I'm not defending him. I'm just saying that it's really easy to miss if you're not looking for it. And if you are looking for it, it still doesn't look as brutal as it actually was. From a league review perspective, it's hard to say Crosby deserved anything more than a double minor -- he almost obliviously skates away unaware of what he's just done. It's a dirty play, but how you can understand intent to injure there is beyond me.

The nut tap was from behind on a player who was nowhere near the puck, in a place where his stick absolutely has no use or necessity.

i know you aren't defending any of his actions. having been a minor-level hockey referee myself for several years, i definitely disagree that the slash is easy for pro-level officials to miss, provided they're all in their proper positions and watching what they're supposed to be watching. after all, the guy was carrying the puck into the offensive zone, by the book he should have at least two pairs of eyes on him at that moment. but you have a good point on the intent to injure thing when it relates to discipline after the fact. although to my knowledge don't they suspend guys for accidental head shots that injure, irrespective of intent?

i'm shocked that there wasn't a penalty on the ice for leaving a guy with his fingertip hanging off by the skin though. even if they didn't think the initial slash was worth a penalty, it becomes automatic once blood is drawn.

By "easy to miss" I merely mean if a referee blinked, he could have missed it. There was no body contact. If they made a mistake, it isn't like there was something for the linesmen or official opposite to see.

I mean, Crosby derailed Giroux's prime by slashing his wrists into oblivion for six straight games in 2012 and forcing him to get double surgery. His touch never fully recovered.

i'm happy about the leafs making the playoffs but in the sense that getting in was such a huge accomplishment on its own for a team based around star rookies.

they have negative momentum (if any) and are playing the president's trophy winning team. clearly they're going to get fucking swept.

these rookies will get playoff experience either way. the team will be even better next year and the year after. even one more win this season is gravy.

It's the NHL. The playoffs are never obvious.

So you have Ottawa losing in the first round yet advancing to the ECF?
