Kostopoulos suspended 6 games

Love how the Flames are bitching that the league only cracks down on hits when a Red WIngs player is the victim.

We should start a "Squashing Flames fan's ignorance" thread.

None ever "drop in" to give us their 2 cents, though. That seems reserved for "Hawkeytown".

I think they're afraid to - they know we'll beat them down rationally and intellectually.

"Was six games enough? Of course it wasn't. But when you have to deal with an NHL Players' Association more concerned with the offending player's lighter pocketbook than his victim's lighter head, it is, perhaps, the best we could expect. ... I'll take the suspension over the ridiculous notion that hits such as Kostopoulos' are an essential byproduct of such a manly game and that Stuart ... should have had his head up."

--Ken Campbell, the Hockey News, on Calgary's Tom Kostopoulos' cheap shot and punishment for breaking the jaw of Red Wings defenseman Brad Stuart

I hope Stu is doing well and feeling some better. No news locally, I guess, on how he's getting along?

I hope Kostopoulos is getting splinters in his butt from riding the pine. Unfortunately, he's probably somewhere warm on vacation waiting out his tragic 6 game suspension. <_<

I believe Stuart is in San Jose with his family, so I'm sure he's doing good. As good as you can be with a broken jaw.

ah, that's good to hear. He's been a brave little toaster, leaving his family in Cali, while he's playing in Detroit.
