Let me start by saying I think he shouldn't get anything, Johnson went low and returned to the game... with that said, it was still reckless and I'm fine with the major and game...

Due to his stigma and how hot button it is, I am prediciting 1-2 games...

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

Here


Holland is a damn good GM. period.

prolly a couple games (u know the NHL)

I believe he should get fined but not suspended but that's not what will happen

Elbow nowhere near his head. It's more like an armpit to the head. He doesn't deserve to be suspended but you know he will just because it's Bertuzzi.

I don't really think he should get anything. As Lovin Jiri Fischer's picture has shown, his armpit was actually what he hit with, rather than his elbow.

According to the NHL Wheel of Justice, however, Bertuzzi's either gone for the season, or gone for the rest of his career, so take your pick*...

Shouldn't have been tossed. Shouldn't be suspended. Was tossed. Will be suspended.

Fined his and Lidstrom's salary, suspended for the rest of the regular season, playoffs, indefinitely until he either retires or plays for the Pens.

I kid.... 12 games.

Zero games IMO.

After seeing it, definitely warranted a major, probably a 10:00 misconduct, but I don't think a game ejection.

Zero Games.

The idiot Versus announcers said he should have gone shoulder to shoulder.. but in my opinion if he had done that he would have destroyed Johnson and sent him smashing into the boards.. He turned his back so he wouldnt hurt him and Johnson ducked under so Berts elbow and arm ended up riding up over him.. Easy to see why the call was made when you watch it at full speed, especially the angle that the referee would have seen.. but no games. Bertuzzi has been pretty careful about being physical ever since the Moore incident so I don't think he gets anything for this.

I think most players would probably get away with nothing or maybe a fine. I think Bert will get a couple though, just for his history, even if it was a while ago.

I dont think hell get anything, the refs made a good on ice call the way the elbow went up and the way theyre trying to get rid of headshots but on further review there really isnt big contact with the head and its not the primary point of contact. Also not blind side.

Whats more important is that the last few games Bert has been throwing the weight around, a sign of things to come for playoffs I hope !

I don't know what Bert was doing skating ass first into a hit, but it doesn't warrant any suspension. It was stupid, not malicious. The 5 and game was already too much. A couple seasons ago this would be 2 minutes, at most, but the league is struggling to figure out the headshot situation due to d-bags like Cooke.

I understand the game misconduct because I am sure the ref thought he hit him with his elbow seeing how fast the hit was and how high his arm went. Bert hit him with his tricep more than anything else but for him to swing his arm that high and leave his feet was stupid, especially considering how the league is looking at any head contact hit. It might get looked at and if anything does happen I think 2 games max.

Shrug, whatever the suspension is, it wouldn't change that hit from happening in the future if you want any physical play in the NHL. Should have been at worst a 2 minute penalty. Hawks guys obviously telling Johnson to stay down. It's theatre really.

That's fine ... 2 games or whatever. Gives Bert a bit of rest before the playoffs.

This. Clearly not an intentional elbow to the head. Can't blame the ref for calling it seeing in full speed, but later the VS commentators basically pointed out the Bert was trying to lay off and Johnson tried to adjust to the hit and that's the way it went.

I can't see more than a 1 game if any for this. We shall see....

Unfortunately that wouldn't have been an option. If you're assessed a major for elbowing due to a head/face injury, the game misconduct is automatic.

The little b*tch that bert hit had his head down. Maybe he should of kept his head up and he wouldn't of got hit there.

Refs only kicked him out the game cuz of his past
