$5k each.  Neal needed more.

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!

$5,000 isn't even a slap on the wrist. It's a tummy tickle. So: cross-check someone in the face, get tickled. Good job, Shanny. Way to send a message.


Don't Toews me, bro!

I think Shanny took a little too many hits to the head.

I think Shanny fears to be suspected of favoring the Wings, if he handed out a suspension against a player from Detroits opposition. I'm convinced of that, actually, since that scrub Cowen went unsuspended after ellbowing Pavs in the head...

I always thought the same. The only one he did get right was when Abby got hit, but that one was too blatant and obvious to not suspend.

You also get tickled for spearing a guy in the junk.  Both should probably have gotten a game off.

Na, the penalties were enough.  The fines were within reason.  A suspension would have been over the top. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

They honestly could have both got more, but especially Neal I guess as he's a constant repeat offender.

that is ok... I do think Neal needs more than that being a repeat offender. However, I was afraid Legwand is going to get a couple of gaames too in this case.


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

This has already been discussed in the Neal thread.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
