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.

I do agree with your post, however I do expect things like this to happen even more in the preseason, only because guys are playing for jobs. Even Phaneuf! Dion is a great player, but he is not Lidstrom status and we all know what Darryl Sutter can do to players that take shifts off! My not saying guys should take runs at each other, but this is their job on the line as well. Just sayin!!

I'm all for it... but everybody better get ready to hear some serious Moore talk whenever Bertuzzi gets in a fight if he does decide to be an enforcer...

I hear serious Moore talk every time Bertuzzi does anything of note, whether it be physical or scoring a nice shootout goal.

The thing that makes this even worse is that the knee-on-knee rule is one of the ones the league has specifically said they are going to strictly enforce this year, along with the throat slashing type gestures as demonstrated by a quick suspension of Boynton. None of the media outlets even had that "infraction" on their radar until the suspension happened. EVERY media outlet is reporting the Orpik cheapshot yet we hear nothing from the league about it. Not even that they are looking into it or anything. This is how the bias for Pittsburgh s*** gets started.

So is it too late to offer Chris Simon a tryout? Maybe just for the last preseason game.

It seems to be the big debate whether the hit was intentional or not. I don't think that should matter. When Knees are involved, it should be an automatic suspension. Sometimes players unintentionally shoot the puck over the glass and it's still a delay of game penalty despite being unintentional. Same standards should apply to knee on knee. Hopefully that would make players play more conscious on the ice.

Bumping this thread because I watched Game 6 of the 2008 finals last night, just.....because :)

And I don't know if anyone remembered it last week, but Orpik put Helm out of game 6.......with a knee-on-knee hit. He also gave Flip a smack in the chops after he scored the 2nd goal, but thats not as relevant as the fact that the guy has previous.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Still not shocked that he got away with it, even being a repeat offender. Bunch of pricks on that team.
