Heard whispers on the Team 1040 that there will be a suspension.

Also apparently Gillis made a comment that he will be waiting for a call from the NHL tomorrow.

2 games for the sucker punch and 10 for the fan altercation---touching fans is a no no

Refs shoulda let them fight... I am not condoning what Rypien did to the fan or even the sucker punch, but had the refs let him and Staubitz fight, none of this would have happened.

League suspension is a given, not much to discuss.

More interesting is whether or not Rypien has played his last game as a Canuck.

Almost no doubt that there will be one. I can't see this one slipping by. He's not a star player, so they will probably throw the book at him. Can't think that Gillis is too pleased about his behaviour either.

There's absolutely no doubt he'll be suspended. It's only a matter of how long it's for. IMO, this is directly dependant on the play it gets in the media.

I say if the story goes away quickly, he gets 5. If it ends up nationally on TSN and even ESPN, it will be 8-10. If they discuss it on the View, he's gone all season.

When team toughness amounts to Rick Rypien you can't blame the guy for getting wound up.

Now what?

Ya from that shot the guy didn't seem to do much, I would imagine that it will be 5-10 games or so. What the hell was he thinking? Did the guy say something to him?

If Gillis preaches character he should wash his hands of Rypien after this.

He just had to be dragged to the bench by the linesman, fighting the whole way, and then off the ice by the linesman, AV, and teammates. You think he was actually thinking?

I'm not sure about Rypien's suspension history so I'm unsure whether he is a repeat offender or not. I'm thinking that based upon the entirety of the incidents (sucker punch, having to be forced off the ice & resisting the linesman and then going after the fan) that he is going to get a least 5 games and more likely in the neighbourhood of 10 games.

This seems very likely actually. Burrows always seems to bring things together.

I demand that the minute Rick Rypien returns from his 17 game suspension he is placed on waivers.

First of all, the thread title is suspension with a ? at the end. How can you even question it? he Assaulted a fan. A paying customer to a sporting event should NEVER be touched, grabbed, or hit by a player. It is so wrong on every level.

It doesn't matter what the fan said, there is no excuse for it. People on here are acting like it's just a little shake and that's no too bad. It is bad, it's very bad. If I were that fan I would have already sent a pm to Wetcoaster asking about the legal action I could take against the player and the league.


He's a garbage hockey player who does nothing but engage in fights. he has had off ice issues in the past and has now attacked a paying customer. He should be off the team and out of the league.

As somebody already said, touching fans is a big no no in pro sport. The last thing patrons should be subjected to is physical abuse from the players! I'd bet on a 10+ game suspension coming down.

the cheapshot on staubitz. fine, i would be satisfied if he wasnt suspended at all for that. but getting after the fan is a disgrace. star player or not, dont even use that tired line, he needs to get the book thrown at him. that was an embarassment to the league. and anyone who defends is just as retarded as he is

stay classy vancouver

I would say right around 10 games. Maybe give or take 2 games.

Pierre Lebrun expects the league to come down HARD on Rypien. As LetangInTheSO, fan altercation is a BIG time no-no.

Quote:
One thing NHL commissioner Gary Bettman does not tolerate is altercations between NHL players or personnel and fans.

In April 2009, he suspended New York Rangers coach John Tortorella for a game -- in the playoffs -- for throwing a water bottle at a Capitals fan in Washington. Personally, I didn't think the water bottle heave looked too dangerous, but the playoff suspension spoke to Bettman's lack of tolerance for anything involving the paying public. One playoff game, as we always say, is worth at least five in the regular season.

So if you're Rypien, you better have saved up a few bucks from your $575,000 salary, because you're about to lose a significant chunk of it.

There is no way this isn't at least 15 games.

Rypien is a great fighter to watch but he's not exact vital. The league will throw the book at him and the Canucks probably wont care. They'll probably go on a winning streak because they have to call up a player who can score some goals.
