    Re: Marchand hit on Emelin: Just a good ol hip check

    for what it's worth, i went to the habs site and the gazette site, neither of which even mentioned the hit. so if the overly dramatic(call 911) montreal fanbase has no problem with it, how is it that bruin fans do? weird. it was a hip check by a guy who stands 5' nothing. is he not allowed to throw a hip check?

    A few years ago the Montreal fans booed the U.S. National Anthem. Last night they cheered when chara was hit , in the throat with the puck. They do not deserve to be in the same building as those who followed Rocket Richard, Henri richard and all the great players who made Montreal a class act hockey team.

    As far as Marchand's hip check, it was legal, Montreal came out trying to slam dunk the bruins, nothing wrong with legal retaliation

    If Marchand played on any of 29 teams not named Boston he would be the most hated  National Hockey League player among fans in Boston. Easily topping anyone of Vancouver. Not even close.

    Shouldn't you be somewhere writing a post about what it would mean if numbers were different.

    I didn't like this Marchand hit.  It was unnecessary.  Kinda like going for a guy's head.  Not really clipping or anything that bad, but I didn't like it.

    I did like it. Emelin had it coming. I don't care how much time was on the clock. I bet he got multiple "attaboy"s in the dressing room between periods. It was nowhere near as bad as Thornton drilling him without the puck in the 3rd. I expected to be short handed after but the refs were awful for both teams last night.

    The hit was borderline low.  I didn't like it.

    That hit was a foot above the knees whether you like it or not.

    Re: Marchand hit on Emelin: Just a good ol hip check

    I loved the idea of retaliating in an almost legal way for a hit on a teamate, and he didn't target the guy's knee, I just felt it was pushing the limit.  I think part of Marchand's problem is not that he is clipping people, it's that he's just so good at throwing, and not telegraphing, hip checks.  It's kind of like Scott Stevens open ice bodychecks.  Legal but dangerous. I love hipchecks, and I love it when Marchand thows them. But I think Marchand should show some restraint. I actually thought the Salo one was OK.  This one made me feel like it was borderline.  The only thing that makes it a little acceptable is that Emelin did have it coming.  You play by the sword...

    Shanahan says he doesn't like the hit but.........it was legal. Where was that logic after the Salo "clip"?

    The problem there for Marchand is his height.  His hip is making contact lower than usual because he's so damn short

    I don't think he was intentionaly trying to low blow the guy

    Agreed Cole was the only one that was close the others were terrible.

    So Shan-wow now says he doesn't like checks to the thigh and hip area. Wow, he's really starting to accelerate the "pink hat" era. I'll bet he was disappointed that he couldn't suspend Marchand. And he throws the ref under the bus by saying it was not a clip but doesn't say the penalty was undeserved or a mistake. Headline is a little prejudiced too. Guess the folks at NBC Sportstalk don't like BM either.

    Kerry Fraser kissing up to the Canadien fan base again. Lie down and fake an injury, wait till after the suspension happens then declare you're healthy. Right up your alley Kerry along with your career as a ref.

    Again, I don't think it was the greatest hit.  It was kind of shifty and I'd be irritated if I got hit that way by the rat.  But that doesn't make it illegal!

    He seems to be a bit confused.  Marchand claims defense when he ducks while someone is trying to hit him - as in what happened later in the game with Subban.  That was completely not the situation here.  This was an attempt at delivering a hip-check.  If it had hit below the knees, it unquestionably would have been a clip.  As it did not, it wasn't.  There doesn't seem to be much grey area in the rules.

    Here's CJ's take on the hit.


    “My eyes saw [Marchand’s] butt hit the other guy’s butt. Clipping and a suspension is going after a guy’s knees. That’s the way I saw it and I’m hoping the league sees it the same way.”

     forget cj's take.... it's shanny's take that has me scratching my head. he said it WASN'T clipping, BUT he didn't like it. huh? he doesn't like legal hip-checks? what? sounds more like a personal vendetta than an impartial nhl executive.

    We both heard the same thing then. I'm not sure what Shanny didn't like as the hit wasn't even borderline.

    we both know what shanny doesn't like... our boy marchy. i started the year a big supporter of shanny, and at this point, he has zero credibility imo. i think it started when he used the term "predatory". he lost me there.
