well, it doesn't help the Wings, and we still lost the game, so the league figures why not?   So inconsistent.

:lol: My thoughts exactly. The dive he took when Smith crosschecked him after the hit was brutal too, deserved a punch in the face. Like Columbus is going to miss Comeau for 2 games...

I think 2 games is excessive, I would have been fine with a 5 minute major and a game mis-conduct last night.

that might have helped the Wings during the actual game, so... no.  This suspension is meaningless and won't stop other teams from targeting what is left of the Wings' roster on the ice.

I was a little surprised there was even a hearing, but honestly players keep being so stupid about these hits from behind.  If sitting for a couple games is what it takes to get their attention, so be it.

See I don't think 2 games will help deter players from making these hits, in the heat of the moment players forget about the punishment that's why we keep seeing hits from behind and head shots. Either something drastic has to happen like huge suspensions or the league has to allow players to protect themselves from head shots like in the old days. Either way I don't think the hits from behind or head shots are going anywhere, there's just too much adrenaline on the ice.

I agree that missing two games won't necessarily deter players but I do believe being listed as a repeat offender does.

How much do penalties go up for repeat offenders?

It's relative to the severity of the offence but It's one of the (if not THE top) factor in determining the penalty served.  Other than the action itself of course.


Injury would probably be a close second or arguably right there with it.

While things certainly don't look positive for the Wings, fans are throwing in the towel with a month left in the season and 2 points out of a playoff spot?  Really?  Forgotten about last season already? 

 

Zetterberg and Howard willed us into the playoffs last season. We're missing our top two players (one of whom is Zetterberg), top 20 centers, one third of our most exciting line (Jurco), our backup goalie (who's been better than our #1), and Howard's mojo. Also, the shootout issues and our goal differential means we won't win a tiebreaker.

Soooo you're saying there's a chance.....

Maybe it's just plain karma. Like when Hossa ditched the Pens for us because we beat them for the Cup, and then they went on to beat us for the Cup.

 

We wanted the switch to the East because it'd be easier. We basically stole Alfredsson from Ottawa. Alfredsson said we had a good shot at the Cup. We dicked around with Nyquist because, zomg, Cleary makes us better. We boasted of our forward depth. We sent ten guys to the Olympics (ooooo, look at us, we're so skilled). And - I'll be a man about it - I was stupid enough to predict that we'd make some real noise this season.

 

We were asking for an enormously disappointing season.

Also, we moved on from Flip. I can't believe we didn't see his replacement being injured for the whole season coming. And, also, we bought out Colaiacovo because he's so...injury-prone.

I agree that being labeled as a repeat offender should make players think twice before laying a big hit. But putting that aside and taking the Comeau suspension as an example, is it right that he now has a suspension on his record for the hit on Smith? I don't think the hit warranted a suspension since we've seen plenty of hits that resembled Comeau's and some even more severe go unpunished. If the officials did their job Comeau would have gotten a 5 min major and a game misconduct, but because the ref's botched the play Comeau now has a suspension. Though to be clear I'm not defending the hit, it's just the fact that Shanny and his office seem to have selective vision when it come to punishments. The hit that Dats got to the head earlier in the year was ignored and here there is a 2 game suspension, I just wish that the NHL would be more consistent when doling out punishments.
