2014 NHL Playoffs - Page 4

post #55 of 243

I don't really want to make this a Matt Cooke thread, but what did you guys think about the Erik Karlsson injury last year?

He might have gotten away with one. Either way I still hope he's out for a lonnnnng long time.

He's not called Slewfoot Subban for nothing.

Freak accident. Hockey play that happens thousands of times a year, tens of times a game. That's why players wear kevlar socks.

 

P.S. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nhl/news/20130214/erik-karlsson-injury-matt-cooke/ has this block of text: "You have to distinguish that move from something that is truly nefarious: when one player kicks the skates out from under another. That's called slew-footing. Here's an example from a Montreal-Pittsburgh game last season: P.K. Subban doing it to Chris Kunitz." That ties these two posts together.

 

 

​P.P.S. Okay, seriously, this thread isn't about Cooke, so let's wrap up the Cooke and/or "dirty player" talk here soon. Lots of playoff hockey still to be played.

As a HABS (and PK) fan it pains me to admit that Erik's right on that count but I believe that kind of play is in Subban's past as I believe even his team mates have let him know that it's a bush league move that a player of his caliber should never stoop to.

I haven't watched a ton of games this year but I haven't seen Subban pull that move all season. I hope he's grown out if it.

I hope so too. He's a skilled player that doesn't need to be a moron. Just like I keep saying about James Neal, the moron. Five-cent brain on a five-million-dollar skill set.

To continue our discussion about Subban and to bring this thread back on topic, what did you think of this play last game?

Is it just me, or is it ironic that the guy called "Slewfoot Subban" got free from his defender on that play thanks to a "cheapshot slew'foot'," if you will, from .... the net? ;-)

Subban's a stud. They don't just hand out Norris trophies to anyone. He'll only get better too, he's not even close to his prime IMO.

Cooke suspended 7 games.

@iacas they used his suspension history as a factor despite him not being considered a repeat offender.

Yeah. Never said they couldn't consider it. Just that it wasn't an automatic suspension, fine, etc. due to not being a "repeat offender" by the rules.

7 sounds about right.

This Pittsburgh Columbus is insane!

Game 1: Columbus up 3-1, Pittsburgh wins 4-3
Game 2: Pittsburgh up 3-1, Columbus wins 4-3
Game 3: Columbus up 3-1, Pittsburgh wins 4-3
Game 4: Pittsburgh up 3-0, Columbus wins 4-3

Never really considered that Columbus would be a threat to Pittsburg. Fleury is HUGELY overrated. Could be an epic upset in the making.

He stopped 42 of 46 shots, and the first two that went in that night were flukey stuff. Same for some of the other goals - he had no chance. The other OT game winner they had three chances while four Pens just stood there. The third went in.

 

He hasn't stolen any games or anything, but he's been the stronger of the two goalies by far.

 

You haven't watched the Pens all year. Or the past few years. This was completely foreseeable. In fact, there are a large contingent of Pens fans who hope they lose the next two so that things can be gutted a bit. They will probably (barely) escape this series, but they won't make it past the Rangers.

 

Matt, the bandwagon's got another five days or so. Enjoy it while you can. Columbus can be this year's Islanders.

I was basing my assessment on overall career, not just this series. He's benefited from playing behind one of the best offences in the league.

I find hokey interesting to watch from time to time, but don't watch it enough to really know much about it. Since a team from Columbus is in the playoffs, why not root them :-D. I kinda feel obligated to do so.

Eh, you still don't watch the Pens much during the regular season. He's been one of the best there, and not just because of the offense. And he's had some truly crap years in the playoffs, including the last four, but not this year.

I agree that Columbus has a hokey team.

All I know is that Fleury was partly responsible for the last two goals of the game last night. He made a terrible play for the game-tying goal and the OT winner should have never gone in. I don't care if you make 70 saves, just don't give up weak goals when it matters.
