Yeah, even if they can show that the Saints never used or gained a benefit from this system (what are the chances of that), Loomis has to be fired after this one.

Why?  Belicheat didn't get fired for stealing signals using technology.  Why should Loomis be fired for stealing coaching info using technology?  slywink

What the fuck was Seguin doing wearing that big chain link around his neck? (post game interview)

It's given by the team to a player after every win in the playoffs. Last year it was some old beat up jacket bought on EBay, this time it's ridiculous chain link necklace. It's a team unity thing I think.

Also, back to back game days followed by a two day layoff before a Game 7. Eff you NBC.
Screw those really boring awards.  After a Blues win, the players vote and hand out this wonderful award to someone:

My thoughts today on the Blues/Kings series:  Whoever wins will lose the next round... it's going to be that brutal and could well go seven games (and multiple OTs).  Attrition is going to destroy both teams.

Also since both teams basically play the same defensive shell/counterattack, the series is going to come down to special teams execution.  LA might have a slight early advantage here given that the Blues got to play a terrible, terrible PK team in San Jose and could be rusty in facing an actual good PK for the first game or so against LA.  That's grasping at straws though... realistically both teams are pretty even.

Also due to the play styles, if there are no penalties called these games will be as boring as a 90s Devils series.

The same could be said of the Nashville/Phoenix series.  Both teams have outstanding goaltending and play solid defensively.  I would not be surprised to see both series go 7 games.  The only time LA soundly defeated the Blues this season was before Hitchcock took over and Halak was playing like ass back in October.  The next 3 games were split - 1-1-1 and were all decided by 1 goal.

Wow sloppy play in OT cost the caps the game. Game 7 Inc!!

They did that repeatedly throughout the game - trying to force pucks along the boards at the blueline and just giving them away.  Washington had 14 giveaways and most of those were right at their own blueline.  Interestingly, when the Caps worked on moving the puck up through the middle, where most teams won't go, they had success breaking out and getting into the Boston zone.  They just kept trying to break out along the boards, instead, and kept on turning it over.

Feel a little bad for the Sharks.  Niemi gives up one bad rebound the entire game and the Blues capitalized on it.  The Sharks had shut down the Blues forwards for most of the game and were actually winning both the offensive and defensive zone faceoffs which was preventing the Blues from doing anything for most of the 2nd period and the first 10 minutes of the 3rd period.  Sharks were the better team for most of Game 5, yet still lost - mostly thanks to Elliott not giving up rebounds on quality scoring chances and secondly to Alex Pietrangelo who kept blocking passes which would likely have been easy one-timer goals if the passes had gotten past him.

Can anyone tell me why the hell Matt Cooke got ejected last night?  From what I could see, he held Kubina's stick, then got crosschecked twice, went to get up, got crosschecked again, tried getting up again and got crosschecked yet again, then somehow gets tossed.

Matt Cooke is not exactly Miss Innocent, so they were just preventing a potential rage mode.
This year he is. He's been, by and large, above reproach when it comes to anything other than the usual 2-minute hockey stuff (and even that's much declined).


I agree totally, but the refs also know the history, and they made it very clear they were in charge.

They did make it very clear that they were in charge, and if Cooke had done anything even borderline, I would have looked right past but really...This is why he got tossed?
Yeah, the refs were clearly in charge of throwing a guy out for getting beat on.  Idiocy.  That's the kind of officiating that keeps refs from doing future playoff series.  History matters when a guy actually does something.

Are you surprised though? They look exactly like the same slow, unskilled, poorly schemed team that coughed and wheezed their way into the playoffs. Plus they had to play the one team that practically owned them during the season. The window of opportunity with the current roster has finally closed, in my opinion. It's time to start an overhaul. I'd even argue that management needs to be cleaned out because there isn't much in the minors to give us hope. There isn't enough emphasis organizationally on speed and offensive skills. Doug Wilson needs to reinvent the team in a hurry, assuming ownership thinks they need to start fresh at the top.

So being 4-0 against a team is only "practically" owning them?  slywink  I'd say the Blues completely owned them considering the Sharks were outscored 11-3 in those 4 games and were shutout twice.

The issues for the Sharks in the playoffs - PK sucks and they are losing the offensive and defensive zone faceoffs way too often.  Through the 1st two periods in game 3, the Blues were winning 80+% of offensive and defensive zone draws.  Sharks are winning the neutral ice faceoffs, but those are not nearly as important.  Yes, that number dropped, because Thornton finally started winning draws in the 3rd period, but that was too little, too late.  Heck, if Elliott doesn't mis-handle that puck at the end of the 3rd period, the Sharks likely would have been shutout again.

FYI - leo - I hope facts don't get in the way of your opinion that Halak was supposedly diving in Game 2, since he didn't even dress for Game 3 and is listed as day-to-day.  Yeah, the Blues current backup is Jake Allen who has never played a single NHL game.

I was surprised the Sharks did not take any runs at Elliott at all, considering they weren't afraid to deliver blatant head shots in Game 2.  Of course, paying for it at the end of Game 2 might have explained why they would not go after Elliott.  slywink

VRWC

Like I said - at least the Weber-Zetteberg incident got reviewed.  The two blatant hits to head of Blues players last night, one of which cracked MacDonald's helmet and both of which NHL Network - not me - indicated should be reviewed, are not even being reviewed.

It's not a VRWC.   It's a blatant bias by an ex-Blues player (kicked off the team/traded for not being a team player) who has not reviewed a single incident involving a hit to the head of a Blues player in the regular season or the playoffs - in spite of the number of actual hits which should have been reviewed.

Independent, neutral source saying the hits should be reviewed, but it is supposedly just my bias.   Roll Eyes

Eh, I don't have much of a problem with that. It was a smart play by Adams honestly. I would not want my top player going against Hartnell.

If that crap for the hit on Couturier winds up being reviewed..... I am going to seriously wonder why Burns elbow to the back of Nichols head plus the charge to MacDonald's head by Galliardi which cracked MacDonald's helmet were not deemed worthy of review at all by Mr. Shanahan - who seems to be "too busy" to review head shots thanks to the Rangers-Senators antics.  As the man who is supposed to review ALL incidents, Shanahan choosing not to review blatant head shots is sending the wrong message.  Hell, even NHL Tonight said those two "hits" by Burns and Galliardi should be expecting a review.  Why aren't they??? 

Again - this is probably my supposed bias, but when the NHL Network is saying they should be reviewed and the official supposedly in charge of
"player safety" does nothing - it raises serious doubts and creates a bias.  How many hits to Blues players heads have been reviewed this season???  That's right.... NONE!!!!  But this is just my supposed bias even though a completely neutral network with no bias says the hits should be reviewed then are not..  Shanahan gets paid to review and protect ALL players.  He sure as (Frank!) is not doing his job right now.

Burns elbow to the back of the head of Nichols is blatant attempt to injure - but it's clearly not review worthy to the guy who the Blues traded/kicked off the team for sleeping with a teammates wife when he was a St Louis Blue.  But, of course, he has no bias whatsoever. 

At least the Wings/Preds incident got reviewed.....  Roll Eyes

Franzen punching Backes and drawing blood well after 2nd period play has ended.  But tihs is not a penalty, supposedly.  I think all future opponents should be allowed to punch Franzen square in the face after the whistle has gone and he not be allowed to retaliate.  No penalties should be assessed.  Then - this is a perfectly legal play.

But I am supposedly just making this shit up.  Even the NBC announcers were wondering why there was no call on Franzen.

LOL, I see what you did there.

FYI - none of the Blues announcers were part of the NBC crew for this game.  It was Emrick, Olczyk, and McGuire.  None have a damn thing to do with the Blues.  Olzcyk spent 90% of the game fellating the Wings even when they were giving up a shortie and not getting any shots on a major power play.

He was already under contract and the Predators still had his rights.  It's not like signing a FA after the deadline.  Perfectly legal.

To me, it's no different than teams getting college kids to join their teams when the college season ends.  They weren't under contract before the trade deadline, but are eligible to play through the playoffs still.

And here will come - it wasn't an elbow, he just skated through, and Vorackek shouldn't have put himself in that position.  All three of those "reasons" apply to the Cole hit on Abdelkader, but Cole was still suspended.

Hilarious, but unsurprising, that you can't tell the difference between those two hits.

It's kind of sad that a) I found the *real* video of the hit, and b) Theo thinks a hit where Sobotka put himself in a bad position is suspension worthy.

Yet when someone can go anywhere along the boards and a defenseman puts his shoulder square into that guys head it is perfectly ok.  What is your team again, pr0ner?   I hope your team loses 3 or more players to concussions during the playoff stretch, too, while head hits continue to not be enforced equally around the NHL.  (yes, the Blues have 2 forwards and a defenseman out right now for concussions).  But, apparently, you don't care if players get heads slammed into the boards by shoulders and the head is the primary point of contact, as you have used as the argument elsewhere.  Next time it happens to your team and nothing happens, I will be here to remind you.  I actually hope it happens in the first round of the playoffs, you lose your best scorer, and come here crying about it when your team is eliminated in the first round.  (If you are Leafs fan, nevermind, because it won't matter anyway).

Let me guess...

Shea Weber won't get suspended for this one on Sobotka

1) Primary contact - Sobotka's head.  His head moves on contact with Weber's body before any other part moves.
2) Weber leaves his feet.

But, of course, it's the Blues, so it won't warrant a suspension, although Ovechkin got 2 games for doing the same thing.

Agree with #1, Disagree with #2.  He didn't leap into the hit.

I also really hope that he doesn't get suspended for it to fuel your comical levels of rage.

Leaping isn't required.  Just leaving your feet is the rule.  And glad my comical levels of rage amuse you.  I hope it happens to one of your players and they wind up missing 90+ games (like David Perron) while the NHL only pays lip service protecting your team.  See the Warren Peters joke of a suspension as an example.

Uhhh... I just checked the timestamp on this video.  You want a suspension from a hit in 2010?  Or does Brendan Shanahan have access to Doc Brown's DeLorean?

Really... going back ONE SEASON and referencing a hit which was one of the reasons for the supposed emphasis on protecting players from head hits THIS SEASON is going back too far?????  Nice.....

Seriously... I hope one of your opponents knocks out Carter for the next 90 games and is not punished at all - even with the supposed current emphasis - which has not seemed to exist when Blues players get hit in the head - other than a lame 1 game suspension for a RETALIATOR cross-check to the head.  Not a flow of play hit - those were 2 game suspensions for Blues players - but a RETALIATOR cross-check to the head is only a 1-game suspension?????

RIIIIGGGHHHHHtTT!!!!

Looking forward to seeing one of your guys made useless for a year and half and seeing your reaction when nothing happens.

Yes, that was then.  But when nothing significant is happening NOW for hits to the head, that reference still matters.

All I see is a propaganda film by the government to remind us that we NEED to continue to spend millions on our military because, hey terrorists are in YOUR neighborhood.  If it is a "documentary" then call it one and don't try to pretend it is something else.

I am all for "we need really cool and expensive military shit" but, can't we just take a little of that and take care of our own country first- AND there are no terrorists in my neighborhood- I know 'cause I checked!!

Try talking to someone in the military who has to wait MONTHS for parts to fix current equipment - because the money is not there.  And it's not "expensive" military shit.  It's simple things like resistors, transistors and the small components that make the bigger more expensive things work.  Guess what happens when that old stuff that can't be fixed is not fixed?  Yep - spend more money on more expensive things.  But that's what our current CinC seems to think is the more appropriate answer while cutting, cutting, and cutting some more.

The military is being chopped to 1/3 of it's current size while half the f'in country doesn't pay taxes and people sit on their ass protesting about not being given enough, instead of actually trying to earn it.  And this lays at the feet of someone who is busy apologizing to enemies while those enemies shoot our soldiers.  But... that's politics.

Theo probably hit the ceiling with happiness.  icon_lol

Guess it's time to start a new one.

Seeing as it ended at 12 regulation games like the 20 game streaks before it, yes, I did.  slywink

Peters was suspended for just today's game against Boston for his crosscheck to the head of Backes.

Which is a joke.  Viciously cross-check someone in the side of the head and only sit for one game.  Must be because it was a Blues player who got hit.  Put a Red Wings Jersey on Backes and Peters would have gotten 5 games.
