on OTR today, they kept on reaming the Sabres for not sticking up for miller at the time of the hit.

Lucic is a big dude, but someone has to step up.

ive seen it in baseball where if a pitcher throws a ball at an opposing player intentionally, the other teams pitcher will simply do the same. So, they couldve taken a run at Tim Thomas

Rule 42.1, it states: "A goalkeeper is not 'fair game' just because he is outside the goal crease. The appropriate penalty should be assessed in every case where an attacking player makes unnecessary contact with the goalkeeper. However, incidental contact will be permitted when the goalkeeper is in the act of playing the puck outside the goal crease, provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such unnecessary contact."
I don't like the idea of making goalies fair game if they're just coming out to play the puck...what if Byfuglien or Eager charges at Luongo or Schneider when we have the Sedins, Burrows, Edler and Salo on the ice?

We all know Lucic is a BIG guy and is very capable of running guys over (I recall with the Giants he had broke a guys helmet in a fight) nonetheless. The hit was shoulder to shoulder, no intent to injure, as a matter of fact it doesn't look like Lucic saw him till almost the "last minute" (as he was chasing a loose puck) and "put the shoulder into him", Miller's head didn't seem to hit anything (just spun around fast enough to have his helmet to fall off). They're both big boys and the next game will be a good one.

Long but nice read on team chemistry

Quote:
VANCOUVER — It’s not like they sit around the dressing room, hold hands and sing Kumbaya, but the Vancouver Canucks are a tight group.

Tighter than any NHL team Chris Higgins has been a part of.

"It is night and day compared to some other teams I have been on," Higgins said Monday. "I have been on a couple of teams where it was just very cliquey. Outside the rink certain guys just don't hang out with other guys."

The Canucks, Higgins says, are different.

"On this team it seems like you are never in the same group of guys if you are hanging out away from the rink," he says. "And I think that is pretty refreshing to see."

Higgins, who had four previous NHL stops before he was traded to the Canucks at last season's deadline, was immediately struck by the team's chemistry as well as its talent when he joined Vancouver.

He was welcomed with open arms and has seen the same happen to other players who have subsequently joined the team.

"I am a big believer in that the better you get along with guys off the ice the better you are going to play with them," he says. "Some people may disagree with that, but that's the way I feel. You see that personality with this team, guys are willing to spend time away from the rink with each other and really enjoy their time."

IMO Lucic knew damn well what he was doing and made no attempt at all to avoid Miller and fed Shanny and the media a load of bullshit. It reminds me of the bullshit Chara fed everyone about being innocent and not knowing where he or the stantion were when he clobbered Pacioretty. You want to tell me a veteran like Chara hasn't learned the layout of a rival's arena he plays in at least 6 times a season? If you have no spacial awareness or can't anticipate a play, after all these years playing hockey, you should hang your skates up.

To those believing the next Bruins/Sabres game will be interesting to watch because of the prior game, it won't. Seldom do these rematches ever live up to the hype and with the league watching, they will back down. Additionally, the Sabres have no one that can really stand up to the Bruins physically. They showed what they are made of immediately after the hit - nothing.

Nahhh, we don't want Luongo leaving his net and/or playing the puck himself to begin with.



Anyways, considering how this game has evolved, I don't see the reason why goalies have creases anyways.

1. Goalies are protected regardless where they are on the crease.
2. Opposing players are allowed to pass through a crease as long as they don't obstruct the goalie (where goalie protection isn't just limited to the crease anyways)
3. I've seen goals regularly scored by players within the crease anyways; I've watched the NHL for nearly 2 decades and the crease violation is rarely ever used/called.

Shoulder to shoulder. Lucic could've bent his knees, dipped his shoulders or even lunged at Miller, he straightened out and that's the best he could do at that speed. Miller saw him, turned his shoulder and it was clean.

What the media is forgetting to tell everyone was when Leino (BUF) pushed a BOS player into Miller that same game.

I've watched this clip a number of times and this is my opinion.
You can clearly see Lucic STOP skating at 0:05 because he see's miller is going to get the puck first. He is now gliding at this point. He continues to glide into Miller without any indication of avoiding him.

I honestly believe there was enough time to at least try and avoid Miller. Lucic does no such thing. His instincts kick in and it's just easier for him to run into someone as he is used to doing.
But, just because I feel there was enough time to avoid Miller, I think Lucic just reverted to his instincts and plowed Miller down sub-consciously.

I don't think Lucic is a dirty player. This was just a difficult circumstance. Besides, I think running into Miller is safer than trying to avoid Miller. ie. (knee to pad contact) could have blown out his knee if he tried avoiding Miller, etc.


Miller calls Lucic a POS

No one can beat up lucic in a fight not even enforcers who are paid to protect star players... Lucic would toss chara around the ice if they werent team mates.

he is the most feared player in the nhl, 10 years ago was todd bertuzzi

I'm in the camp that thinks Lucic is lucky he didn't get suspended. Under the current rules, goalies are protected and if you hit them like that, you should get more than just a 2-minute minor.

Here's former NHL referee Kerry Fraser's take, from TSN:

I could care less whether or not lucic could have stopped or got out of the way.
I think the real debate is whether or not goalies should are free game when they wander off out their crease. If Miller is going to run out that far from the blue paint, expect to get hit. Goalies are already viewed as untouchables within their crease. 9/10 times a penalty is awarded if a player bumps into the goalie.
I think players should have the green light to bulldoze a goalie if he decides to take a stroll out there. As long as the same rules applied to hitting, apply to goalies, I think it's fine. I mean Lucic and Miller were both going for the puck, Lucic didn't elbow or hit him in any sort of dirty manner imo.
Miller should be upset his players didn't stick up for him.

that hit is right on the borderline. at first i was a firm believer he should have been suspended. but the more i watch it, the less i think so
he had less than a second and less than 10 feet between the time he lifted his head up to the time he hit miller. you could see he was skating 100% to catch the puck and looked up and was probably surprised to see miller there. when you watch the close up slow motion it looks like he wiggles his left foot trying to put some brakes on but hes like 5 feet from miller at that time.

the question in my mind is about the shove he gave during the hit.

its definitely a penalty worthy hit, but i think its just inside the borderline of suspendable. JUST inside the line.

From the Kerry Fraser article:
Quote:
The next portion of the rule applies to the Lucic hit on Miller where it goes on to state, "A goalkeeper is not 'fair game' just because he is outside the goal crease area. The appropriate penalty should be assessed in every case where an opposing player makes unnecessary contact with a goalkeeper. However, incidental contact, at the discretion of the referee, will be permitted when the goalkeeper is in the act of playing the puck outside his goal crease provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such contact."
Definitely not incidental and made no effort to avoid the contact IMO

Borderline or not, I think Shanahan should've gave him a game or two him to send a message to the rest of the league that injuring goaltenders like that is unacceptable. If concussing a team's goaltender is only worth a 2 minute minor, then we should've sent Tanner Glass in to barrel Tim Thomas, kill off the 2 minutes, and we'd probably have ourselves a Stanley Cup banner hanging from the rafters of Rogers Arena right now.
