry. 

 

I'm not complaining, the Leafs can lose all they want.
