I don't see anyway around a suspension, and with the obvious intent to injure, it should be 6+ games.

So that makes it ok? Wow you have a diluted way of looking at this game...

So was what Bert did to Moore ok, cause he didnt hit him that hard?

i never said it was okay did i? or are you blind?

he didn't smash his head against the glass, it jsut wasn't hard and he sold the injury, he wasn't injured.



So the head is allowed to be the principal point of contact (with BOTH HANDS THIS TIME) as long as no one is injured?

Zetterberg's helmet was broken as he skated away, if I saw that correctly. It looked like where the chin strap connects to the side of the helmet had broken off, and was hanging.


I saw the same thing when watching the replay. Helmet looked broken.

that head push into the glass was a love tap and hank sold it well. the punch that missed would have been far more devastating.

Wouldn't that be a dream. Weber's post season ended.

If Shanny has THIS video from this angle showing Weber slamming his head into the glass, there is NO WAY he won't get a suspension. If they let that go, it's negligent. What, bulls***...this has to be suspended on so many levels. Head shot, unsuspecting, history....He should not play in game 2

Especially with the added emphasis on protecting the head.

no, when did I imply that? or are you blind?

it was the same thing but about 100x harder, weber knows that there is a different culture nowadays which is why he didn't use a ton of force.

so your position is that while pushing Zetterberg's face into the glass, Weber thought about how the league is cracking down on headshots these days and so he decided to let up?

if weber would have connected with anything of extreme malice he would have koed z and sent him off on a stretcher. It is a plain and simple concept that some people here don't understand.

all im saying is it was not as bad as people make it out to be. the punch would have been far worse if it connected, ****** move by weber, i'd like to see him try that against a guy like bert and i hope someone gets him.

Hank initiated it. Yeah, Weber did not need to slam his head into the glass, but I doubt he'll be suspended. Bert had a chance to do something, but did not. Maybe he didn't see the play, but I doubt he would of done anything even if he had. This team is neutered. But there is next game. Let's see how this team responds. Here's my bet: nobody on Detroit get's in Weber's face. That's easy money!

Never coming out directly and saying it no, but you are seemingly defending it, by saying things like

It amazes me that you can think this way and call yourself a Wings fan, so Zetterberg sold it... got a question, have you EVER once laced up skates and played organized hockey? Or are you an Armchair Expert at the sport?

I think it's bulls*** how players on certain teams (not just Nashville) clearly goon it up at the end of games with intent to injure and get nothing out of it when it's the playoffs. What Weber did was not hockey. It was just being a thug. He wasn't hurt, but he could have been. And this won't be the last time that this ******* does something suspension-worthy.

I might be way off, but I consider it a privilege to make the playoffs, even when my team has made the playoffs for 99% of my life. Idiots like these don't deserve to be playing to represent their team in the fight for the Cup.
