    Mike Matheson body slam of E Pettersson

    Not surprised. Bit light but at least he is on the record now and has to be more cautious moving forward.

    Justin Schultz Out 4 Months

    Salary cap will pretty much prevent Pgh from making any moves to acquire someone like Faulk, unless they can move a similar AVV. It’s now up to Rikola and Chad R to fill the defensive gap unless Schultz returns. Big I loss on the PP, as he was their best shooting defenseman on the PP.

    Cue the Justin Faulk to Pittsburgh rumors.

    Justin Schultz Out 4 Months

    Unfortunately, Justin seems to be jinxed.

    OUCH! Hate to see that.

    Also, get ready for JUUSO RIKOLA to be the next big thing!
  8. Can we just talk real quick about how Justin Schultz's foot was pointed the wrong direction?!

    Mike Matheson body slam of E Pettersson

    Like the Canucks, Pettersson was the only bright spot of my PCFL team this year. This is brutal

    Mike Matheson body slam of E Pettersson

    I think he needs to serve a couple games at least. I like 5. Deliberate attempt to injure, which he did. I know he’s not a repeat offender but what the hell! anyway it’s a phone hearing so probably a fine.

    Mike Matheson body slam of E Pettersson

    Didnt look good at all. And you can see it was premiditated. Just seconds before he looked at him and crossed him in the back. I like matheson but that was a bonehead play . Prolly gets a small suspension or a big fine as a first time offender

    Mike Matheson body slam of E Pettersson

    I’m with you on this. In addition how can 4 professionals in stripes miss this?! Does the league hold these guys accountable for blatant non calls! NHL officiating is so damn inconsistent. It’s crazy. I do hope the DOPS gets it right though. They sent a message on Tom Wilson. At least Wilson’s infraction was a hockey play. This was a takedown.

    Mike Matheson body slam of E Pettersson

    I take issue with Green telling the team not to go after Matheson because of the score. He wanted to win the game. What a crock of shit! Sorry guys! Here comes the old The Old Rainman surfacing again. Sort of where our conversation left off last week about fighting in the league. If it was me Matheson would have been used as a mud flap on the team bus.

    Exclusive alternate angle of the incident... Though seriously that was a pretty shit move. Im guessing he gets like 3 games for it
  15. Man that was such dirty play by Matheson. A WWF move nowhere near the puck. As a result a budding star and Calder leading candidate out concussed. This type of play is such bullshit. Matheson has a hearing tomorrow. I’d like to see 5 games but expect 2. Anyone else with a take on this. oh and also after saying they were getting character guys to be hard to play against and protect their young stars, well Vancouver had no response whatsoever. Well they got their 2 points. I suppose that’s something. But that is not being hard to play against and their fans are pissed.

    I love NCAA hockey but it's very seldom on TSN, Sportsnet, RDS, or TVA. Anyone know of a website where I can stream the games? Would have love to see Hughes vs. Hughes last night. Anyway, James raises a good point about the European games. They've certainly screwed up the standings with the disparities in games played. You'd the think teams that have only played two would have played last night to catch up.

    Friday is also not a good night for TV ratings, for whatever that's worth. And it's the first night of the NLCS. Does seem really strange though. Gotta wonder if these European games are actually doing any good, or just screwing up the schedule.

    apparently it's out of respect for college hockey as it's their first full slate of Friday Games.

    Anyone know of a reason why the NHL has no games scheduled tonite? A week into the season, before the NBA starts, and they have no games on a Friday night. They bury Connor for the first week, then go dark for a night. Hopefully they have waaaay smarter dudes working in their scheduling department than me who have their reasons as to why they're not pushing the league more vigorously.

    Yeah that's the real trick... what rainman is alluding to. If you're going to eliminate fighting, there needs to be a corresponding improvement in officiating (both on-ice and post-game). I think that improvement is happening with respect to cheap shot hits and stuff like that. When it comes to what started this whole conversation... a player taunting the opposition or whatever... that's an unusual case. Football does penalize taunting pretty strictly, especially at the lower levels (high school/college). I imagine hockey could/should follow suit. But it's always a fine line, as the NFL found out with TD celebrations. They banned those and no one liked it. Now they're back. Scoring a goal (like a TD) is a big deal, and worthy of a fun celebration. I guess to sum it up... fighting is required for combating violations of the unwritten rules. The rules that the refs can't actually enforce, but players should still follow.

    My last comment on the state of fighting in the NHL, it's a lot better than it use to be. We're down to about a couple dozen incidents requiring a suspension per season. And unlike a decade ago, the NHL has a process that's become fairly effective in dealing with an incident.

    Marchand jumps Eller

    This going to be my last comment on this because we're just chasing our tails. Crosby and Malkin aren't in many fights (but they would be) but as I said take fighting out of the game and every little rat and weasel will take liberty with the top players because they won't have to pay the price. Who's going to pound the day lights out of the rats/weasels and get thrown out while they continue to stay in the game. There are reasons why the league is no hurry to remove it and it's not a over site. I've been to a gazillion games in my 70 plus years and never once I have seen people get up and leave a game because of a fight or many fights.

    Honestly, it doesn't even take a full on fight in the NFL. Phillip Lindsay got ejected for this: Side Note: I started Lindsay in one league during this game. Not. Impressed.
