How many games? If Edler gets 3 for his hit on Hertl, Lapierre probably deserves 30.


ahahahahahahaha fucking sharks are weak....good on you Lappy! Do what the Canuckleheads can't...knock them into the next county...

*looks @ the score*

:eh:

Maybe the Canucks ain't so shitty after all, eh?

4-1 against teams not named Sharks.

Really don't think that hit was that bad. Boyle got caught in a vulnerable position just as Lapierre was delivering the hit, that play happens dozens of times every game.

Even the NBC announces see that Boyle stumbles a bit as he's wringing the puck around the boards. Lapierre isn't even looking at Boyle when they make contact, he's checking to see where the puck goes and decide where he needs to be for the next play.

Don't like to see a guy carted off and but it's a contact sport and things like that will happen. Sure Lappy hit the numbers but he didn't charge or take a run at Boyle, he was simply trying to rub him out on the boards and get back into the play.

Boyle stumbled and it looks like his chin or face makes contact where the boards and glass meet.

That's how I saw it too, Boyle stumbles just as the hit is delivered. Had Boyle not stumbled that is an ordinary hit with Lappy finishing his check. But it will be a reputation call and I think he gets 10 games. I think Shanny finds Lappy could have let up.

You're likely right on the suspension front, Shanny will throw the book at Lappy on reputation alone.

It's a softball.

Though saying that he'll probably shock us all and get this right and explain the play as we saw it and give Lappy a game or two.

LOL we don't hafta defend Lappy anymore folks, he's not one of the good guys anymore!

*schpits on Schneids, kicks CoHo in the JoHos*

OMG Shanny is gonna throw the book at him!

Recent-Canuck, repeat-offender, 4th-liner, takes out star player :wow:

.... or he lets him off with a warning (ya never know with Shanarama Dingdong) :mrgreen:

EDIT: he's not a "repeat offender" anymore, slate is wiped clean after 18 months.

Raymond and the Leafs are slaying it, 2 goals for MayRay last night. Seemingly, Nonis' club and Gillis' club are going in opposite directions

I thought Lapierre hit Boyle right on the numbers. I agree Boyle was in a vulnerable position, but the NHL Department of Player Safety (hah) will throw the book at Lapierre. Fourth line scrub takes out star defenseman (on a stretcher) with an illegal check from behind is probably going to be a double digit suspension.

Getting outshot 37-14 against the lowly Wild is “slaying it”?

I didn’t watch the game, but it looks like the Leafs beat a rookie, emergency call-up goaltender in his seventh NHL game with an insanely high 29% shooting percentage and only won because their goaltender stood on his head and made 36 saves.

Slaying it indeed.

Maybe we can trade for MayRay at the deadline for a 2nd...considering what a great PLAYOFF performer he is :roll:

That in tight spin around shelf goal last night was sick.

But we all know he has the ability and skill set to make plays like that every once in a while...no surprise there.

So far so good for Raymond.

The Leafs obviously like what they've seen in these first 7 games. We've seen him for 350ish games in Vancouver and know that consistency is the real issue here. No doubt that a change in scenery is a good thing for him, but time will tell.

Good for MayRay, glad to see him enjoying some success,the guy has paid his dues and the fresh start with a new team might be what he needed.
I'm sure he prefers being the flavour of the month as opposed to annual whipping boy :D

I always liked the kid, has talent, fast, likeable enough. His problem is just that, he looks like a kid. He does not strike fear into the opposition in the post-season.
We needed more assholes like Zack is all.

When the going gets tough, Raymond gets knocked on his ass, or does his famous perimeter button hook.
