OMG, Gionta and Gerbe were both as dirty as they come, especially Gionta

Patrick Eaves ALMOST KILLED SOMEONE.

You're kidding, right? How many Game DQ's did those two get? They may have both been pretty liberal with their stick work, but rarely if ever did they endanger anyones health out on the ice like Diamond does on a regular basis.

Yeah and it's well documented that every "non-biased" announcer, analyst, coach, player & sportswriter in the country said it was a complete accident and not one bit dirty on Eaves' part.

Merrimack fan who also has an allegiance to Maine...who also happens to hate BC. I was at the game. Pat Eaves did not intend to injure Exter. End of story. Exter came racing out of the net. I dislike BC and their hoops and football team have had their share of thuggery, but Jerry York is a stand up man who has run a clean and winning program.

Is Diamond expected to play today against UNB?

THANK YOU!! Unfortunately, if something is said enough, people start believing it, as in the case of the Exter hit. Now if you want to talk about over the top thuggery, look no further than Prestin Ryan's viscious boarding of Tony Voce about 10 seconds after he scored a goal, though I'm sure Maine fans will insist it really wasn't "that" bad.....

Liberal with their stick work? Gionta carved folks up like the they were the Christmas goose.

Wow, I can't believe I'm reading you all think Diamond's hit was clean. It was a hit from behind and he deserved the 5 min. major. First game of the season and he can't even make it to the third period.

the broadcast announcers did not think it deserved 5, walrus did not think so.
and the refs were not all that certain, or they would have tossed him instantly rather than had a pow wow for a minute.

kinda odd that the most deserving victim in the history of hockey east is used as the yardstick for a dirty hit.

it is just not worth trying to discuss anything with anyone whose attitude begins with "my collar is up"

And don't forget Daren '"The Lumberjack" Haydar and Freddie "The Hack" Meyer. :D

The edge is what made these guys great players. Beloved by their fans and hated by many others. Occasionally dirty, always working it.

Contact to the head is a point of emphasis this year. Officials look to be getting the word out early. Didn't have to be a bad hit, just contact in the wrong place.

If the call was contact to the head, I didn't see it. I don't see how it was hitting from behind, the guy was skating behind the net, Joey hit him after coming around the net. If he did get him in the head then good call and Joey better learn. If not it was 2 minute minor if that

Please enlighten us as to how it was a dirty hit? From my perspective it was clean the whole way...the only thing I thought he could have been called for was a hit from behind as the Quinnipiac player turned at the last second. And if that was the call then the refs blew it because everyone knows that if a player turns like that it's his own **** fault if he gets hurt.

If that was a dirty hit then college hockey should do away with checking all together. Diamond never left his feet; Did not extend his elbow; Did not target the head ( Reminder: the player he hit was about 6'2 while DIamond is 5'8 on skates). It was obvious to any objective observer or knowledgable hockey fan that the player turned at the last [split] second. The right call, at best, could have been charging (just to keep the peace). But what we saw last night was what has become all too familiar in college hockey: An offensive puck carrier selling out his own body to avoid a hit, and the defensive player getting penalized for it. The referees also have to understand that people do not show up to watch them; Their time has passed. It seems to me to be a common case of a bunch of "over-the-hill", sub-par hockey players still craving the attention that goes along with being difference makers during the games. The referees are there to enforce the rules that are "cut and dry" in the rule book, not subjectively dictate the flow of the game. Their job is not easy. Nobody says it is. But that's where a good coach comes in and reminds them how fallible they actually are. Unfortunately we root for a team thats coach would rather stoicly stand with one thumb in his mouth and another up his ***** than stand up for his players. Wake up Tim!
