Before a whole mess of people go nuts over MM just know that it is TV, it is about ratings and presenting contrasting viewpoints.

Kostopoulos is too chicken to show up for an in person hearing, because he knows he was dead wrong and has no defense, here. I hope he's gets 20 games.

While I agree with Titanium that it's TV and all about ratings, etc., TV is a great place to display one's biases and ignorance. Milbury is a total moron. If ANY other player on ANY other team was injured like Stu was by a puke like Kostopoulos, there would be severe consequences. The other guys bring up the mild concussion to "the best player on the planet" :ph34r: as if that's comparable to what happened to Stu. Whatever.

As the other participants pointed out, there is no contrasting viewpoint. The rules are very clear, and video doesn't lie.

But, oh, well. Since it's just a Red Wing who was hit blindside with an elbow, head-shot resulting in a broken jaw, Kostopoulos is the best tough guy since Vladdy? <_<

Did you see Stu's reaction when he was headed down to the locker room. He was so pissed. I would be, too. Get better soon, Stu.

You can tell Milbury does not like the Wings one bit. BTW, Datsyuk doesn't have a mild concussion, he broke his wrist. Had the Wings not been on back to back games, perhaps Babcock would have bag skated the guys on the ice who didn't respond to the hit (I would hope so),


Finally someone that can post with actually integrity, nice to see. :thumbup: --Carman

He'll definitely get something for his troubles, especially with him not showing up to Toronto.

I love how Milbury sees nothing wrong with the hit on Stuart, but thinks David Steckel taking out Crosby is dirty. As far as I'm concerned, it's just another example of a player 'taking advantage of the situation', Mike.

I thought there was supposed to be a hearing about this incident, this morning? Anyone know the outcome, or did it not happen?

:lol: well played!!

Great we lose a tough Canadian and replace him witha soft euro. Lovely. We should atleast call up janik to try and replace some physicality. Now we have the softest defense in the NHL. 5 soft euros, and another soft American. Gotta give holland credit, he's made the wings so soft it's laughable. Guess I'll go watch a some Probert fight now to remember how the wings once were a tough and skilled team.

And you know what? We're still one of the top teams in the NHL. Sorry if it bothers you.

so... one more try here: no news on suspension for Kosto-puke-os?

Did they just blow off the hearing scheduled for today (reason: just a Red Wing, no biggie?) Re-scheduled said hearing? Gave the offender a raise and extension for his actions?

Maybe some of you closer to the action have heard, there is nothing on google news search.

Good. I read this morning that he was having a hearing to determine whether he'd be suspended or not but I couldn't find anything after that. Thanks for sharing!

6 games seems fair.I was at the game and most fans around agreed it was a dirty hit.Hope Stuart recovers soon so you guys can paste the Canucks.

Loo, if you google it now you'll get more responses than you can shake a hockey stick at. Bad grammar, but I mean well!

It is indeed six games, plus $29,000+ in salary? Did I read that right?!... :blink:

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Some of them on the Calgary board actually think this is too harsh of a punishment and that it's because the victim was a Wings player. :rolleyes:

thanks, they're all posted less than 10 minutes ago. :hehe: Shaking my hockey stick in their general direction... I guess 6 is better than no games - or a pat on the back.

Puke forfeits $29569.92, to be precise. It doesn't take him as long as it does me to make that amount (like half a year or so), so I doubt he really cares.

Perhaps if his absence causes hardship/losses to Calgary, they will not be so happy about such behavior. One can hope!

Stuart was dumb for putting his head/jaw in the path of Kostpoulos' flying elbow, I guess. :cool:
