But think about it...you don't throw a hit to make nice. You throw it to hurt. If the kid keeps his head up, he is hurt, but he is also out the next shift with a new appreciation of Canadian bodychecking, and maybe being a man and looking for a bit of redemption. Because he makes a mistake and refuses to protect himself, he got himself injured.

It seems simple. I think it is for most hockey purists like myself.
^^^ Exactly this.

IIHF is looking like a semi-contact friendly beer league...

I'm just going to go ahead and point out that the point of "check" is supposed to be to separate a player from the puck. Not to "hurt".

It may be fine with you, but it isn't hockey.

Of course it is, but you don't throw a hit at half force and hope it knocks him off the puck. You throw a hit with all your weight and make sure you knock him off the puck.

Then high level hockey isn't for you.

Check your local arena for youth hockey with a reasonable amount of contact- not too much, wouldn't want you to get rattled.

You hit to hurt- not to injure, but to hurt. To hurt enough that next time you fore check, they cough up the puck and you capitalize. To hurt enough that when they enter your zone, they don't cut across the ice to get a shot in the slot. You hit to hurt, so they don't try long breakaway passes. You keep it clean, but you get in their head and establish fear/doubt so they're off their game.

Semi-contact is meant to rub someone off the puck. That's not high level hockey. That's pond hockey. That's not what I pay to watch.

Pffft. I'm just gonna drop this here as one example among, well, a LOT more, showing how much physicality and "chippiness" was involved along the journey to that Canada Cup gold:

If I say Alexander Ovechkin is not a goal scorer and show a bunch of videos where he does not score. Is that a fair video?

I would bet almost any coach around the world would want their forechecker closing the distance that quickly and pressuring the defense to make a play like what happened (unless the team is in purely defenesive positioning...i.e. pk, protecting a lead, trapping style team play etc.)


You see this play a hundred times a game and nothing happens because the defensman has his head up and/or anticipates contact so nothing happens. Usually resulting with both players bouncing off eachother or tangled on the boards.

pssst, take a peek at my user name...its what he shoulda done....Like Don Cherry says in Rock em Sock em 3 "take a peek, it doesn't mean your chicken"

How would him misspelling words in his head prevent him from getting hurt

Context is everything. The fact is that's the way the game was called and played back then. Both teams were as physical and chippy back then, as you can tell by watching the full games, despite what the selective editing by the person who made the video you posted tries to fool you into believing.

Well said. These are things that people who have never been involved in high-level hockey do not realize.

uuummmm, say the words in his head?

I was not recommending him to to say anything in his head, I was saying he should do that action, as it get your eyes off the ice and look around.

(not suer wht you tink is spelled wrong...... but I wrote what I meant and my user name is indeed what it is meant to be..... pointing out a spelling mistake your rebuttal is outstanding and I must bow out of this so called discussion..)

McSorley, Semenko and McClelland say hi. In fact, 99 was smart enough to insist on Marty coming along for the ride to LA.

They were there more to ensure no cheap shots or post whistle ******** than to prevent Gretz from ever getting hit. Gretzky was talented enough to avoid getting cranked.

I am proud to say I received a concussion taking a suicide pass.

Know why?

Well...

I can't remember...

But If I did?!

You bet I'd have a lesson to tell all of you!

I think that the fact that the most famous hit taken by Gretzky from his Oiler days (by Bill McCreary of all people) resulted in nothing but a few words to the offending player by the Oilers proves this.

The youtube of that hit:



Don't see no Oiler players going after him there.

ETA: McCreary had 4 minutes in penalties in his entire career, so there were no fights later in the game, either.

The only time I was a Devils fan was in 2001-2002, when Larry Robinson coached them. Or whenever they play the Rangers

But here we are talking KIDS. They don't anticipate, especially not coming from European youth championships.

To Beaker: I'm fine with pro-hockey becoming more like pond hockey. If every forward turns into Datsyuk and every defenseman into Lidstrom, who can take a puck away from you without as much as touching you, hockey will benefit greatly, IMHO.

If you do not believe that those players were a deterrent then we should just stop talking about it. As a guy who was a pr*** when he played hockey, I know I was always much more behaved against teams that had a coule of guys that might send me to the dentist.
