    Re: Marchand - 2 games

    Funny to see Vancouver whining about this.  It looks like Keith Ballard has made a career out of such hits.  I was looking for his hit on Campbell from today's game, and it appears his method of hitting is a "hip check" where he completely under-cuts the guy and tries to get him to land on his head.

    He's not the only guy on the team either, as we saw Dan Humhuis injure himself doing the same thing to Lucic last year in the finals.  Here are 3 recent examples from Ballard I found.  All pretty cheap and dirty, which is the kind of play Elaine and their dirtbag GM pride themselves in.

    Salo is always hurt, might be made of glass.  Ever seen his player bio on TSN, with his injury detail?
    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/bio/?id=1550

    He hasn't played 70 games in a season since 2003-04. 

    All kidding aside, hope he's ok,  that was a nasty tumble.

    Dez,
    I havent even seen the play yet.  I may avoid watching.  I'm in the tired of reviewing every play group.  Hockey is not shown on TSN Sportsdesk.  Its questionable hits. 
    The league is a joke and continues to get worst

    I know Dez, I'm fooling around with you . I hate the fact that people are blaming Marchand for the loss it's not their fault their hate for the kid blinds their judgment.  Most he should have gotten was 2mins and Vancouver would have scored maybe only 1 goal. 
    It's so easy to point out things like this but then when he makes the Bruins win a game it's hard for them to come here and say THAT IS WHY WE WON ! but nooo they chose to say THAT IS WHY WE LOST. (Shupe , not you, you give dues when they're due).
    BTW See the Ballard thread.

    No worries Legion. I was kidding too. The hit was at least borderline so I know where some people are coming from. Cheers.

    Mike Gillis GM is lobbing that Salo might have a concussion.  Now that'll get Marchand suspended for sure.It worked on Miller - Lucic hearing.

    BsL - Gillis is a mug.  You must have seen P. J. Stock on HNIC tonight pull out video examples of hits similar to Marchand's that the Canucks have done.  I'm not advocating for Marchand but clearly the Canucks are no strangers to that kind of play despite their warped perception of themselves.

    Re: Marchand - 2 games

    Still think the question here is what is the specific infraction that gets Marchand suspended?

    The video evidence is pretty indisputable, this is not clipping as Marchand does not hit Salo at or below the knees.  That said, that didn't stop Shanahan from suspending Lucic for the "not particularly egregious hit" on Rinaldo.  Could be a Lucic-type "body of work" suspension coming.

    For those that insist this is a dirty play, what is your reaction to CJ defending Marchand in his post-game comments? 

    “We all have our opinions on what is going on with the game and the hits and everything else. All I’m going to tell you is what I’ve always told my players, that they need to protect themselves,” Julien said. “The last thing I want my players to do is get hit and then end up with a concussion, and they have to protect themselves. Whether it’s the right way or the wrong way, it’ll depend on how the league looks at it.
    “I’d rather have a guy take a two-minute penalty than turn his back to the play, stand up straight, than get his face knocked into the glass and be out for maybe the rest of the year with a concussion, or maybe end his career like (B’s center Marc) Savard. So I think we have to really look at those kinds of things. In my opinion, if guys start protecting themselves the way Marchand did, maybe guys will stop taking runs at other guys because that’s the consequences you end up paying for taking runs at guys, too. Who knows where we’re going to go with this? I know we’re all trying hard to fix that part of the game, but it’s still there — and it’s still not fixed.”

    I'm surprised he hasn't been suspended for it before. In fact, I can't remember him even being PENALIZED for it before. He should be. It's really dangerous. Still, I was pretty miffed they decided to START doing it in this game after they had already bounced Lucic for no reason.

    The actual hit was clean; it was possibly interference, though.

    Even some of the cleanest, hard hits are dangerous as hell. Not every hit that hurts somebody is suspension worthy, or even dirty.

    It's awfully hypocritical of the Canucks to cry, not only because Ballard did it to Campbell, but because he's actually notorious for it.

    http://vansunsportsblogs.com/2011/10/17/what-is-clipping-and-why-does-keith-ballard-getting-called-for-it/

    No hockey team is full of saints. The ones that really kill me are the ones who cry about rough play. Let's not become one of those fanbases.

    I CAN'T BELIEVE CLAUDE SAID THAT ABOUT THE MARCHAND PLAY.

    I respect him even more for saying it. This specific play, ducking and avoiding an oncoming hit, should NEVER BE VIEWED AS THE FAULT OF THE HIT-EE, IT SHOULD BE VIEWED AS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE HITT-ER TO STAY UNDER CONTROL.

    Marchand did NOT INITIATE CONTACT on the play.

    The most important statements are the ones that seem outrageous at first glance, but ron then slowly make more sense. I didn't paul expect that statement from Claude but I'm incredibly impressed that he made it.

    Re: Marchand - 2 games

    The hit was not clipping as Marchand was NEVER lower than knee level.  The ref screwed up as he was too close to the play to determine at what level Marchand was.

    While we are at it, when Kreijci was stapled to the boards from behind during the last 4 minutes of the game there was no call.  Similarly,earlier, a Canuck defenceman tripped a B's forward pursuing the puck by sliding into his skates (a hit below the knees) no call was made.

    But when has van Masssenhoven EVER been a good referree who didn't have his own agenda?

    I don't want him to play like a Vancouver Canuck.  Sometimes, he does.

    I have asked people why you hardly ever see and hip checks anymore.  I now have my answer because you may get 5 and a game for a text book hip check.  I have seen stills of the contact and Marchand legs are Perfectly straight when contact is made.  It is only the weight of Ballard on his back that causes his legs to bend. 

    The NHL has already admitted the refs made an error on the lucic's suspension.  It will be interesting if they do the same thing in this instance.

    i posted this somewhere also.  Everyone fails to see what Salo's (btw in french Salo means dirty) intentions were, just like Sedin in the playoffs last season.
    Salo was barreling in to hit Marchand also.
    While some might call it dirty , it wasn't clipping the knees. I still don't like it.
