    [QUOTE]I don't believe Lucic's claim that he feels he hit Rinaldo in the shoulder, just as I don't believe his claim that he couldn't avoid Miller. Hits from behind are dangerous (and cowardly).  They can cause paralysis. Blind side hits to the head are dangerous.  They can cause severe concussions. Do we really need these hits in the game?  I say no. There are plenty of opportunities in a game to deliver solid, clean body checks.  Those are the hits I like to see.

    Why bring in blindside hits to the head?  You're not suggesting the Miller collision was one? 

    I can see why you might not believe Lucic's story, but it's a loooong way from thinking he could have avoided Miller or could have hit Rinaldo differently to he took a malicious shot at both guys.  Lucic could have avoided Miller, but I think he'd have had to go into the play with a different thought process - one where avoiding the collision is as or more important than winning the race for the puck.  Everyone who doesn't believe him talks about it being physically possible for him to avoid Miller.  No one talks about his brain moving fast enough from breakaway mode to assessing where Miller's moving to, to avoiding him.  That's the part he wasn't able to manage.

    Cowardly to hit a guy square in the numbers, sure, but again, like the elbow that supposedly fired up Crosby's PCS, guys are moving quickly.  You aim for the lateral hit, the shoulder, and sometimes you're going to miss.  Think about the number of clipping penalties in the NFL where a guy tries to get a lateral block but mistimes it just enough for the play to be illegal.  In Lucic's case, if it results in a boarding call and a hit straight to the back, well, discipline is what it is.  In this case, though, it will come down to things you can see on the tape.  Did he hit him on the shoulder or between the numbers?  No story about intent necessary.

    i can't believe the majority of posters are calling for a suspension.  it should have been a 2 min. boarding call.  there is no way shanahan suspends him.

    Just to be clear on my earlier post(s), I'm not calling for a suspension.  I'm concerned that when the Bruins do do something genuinely worthy of a suspension, they'll get the book thrown at them.

    I'm not suggesting the Miller hit was blindsided, I'm just drawing a parallel between the two types of hits that I feel don't belong in the game.  I actually liked the Miller hit and stated so at the time.

    i don't think shanahan will be influenced by hab-leaf-canuckleheads who think the b's are getting preferential treatment by the league.  he would have suspended mcquaid if that was the case.

    looch did hit him in the numbers against the boards. It was probably retaliation for Rinaldo hitting from behind around the goal after the play had been blown dead and everyone was standing relaxed. Rinaldo is more of a dirty player than Marchand and his slew foot. Still, Looc h is wrong, and will pay the price. Fortunately the bruins can fill -in with Caron

    No, Lucic didn't hit him in the numbers.

    At speed it looks that way, but check it out in slow mo and you'll see it is shoulder to shoulder contact.

    Boarding yes.

    And against Lucic you might argue that the intent was there, but that would be pure speculation.

    I think the max he gets is a fine, no suspension.

    And there is zero comparison to the Phanuef hit on Kassian, who had a lot of time staring at the numbers on the back of the jersey, it wasn't a quick play, plus he crossed checked him, plus he boarded him and clearly blind side.  It's not even close.

    Caron cannot fill in for Lucic.  Even if one day in career he scores 30 like Lucic last season he cannot fill in the package Looch brings.
    Caron one day will be a pretty good winger, maybe a top6 at times but right now he is not.

    Books ,  it's obvious Lucic does not deserve a suspension when comparing Phaneuf's non-suspension on a boarding so why would the league send Lucic (or a Bruin) multiple games in these situations ?

    Does it go back to what I was saying it's like a ref evening PP chances in a game ?
    I hope not because that'll taint Shannahans creditability.

    Any news on Lucic ?

    A suspension? For a Bruin?

    Are you kidding me?

    You're all talking about this in anticipation of the decision from the hearing, but......have they even announced a hearing for this?

    It may never even come to THAT, let alone a fine or suspesnion

    Swere, it was a game misconduct. That's an automatic league review.

    Always great to have a rep from the Vancouver lunatic fringe to always pipe in.

    Interesting that there's lifers here from Montreal and Vancouver that can't get on with their lives.

    I can't imagine having so little to do where I'd be visiting other teams' sites for that purpose... forever.  What exactly is the unemployment rate in Montreal and Vancouver?

    Once again North, after being objective for a moment (recent posts) you get lost again in the egoism.  Most think the Lucic hit as defined is a suspension.  It has nothing to do with your Vancouver azz.  Objective thinking!  Now did Rinaldo turn at the last minute?, yup.  Shannahan will now have to deal with the ramifications of calling more as opposed to Colin Campbell, embellishment will "run amok".  Any person could figure this would be the next course of logic as a disciplinarian, players turning into the action then doing an embellishment for more penalty minutes.  Lucic deserves a suspension, YET, I will wait to see if truly Shannahan can handle the discipline of penaltizing or fining for embellishment. All said and done, Vancourver bites without ASCPA notification! You are a lonely troll on a Boston site.

    I think he'll get a game or two, I don't agree with it but he's had the Miller incident this year and now this. Shanahan will cave to the public opinion police and hand him a suspension.

    and when he does something that truly warrants a suspension, they'll say he is a repeat offender... If he isn't already...
