The league can't say it's cracking down on headshots if it doesn't penalize stuff like that.
I don't know how people can call that hit late, let alone really late. Briere already had him lined up, and the puck went in less then a second earlier. I would argue that the Richards hit was later than that.

I agree with the last part if you mean by "penalize" to suspend him, but he also wasn't penalized on the ice, which shows greater inconsistency.

Didn't danny spear ovy in the groin a few years back?

I like that both he and giroux are playing fiesty, it means danny is actually 100%. And giroux is now 2-0 in the fight department, from his comments afterwards it sounded like richards, trying to spark the guys. Giroux is complete player, PP, PK, draws. Just needs to shoot more and dangle less. In his prime, he'll be ridiculous.

Ovechkin and Briere have their history. Everyone talks about the spearing, but there's more to it. They conveniently leave out all the facts to make it seem like Briere was a lose cannon who did it for no reason.

All feelings for Briere aside, I thoroughly dislike Ovechkin.

Ditto that. Offensive power put aside, he's one dirty son of a ***** that the league won't touch. Him and Malkin can ****ing slewfoot each other until they both can't play anymore for all I care.

Oh and **** his goal celebrations too. After a while it's not getting excited for the game. It's called being an overreacting *******. He of all people should act like he's scored before.

If Crosby, Malkin or Ovechkin do what Briere does and there wouldnt even be a fine.
The hockey media would either ignore it, or quickly sweep it under the rug like the way they have handled some of the things that Crosby did last year, Ovechkin and what Malkin did in the playoffs.

And you would be wrong.

Agreed. He should have been given a penalty at the time for sure, as well as the suspension.

Not sure how they missed that, but given how horrible the reffing has been, it's not surprising.

It benefited the Flyers that he didn't get called at the time, because it might have been a major to kill.

I don't mind the suspension as long as every other guy who cheapshots someone after a play or blindside to the head gets the same treatment. I'm not holding my breath.
