Quite true. Never shown a series stealing ability. Even Luongo while obviously having some playoff struggles has shown a consistent ability to steal games throughout his playoff career.


Yes, last summer I had a Ranger fan mock Luongo, to which I responded that he's done better, gone farther, in the playoffs than King Henrik. It was like I'd just blasphemed, the guy was apoplectic, could not believe anyone would dare critique the King, especially to Luongo.


Both of them great goalies; both having backstopped their national teams to Olympic gold.
I wouldn't be surprised to see both of them eventually winning the cup.
Luongo hopefully this season already.

:lol: Yeah, I'm starting to think the same of Price. Good regular, choker in the post-season...maybe I will get double fun this summer when I meet a Habs & a Laugh fan on the patio and taunt them both about their clutchless goalies...hey, a guy can dream can't he?!

Price choked the entire regular season this time around and a good chunk of the one before that. Perhaps to his hometown is in Luongo's future.

I thought it was a clean hit. I think the ref did too which is why he got the infamous interference penalty. Like oh shit another great, clean, open ice and hit but da guy is bleeding and oh shit I gotta call something so like ok interference it is. Worked before, once in the finals a few years back.

I think it was a good hockey hit with a bad result.

I see you've come up for air finally.

But yeah, the last thing you said.

edit; Gryba gets two games

Brown doesn't even get a hearing:

Pausered from TSN:

Canadiens forward Brandon Prust offered up his view on the comments made by Senators coach Paul MacLean blaming Eric Gryba's hit on the pass made by Raphael Diaz. "We don't really care about what that bug-eyed fat walrus has to say," Prust told the media.

It was hilarious listening to the CBC twats rave on about how clean a player Dustin Brown is. "He plays on the line but doesn't cross it."

:lol: Imagine if a Canuck was pulling that kind of shit every night.

Jesus, still can't believe they gave Rome four games in the SCF...

It was interesting that the replay they showed the most was the one where it looked like the principle point of contact was the head. The reverse angle to me shows he got him in the chest first and then the shoulder hit the head. I still say clean hit.

Ference gets one game for a Brown type elbow. Why not at least 2 like Brown got.

Again no consistency from the league.

Hope Eller is Ok though. He has a nasty injury.
