    Oh crap rumor is the Pens new GM is going to be Jim Rutherford :facepalm:

    Carolina has been terrible for years in large part due to his management so really less than thrilled to see where this is going to end up

    It's true :wallbash:

    Bylsma is gone and both of Shero's assistants are still in the organization, the interim GM is staying as an associate GM, Guerrin is an assistant GM... this is not looking promising. So basically we've got a guy with a terrible track record surrounded by Shero's inner circle :ugh:

    The Bylsma thing is bullshit too... I don't mind that he's gone, but ownership saying it's the new GMs decision then the new GM saying ownership wants a change in direction so we're firing Bylsma is crap. Smells like ownership trying to dodge responsibility if the coaching change goes south.

    You really don't expect 5-4 games when Quick and Lundqvist are in net though :lol:

    ugh. That goalie interference non-call really killed the Rangers.

    I really don't like how goalie interference rule is being implemented at the moment. The way it was ruled this time is the "fair" way IMO, although it is probably not the way it's usually called.

    I simply think that whenever dman is pushing the forward into his own goalie, there should have been no goalie interference. And if you look at goalie interference calls, 90%+ of all calls come from dman pushing the forward into his own goalie. I think that's stupid and not fair in any way.

    The rule actually explicitly says that and IMO the officialls should simply follow it, instead of always ruling the other way:

    As said, 9 our of 10 times officials don't respect this part of the rule.

    It seems to be pretty random if they enforce the clause above or not. Last night with the goal on Lundqvist that was definitely how they called it. Actually you could see the explanation the ref was giving by his hand motions that he was saying the Ranger player cut off the King coming around from behind trying to move out in front of the net so he had nowhere to go but into Lundqvist so there was no call. If the Rangers D hadn't been there it would have definitely been waived off and a penalty.

    I do agree they need to be WAY more consistent with how they call that as it has been all over the place in the playoffs.

    Quick was in his zone tonight, maybe his best game in the playoffs.
