speaking of fights, is Ben Eager going to play again in the preseason? I am in an enforcer pool and I am hoping he gets more preseason action. The forecaster says he will play 70 plus games this season, dunno....thanks, enjoy our ex Captain Smith!!! He's a gamer.
It looks like Eager is taking the becoming a player route.
I thought you were allowed to play if it was still under review, no?
According to Wikipedia for Match Penalty.
The player is ejected from the game and is ordered to the dressing room immediately, and automatically suspended from the league until a hearing is conducted. There are two types of match penalties: a ten minute penalty for deliberate injury to an opponent and a five minute penalty for intent to injure. In each case, 10 minutes is assessed in the player's penalty records. Another player on the offending team serves the penalty for its duration and does not return to the ice until the entire penalty time expires.
I haven't seen any of the pre-season. But I've read a lot about Downie all through this site. Seems we finally have a ***** disturber
As long as Stevens is smart enough to keep him in check and use him wisely... I am so looking forward to this.
He may not intimidate but I guarantee you other players will know when he steps on the ice and play a little different to not get blindsided (except for those that want to beat the crap out of him). It's good stuff... as long as no one dies.
