P.K. Subban And The Inconsistencies of NHL Discipline

There's something delicious about this image when you're talking supplemental discipline in the NHL. It's obvious that few people think that the NHL does a good job of handing out supplemental discipline. Be it Colin Campbell or Brendan Shanahan, there's something to disagree with in nearly every decision. On-ice officiating can be questionable enough due to the speed...

P.K. Subban slewfoots Chris Kunitz

Hum! Another game, another P.K. Subban atrocity by the Habs defenseman, well maybe not, but I think this is the same thing that Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand got fined for when he slew footed Matt Niskanen. Last week the Habs punk Subban hit Boston Bruins forward David Krecji in the head with a questionable high hit . I am starting to see a pattern here, Subban is starting...

P.K. Subban takes down Penguins’ Chris Kunitz with a slewfoot (Video)

With all the talk of picking, blindside hits, and the leaving one's feet that has dominated the discussion this season, it's often easy to forget that there are all sorts of dirty hits that have nothing to do with the head. With that in mind, I'd like to thank P.K. Subban for reminding us all of the effectiveness of the traditional slewfoot. One imagines Chris Kunitz...

Montreal blows another one

The Canadiens blew a 4-2 lead Friday night, losing 5-4 in a shootout to Piitsburgh. The Habs have now won 1 of 8 shootouts, and scored 4 goals in them. But who’s counting? Many will blame PK Subban for this loss, pegging him for the Dustin Jeffrey goal that started the comeback. I think that’s bunk. Scott Gomez was out of position, and the rest of the team basically stopped...

Game 48: Habs/Leafs

Classic 11-12 Canadiens. Take a 4-2 lead into the third period and blo it all to eventually lose in OT. I couldn’t watch last night due to a family function, but something tells me that I didn’t need to see it go down to understand what happened. Frankly, I had no illusions that an immaculate run for the playoffs was possible, even though I harbour no ill-will to those who want...

Penguins Earn Sixth Consecutive Win, Knock Off Caps 4-3

It is rarely a treat to get up and down to the Consol Energy Center on a Sunday morning; however a performance like the one the Penguins put forth today somehow makes it worth it. Sure they did their best to give this game away to the Capitals, who they haven’t beaten in Pittsburgh for close to three years, but again… they found a way. It is no surprise that at the root of finding...
