Taking something offered from the team as a gesture is not the same as actively seeking it...




Nothing wrong with contacting people and letting them know that you are unsatisfied and that the incident will probably prevent you from spending any more money on their product. I wouldn't wait around for an offer. Why not be proactive?

God... so many losers on this board it's hilarious. What happened to the good old days when you could beat someone's ass who deserved it and go about your business?

Huh? Guess what? This isn't old time hockey and the fan did nothing to Rypien. Your video gives no rise to the argument that this particular fan deserved what Rypien did to him. He didn't grab at Rypien's equipment or threw a punch at him. He was CLAPPING. Since when is clapping considered an action that deserves a 'professional' (and I use the term loosely) hockey player putting his hands on someone?

Rypien's a punk. Glad to see he's getting the book.

Exactly. I wouldn't sue for tickets or crap like that, but when i got a call from them apologizing asking what they could do, I'd ask if we could get some tickets and maybe a signed jersey and then let them take it from there.

I can pretty much guarantee with absolute certainty that if this really happened to you or your teenage son, you'd be singing a different tune.

the fan doesn't deserve s***. no tickets, no jerseys, no apology. he got pushed/grabbed for 1 second of his life. i can only imagine the long term emotional distress he will endure! what a bunch off****** vaginas you guys are.

once cal clutterbuck told me to f*** off and made an obscene gesture towards me when skating off the ice while in the ahl. what did i do? i came back at him even harder the next period. no need to whine about how mean he was. i was ribbing him because it was fun and i deserved anything he did in retaliation.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

There's a huge gap between getting flipped off and getting grabbed and shaken for a few seconds. Hockey players are employees. It's not good business if employees are assaulting customers. This isn't rec league hockey. Lol.

i think something over the line must have been said. these players deal with tons of belligerent fans every night. so i find it hard to believe the altercation was unprovoked. additionally, malhotra seems to have heard it too as he gestures that the fans should be tossed. bieksa seems very peeved and even smacks his stick on the glass at the folks 10 or 20 seconds later. it doesn't necessarily justify what rypien did, but i think lots of people are trying to play the poor innocent helpless fan card. and 99 times out of a 100, then fan gets whats comin to them.



doesnt matter, these guys are paid professionals, and he severely disrespected his own team by doing that. heckling has been part of sports since it started. the canucks got spanked and couldnt take it, poor sportsmanship all around by the whole team i say.

The 5 game floor is perfectly acceptable in this case. I think 10 games would be the best. You cannot put your hands on the fans no matter what happens.

From TSN:

Vancouver Canucks forward Rick Rypien has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing with the league for his altercation with a fan during the Canucks game against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.
...

...
According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman should be directly involved in the process because the incident involved a fan.
...

...
It appears as though Rypien's hearing will take place on Friday and since it is an in-person hearing, the suspension will be at least five games in length. Rypien will not be in the lineup Wednesday night as the Canucks face the Minnesota Wild on TSN.

Exactly. Its not the act of shoving or how much damage was done to the fan. Its the fact that a player reached into the stands with intent to cause harm. Under no circumstances should a player even think about touching a fan.


How do you know there was intent to cause harm?


You absolutely CAN NOT put your hands on a fan. period. He's lucky to be alive, that kids father should have stabbed him or something, he would have been justified.


Are you serious? First I doubt highly the person is a kid. If I had to guess he is in his 20's and that is old enough to vote, die in the military and drink. As for the father and stabbing.... think about that statement for a second.

Ok, thanks guys, i was most upset about the report they were ejected.
I'm still for the suspension, season and playoffs. They need to fit all arenas with glass covering at least the opposing team, for both player and fan safety, those fans look really close.


Again Rypien is an idiot for what he did but there is no chance in hell it will even come remotely close to a season let alone the season and playoffs. If by some miracle it does my mind will be simply blown to pieces by the stupidity of the NHL.

i think you're overreacting. think back to the milbury shoe incident. no suspensions over 10 games. and milbury beat a fan with his shoe!


Lol! Cause it's funny, the shoe thing not your statement. haha

According to the brother of the "Rypien fan", all the kid said was, "Way to be a professional!"

It was Rypien's responsibility as a player, and AS AN ADULT, to control his temper. He lost it and he laid hands on a fan in anger, and he's going to suffer the consequences.

I think that's the bottom line here.
