@Donald Segretti Surely you're not suggesting a Hockey player might conceal an injury? Seriously, though, I've not noticed that much of an issue with Pirri's skating, but then again maybe watching Handzus lumbering around out there has dulled my perception a little!

@HockeenightsCT It does, and good point about Dallas. What it also underlines (as if we needed it) is that Q doesn't trust Pirri in close games (and the Dallas game was far tighter than Phoenix). I think the only way we don't see Pirri shuffling back & forth from RFD till the Deadline is if someone gets long-term hurt or Bowman does a "John Scott" and trades one of Q's little buddies out from under him.

I'll agree with that. But if they're asking the question and gettiing stonewalled/fobbed off then they sure as hell aren't talking about it as much as they smirkingly report "We'll see=Yes in Q-Speak". I undestand the circumstances they operate in but I seriously doubt a Kuc or Sassone or Lazerus or Myers will get the boot just for asking some questions.

@admused I watched that happen in 1999. Threw a beer can at the TV, stomped off to the store to get a bottle of gin, my brother and I didn't exchange a word until we were halfway down it. Have never seen either goal since. That's how much that upset me.
But you're dead right: it was more or less a carbon-copy

@wardrums @Jeffrey Bartl @trsimmons58 there was nothing legal about the Upchuck hit (I like the nickname!)
It's just a combination of "ITZ DA PLAYOFFSS" and a league that only pays lip-service to eliminating concussions

@Bullitt315 @wardrums that's a good point.. but if the refs called it a cross check, then they have no option to extend the Minor (according to ver book)
5 months, 4 weeks ago on Burn, Hollywood, Burn. Kings 3 Hawks 4 (2OT), Hawks win series 4-1
@Bullitt315 @wardrums the Soccer starts at a reasonable time here (unlike Hockey.. damn inconsiderate!) The refs can't really call a cross-check a high-stick.. any more than they could call Too Many Men an Interference penalty. maybe a gap in the rules that needs looking at..
@wardrums thanks, mate. The cross-checking rule doesn't allow for a 4 minute minor (unlike the high-sticking rule). And yes, I liked 20 in particular.. that play where he squeezed his way through two d-men to get a shot in.. Brandon Saad is the truth
thank you.. I don't watch the Hawks on TV (although a cable channel called Premier Sports carries selected games over here). It's the magic of the interwebs and *cough* completely legitimate streams for me.

you don't think that aimlessly chewing dry chips, feeling the sharp points puncture the roof of your mouth and making swallowing excruciatingly painful is much more appropriate for a Game 7?

@AppState heh! thanks.. and I figured "They want to destroy everything I hold dear for kicks" anyway, so riling them up a bit can't possibly make it any worse

@Tinmann Thanks! I, personally wouldn't say Hossa was ineffective: he was a +5 on Corsiand his pass for Toews' goal was a thing of beauty (he also played very sharply on both scoring PPs.. including a great keep in to set up the second goal) But yes, he drew the Zetterberg assignment last night and that cut down on his dash a bit. Plus he's having the usual Marian Hossa playoffs experience.. he'll be invisible for a couple of games but can still pop up and win one in the blink of an eye.
