i posted it in the other thread but i figured i would make a new thread. Discuss. Also answer the poll.

Was this too much? Or do you think it's reasonable.

I would have gone for someone else.  I mean hell, if you're gonna be out for that long, it should have been you know who.  If anyone deserved to have their face rearranged...

 

I guess that means we better not even breathe on those precious pansies.

I think it's about right.  He attacked the wrong guy, from behind, after the whistle, slew footed him, and punched him while he was down.  It was a VERY ugly incident and I'm not a fan of it.  Having said that, Neal should have got more too.

I knew he was going to get a big suspension. I was telling people he should at least get 10 games. You can't do that to a guy. I don't think it was too much.

And how many games did Oprik get for taking out Loui Eriksson earlier in that same game who is now out with a concussion?  Oh, none...that's right.

 

Oprik should be suspended as well after he gets off IR.

 

I fell bad for anyone injured, but Oprik got instant Karma and I feel nothing for him.

 

Also those refs in that game should be suspended.  2 guys out with concussions, a broken leg and Marchand almost got his head kneed off.  Terrible officiating.

I don't have a problem with 15 games for this.  I do have a problem with

 

Neal - 5 games for deliberately kneeing a defenceless player in the head

Clarkson - 2 games for going out of his way to lay a hit to the head on a unsuspecting player, and being a repeat offender.

Cowan - 0 games for deliberate elbow to the head, causing concussion on superstar.

 

Honestly for all the good Shanahan uses, they may as well employ Judge Nutmeg and his Wheel of Justice

"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

Orpik should have got suspended for a clean hit that wasn't even assessed a penalty?  Okay.

 Man, I really hope you're not defending Oprik.  He's a POS who's been suspended before, is known as a dirty player and has taken knee on knee liberties with many players including our own boys. 

 

To me, what happened to Oprik is Karma at this point.

Regardless of your disdain for Orpik, the hit was clean. It doesn't warrant a non-hockey related retribution.

Also, I know it's Helene, but this doesn't surprise me:

@HeleneStJames: Several NHL players I've spoken to opined Neal kneeing Marchand worse than what Thornton did to Orpik. Neal got 5 games, Thornton, 15.

10-20 was what I thought. 15 sits comfortably with me. Deserves every game he got.

Neal should have got more, but they got this one spot on.

Wonder what Mario L., Sindy C and the rest of this ***** organization promised Bettman and Shanahan for only giving Neal 5 games? If you giveThornton (first time offender) 15 there is no way that SOB named Neal can get away with 5. Can't wait, till some tough teams are going to take this crybabies by the horns and run Sindy + Malking out of the building. This coupled with the non suspension for that Flyers thug just makes so happy again knowing, that Shanahan will never ever hang at the in the rafters at the Joe.

 

Guy completely sold himself out, no integrity  at all.

Orpik is a dirty POS.  If you respond to dirty play with dirty play, you have no room to talk though.  If I was in Thornton's position and Orpik wouldn't go, I'd line up one of his guys and drive him through the boards would a good clean hit and tell him to thank Brooks for the hit.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

15 games seems fair considering what went down.

 

That said - I hope Marchand squares off with Neal, and later on this season Thornton hits Orpik hard against the boards every chance he gets.
