Six games? Lame.

Vancouver's board has over 1,000 posts on this issue. I found the most hilarious one to be, "If I was the Vancouver fan behind the WIld fan who messed with Ripper, I would have introduced my fist to his face."

I would have given him 8 if I were the one making the decision...not sure why, but 8 just seems a bit more fitting

8 would be fine with me. However, it's not like they're exactly going to be missing him.

Didn't Rypien miss a game while suspended indefinitely? So it's more like 7 games.

pretty sure that game he missed is part of the 6. so it will be that game and 5 more.

i think.

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

This exactly. As part of the NHL's announcement they addressed the fact that the 1st game he sat out counts as part of the 6.

Seems like an ok amount. The guy doesn't have any history of doing anything remotely close to this so that likely limited the amount of games to 6. How many games do you think these guys would've gotten?

Yeah, I agree. Not that I really care either way, just seems like it should be a few more, if not based on the incident itself, then based on how STUPID Rypien is to even let the incident happen.

I heard yesterday that two of them got 6 games, including Mike "The Shoe Shiner" Milbury, and one of them got 8 games. Who knows what it would be now...

milbury was on nhl live yesterday and when asked he said he thinks he would have at least gotten half a season and probably a full season in todays environment.

kinda funny to think how we have all turned into such ******* about this.

What he did was stupid but the NHL is more f***in stupid for handing out 2 game suspensions for head shots and 6 games because they are embarrassed by a players behavior.

I'm surprised how small the suspension is, considering how players have been suspended for much more in player vs. player interactions.

You'd think attacking a fan for no reason would get treated more severely than a cheapshot on a player.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

And they didn't even address the "sucker punch" or the "abuse of an official".

From Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

Soon after Gary Bettman slapped Rick Rypien with a six-game suspension Friday, the NHL commissioner called the Wild fan who the Vancouver Canucks agitator accosted and offered him dinner and some tickets.

"He said, 'Sorry about the events, and players should never, ever put their hands on a fan,' " said James Engquist, appreciative of Bettman's gesture. "I thought that was very nice of him. I mean, what do you say at that point? You're talking to the commissioner of the NHL. I thought it was really respectful for him to give me a call."
...


"Mess up tomorrow, don't mess up now".
