Yes, AV has said he does not like it when other teams run up the score. Yes, AV has run up the score himself. However, it is pretty clear that AV did not intend to run up the score.. How else do you explain Kesler playing 15:29, Henrik playing 14:54, and Daniel playing 14:42? If Peckham didn't give Samuelsson an extra shot or if Hemsky took a clean hit from Glass like a man, then no, the first unit would not have been sent out there.

Or maybe AV is just inflating our PP%?

Ah, the 28th place team in the NHL lost tonight because they had a few injured players. Surely if those 4 were in the line up they would have pasted the hapless Canucks. Check mate.

To answer the thread title, I don't think teams do it enough.

Unless you have a game the next day, I rather find it disrespectful to the paying customers shelling out often unreasonable amounts of money to stop playing the game before the last 5 minutes or so.

Sure, try out things and give role players a chance to shine and all, but don't just sit back for fear of 'rubbing it in'.
It is pro-sports. If you're getting abused chances are you deserve it.

Canucks were playing their 3rd and 4th line on the PP late in the 3rd. Peckham, Hemsky and the Oilers decided to be ****'s about it so AV put the first unit on for 9 seconds (resulting in a goal) then returned to 3rd and 4th liners.

Say what you want, it really shut the Oilers up.

When it happens to my team, I hate it, but that's just because my team is getting blown out. In general, I don't mind it. The other team is an NHL team, too. They should stop it. If they really don't like it, then goon it up, like when Roberts beat the crap out of Eager.

who knows? d-pairings are messed up without whitney, eberle and hall have chemistry, horcoff would have won some faceoffs,etc.

So simply, with already a huge lead, don't go all out to score more, but if the opportunites are there why not take them.
Team Canada just gave up 5 goals in the 3rd and lost the gold medal. The Oilers once blew a 5-0 lead going into the 3rd against the Kings and lost in OT. And that was with Gretzky and co. I'm sure there are many other examples. Point is, the game's not over until its over. Why let up? Ever?

A tennis ball? We used one of those blue rubber balls. They bounced way faster and you can hit them a lot harder.

It definately wouldn't have been 6-1.

The Canucks are not God's gift to hockey. The Oilers, though near the bottom of the standings, are still an NHL team. I wish some fans would realize this.

I've never understood why coaches get mad because the other team is so called *running up the score*. Like the other team has no choice but to get scored on haha. It's hilarious. It's the job of the coach to prevent the other team from scoring, you can't do that then that's your fault. The other team shouldn't have to relax or stop trying because of a coach's ineptness.

I have no idea why there is this strong North American mentality that it is unsportsmanlike to run up the score. Especially in a professional sporting situation, nothing but 100% effort should be expected at all times from everyone on the ice/field/court/pool of jelly, from start to finish, regardless of what the score is. If the other team doesn't like it, then they need to do something about it.

I don't have any issue with teams deciding to take stars out of the game once the game is effectively wrapped up, I don't see that as letting up, that's making a tactical choice for the future games. But the people who are in the game need to be giving it everything regardless of whether it's 1-0 or 8-0

Im fine with a team running up the score. If the other team doesnt like it, they could always just try a little harder to stop you from scoring.
IMO, no matter what the score is, a coach should never, ever call off the dogs.

I have no problem with "running up the score." All these guys are paid well and are supposed to be professionals. It's a 60 minute game, and I don't care if its 2-1, or 7-1, put whoever you want on the ice. getting goals is always a confidence booster for any player, and if the opposing players are mad about the score, they can play harder and not let em score another one.

I'm a huge canucks fan and I was not impressed when Vigneault was bitter about Joel Quenville putting out his top guys on a PP when the score was 6-1 or 7-1. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that in my opinion, and people need to stop whining about it.

As a fan I could care less.
As a poolie I like it.
As a coach I would sometimes like it and sometimes not, depending on the circumstances.
And as an owner I'd also not care either way because I'd be more concerned with all my expensive toys.

Don't, or the opposing goalie may demand a trade to one of your rivals.

If goal differential plays any role, go crazy..

If not, stop at 10...because at that point, it's not fair...

That's the way I like it..

Stumbled upon this while watching an old clip on youtube: Coaches Corner From Gretzky's Last Game. At 4:44 Don Cherry starts to talk about running up the score (completely unrelated to Gretzky), I though somebody might be interested to hear his view on this. Personally I wasn't overly convinced. His argument is just to avoid embarrassing the opposing team. Bohoo, they are all professional athletes yo!
