Bad call but the ref who called it was behind the play and probably only saw the head jerk back thinking an something made contact with his head. Beautiful textbook hit. Arm and elbow down and skates on the ice.
Cherry has always disliked the Wings because he hates Euros. If you have some sort of evidence that not having a tough guy prevents you from winning it all, present it. Otherwise stfu Don Cherry. I mean come on....the guy claims Datsyuk is a dirty player.
Should be a suspension. A good one too, I don't care if that s***'s "accidental". You don't punch a linesman/ref.
Well, maybe O'Halloran. But that's it.
Agree...these guys need to know when to stop throwing punches. This includes when a player is down,when a player is being held by a linesman, when a player is obviously hurt and when a player is not looking.
No excuse...once the linesman get in there...it is over.
I found this interesting, but hard to swallow from someone who hurt the integrity of the game constantly with dives and whining about officiating. Sounds like more complaining to me, but what do you think?
I am kind of curious what he things the suspensions should have been. I am also curious to know what he thinks about the length of Matt Cookes suspension. He is asking for the league to send a message. Should't they FINALLY send a message to a guy who has injured multiple players with his cheap, dirty play ?

I think what Martin tried to do was absolutely pathetic.
I couldnt agree more. I just watched the game and that was the exact thing that doesnt belong in hockey. I hate the Penguins as much as the next guy but if he lands that punch he could end Talbots career. Blind sided sucker punches should result in a 25 game suspension minimum.
Oh and yes I think Mccarty should have been suspended for what he did t Lemieux.

Surely they aren't heavyweights, but they have some fighting experience.
I really hope you don't legitimately expect Crosby to challenge Boogard or Macintyre haha.
And yeah he lost the Ballard fight i wouldn't say he got his "ass kicked", he lost pretty decisively, but he didn't get ko'd or anything, but at least he dropped the gloves with him and took some shots. You bash him because he ragdolls, you bash him because he wears a visor, you bash him because he doesn't challenge fighters, you bash him because he loses a fight, you bash him because he fights, you bash him because he doesn't fight. Ahh jealousy...
I didn't bash him for anything above. I said he doesn't fight fighters, which he doesn't. I bash him because he attacked the Panther player in a crying baby fit. I bash him because he whines. I bash him because he goes after people when he is frustrated. He is a hell of a player but I would respect him more if he just played and didn't try fighting guys because he is losing and frustrated.
A great example is when he went after Zetterberg with about 10 cross checks to his back all because the baby was shut down. What did you think about him going after Z like that ?
I hate the Ducks too bu you are wrong about the Avalanche. The turtle went after Kozlov several times during those rivalry games. I am sick of ANY team who goes after our players when they are very obviously frustrated because they are being outplayed. The NHL in my opinion needs to crack down on this BS.
If the NHL wants to focus on things in the game they should start focusing on these baby teams who start playing dirty when they are getting dominated. I am so sick of people going after our guys because they are getting out played. The ONLY play in that game that warranted (maybe) was Z's hit/interference. Everything else was just simply crying.
The refs were also horrible at trying to control what was going on too. The hit from behind on Kronwall from Ryan (no call), The Mustache going after Cleary on a clean hit (no call) and Brookass going after Staurt for ???? Nothing ??
