I'd be upset too if the Pens lost the 45th leading scorer in the NHL for 3 games.

Caps fans should be pleased that it was only 3 games.

The roid-rager has intentionally hurt more NHL players than Matt Cooke.
One day he will do that to the wrong guy, maybe a Bruin and someone with a short fuse like Lucic will Bertuzzi him.
When that happens, Caps fans may have something to whine about. Til then... ta-da.

Here's a very well informed, non-biased opinion from the Official site's board:

Posted Today, 03:35 PM
The head was not targeted, the principle point of contact was the shoulder. Yes he did leave his feet but does the league really want to go down the road of calling anyone who leaves there feet for a hit in for a meeting? Every game I would guess you would be looking at 3-4 meetings minimum.

Another good one:

if Ovie gets suspended he should just say: you know what NHL, just go and fornication yourself, my elbow hurts from that hit, i am not playing in your all "star" excrement

However, If Ovi gets 3 games for this I think Michalek deserved at LEAST 1 game for his hit on Hendricks. Not as mad at the way Ovi was punished as I am the way Michalek wasn't.


Exactly. I wonder if the pro-Penguin broadcast group had something to do with that. Ovie's hit was "definitely suspendable"....but Michalek's was just "graphic." Suspension was never mentioned on the air when that happened. Really can't use "Ovie's hit resulted in contact to the head" as a reason for suspension if you don't hold Michalek to the same standard. By that argument, Michalek's hit was a greater violation since his elbow was the principle point of contact.

Maybe the most impressively uninformed and vitriol laced post:

was hoping Shanahan would have the balls to tell Bettman to fornication off


This league is ******* rigged and utterly disgraceful

Hell yes ban the All Star Game. . .

And next time, if your gonna get a suspension. . .make sure you get the suspension worth. 5 game suspension, 6 gam injury

I agree, Wideman should boycott the All Star game as well. fornication a suspension

Guess this just proves (again) the league all hate us.

fornication em, I hope this breeds the hatred and violence this team needs to succeed.

To pissed to carry on. . .

Oh AND WHERE THE fornication IS TED?!?!?!?!?!

This is the last straw and deserves only block votes against Bettman and the regime, and a vocal media assault against the NHL. Fines, suspension and every thing else be damned.

This one quotes the NY Post - digging deep:

Malkin is incredibly dirty and gets away with it all the time

Since you mentioned it:

Quote
Malkin, meanwhile, continues to be the league’s sneakiest dirtiest player, enabled by officials who continue to allow him to go scot-free for plays such as the one midway through the first period of the match at the Garden on Thursday where he low-bridged Brian Boyle to avoid a check and in doing so sent the Ranger up and over.

It was an act distinct from the one that got Brad Marchand suspended for going low on Vancouver’s Sami Salo only by speed, distance and the absence of league discipline.

Seeing as how the regular season is the caps playoffs, this is pretty close to a 9 game suspension.

True. Since this probably ends their quest for a President's Trophy they may as well cancel the season. They don't play for anything else in D.C.

Wow, I was expecting at least a fine for Z. I thought that being called for a hearing with the league over a hit was pretty much a guarantee of a fine at minimum. Sort of makes up for the no penalty/no fine/no suspension elbow that Carlson put on Cooke a couple of months ago.

Now just waiting for Subban to be suspended...

I'm guessing their reasoning was that Hendricks put himself in a vulnerable position and Michalek has a spotless reputation. Probably talked to him about how the onus is still on him to not hit Hendricks there and if it happens again he will have to face supplemental discipline.
