Sorry, I just know there isn't any other way to handle a situation like that. I assume that if Trotz suspended them, then he felt it justified. I trust his judgement and consider him a model coach. How do you think he's gotten those talent deprived teams to perform?

The team rules don't get in the way of winning, players that violate the team rules get in the way of winning!

Unfortunately yes. Blame those 2 leading scorers for putting their team second.

Irrelevant imo, too many variables in there anyway for me to argue against it.

You'd be mad at those players not your coaches. Trust me.
