Video- Connor McDavid On A Dangerous Play

via Sportsnet,

Check this out, as Oilers captain Connor McDavid was not too pleased with Flames defenceman Chris Tanev for his trip during an Oilers 3rd period goal, says it's a "dangerous play for me and the goalie," and he wishes it was called as a penalty more.

Just don’t touch McDavid when he’s trying to score.  If he’s driving the net, stopping him is dangerous for everyone.  Just don’t touch him.

Ha TG, Scott Stevens agrees with you.

I’m sure he’s also thinking of Giordano’s play on him in a meaningless end of season game, where iirc his knee ended up going into the post.
The rehab he had to do to get back and get back with his speed intact was crazy, according to what was later reported.

Ultimately, a defenseman is going to do what it takes within reason to eliminate a scoring chance. But goalies do get hurt on pushes and trips from their own defensemen, too.

It’s the going on TV to complain about it I don’t like.  He could’ve been like, it’s hockey.  But instead started lecturing about how dangerous it is for everyone, trying to stop him when he’s driving the net.  Crosby ish. 

I will say, he did can open McDavid but McDavid didn’t have to give about it, laying the whole victim fullhouse on the table “it’s dangerous for everyone but the defenseman”

Yeah Paul, the issue with Steven’s game plan is that McDavid plays this game of chicken when he drives the net.  McDavid in this instance is the epitome of putting yourself at risk.

Wouldn’t it be stupid not to talk about it publicly? It’s a long season so why not start working the refs now?
