I would take that slower pace game and have greater more respectable profiles in the game, tougher players, more fighting than this crap... the most ridiculous thing now though is the interference penalties, that's really f***ed up, you can't even bump a player 0.5sec after he dumped the puck basically...

The suspension is fine. He swung at Neilsons face with his stick. That is bulls*** and suspendible in any era of the game, don't try to justify that.

fighting is a PART of the game and players should be allowed to police themselves a little better than they currently do and there needs to be more respect out there, there is no doubt about it - but the game is HOCKEY first and foremost, not UFC

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

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.

Third career suspension, so the League's so-called "repeat offender rule" would have come into play. He's lucky.

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.

It looks like the owner's wallet.

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.

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

He will forfeit over $250K in his absence. That's a nice chunk of change, even for a multi-millionaire.
