Btw, Kessel continually bringing the puck to center ice in OT so he could charge the net was fucking incredible to watch.

What Sid did was a run of the mill slash that the NHL has pretty clearly decided is not something they want to eliminate. It was nothing like the vicious hit that was put on Geuntzel.

Is it wrong that every time I see a post in this thread i'm expecting to see player x is out indefinitely.
Jose Tabata, Pedro Alvarez, and Andrew McCutchen are the new Jason Kendall, Brian Giles, and Kevin Young (in his prime) players that are good, but surrounded by crap which will make them losers.

No, since it seems to be happening about once a game, sometimes twice.

Who are the players currently out, and who is expected back, and when are they expected back?

thanks in advance.

It actually might be better to sit everyone, throw the remaining games, and stay clear of Columbus in the first round.

Edit: Then again I'm not sure if that's even possible, this fucking playoff system is absurd. At this point, somebody new drops with every new game.

I was going to say I've never seen this many injuries, but I have, actually seen this many injuries: 2010.

I am almost certain I am the only member of the Pittsburgh chapter of PHWA that did not vote for Marc-Andre Fleury for the Masterton Trophy. I voted for Matt Cullen. I think being one of the oldest players in the league, playing a thankless grunt role, doing so while being an extremely clean and honest player, shows a little more dedication to hockey than losing your starting job to a better player and not being a dick about it.

Half of the league doesn't decimate their opponents' fingers though.


Are you serious? slashes like that happen on every rush. Multiple times. Not all hit fingers, they hit sticks, shins, ect...but that is a common hockey play that mostly results in nothing.

Well, if these guys are all saying it was a relatively common play, that's good to hear. But I do think a player's injury should have some bearing on the punishment.

For example, if a shoulder a guy in the bar because I think he's a douche as I walk by him, nothing really happens (unless he's bigger than me, and proceeds to kick my ass).

But if I shoulder a guy in the bar, and he accidentally falls backwards down a flight of stairs, then I go to jail.


So same slash, but Crosby misses the hand and hits his stick, breaking it...is that no penalty or an permanent suspension since the stick is dead?

Thank you for doing that. I don't want to overhype "veteranosity", but I will also say that watching the effect that AJ Burnett and Russell Martin had on the Pirates- and then how the Pirates played without such veteran leaders last year- made me realize that it is tangible, and is important.

I could easily see Cullen getting overlooked so the beloved Fleury could have this as a consolation prize, but I think you hit the nail on the head here, and am glad somebody recognized him.

I'm worried this team might not get healthy and lose in the first round not because of the matchup but because they have fringe players playing too man minutes. And the power play is a mess without Malkin. Sure would be nice to have him back.
