I wonder how long you guys are going to call this a fluke.
Probably until they get their first injury and stop fluking out.

I mean, the Canucks have already lost their #1D and a top-6 winger (...ok, top-9 winger) for 4-6 weeks, and its only been 5 games!

...unless you think their current results are for real, and they'll go 72-6 for the year?

I think posters are just too consumed by their hate and aren't thinking straight. Plus, Reefer has been hitting the sauce a bit too much lately :-P

Tanev isn’t hurt and Eriksson has had zero impact since July 2, 2016

That McDavid spin-o-rama on Keith was a thing of beauty.

Apparently Boeser's shot is pretty hard. Definitely looked like the shots hurt, but didn't think they actually broke McQuaid's leg.

Nobody has really been able to explain this but any goalie you talk to will say there is a difference.

Actually if you read that link a user mentions a very plausible explanation - the amount of spin the player places on the puck. An increase in RPMs would equate to more energy transfer upon impact. Radar guns will only measure linear velocity not rotation.

I was thinking of another possibility as well, goalies will tell you a player hides his shot well. Meaning it's hard to pick up the release point of the shot, I would wager a guess that these players seem to have a heavier shot. What likely happens is that the goalie has a harder time picking up the puck on a shot and has less time to prepare for impact. So he isn't flexing muscles at the same time as he would for a shot that is easier to pick up!

I remember that most shots I blocked, no matter how fast, if the puck was spinning it would usually deflect off the shin pads and not hurt but if the puck had no spin the impact was painful like a hammer.

AP it's like some guys throw a " heavy" ball right. I don't know the answer but it's real


A "heavy ball" is one that has late movement and hits the receiver's glove in a non-sweet spot. It hurts the hand, and the ball can feel like it weighs a pound when that happens. Hence the term, "Heavy ball."

The above makes sense to me

American hockey is trending - Matthews, Keller, Wetenski, Gaudreau, Eichel, McAvoy, Tkachuk, Boeser etc while Canadians are busting badly Reinhart, Bennett, Dal Colle, Strome, Virtanen, McKinnon, Dubios, Hayden Fleury. It's just McDavid all by himself against American hockey

Exactly!

Actually a pitcher is a perfect example. Some guys hide the ball extremly well when they throw, it’s hard to pick up because of their delivery. The ball isn’t moving any faster than other pitchers but because it’s harder to pick up it seemingly gets there faster.
