    Here we go. THIS is the result I was expecting relying on Werner, just one game late. The guy is gonna have McDavid nightmares.

    And now we’re onto 4th string goalie Antoine Bibeau. Goals for everyone!

    Calvert takes a puck to the side of the head, can’t get up, but yeah let’s keep play going. Player safety my ass. Change the rule.

    I was shocked by that, I kind of expected the players to all just stop.

    Not sure what the rule change should be. Maybe add something about "must stop play" for visible blood?

    The rule as it stands now, the refs could have stopped, if they thought the injury was serious. Maybe more training for those specific refs or something, but I've seen that whistle blown in games before, even when the offensive team has a scoring opportunity.

  • JayrichoJayricho Ontario, CanadaRegistered User regular
    Blow the whistle on an obvious head injury? Calvert takes the puck to the head and goes down, writhing in pain. He tried to get up, and went right back to hands and knees. I’m not sure how much more of an obviously serious injury it could be.

    The same thing happened to Zadorov a few games ago when he took one to the face and broke his jaw. He managed to get back up though.

    Anything neck up is an automatic whistle for a start.
    Also, Petterson held his hand up saying "I think this guy is fucked" so that too.

    It was a totally blown call.

    What's weird is that if a goalie loses his mask, it's an automatic whistle so that the goalie doesn't....get hit in the head with a puck.

    But a non-goalie getting hit in the head with a puck? Fine for those refs, I guess.

    Got to say, it was a trip seeing the Canucks back in the black skate uniforms. I was 17 in 1994, so these are the uniforms I grew up wit.

    Like, I know this is Thatcher Demko, but all I could think watching the game seeing a goalie wearing #35 in those jerseys is, "Kay Whitmore!"

    I can't find the button to copy links to tweets in Twitter, currently.

    But I guess the Coyotes unveiled a new banner tonight's against the Kings and hung the banner over the kings dressing room tunnel

    "Most sold out concerts, Taylor Swift"

    Pretty good trolling!

    (The kings have that banner for real in the rafters at their home arena)

    Wouldn’t that be more on whoever owns the Staples Center and not necessarily the Kings (unless they own the building?). I mean, they also share the building with two NBA teams so there are going to be a lot of random banners

    In the Kings case AEG owns both the team and the arena

    One of these people is suspended for 3 games, but you'll never guess who!



    This punishment is an absolute joke. Throw out the people who are punching each other instead.

  • DissociaterDissociater Registered User regular
    So the Leafs haven't held the lead in a game since November 5th. 7 games, and over 400 minutes of hockey. That's real bad.

    i feel like the NHL has failed to consider two people can be wrong at the same time

    unless it’s embellishment and then the guy who embellishes is wrong but also the guy who did nothing gets a penalty too

    The Islanders are on a 15 pt streak tying the club record (a dynasty era one, from a 15 game winning streak). This is the best iteration of the islanders I've ever seen, truly amazing to behold.

    I’m a big fan of the move by the Leafs. Not everything can be blamed on the coach, but Babcock didn’t seem to be interested in trying anything different, even when doing the same thing every night was being proven to not work. He also showed no sign that he was interested in adapting his tactics based on the way the league has been changing, or to suit the roster he had.

    Keefe on the other hand was overdue for a promotion, and the longer he was stuck behind Babcock in line, the more I worried he’d end up as head coach in like, Buffalo or something. He’d won a championship, then came back the next year and still put up an excellent record with a team badly depleted by promotions, trades, and injuries. He even holds the best record in terms of points percentage of any AHL coach with a minimum of 200 games behind the bench. There was absolutely nothing left to prove for him at that level.

    He’s also Dubas’ coach, where Babcock was Lamoriello’s. For better or worse, we’re finally going to see the team play the way Dubas built it to play.

  • MugsleyMugsley Registered User regular
    Hopefully Keefe is able to clear house some, because Hackstol is a cancer for the special teams.

    There is no person currently alive who has coached the Leafs to the second round of the playoffs.

    Detroit media for every year after the salary cap (coincidentally the year Babcock became head coach) Why don't we get the top free agents?

    Datsyukl left (two?) years on his contract. Is still playing in the KHL, even!!

    Lidstrom scored 34 points his last year (but 62 his previous year). Was 42, but obviously had gas left in the tank (and had signed two previous one years deals worth 6.2 million). Maybe he just wanted to retire?

    Zetterberg seemed like he wanted to play out his years, so bad. I think it actualy was his back injury.

    But rumors of Babcock being 'hard to play for' go back a long time before his Toronto years. Makes you think about some of those guys.
