whatever the case maybe, no one will take Radulov unless he honors his last year of contract, then NSH can actually trade him. If he proves to be a threat, NSH has a bright future ahead of them.

Has AV gone cuckoo?

CDC thread post:

AV has lost his marbles

Sometimes it seems like he purposely does the OPPOSITE of what fans and hockey pundits think he should, just for spite.
Raymond with the Sedins and Burrows with Paulson and Hansen on the third line in practice today. Maybe AV is just trying to scare everyone including the team. If he actually believes Raymond either deserves the promotion or actually is a better fit than Burrows then he has officially lost his marbles.

I do agree that its a good time to experiment going into the playoffs. Try out different combinations just in case of injury or to give the other team a different look. Try Kassian on the first again, or Higgins. Split the Sedins. A lot of options out there but this is the one AV chooses? Put the softest, unstable, snake-bitten, confidence-shaken perimeter player and throw him on the top line. One that doesn't go to the net, or if he is forced to will not feel comfortable doing it. Raymond has dragged down every line he plays on. So happy they took him off the second line, Kesler's play immediately went up a notch.

I am getting sick of AV's "hunch" management style, along with his rose coloured glasses for certain players while others skate on thin ice where one mistake gets them in the doghouse and no player ever really ever leaves that wet dog smell behind even after they come out. Gillis knew Hodgson would never be accepted by AV no matter how well he did so he was another casualty.

As stupid as CDC posts are, that last paragraph was pretty spot on about AV and Hodgson.

Ex-oiler Steve MacIntyre currently playing for the AHL, probz one of the toughest guy in hockey. He goes ham in a game against the Springfield Falcons, literally beats up players in succession. Holy crap

Watch Steve MacIntyre of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton lose his marbles, attack Springfield goalie (VIDEO) | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports

Quote:
MacIntyre received a cross-checking minor, an elbowing major and a match penalty for Attempt To Injure, for a total of 17 penalty minutes. The Falcons were given eight minutes of power play time. And we were given such instant classic commentary as "Steve MacIntyre has gone crazy, folks."

It is supposed to give the linesman a choice on whether they shud blow the whistle and stop the play if the defence will touch the puck first. If the linesman thinks the player attacking has the chance to get the puck first he will not blow whistle and let them race for the puck. the faceoff dot is like the finish line.

It is supposed to reduce injuries caused when racing for the puck

Hybrid icing is a mixture of touch and no-touch icing. It gives a linesman the discretion to blow his whistle and stop the play if he believes a defending player will reach the puck first. If the linesman believes the attacking player has a chance to reach the puck first, he keeps his whistle in his pocket and lets the race to the puck play out. The linesman always will side with the defending player and blow his whistle if he feels the race is a tie by the time the players reach the faceoff dots.

I like this idea, however, I feelt giving more judgement type calls to refs is bad...you just KNOW there's gonna be so much controversy over an icing call in the playoffs or something.
