Torres gets 25 games...
 
....and Neal gets nothing for the same (if not worse) hit. Yeah makes sense.

Neal should have gotten one more, but Torres has a pretty bad history.

JVR21 04-21-2012 12:33 PM

:biglaugh: This league's discipline is a joke.

OriginJM 04-21-2012 12:33 PM

Even if Neal is a star, he deserved AT LEAST (with star treatment) 5 games.

1 game is just a slap in the face.

And his 1 game was for the Giroux hit, not the Couturier hit.

that hit didn't deserve taht long of a suspension
if malkin did that to anyone, it would have been ' hey, nice hit ' can you do it again
the suspension length was for previous incidents (and reputation) not for this incident

league and their so-be-it clamp down on head shots has become so much of a joke, that the players are hitting players on the head even more now then ever before

some detterent the suspensions are
especially in playoffs when there are no fines assessed

This league is seriously becoming a joke and a laughingstock.

Sorry but the fact that Malkin and Crosby have never been suspended for some of the ******** cheapshotting that goes on with them should be testament enough as to how pathetic the league is run. Aiming for the head, punching guys in the nuts, sticking a guy in the nuts. And what is it with the Penguins and their love of ****** guys on the ice while grinding their heads against the ice? Happened to Hartnell at the end of the regular season and I forget who it was who sat on Van Riemsdyk in front of the Penguins net for like 35 seconds in game 5 and shoved his head into the ice. Don't care what anyone says, ANY Flyer does what Malkin, Crosby or most of the guys on the Penguins do and they get 3, 5, 10 games.

If shanny were actually consistent in handing out lengthy suspensions for cheap shots than this makes sense.

Given how Asham only got four for the cross check and sucker punch, which was a dirtier move in my book, I can't take any shanaban seriously.

flyershockey 04-21-2012 02:54 PM

At this point I can only sit back and laugh at it. I guess "star" players will never be held accountable at this point.

s3x 04-21-2012 03:11 PM

Wow... Shanahan has lost his mind with the inconsistencies.

Vikke 04-21-2012 04:25 PM

Reminds of when Downie got 20 (?) and everyone thought they'd be serious about things from now on.

That's what I was coming to post. It's ridiculous.

StandingCow 04-21-2012 04:58 PM

WOW.... I thought the neal hit was worse... Just goes to show you, it matters if you are a star or not.

It also matters, way too much, if the recipient gets injured or not.
The punishment if anything should be more severe if the recipient is injured, not less severe because he was lucky enough to stay healthy.

So true. If Hossa gets up right after the hit and finishes the game, no issue, is there even a suspension?

StandingCow 04-21-2012 06:04 PM

Saw the video... man... Torres has one hell of a history.

I think Torres' hit was worse. He also was the straw that broke the camel's back and he's not a star so it was easy to go crazy with a suspension.
