I wonder how many games Madden (or Gill) can complete without getting a misconduct.
Yep. Ilves has already got three game misconducts from relatively clean hits this season. None of those should have been more than a minor penalty. Maybe not even that.
I think Madden will be alright. He's not that big, he's not a dirty player and he's fast. He will get some outrageous penalties from clean hits, but I think he can handle it. On the other hand, referees are so dumb that they can start picking on him just because he plays in HIFK and has this "Mad Dog" image.
I feel sorry for Gill. He's already played a couple of games and I don't know how they went, but I'm guessing he has the same problem that for example Sami Helenius. He's big and strong guy and when he hits (or even touches) somebody, he's gonna be automatically penalized. I predict he's gonna get really frustrated at some point.
