So lemme get this straight.......

-Intentionally slam an opponent's head into the glass - fined $2,500.
-Say the officiating is less than stellar after no penalty was called on a dirty hit that sent a star player off on a stretcher - fined $10,000.

Yep, seems legit.

This is getting way out of hand. The NHL is far too protective of their incompetent officials.

The NHL suspends Torres indefinitely which basically means they agree that the referees missed the call and it was a dirty play/hit. Go figure :!: So now Quenville is fined $10,000 for agreeing with Shanny and Dept of Player Safety.

It's crazy how $2,500 is the highest they can fine players, which on average? make more than coaches I'm assuming right? Anyways you get my point. If it's valid.

NHL's new handbook for player safety and supplementary discipline...

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

On the other hand...

Both Quenville and the bad officials get screwed. Winning day in my book.

I read somewhere that Torres decided to delay his hearing until today instead of having it on Wednesday. Probably so that Shanny could see just how injured Hossa is.

Also, as I said in a different thread, CBC reported that the NHL held a conference call before the playoffs started with every head coach and GM in which Gary Bettman clearly iterated that there would be a zero tolerence policy in regards to speaking critically of NHL officials and that anyone who did would be severely punished.

I don't think players can delay their own hearings.


Can they?
