The problem with the play is that it was a gutless way to try to shake up a rookie goaltender. That's the way our centres play, putting up some snow is easier than playing hard and making it difficult for the goalie to track the puck.
It's funny you say that because I watched the philly vs Pitts game and parts of the Ottawa vs Wpg game and I saw it happen 3 times in those games - none of those being called. If it was always called, yes I'd say that Pleks was dumb.. But it's never called. Also, even though Scrivens had it for a while the whistle wasn't blown until Pleks was right there. If the leafs would've taken offense to it, Komisarek would've got in Plek's face, but he didn't.

Again, not trying to excuse what he did, but 99 times out of 100 that's a non call.
