Hats off to Dan Boyle for keeping his cool. I would have taken some chicklets from the *****.

Sticking up for yourself is not mugging someone. You get hit hard? Hit the guy hard the same way.

This is the problem in the NHL also. You deliver a big hard hit and all of a sudden you have a 3-minute a game thug jumping you.

Was hardly a slew foot. I liked the fact he stuck up for himself.

If it's OV slewfooting Boyle you would not be saying this.

Semin had a clean hit.

Boyle retaliated with a very dangerous move that people have been chastising players for the past few years.

No big deal.

The Semin hit was perfectly clean and shouldn't have been a penalty.
Boyle's slewfoot deserved 2 minutes, 4 minutes max.

I'd have given him 5.

This is what happens when you can't fight, IMO.

It wasn't necessary but you don't back down when someone takes a shot at you at the end of a blowout. I've been on both ends of a game such as this and I've stuck up for myself and been cheap shot at the same time.

As much as people want to deny it it's part of the game. People just dont realize because in the NHL they stick up for themselves by fighting.
Sticking up for yourself is fine. Just be a man and don't attack someone from behind with one of the dirtiest things you can do.

I can't believe some of you people! In what way is this justified? Semin laid a hard, clean check on Boyle. Boyle came back with a dirty slew foot from behind. Uncalled for.

Boyle should be suspended. You want to know WHY a slew foots are not allowed? Because they're ****ING DANGEROUS. Boyle placed is hand on Semin's chest, placing torque on his upper half, while simultaneously kicking Semin's feet out from under him, creating more torque in the same circular direction. This results in Semin's head accelerating dangerously fast toward the ice. This is how people get their skulls broken in. Semin could have easily lost consciousness.

It's a dirty, classless move. The gall of some of you people to defend his actions "because this is hockey." If the shoe were on the other ****ing foot, you'd all be screaming MURDER, BLOODY MURDER.

Classless.

Dirty plays happen in hockey, that doesn't make it right, genius. Boyle is just a ***** and was upset over a clean hit.

Boyle looked like a little *****. If he hurt Semin with that weak retaliation then it would be a whole different story.

Semin's hit was dirty because it happened. Thats the extent of that. He was supposed to have quit. Finishing a check and showing a little passion makes him dirty.

A slew foot is a cheap shot. A retaliatory cheap shot has to be taken as an intent to injure. Thats what you do with a slew foot afterall unless you are fighting for the puck which was nowhere near them.

It was bush league. For many TC fans they are straight up ok with it being bush league.
Just remember you felt that way when you of your guys Olympics or NHL ends up on the receiving end of the bush league stuff.

so checking someone = "taking a shot"

Four goal game with three minutes to go? It's that to go along with taking a run at a guy in a spot like that. You can try to be purist about it all you want but you're a fool if you believe that there aren't unwritten rules about taking shots like Semin did.

A slew-foot is not self-defense. Slew-foot would be classed under intent to injure. You want payback, crush him along the boards. Catch him with his head down and deliver a clean but hard hit.

Don't slew-foot a guy from behind while pushing his chest down at the same time. Extremely dangerous. For the most part, a player that's on the receiving end has no way of defending himself from the fall.

This has nothing to do with the team the player was on. If Semin did that, I would call him out on it just as I am Boyle. Take off the homer-glasses for once this tourney...

That was about as clear a slewfoot as you'll ever see.

Who really cares? Canada just stomped the so called most dangerous team in the tournament. They outshot them 42-28. Out-hit them by a wide margin. Out-skated them. Out-skilled them and out scored them by a wide margin.

As for Boyle and Semin.... Who cares??? LOL

He was pissed off that he got drilled so he retaliated. Lets not pretend this is anything other than that.
Right, players never go after players who throw big hits at them in the end of a blow-out

Semin's hit was mariginal, borderline boarding.

Boyle was a classic, intentional and retaliatory slewfoot that, by the letter of IIHF law, should have been a match penalty and was called incorrectly. I don't care that he was pissed - that is not part of the game. It should be a game, but the IIHF is too spineless to suspend a Canadian at a tournament in Canada (please let me be wrong, IIHF).

Well, one resulted in the end of the victim's career and criminal assault charges being brought against the perpetrator......and the other was a 2-minute minor penalty

Hmmm.......yeah those are totally the same things......

......and of course by "same" I mean "so completely different that the mere mention of them together in the same sentence is so ludicrous that men in white jackets would question your sanity."

Watch out U.S. Were here to take back what is ours and hoping you guys make it to the finals for we can avenge that lost.If Canada plays the next two games like tonight there's no way we don't win gold. See you in the finals.If your luckey enough to get by Finland.
Did Volchenkov sneak up behind Staal and hit him when he was nowhere near the play? Did he do it intentionally to get revenge?
