If they are then this scrub will get his ticket back off the ice for a few games.


3 teams in 3 years for a 6'5" guy who has spent 10 games in the NHL with the casucks, 7 games with FLA and 45 games in Boston 3 years ago says scrub to me.

I thought the league was also cutting down on allowing teams to call up goon/cheap shot artists prior to the playoffs too.
That hit was MUCH MUCH worse than the weak rub that Stoll gave Ian White in last year's playoffs, which resulted in a suspension.

Depending on whether or not Bitz gets suspended, I guess we'll find out if that was a "make-up call" by Shanahan since the refs didn't call a penalty on Stoll on that play, or if they are serious about these hits.
