Kronwall suspended one game

toby, its not about Kronwall and the hit, which was to the head and he left his feet, its more about Palat, Garrison not getting suspended for literally the same thing.

Agreed.

It's great that the DoPS is trying to get head shots out of the game. But...if Palat-on-Glendening doesn't warrant a suspension, and Garrison-on-Abdelkader doesn't warrant a suspension, and Wilson-on-Visnovsky doesn't warrant a suspension, and Byfuglien-on-Perry doesn't warrant a suspension, and Kronwall-on-Kucherov does warrant a suspension...has the DoPS really done its job this month? With this decision to suspend Kronwall, have they really helped to make the game any cleaner? Have they really educated anyone? Have any standards or guidelines been made any clearer? Does this set a clear and logical precedent (and was there a precedent for the precedent)?

Well this is a lopsided call someone clearly wants TB to go further and they know Kronwall suspended is the way to cripple us. Seriously the stupid calls in this game and the series. This is a huge hit to our team and it feels like we were targeted for failure. I hope we win this game tonight and the league can choke on that cockmeat sandwich.

What the hell is up with this whole force thing, people are defending no suspension for palat because the hit is with less force than kronwall's?! It's a hit to the head, so now you can hit someone in the head but with less force? Bravo NHL I expect no better wording from a league that uses the word charging to define the penalty of charging...

Even Shaw on Jackman, I don't give two s***s about Chicago or St. Louis, but its about the NHL being a joke. If none of those hits were not suspension worthy, then neither should Kronwall...

It really baffles me because they are in a lawsuit with former players about head injuries. Not a good image to say we are trying to eliminate illegal hits to the head, and many go unpunished. If I'm the former players I would go through each one of these and make hours and hours of footage. Seriously it's only a matter of time before someone takes a shot to the head from a sucker punch and sues the league.

What about all the charging that's taken place and the full contact with Mrazek in this series? Just because the goalies have all that padding doesn't stop concussions when your crashed into by a solid body traveling at 15km hour with 200lbs plus slamming into you.

One day later and still pissed might not even watch the game now.

NSSL = national super sissies league

For the love of god bring in McKee and give them a reason for suspension.

Kudos to Tampa they didn't even cry about it this bulls*** league needs to be run by real men instead of ******* idiots

Just watched the explanation video of the DoPS, and the suspension still makes no sense to me. Kronwall never leaves his feet completely and makes exactly three strides before hitting Kucherov. I don't see that this is charging at all. Besides, you don't suspend a player for a hit that may or may not be dirty for a Game 7. You just don't.

I can only come to two conclusions about league office and DoPS.

1. They are either the biggest group of irrational, illogical, and inconsistent Ivory Tower jerks that there ever was.

2. Or, they actually don't even watch all the games and rely only on headlines (or interns) to notify them about stuff that is trending and they are basically spineless robots controlled by their marketing office.

In reality, will it be Marchenko or Kindl in tonight? Kindl hasn't played a game in a while but is left-handed fill in for Kronner. Marchenko played well to begin but then was taken out, reasonably, for Smith.

My pipe dream is Kindl and Marchenko both in and Zid out, who has had a few poor games in a row.

"What causes this infraction to rise to the level of supplemental discipline is the force to which the hit was delivered..."

Just don't hit him as hard next time, Kronner. You silly man, you.

There you have the MOST infuriating part about this. The NHL will be completely neutered in the next couple of years.

Aaron Ward tweeted 10 mins ago

"Beyond Kronwall missing for suspension, Detroit Red Wings may be dealing with another veteran defenseman missing from Game 7 line up"

I wonder if that is just speculation, or if he knows somone is going to sit.... Zidlicky?
