Chris Kunitz game misconduct....
 
Just curious, will he be suspended for this hit? I didn't see it. Thanks

I hope not, the head certainly was not a point of contact, 5 and a game already seemed kind of harsh...

I guess it's possible, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were rescinded

Captain Hook 03-30-2013 06:59 PM

No idea. I didn't think it was that egregious but the league is kind of ticky-tac with hits these days.

skillhockey 03-30-2013 07:01 PM

Hard to say about shanigan but he boarded guy head ahead to boards. might be game or two.

I'm not sure what you mean head ahead? He hit a guy at the goal line shoulder to shoulder. It was an unfortunate fall, but I can't fathom how that call was anything but calling based on the result.

Shrimper 03-30-2013 07:04 PM

Shouldn't be a suspension but if it is then it'll be 1 game or 2.

skillhockey 03-30-2013 07:05 PM

it might've been a bit from side but it was mainly behind, they're pretty clear on that, you gotta be right by the opponent or it's boarding.

MetalheadPenguinsFan 03-30-2013 07:06 PM

Clean hit with an unfortunate result.

Kunitz will be fine I think.

MtlPenFan 03-30-2013 07:07 PM

A kinda side to side hit at the icing line? No way.

Ogrezilla 03-30-2013 07:08 PM

I think the in game punishment was plenty. Don't expect a suspension.

thecore 03-30-2013 07:16 PM

I think if the ref would have seen the whole play it would have been a 2 minute call. He hit him shoulder to shoulder on the red line. I understand why without the benefit of replay he was given a game misconduct, but I will be shocked if there is a suspension.

They didn't call boarding, they called checking from behind. It's an automatic 5 minutes & a game. I would be equally unsurprised to see him get the misconduct rescinded or to see him get a game or two. Pretty sure they're just throwing darts at a board with suspensions these days.

Its the NHL so who knows??? Sometimes a rules a rule and sometimes its not.

Kunitz might get 2 games and by the rules he should. Then what about Nash? What about Weber taking another human beings head in his hand and crushing it into the boards???

Sorry but HNIC grilling Iggy has me irked.

What's this now?

He hit the guy on the goal line. It's a powerful man that can earn a suspension for boarding a guy on the goal line into the end boards.

Captain Hook 03-30-2013 07:43 PM

I uploaded it here. Not perfect quality but good enough for those to see the hit in question.

They mentioned something about player tampering by the Pens, I think. Didn't hear the whole segment, just a couple choice words.

If we're talking about the same interview, Ron McLean asked Iginla if he had received a call from Sid and that's what convinced him to come here. Iginla responded "there's some truth to that, I heard that Sid put in a good word."

Basically, no evidence of tampering other than Sid "putting in a good word" - which of course he did, anyone with an IQ over 20 would assume that he went to management and advocated for them bringing in Iginla. I think it was more the way Iginla answered the question that kind of left it open to interpretation. He said "there's some truth to that" but the rest of his response had nothing to do with him and Sid actually talking. He could have "heard that Sid put in a good word for him" any time from when the deal was concluded to this morning when they talked at the pre-game meeting.

tl;dr: much ado about nothing with the media trying to create controversy. No doubt Bruins fans and others will grab onto it like a rabid dog with a brand new bone and the river of tears will sweep us all out to sea.

Haters gonna hate. Some people have a really hard time accepting the fact that a lot of players actually want to play on the Penguins. F those turd burglars.

Ugene Malkin 03-30-2013 08:33 PM

Cherry on coaches corner briefly talked about it.

No one can take a man for his word he wanted to come here? Cherry was defending, Feaster, and he was right in doing so.

I still believe Chiarelli put it out there to try and sway, Iginla. Feaster said he had to talk with Iggy, and they were not allowed/not given permission to talk with him directly.

What did they have to lose. I think it's pretty telling when the final say had to come from the bus driver, Iginla. I'm 100% sure they knew what Iginla's answer was going to be and took leading the pack as they were the winner and try to force the trade their way.

Suck it up and move on.

HuskerTornado 03-30-2013 08:38 PM

Game Misconduct will be rescinded. No suspension.

Anything else is a joke.

Neil Smith was on NHL Network earlier agreeing that it was a clean hit.

Not going to comment much on the alleged "player tampering" other than that is just plain stupid. Someone doesn't get their way so they are going to go to all ends to ***** and moan about it. Kind of like how people want to sue everyone when something goes wrong on the slightest of things.

Yeah, I should have mentioned it was the roundtable/hotstove (whatever it's called) thing with Glen Healy, etc.

The Underboss 03-30-2013 09:13 PM

I thought the GM was a little much. No way should he be suspended.
