i was wondering if anyone has heard about any kind of suspension on his hit on Lebda? it's been a couple days now and i have yet to hear about this guy missing any games. i'm hoping the NHL doesn't screw up again and let Nieminen off without any kind of punishment

I believe Colin Campbell said on HNIC that there was going to be no suspension.

Why would there be a suspension? It didn't seem all that dirty of a play to me.

He shouldn't get off because he went to visit him in the hospital. If it was a clean hit, the guy wouldn't have ended up in the hospital in the first place.

If the NHL had the balls to take action ealry on, maybe players like Chris Simon would think twice about what they are going to do.

Maybe not Ville's hit specifically, but in general.

It was. Lebda had his back to Nieminen and Nieminen took advantage. Also, it appears that Nimenen had placed his forearm near the neck of Lebda to drive his head into the boards a little bit more.

It was dirty, but it didn't deserve a suspension, in my opinion.....

i think most of the reason lebda got a concussion was because he hit the metal santion.

dito.

not that Nieminen was a saint, but that was not a dirty hit. and suspending players just for hitting a Red Wing is... not exactly right IMHO biggrin.gif

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

True, but Nieminen has about as bad of a track record as Tootoo.

I can agree with that. Regardless, it was still boarding and intent to injure.

This may be true, but I think the real reason we want Tootoo's head is because he happens to be on a team that we're fiercely fighting for the division against. Nieminen, however, is not on a team that we have anything to worry about.
