That was a really dirty slew foot by Rinaldo. I have no idea why that guy is even in the league, he is legitimately a loose cannon.

Flyers seem to always have a total scumbag on their roster.

Simmonds is a turd, but he actually has some scoring talent.

"Philadelphia told me about Zac Rinaldo," said Shanahan. "He's a really big hitter. Hits hard. But they said to him that if you see 20 hits a game in your head, pick the best three. That's enough to be a physical, intimidating player in this League. When I hear coaching like that, that's when I'm thinking there's full buy-in there."

Shanahan somehow manages to make himself look like more of an idiot every single time he discusses the rules in the NHL.

Rinaldo is like a less talented Steve Downie 2.0 in Philly. Reckless and doesn't care. Didn't really clean up his game until he left Philly (but still isn't a clean player) and is a decent player. I doubt Rinaldo ever scores 10 goals at the NHL level though, let alone 20 like Downie did.

Holy crap..Kovachoo!!!

Ridiculous slew-footing preceding that and the NHL has to start taking that infraction a lot more seriously because it's crept back into the game the last several years after being something that was real rare and not as blatant.

yep. if they keep calling them as "tripping", and not giving any supplemental discipline, the problem wont go away

Rinaldo hit with 2 separate fines last night.

...because suspending him would just be crazy, right?

where's the logic in that? isn't shanny's whole thing about escalating punishments? if he got the first fine, he has a history. the 2nd fine, whether it happens 20 games later, or 20 mins later, should be worth a suspension. it's actually WORSE that he had 2 incidents in the same game. i still don't get how that slewfoot isn't suspendible

Because they refuse to acknowledge slewfoots as nothing more than a "dangerous trip"

but if it's worth a fine, then clearly it is an offense eligible for supplemental discipline. i don't get it.

He lost more by getting 2 fines totalling 5000 than he would have forfeited by being suspended for a game. His salary is THAT low.
