Your argument is that players can't make decisions in a second--which is utterly nonesense. If you have experience, please use it.

Make up your mind.

What a joke, boys. Can we just call this done, this is a waste. Rebel and Cody, you guys don't think players can make deliberate dexterous decisions and actions in a second, we can disagree.... Hollywood, you just can't make up your mind, so I can't agree or disagree. There's nothing left to say.

Shattenkirk had never scored a power play goal in the playoffs before that.

I just thought it a touch odd Niskanen, after the hit, never looks down at Crosby, which is an instinctual thing to do, and looks like he's trying as hard as possible to not look down for even a split second, just staring blankly ahead pretending to be ultra-focused on the play like nothing happened. He knew he hit him up high, whatever went into his mind before. He was tied up with him too afterwards and had to step over him.

So, what are the first rumors out there from Pittsburgh about Crosby?

How on earth can you think that is an intentional hit to the head? I'd venture to guess its pretty difficult to aim for someone's heading while they are falling down and hit them in the head with the stick.

It wasnt but its the NHL golden boy. So niskanen will get 50 games cause in the NHL you're not allowed to hit the golden boy.


All I gotta say is karma is a *****. I'll never wish injury upon anyone but I'll never forget what a piece of garbage Crosby is. I'll never forget the broken wrist he has given players with his slashes.

Barstool tweeted it out tonight. I thought it was funny.

I can almost say for sure that sign is directed at Jamie Koharski. Anyone who watched AHL hockey knows how bad he is.

As said in previous thread, you quoted and questioned my opinion, not the other way around, we both agreed to disagree and you were left out of it until a page later you decided to comment on my same opinion again. I didn't bring you back in, you brought yourself into it for the second time--just to clear that up.

It's just part of the game and most games for the matter, every single player in competition does little things like this. Sometimes you get away with it, sometimes you don't. You're pointing out one of many ways that human beings in general act when they try to get away with anything. It's not even a big deal, the game, like anything is littered with it, competitors are trying to win. No surprises here. If I were Niskanen, I'm likely making the same decision.

I need two things, please.

1. Next season, the first time (and every time after that) I complain about Mr. David Hakstol's dead-cow blank stare and lack of emotion, I would appreciate if someone would gently whisper the following three words in italics:

Mike. ****ing. Sullivan.

2. If it's not too much trouble, could someone please explain to me how it came to pass that when I turned on the TSN broadcast - THE TSN BROADCAST - I was forced to endure Bob m***erf***ing Cole? Anyone? For ****'s blind and blessed sake.

I can't even with this sack of ****ing ... whatever. ****!

Intentional or not, there should be no sympathy for Crosby. He is a dirty player (see what he did to Ryan oreilly) and the league has been protecting him from actually paying for those plays. I had said a high hit on Crosby would make the Penguins lose their minds and that's exactly what happened. If Crosby comes back, I would have some one punch him in the face to set them off again.

I don't watch any Pens games, but it doesn't sound like teams really go after him. I get it could be tough and it may take you off your game a bit, but if you can make his life pretty miserable early, it could give you a chance, if you leave him alone, he's going to kill you.

TSN doesn't have the rights, so all you got was the Sportsnet feed

They're all pretty bad. Dejan Kovacevic, who is inherently awful, wrote a column about whether or not Washington really wants to win that way.

That's what I meant, Sportsnet. But why didn't they have one of their own pairs do it?

EDIT: Nevermind, I have completely lost it - I am thinking of someone else, and was the whole time I was watching

did anyone catch Keith Jones trying to compare the play Crosby was injured to Eric lindros getting laid out by Stevens? thought it was one of the dumbest comments of the night. the two plays were not similar at all. stevens was clearly going for the kill, while niskanen clearly wasn't trying to decapitate Crosby. it was just an unfortunate play. I believe niskanen was going to cross check him but in the hip or lower part of the body which goes on all game long in that area and is very rarely called. just unfortunate that sid was falling and it ended up hitting him in the head. right call on the ice was made since it was a cross check that made head contact and injured the player but there's just no way that niskanen was going for that outcome intentionally. for that reason he shouldn't get any other supplemental discipline. a fine at most if the league wants to appease pitt.

I have no doubt that Niskanen raised his stick to block Crosby's falling body on purpose. I doubt he planned on hitting him in the head to boot.
