Didnt I give it all away for 12 years straight?

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Ryan Anderson Jersey .ca. Hi Kerry, A question on kicking the puck in. You probably saw the Edmonton game against Vancouver where in the dying seconds, David Perron clearly kicked it towards the net. Now I know the rule is if you kick it and it deflects in off the goalie, it doesnt count. However, as it clearly shows in the reply, a few inches before it got to the goal line, Miller reaches back and accidentally pushes it into his own net. Isnt that considered an own goal as before it deflected off Miller to go past the goal line, Miller put it in his own net? Im not a fan of either team but shouldnt that have been a goal? If he didnt reach back, it would have deflected off him from the kick (or go in directly if it didnt deflect off him) and be a clear NO GOAL. Am I missing something? Thanks, Max Max: The situations where a legal goal can be scored following a distinct kicking motion of the puck by an attacking player are minimal and precise. Rule 49.2 states that a goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who kicks a puck that deflects into the net off any player, goalkeeper or official. The rule also provides some clarification with regard to deflections following a kicked puck that enters the goal: i) A kicked puck that deflects off the body of any player of either team (including goalkeeper) shall be ruled no goal. ii) A kicked puck that deflects off the stick of any player (excluding the goalkeepers stick) shall be ruled a good goal. iii) A goal will be allowed when an attacking player kicks the puck and the puck deflects off his own stick and then into the net. iv) A goal will be allowed when a puck enters the goal after deflecting off an attacking players skate or deflects off his skate while he is in the process of stopping (NEW). If David Perron had gotten his stick on the puck prior to it crossing the goal line or if the puck had deflected off any players stick (excluding the goalkeeper) the Edmonton Oilers would have been credited with a legal goal. What must be considered on this play and in direct answer to your question Max, is the difference between a deflection and more specifically possession and control of the puck. Possession is described in rule 56 (interference) as the last player to touch the puck, other than the goalkeeper. Any attempt by the goalkeeper to make a save is therefore not deemed possession of the puck. Possession and control of the puck are synonymous as referenced in rule 57 (tripping) and as it pertains to the potential award of a penalty shot. This rule states, Control of the puck means the act of propelling the puck with the stick, hand or feet. It is thought of as a deliberate act of controlling the puck. Once Perron used a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck toward the net and Ryan Miller attempted to make a save, the goalies action constitutes a deflected puck off Millers blocker. As stated in the rule, no goal can be scored in this situation. I have to believe that the review took an extended period of time to ensure that the puck was not touched by Perrons stick or it did not perhaps deflect off the stick of any other player with the exception of Millers goal stick. Referee Gord Dwyer made the correct ruling on the ice to disallow the goal. The refs decision was subsequently confirmed through the video review process. David Wesley Jersey . -- Zach Johnson is like most players at the World Challenge, not sure whether hes still playing in 2013 or if hes in the middle of the new wraparound season that officially started in October. Pelicans Jerseys 2021 . The Flames announced Monday that Treliving, a former assistant general manager with the Coyotes, will take over the vacant GM spot in Calgary. "Im ready for this,"Treliving said.VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Chad Johnson made a sharp cut to free himself from a defender, and then hauled in a pass at the 53-yard line. Yes, the 53. Football is going to be a little different now for the former NFL star. The receiver who once changed his last name to Ochocinco might be hearing a lot of "O Canada" this summer, and he insists hes humbled for that opportunity. Johnson was on the field with the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL on Tuesday for the start of their three-day minicamp, and theres a very realistic chance that he will be with them when their season starts for real in June. "Its just football. Its football," Johnson said. "Its not about Montreal. Its about the opportunity to be able to play football again, something I love." Its something he lost two years ago. Johnson last appeared in an NFL game during the 2011 season with New England. He was in training camp with the Miami Dolphins -- his hometown team -- the following summer, but his contract was terminated one day after he was charged with misdemeanour domestic battery. A plea deal was eventually worked out, but after a probation violation Johnson wound up going to jail for a few days anyway after a judge objected to the way he slapped his attorney on the backside in celebration. He hasnt played since. "A horrible mistake," Johnson said. "A dream of mine since I was 4 years old was taken from me, rightfully so, by my wrongdoings and I just want to get back to doing something that I love to do, regardless of where it is. Montreal, flag football, back in the street the way I grew up . I just want to play football." The Alouettes have a history of not judging players by their checkered pasts, as evidenced by how they once gave former Nebraska running back Lawrence Phillips a chance on what became a Grey Cup-winning team in Montreal. "Its all business," Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said. "Its real. Hes in great shape. He wants to play and well see how things are." Popp shrugged off the notion that Johnsons presence is a publicity stunt. "None of you would know it was here unless it got tweeted out," Popp said. Zion Williamson Jersey. And Twitter does play quite a role in this story, since Johnson -- one of the worlds most popular athletes when it comes to social media -- used the power of his 3.6 million followers to help get the Alouettes attention. "Power of Twitter," Johnson said, grinning. The Alouettes were working out at Dodgertown, where some schoolkids were playing baseball on a nearby field. When their game ended, about a dozen of them came over to the football field to chant "Oc-ho-cin-co!" repeatedly. Some fans wearing his old Cincinnati Bengals jerseys watched, as did a couple in Patriots colours. "Like a kid again," Johnson said. He showed Tuesday that he can still run routes, and right there is why Montreal is eager to take a closer look. The CFL game is very much passing-friendly, and that can be at least partially attributed to several rule deviations from the NFL game. Teams in the CFL have only three downs to gain 10 yards instead of four. The field is 10 yards longer from goal line to goal line, is about 10 yards wider, and the end zones are 20 yards deep -- twice as long as those used in high school, college and pro play in the U.S. Montreal quarterback Troy Smith, the former Ohio State standout, said most people dont realize how much talent is in the CFL. And he believes Johnson can make an impact. "I know hes going to bring some fun and excitement to the team," Smith said. In short, even though theres 12 players on the field per team instead of 11, theres plenty of room for offences to manoeuvr. And in Canada, receivers cant be blocked or jammed unless theyre within a yard of the line of scrimmage. Of course, if Johnson heads to the CFL, he wont be exactly getting rich. The salary cap in the CFL is $4.4 million per team -- Johnson has had years where hes made about twice that much by himself. The average salary is around $85,000. "I dont even need a check," Johnson said. "Didnt I give it all away for 12 years straight? Think about it. Did I ever care about money when I played throughout my career? Still dont. I want to have fun. I want to enjoy the game. Thats it." ' ' '
