  1. Gudas is always walking the line. Key is to play on the edge without crossing it. He just may have this time.

    • Unfortunately Gudas is a player that hits to hurt & that shouldn’t be part of hockey. The idea of checking or hitting is to remove the puck from the player, player from the puck or player from the play, not leave the player lying on the ice injured as you hit him way harder than was required to achieve any of the 3 above. Then add in that he’s reckless & crosses the line constantly. Players like this need to be removed from the game.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving Lyle.
