Good.  Now let's hope Abby gets better soon.


Money on the board!  Current total: $5

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Gotta love the special treatment the Pens always get since they are the league darlings.

 

Thornton, a first time offender gets an absurd 15 games for a gloved love tap, while the Pens players never seem to get more than 5 games, despite the fact they are repeat offenders for dirty HEAD shots, the thing the league always claims they want to get rid of...

Thornton was a different situation though... and personally I believe his was similar to how the Bertuzzi-Moore incident went down and that's why they gave it such a harsh suspension. 

 

Here, I didn't know Engelland was a repeat offender... otherwise I would have said fair. Since he's had a 3 game suspension prior, he should now have an 8 game suspension, but that's not how it works over at the department of discipline.

I am shocked that Engelland got anything at all.  It was Abby's fault for getting in the way, apparently.... but whatever.

s***zburgh fan thought Abby lunged with his head into Engelland's shoulder.


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

 I actually am a bit surprised at 5 games...thought he would get a few but he is not a dirty player AND he plays for Pens. Huh!



Money on the board-
Five bucks for any Miller, Andy or Glenny goal (and double to 10 bucks for Glenny if it's on the forehand!)
A buck for every Gus and Tatar Tuna goal
Two bucks a shut out....and I think Petey can post a few
And in honour of Marchy saving me from shotputting a bottle through the TV because of a Smith DERP moment, Five bucks for any Marchenko goal!
LETS GO RED WINGS!!!

I'm happy he was suspended but if that warrants 5 games then Neal should have been at least 8. engelland was at least trying to make a hockey play as opposed to intentionally kneeing someone in the head.

I can live with it.  It's honestly more than I thought he'd get considering who he plays for.

Yeah, 5 games for Neal is a joke but I am sure he will have to answer for that sometime.
