Considering the whole Gilbert Arenas thing going on, this move makes the NHL look like a bunch of *******.

Get over it fellas. The players can still show emotion. Other players have gotten fined for doing the same gesture (who was the Rangers player who did it towards Carcillo, and Tortorella was absolutely fuming and holding the Ranger player back?).

Don't make the gesture. It has a history of being punished. Not rocket science. I don't see this as the league coming after us. In this case, the league is actually following a precedent. Whether or not that precedent is always followed, on the other hand...

Regards,
Rick

Look, I'm no fan of uber-political correctness and censorship...but if the league wants to maintain a modicum of class, that's their prerogative and, frankly, I'm fine with it in this case.

I am ok with the fine, the league has always been consistant with this so its fine.
Carcillo needs to be better then this. stop acting like a jackass and just play hockey.
Cant wait for the Don Cherry rant on this
Then im OK with the fine, its consistant. i think the league should spend more time and energy on the game and not miss obvious goal calls instead of gestures. lol.

The league has changed rules during the playoffs by putting out mandates, shouldn't shock anyone.

But on topic, who cares, he got fined, he can pay it, we all move on.
Well that's just silly then. He got the penalty and paid the price. Maybe that's why the Leafs are so bad.

Areanas was suspended indefinitely.

It makes the NHL what they are - a league who holds their players to the highest of standards on and off the ice.

When was the last time someone in the NHL got arrested or suspended for smoking pot?

It's not about being scum, more about how high of standards there are in professional sports. Or hockey players are that much more smarter and never get caught

BTW, if you blink you almost miss the gesture. I guess he could have gotten away with it if he didn't happen to be being shown on TV. I was expecting something more dramatic.

When was the last time anyone was busted for smoking pot when they didn't do something else to draw a cop's attention?

Also, you seriously think smoking is a character flaw?

If anything, it's much healthier than drinking or smoking cigarettes for a professional athlete. So, in many ways, it's the responsible way to relax.

It's not so much a character flaw as it is breaking the rules, and law regardless. But Ricky Williams was suspended for testing positive for it.

Smoking is inherently unhealthy, for everyone, and irresponsible for someone who requires peak physical performance as part of their job description.

He cared more about smocking pot than playing football. I dont think the NHL holds higher standards than the NBA or NFL or MLB or whatever. I think it just boils down to the Players of this sport. They seem more down to earth, and care about the game (not the money) more than most other sports. I think that has a lot more to do with it than the NHL standards compared to other Pro sports.

So is drinking, driving fast, hookers, eating Red meat (with A1), and not getting 8 hours of sleep.

Or, there's a discernible difference between NHL and NBA/NFL players (Other than the sport they play) which affects the level of scrutiny they receive from the police and probably the media.

Whenever someone gets in trouble because they were driving drunk and such, we hear about it just as well. Mark Bell was also suspended for his DUI. Hockey players have a squeaky clean reputation, and they're held to it as well.

People are seriously freaking about pot now?

Next thing, giving someone the finger is going to count as a death threat.

It's not freaking out about pot, it's pointing out how it's against the rules in professional sports to do it.

I believe it is a more of a case of them not getting caught. I don't believe for a minute than no one ever smokes pot in the NHL. I've heard stories of NHL players and drugs that never get caught. I've always wondered how good the testing is in the NHL and whether or not the league would want things like that getting out.
