No, you can put as many people on the ice as you want your just going to get a penalty for it, that's the two many men. I'm not sure who the random guy is but a player for Montreal made a clean hit. Why don't we say that the guy who didn't get off in time was the extra man and Blunden should have been on the ice.
He got on the ice as the extra man and just leveled someone. If that's legal there's a huge problem with this league.
there were 6 people on the ice. blunden was the 6th man and one who hit dubinsky. i don't know what the rule is if the extra man hits somebody but it definitely should have been a PP for the rangers for too many men.
Maybe you get the players right (Blunden hit Dubinsky), check the other thread that was already made about it, and THEN post it. Seriously there is a Habs GDT where you can do all the refs *****ing and whining, no need to make it redundant here.
Last I checked there was no rules against starting a topic on complaining about referees. Nor is this thread the same as the other one, which was more about the ejection of two certain players rather than the referees.
You complaining about another poster complaining is sure ironic.
For the record, I think it's a dumb rule but apparently it does exist:
46.7 Fighting After the Original Altercation - A game misconduct penalty shall be imposed on any player who is assessed a major penalty for fighting after the original altercation has started.
Notwithstanding this rule, at the discretion of the Referee, the automatic game misconduct penalty may be waived for a player or goalkeeper in the altercation if the opposing player was clearly the instigator of the altercation.
I don't like the rule either, especially if the fights are simultaneous. If players wait until another fight is done, I see the application. However, in the heat of the moment players may not know/care if another fight is ongoing.
He was the 6th man on the ice and interfered with the play. He had no right to join the play, let alone level someone who wasn't expecting it. Pretty sure that's going to be the rational that you hear from the league, too. I don't see how you think someone should just be allowed to jump onto the ice and clock someone and only have a too many men call be the end result.
Are you really gonna quote every single person who doesn't like the call and argue the exact same point every time?
I was fine with all the calls but the interference... I don't get it. And yes Jonathan, I understand your point of view.
