Good Riddance to the Avs - I've developed a real hate for that team. Unfortunately, they are going to be good next season.

Marchand pissing off the entire sportsnet crew may make me want to cheer them on a little longer :lol:
Indeed; https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/bru ... reporters/

A philosopher extraordinaire. :idea:
I hate to see the Bruins going through, but I'm extra-grateful they eliminated the Leaves from the easiest path to the SCF in decades :drink:
Yup lol

Hatred for Leaves > Hatred for Bruins
What's ironic about McLean and his whiny little bitches going on about Marshit is back in the 2011 Stanley Cup and the 2012 regular season game between the Canucks and Bruins is how much they loved him, fellated him and giggled like little girls when he was pulling the same shit. Now they want him fined and suspended. Hypocrisy much?

Leaves fans cheered for the Rangers in '94 and the Bruins in '11. That's all.

Regarding the offside... sure, he's offside according to the rules, but FFS he has nothing whatsoever to do with the play. Nothing. The league might want to consider the FIFA approach. You can be in an offside position, but as long as you don't directly affect the play, you are not declared offside. Landeskog is a few centimeters from the blue line, facing away from the play, and about to step off the ice. That's about as irrelevant to the play as you can get without being off the ice, or behind your own net. One could also blame poor bench design. Regardless, it's unfortunate. I would have liked to have seen how that game played out if that goal stood.

I agree but my gawd, someone on the freakin bench coulda, shouda, noticed.
All he would've had to do is push down on the bench and lift his feet a couple inches off the ice.
Too bad.

Canucks had a goal called back in the regular season for a similar play.

Agreed, this bullshit is ruining the game.

To have this affect a Game 7 outcome is beyond stupid.

I was a lousy 4-for-8 in the 1st, but at least I got it right on the Flames and Leaves losing.

I'm taking Columbus
Islanders
St. Louis
San Jose
2 fer 4, at least I'm keeping pace with a coinflip.

Hockey is too fast and the rink is too small for that to be called consistently.

The problem is with the review - if they need to slow it down to view it frame by frame then the call on the ice should stand. If they can't tell after 30 seconds if the play was offside or not, then leave it be.

These are suppose to be the best officials in the world in the best league in the world. Slow the replay down to 1/4 speed and if you still can't tell then it should be good goal.
