Ah gotcha, I guess I wasn't paying good enough attention while that was on. Thanks for the clarification.
I hate the idea of this 18 month "Oh you've been a good boy, we'll clean your slate." nonsense.
In my opinion, to say that it shouldn't factor is bologna.
I'm still glad this wasn't the case and I really dislike Marchand, he is only tough because he can hide between McQuaid, Lucic, Chara and Shawn Thornton, but if he would have been stretchered off one is looking at a severe (maybe even crosbylike concussion) and that's something I don't want to see/read about a player, no matter if I like him or not.
Yeah, I edited that post to ensure that no one thought I was hoping or wanting Marchand to be stretchered off.
Neal's knee was just as reckless and disgusting as Thorton's actions.
Also, love Neal's dodging of the question on hitting Marchand.
