I know he is a beat writer for the Rangers, but could Carpiniello stop with the ass-kissing of that franchise for even a second?  He had to include that "slew foot" part in there even though the coach of the team he loves even said he didn't think it was a slew foot.

Well everyone has their view on that still and i think the jury is still out on that one. Hell many people who do like Subban in here admitted it was clearly a slew foot.

I'll go on record saying that i personally gave him the benefit of the doubt eventhough he had a long slewfoot history

It was as slew foot as they come, and if he didn’t want to fight Kreider, he definitely doesn’t want Reaves. 

I haven’t heard anything about Reaves, how hurt is he?

I don’t thing Subban was looking to injure (that came from how Reaves fell) but he was definitely dragging that leg knowing it would make contact with Reaves. It was avoidable. But Reaves complaining about a cheap shot is pretty funny.

That’s not inaccurate.

I read he was fine and day-to-day

Well if you're saying that he was definitely dragging that leg to make contact with reaves... that's the definition of a slewfoot lol Not sure why you disagree with that beat writer then? I'm not even trolling or throwing my personal opinion here lol it just seems contradictory

My understanding of a slew foot is using your feet/legs to take out another guy’s feet/legs. While there are ways you could stick a leg out to try to get in a guy’s way that are not slew footing, Subban did not do that, whether he intended to slew or not, he slewed lol.

Well that's where i just don't understand the previous comments haha unless the focus is on "he didnt tried to injure / hurt him". Then i agree, i dont think that was the intention. But it's like someone would say "he didn't punch him"... then next comment say "he definitely used his fist to strike him"... well thats the definition of a punch lol anyway... its pretty irrelevant now. I just hope Reaves doesn't go after the young guys

I was saying he clearly knew he was going to make leg on leg contact. People can argue over whether it was a text book slew foot or not but he knew what he was doing. I don’t think he was intending to injure anyone but he definitely knew his leg was going to hit the back of Reaves’. He could easily have avoided that. So it makes it hard to give him the benefit of the doubt when you add in that he has a history of slew footing.

Your example is a little off. It’s like the difference between deliberately elbowing a guy in the head and the guy ducking at the last minute and dropping his head right into your elbow while you are trying to take his body into the boards. You didn’t intend to elbow him in the head, but you still did. 

I don’t think PK was trying to hurt him, but he was sure as sh!t trying to trip him knowing that it was a risk, which is another distinction.

Right. Did he intend to take him out of the play? Yes. Did he plan to make him fall awkwardly so he got hurt? No. 

Did he do something that comes with that risk? Obviously so.

That’s way more concise than what I said.

They won’t be staples.

I don’t know what Walsh you watched this preseason, but it’s becoming pretty abundantly clear that he’s a major bust. He was lost, out of position and confused every time he had the puck. 

Yeah, I shouldn't have said staples - I meant just regulars in the lineup at least for a few guys (until whenever Sevs and Smith are available).  

Admittedly I didn't see much of Walsh.  Disappointing to hear that he's regarded as a bust.

This post is definitive proof that you're a lawyer 😂

I’m not sure how that’s true, but as I am, I guess that makes sense.

Not disagreeing with your points at all, it's just when I read your post; in my head it sounded like closing arguments in a courtroom lol

I suppose that’s not really far off.

According to an email, Devils have updated their policy.  You either have to show proof of vaccination at the door or have to wear a mask at all times.

Not quite ideal, but going in the right direction.

Definitely good news.

This is absolutely worthless, it's a half ass policy... 

ENTRY POLICY:

  • Children under 12 may enter the venue so long as they wear a mask covering their nose and mouth at all times unless actively eating or drinking.

Okay…. We wanted a policy. They announced one. They are requiring proof of vaccination or a mask. What else were they supposed to do? Require a picture of the needle going in your arm?

It’s better than not announcing anything, which is what it looked like they would do. 

No, it’s exactly the same. There’s no way they will enforce that rule and it’s basically letting everyone do whatever they feel like “masked” as a policy. Pun obviously intended, you know who you are dealing with lol.
