Exactly what has he done to merit a reputation for being "dirty"? Playing for the Flyers?

Just search youtube. He's dirty, but since he can put up points and isn't on every sports network, he doesn't get eyeballed.

I'm actually surprised he didn't get more, with the whole "using the stick as a weapon" thing.

Wait a second, this is Colin Campbell we're talking about. Never mind.

I await the day when anyone from any other team gets suspended for mugging a Red Wing. <_<

I hope you're comfy, you'll be waiting a while.

Didn't briere have a huge cheap shot on another player back when he was in buffalo? I seem to remember him cranking someone from behind or something

Edit.. Nvm he got cranked from behind by Ovechkin, I got my players mixed up

nope you are correct.. he retaliated the hit... and speared Ovechkin in the "Fig Leaves". I posted the video on the first page with his other suspension...

crash

What is Dipietro munching down on at the end of the vid?

Just warming up for the owner's wife. Why else do you think he gets paid so much?

i think because Briere is small, has a baby face and can score goals some don't realize he is a dirty player. he is a repeat offender and should have gotten more than 3.

Well... This saved me on fantasy PIM minutes last week (he got 17 PIM for this), but it is going to suck for my team starting now.

Not to mention bears a similar resemblence to the above English rocker.

Thank you! This is what I said earlier in this thread.

considering the NHL way of handling suspensions - way too many. 1 game is the most with usual NHL policy.

considering Briere's record and the fact that he's one of top league players plus has some history of dishing unnecessary hit - I'm glad someone had balls to hand this much punishment. if only the league kept handling the matter like that...

I think those suspensions will come in bunches until All Star break. NHL decided to teach players to play with less edge and it usually takes those 3-4 months to have the message received. but come playoff run and playoffs itself - expect a lot of old sh*t to come back and escape unseen. perhaps less than last season, but it's still going to be good ol' hockey.

overall, I agree with the league on the policy. it really got too bad last season and it's time to do something about

this business. there is a difference between hard hits and head hunting and I'm glad this is handled, even if the handling

is not perfect...

And yet, Matt Cooke has STILL gotten nothing for nearly murdering Savard.

But the blindside rule wasn't in affect when that hit occured right?

Let me preface what I'm about to say by openly admitting that I know that this makes me a bad person and one should never take pleasure in injuries, but...

I will openly cheer, without shame, if anyone ever takes a run/cheap-shot at Cooke which results in the end of his career.

Cooke is EXACTLY the type of player the game needs to get rid of - no respect for his fellow player or the game, and a abortion of a human being to boot.

I don't want his career ended, everyone deserves to be in a profession they enjoy unless you're one of those truly bad people out there doing really bad things. I just want to see someone catch him with his head down and hit him in the mouth with an elbow removing his teeth and giving him a Lilja concussion :)

I won't wish upon him a career ending injury, but I certainly wouldn't shed a tear if he's hit in the exact same manner that he laid upon Savard.

I don't see Briere as a dirty player. He's certainly not the punk type like a Cooke or a Perry. Has he done stuff in the past that he shouldn't have? Yes. Does he have a reputation for being a dirty goon? If he does, he shouldn't.

Fine, can we compromise - A career crippling injury, resulting in a minimum of 50 games missed?

I don't think Savard will ever be the player he was again...
