I know everyone here wants a suspension, and wants to believe the conspiracy, but ya know...im trying to put myself in Michaleks shoes/skates...being on the bottom of a scrum, bodies all over you, people screaming at the top of their lungs, the goal siren going on, people crosschecking you and what not...i can kinda understand that whole "GET THE HELL OFF OF ME" feeling. So, as much as nobody wants to hear this, I actually think the league made the right call.
I agree with a lot of the stuff you post on here but I'm not buying this one. He panicked? It's the NHL playoffs. You're in the crease with a loose puck. Expect people to be near you, hitting you and possibly on top of you.
