I'm sure he wanted to wait and see if the Rangers would win the series.  If they lost, you know the suspension wasn't getting reduced because it'd be regular season games. 

 

But Gary found a loophole and reclassified what Carcillo did under a different violation so he'd be able to play in the Cup Finals. 

 

I assume you're suggesting he did this all in an effort to make NY lose, considering they're a better team without Carcillo out there being a liability. 

 

Damn you Bettman, trying to stack the Rangers with garbage players by exploiting loopholes!

I wouldn't say Carcillo has been a liability. He's scored 2 goals (including one in OT against Philly) in 8 playoff games this postseason. Not saying he's an offensive threat every time he's on the ice, but he's not a liability. I suspect he will be back in the lineup for the Rangers in the finals.

Which is nearly half his point total for the entire year.  Even a blind dog gets a bone now and again.  Putting Carcillo in your lineup is line putting Tootoo in your lineup.  And I highly doubt anyone would insinuate that Gary Bettman was exploiting the rules in an unfair way if he did it to get Tootoo back in our lineup.  I think the general response would be "meh...great...now can we hurry up and scratch him so that Glendening and come and play some defense or something?"

You assumed wrong. I wasn't insinuating it had any conspiracy implications. 

 

It's the difference between keeping a player out of a few more regular season games to "send a message" versus keeping him out of Cup games.  As soon as playoff games become a factor, suspensions get shorter.

 

Carcillo is a moron and he gave a ref a forearm shiver.  He should sit 10 games, no matter which ten they are.  Play like an idiot, sit out of the chance of a lifetime for being an idiot.  Bettman caved.

Which is why you probably should have figured out I was in no way insinuating something that stupid.

I know, which is why I said he's not a constant offensive threat. He's just not a liability.

Carcillo should be sitting the full 10, regardless.

I think the refs should be given full face masks a choice of a mace or brass knuckles, and gloves and make the refs an active participant in fighting.

If he wins, you're suspended the ten games.
If you win, he can't call a penalty on you the rest of the game.

Regular season would be relatively normal, playoffs come around and all hell breaks loose.

I am genuinely excited for this series. It will be nice to watch the final without having to root so intensely against one team like previous years. I thought one or both of Boston and Chicago would be playing in this. 

 

I want the Rangers to win, but I won't be upset if the Kings do either. I really like Lundqvist and McDonagh especially though. After the WCF, I was pretty convinced that the winner of that series would ultimately be the champion for sure, but I could see the Rangers pulling it off. The Kings have played three consecutive seven game series already and might have somewhat of a letdown coming off Chicago, plus Lundqvist is easily the superior goalie with the way Quick has been playing. 

 

That being said, I find it tough to pick against LA as they always find a way to get it done. So, Kings in seven (of course) and Kopitar wins the Conn Smythe.

I'll be pulling for the team that's losing. Gotta lean towards LA a little for knocking Chicago out.

But if they win the Cup, that's two in three years, and then there's two teams in the West that could become modern dynasties. :-(

Well you've already suggested that Gary Bettman arbitrarily manipulated a loophole in the rules so that Dan Carcillo could play in the finals.  My question is, "to what end"?  Because it would help NY?  Because it would help LA?  Because the fan just love the guy?  As a personal favor to Carcillo?
