Kostopoulos is too chicken to show up for an in person hearing, because he knows he was dead wrong and has no defense, here. I hope he's gets 20 games.
While I agree with Titanium that it's TV and all about ratings, etc., TV is a great place to display one's biases and ignorance. Milbury is a total moron. If ANY other player on ANY other team was injured like Stu was by a puke like Kostopoulos, there would be severe consequences. The other guys bring up the mild concussion to "the best player on the planet" as if that's comparable to what happened to Stu. Whatever.
As the other participants pointed out, there is no contrasting viewpoint. The rules are very clear, and video doesn't lie.
But, oh, well. Since it's just a Red Wing who was hit blindside with an elbow, head-shot resulting in a broken jaw, Kostopoulos is the best tough guy since Vladdy?
Did you see Stu's reaction when he was headed down to the locker room. He was so pissed. I would be, too. Get better soon, Stu.
When I go to http://cbssports.com/nhl to watch the GameCenter for this game, why is Crosby and that molester 'stache of his on the front page? He's not playing. He's injured. He's a non-factor in any Pens game until he comes back. They couldn't have found someone's mug to stick up there?
Pens lost 0-4 to the Wild without Pube-stachio. Perhaps they've forgotten how to play, since they spend all their time on the ice feeding him the puck.
If you are a team like the Canucks, or any other division leader, just injure the Wings' players, they won't anything do but wave their finger at you!
Well, it would their middle finger, so they're trying! Seriously, though, Gutlesspuke's (thank you, Harold) hit on Stuart is indefensible by Calgary or the league, if they were stand-up and not the biased morons that they are, in fact. Puke should have to sit out as long as Stuart is unable to play. Wish I ran the league, but I don't.
I can't picture one of our guys doing something like this, but can you imagine the repercussions and punishments and front-page headlines it would make, if they ever did something this dirty?
I prefer my revenge served cold -- like, Calgary missing the playoffs. Yes, that will do.
