Quote from: TheMightyOdin on Yesterday at 08:58:52 PMWas that a good call against Domi? I didn't think so.

I respectfully disagree.  He got in hard on the hards.  Sure it was embellished, but that's going to get called.

Domi's stick seemed twisted in there.
Domi's dropping of his stick and expression after seemed like he knew it.

Matt Murray won but gave up 5 goals on 27 shots (3 while Marlies PKing). Stopped all three shootout attempts.
That's a good night for a guy who hasn't played for a year.

I know how ridiculous this is going to sound, but if somehow the leafs get out of the first round it wouldn't shock me if we saw Murray in net at some point.

It was a legit penalty. It was a bonehead move on Domi's part.
Brodie f'd that up pretty badly

Quote from: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on April 12, 2024, 10:42:23 PMThanks for that CTB.  Is he worth it?  What I remember when his name popped up is that he is big and good at blocking shots and that's about it.

Who knows. My gut instinct at first was that there almost certainly wasn't anything here. But since then James Mirtle has said a couple of times that he's heard people say there's a good chance he actually plays NHL games at some point next season and presumably those are people who have watched him closely.

To Toronto's credit they've been reasonably successful when it comes to college players in this position. Either in acquiring guys prior to them becoming free agents (like Hyman) or signing them when they do (Moore, Marchmentnot from the college, McMann, Steeves-ish, possibly Rifai). So maybe he can end up being something, even if the upside would likely be quite limited.

That's of course the optimistic take. The pessimistic one would reasonably point out his zero goals and 15 assists through 4 years of college hockey make it incredibly difficult to see a NHL future and any talk about him is more simply because he's 6'7" tall.

I appreciate the response.  You can't teach size.  (You can teach cliches, however, as I've just demonstrated.)

So Cory Cross with less talent?

"Throws one towards the net" is a bit of a stretch.

Somehow Salt Lake City will be in the cup finals next season
Thanks both. I was looking for it in the rule book and lost patience.

The hockey Canada rulebook actually says that you can't stand in the crease prior to the puck entering the crease so I thought the nhl would be the same.
Btw I was genuinely asking that question about the crease, I'm not sure if anyone here would know that.

I just found it odd that the player could stand behind the goalie in the blue paint before the puck has entered the crease. The whole sequence looked odd to me.
So you're allowed to fully stand in the blue paint behind the goalie?
Quote from: CarltonTheBear on April 02, 2024, 08:21:07 AMThe kid 3rd line has an odd night. They were were down 2-9 in the shot attempts and 2-5 in actual shots, that's bad. But they scored on both of their shots, that's good. But they were also on the ice for 2 goals against, that's bad.

Were the 2 goals against the complete stinkers that samsonov let in?
Samsonov has given up 2 pretty shitty goals.
Quote from: Zee on March 30, 2024, 08:33:14 PMOnly the 9th player all time with multiple 60 goal seasons. Guy is unreal

Looking forward to all the comments (not here) that this is no big deal and the 'Toronto centric' media is blowing this out of proportion.

Cool beans
I wonder if Kypreos is going to complain that Ovechkin did a pee wee move holding up his stick like that waiting for the shot the way he whines about Matthew's doing it.
