What really got me was watching the Montreal - Ottawa free for all the other night, and absolutely nothing was handed down to any of them, including the Montreal guy (I forget who) who took his stick and whacked the Ottawa guy in the back of the legs with a two-hander.  They made 3/26/97 look like a Boy Scout campout.  And nothing was done to them - not one thing.  I am sad now I didn't watch the whole thing, and I'll be interested to see what happens tonight.  But even one of the Montreal players skated by the Ottawa bench and was yelling at the players and coach.  Come on, really?

 

I smell double standard...and it's rank.

 Apparently shooting a puck at a guy on the other team at the 19:59 mark of the 3rd in a 6-1 loss is totally sportsmanlike too.  Shanny's still watching the game tape, or did he just let it all slide cause stick work is ok in the NHL?  I'd love to see him "breakdown" that game in one of his Shanaban clips.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

You may just want to watch that DVD one more time...I don't remember the last time there was that much blood at a boy scout campout...even comparing it with that MTL-OTT game, 3/26 has it beat hands and turtles down...

 

I do understand the point you are trying to make though, but actually fighting is part of the game and really has no stipulations that you will be suspended for doing it.  It was a 5 on 5 brawl.  If someone had left the penalty box or the bench or even a bench clearing brawl, then there would have been suspensions, but fights in a single game are not subject for suspension.

 

edit: of course I am a little bias towards 3/26 because I was there in person...
