I really want to see a replay before I call for the head of Orpik.

But I say just put the play in the back of your head, and get the revenge down the road if it deserves it that is.


The fact that he got a five-minute major and a game misconduct is, in my opinion, sufficient evidence.

I've seen some bad knee on knees only get a 2 minute(Ovechkin on Gonchar), and I've seen some clean hits get a game misconduct (Kronwall on Havlat).

Just saying it was a 5 minute major doesn't automatically mean it's a horrible and completely dirty play.

It wouldn't surprise me, because Orpik is a douchebag but I still want to see a video before I call for his head.

This kind of crap just shouldn't happen in the preseason. Period.

About this time last year, I was watching on TV as Kyle Okposo (I think it was him) was carried out of the Saddledome in Calgary on a stretcher, after Phaneuf laid him out like it was the playoffs. In that case, Okposo had his head down and it was a legal hit, but in my mind there's no excuse for patently dangerous plays in a meaningless game.

I'm very happy that Bertuzzi got in there and gave Orpik the business.

For most people who say the refereeing is terrible, they wouldn't be so quick to judge if it was called against a Red Wing player.

Just sayin....

I didn't see any video of the situation. Until I see a video, I am not going to draw a conclusion. The league will handle it the right way I am sure.

To my understanding it may be difficult to see a video as to my knowledge the game was not televised.

We should end Crosby's season in response and start a proper rivalry. No I'm not kidding.

This crap (knee-on-knee especially) shouldn't happen ANY time. It's a cheap, cowards move. Orpik should be sitting as many games as Franzen is out.

funny co incidence on this one.

Remember when Franzen took out Crosby in the playoffs in game 7? Think this hit has anything to do with getting even?

Im not saying, but it is an interesting opportunity to get even and not get reprimanded as there was no video proof. How convenient!

Hey, even if there was video proof, remember that FS Pittsburgh now has a history of covering things up (a goal last season that should have counted against the Pens, FSP withheld a vital camera angle from Toronto), so it wouldn't have mattered.

You are aware there are no replays, otherwise, you would jus take your classic route. Like a classis stuff in the background "boo-boo-boo"... "Crosby is good and he never cries, Orpik is big and he never thinks, Malkin is god and.... boo-boo-boo, boo-boo-boo"
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

apparently because of what franzen did to crosby in game 7 of 09 this doesn't matter... because that hit was way worse than the one that nobody has seen of orpik's

apparently franzen is the league's biggest *****

Psh... They can say whatever they want. They have Matt Cooke on their team. That guy is an embarrassment not just to the game but to humanity as well.

And again, we're talking about a city that showed overwhelming support for a friggin rapist.

Some good memories I have of Brooks Orpik are that "incredible" shift where he had like 5 or 6 hits in a row but the Wings still had the puck.

What are the odds that Orpik will play (yeah like he is going to get some kind of suppesion) in the final pre-season game? The classless Pens organization will get another pass again due to another classless individual that runs the league.

No way he's getting suspended. Boynton gets suspended for a gesture that wasn't even a 'throat slash' gesture (it was more of a 'cut it out/knock it off' gesture) and Orpik blatantly attempts to injure a guy in a spot where he was injured last season (and I don't care if there's no video, the Pens have a history of this cheap shot garbage, all starting with Cooke) and not a peep from the league. Are we really surprised though?
