Do you guys think this needs to be looked at?



I'm on the fence on this one. It does not look that bad but it definitely reminds me when Volchenkov got suspended last year for sticking out the elbow.

EDIT: He stuck out his knee also, this deserves at least a fine.

Should it be? Yes, IMHO. Will it be? No, not IMHO.

Because it wasn't caught by the refs and seemed to be a fairly minor hit (although it actually smacked Volchenkov pretty good) at first glance I think it gets an "oh well" sort of response. Then again, if anything has been consistent this playoff season it is inconsistency.

Stahl's slash to the back of Elias' legs was worse-that should be reviewed. The Rangers seemed like they were told to goon it up-great I hope they keep the parade to the penalty box going.

That's what I have come to expect from a dirty Rangers-Team. If that is the way they think they can impress the Devs, then so be it. Stuff like that only shows their frustration and the more frustration they show, the better for us. This series will be over after game 6. The Rangers are outplayed in every respect and they will lose the series.

Not a targeted hit IMO. Elbow... yes... targeted head on purpose.. no.


Should suspend Rupp for that cheap shot on Marty though. Different topic but WTF Rupp?

I say let bygones be bygones, since Kovy gave a nice spear job to Callahan's groin in retaliation.

I think the only play that should be looked at from that game was Bickel's cross-check to Carter's throat, but I hope it's not because I don't want to lose Bickel.

I think a warning does the job so if it happens again you can justify a suspension. If nothing else I think the refs want to make sure this doesn't

I'm told the NHL Dept. Player Safety had a lot to review from Devils-Rangers Game 4, but nothing was deemed worthy of a hearing.

He doesn't stick his knee out, he is just turning because he's following the puck. Looks to me like he was trying to avoid any contact so he wouldn't be slowed down from getting to the puck, but they were too close and it happened too fast so he wasn't able to avoid him. Everything about this seems accidental to me, no need for any supplementary discipline. You can maybe make the case for a minor penalty but even that is up for debate.
