Hall of Famer

Hall of Famer (10/11)



  1. Well their job isn't really to tell the trainers when they should hop onto the ice, the trainers do that on their own. If they did that and missed Perron's cross-check as a result, people would be ripping them to pieces.
  2. Congrats to local kid Marc Johnstone of Cranford making his NHL debut last night with Pittsburgh. Pretty unusual path there--went undrafted, didn't even make the USHL until 19, played four years at Sacred Heart, then spent some time in the ECHL and AHL until getting his shot last night at age 27.
  3. I think the jerseys on their own are fine but then the brown pants and gloves make the whole uniform an eyesore.
  4. I'm surprised it still isn't. Canada and Sweden have already mandated them in amateur hockey, USA Hockey just "recommends" them even though a Connecticut high school player died from the same thing in January 2022.
  5. Yeah I get all that, I was just curious if there was some sort of incident that occurred, injury or otherwise, that resulted in him not making it to the end of the game. I'm not saying he deserved more, just wondering if anything happened. Sounds like the answer is no.
  6. Does anyone know why Gambardella only got 9 minutes of ice time? He scored the Devils' first goal in the Montreal game, but got significantly less ice time than everyone else. I wonder if he got injured or benched. He's a longshot to make the roster, but I used to work with him so I'd like to see him put forth a good showing this preseason. He's from Staten Island and played for the NJ Rockets.
  7. Yeah, an interesting scenario because the Rangers beating Buffalo and eliminating them could make it easier for the Devils to beat Buffalo the next day, and those two points would ensure the Rangers don't catch the Devils regardless of what happens in each team's final game.
  8. On top of that, if they lose to the Rangers in regulation tomorrow, they'll have nothing left to play for on Tuesday as they will have been officially eliminated from playoff contention.
  9. The linesman trailing the play is the one who initiates an icing call, and it doesn't look like he ever did. The linesman who everyone is blaming on this play can't make the call if the other guy doesn't initiate it. It looks like he also waves it off anyway because the puck went right past an Ottawa guy before leaving the zone, he just opted to play the body rather than the puck. Sogaard really didn't have it covered, he was expecting a whistle for icing, but since the goalie has a view of the whole ice, he's supposed to look at the linesman and let his players know if icing is about to be called or not. When the puck came to him, despite there being no whistle, he didn't really cover the puck like he was trying to freeze it. It was behind his blocker but wasn't really covered. People are bashing the linesman for not calling icing--maybe it could have been but I also see why it was waved off--when really it's Sogaard that butchered this play in multiple ways. This is a good call. If Sogaard just covers it like normal, or lets his defenseman know icing is waved off, then nothing happens on this play.
  10. I disagree because it's easier to tell the exact moment that a puck crosses a line than when the puck leaves a player's stick. The author of that article completely fails to acknowledge this and gives two examples where it's clear that the puck left the stick before the buzzer but just didn't cross the line in time. Also his point seems to be about buzzer beaters being taken away because the shot was a split second too late, but the same thing would happen if they changed the rule--someone could take a shot right at the buzzer but the moment the puck leaves his stick could be after the buzzer started sounding. This would also result in a lot of lengthy reviews because of how nearly impossible it is to tell the exact moment the puck is no longer in contact with the stick. At least with the current rule, you have a camera always giving you a directly overhead view of the line. The rule is what it is because it's black and white, it's relatively easy to tell if it's a goal or not and the basketball rule would be damned near impossible to call accurately in the NHL. Not because Bettman is "sleeping on the job" and "hates fun."
  11. Man that player name indicator thing during a powerplay is extremely distracting and annoying.
  12. I like Bob Wischusen as a play-by-play guy though. He played in an adult hockey league I used to run, nice guy.
