2 more games for Shelley

RT @TSNBobMcKenzie: PHI announces a two-game suspension from the NHL for Jody Shelley, for sucker bomb last night on VAN's Andrew Alberts.

It's legit... can't let guys do that. Especially in Shelley's case, because I'm pretty sure he had a previous suspension for a sucker punch.

The coach needs to take control and park his ass for the duration of the season. What the **** was he doing out there last night instead of Carcillo? Who was Shelley going to fight? Kesler? Burrows? Give me a break.

He adds nothing of value to this club. He's simply a giant steaming turd out there. Only Paul Holmgren couldn't see this happening...amazing.

I really don't have problem with suspension, more would be better... bs because of last week Lucic thing, I'm know that Shelley is no angel and that was his first game after suspenion... what was the point in dressing him against Canucks, they don't have anyone close to enforcer...

sorry but if you take away the participants this is a trash call. they call for the ending of staged fights so now you have to wait until someone agrees and drops his gloves to take a punch. this is just another step into making the game into 82 all star games. you need to be prepared at all times.

However, I'm a fan of any reason to get him out of the lineup.

Why does Shelley get time in the lineup at all, over Carcillo? It's mind-boggling.

Carcillo is by FAR the more effective hockey player and fills the same role Shelley does (fighting) although not as well, seeing as how his fighting ability is the only reason he draws an NHL paycheque.

That sucker punch was dirty. AA was completely unsuspecting and Shelley flattened with a hammer. ***** move.

Carcillo - Betts - Powe is sooo much better than Shelley - Betts - Powe.

Shelley was scratched in two games following his prior suspension, including the loss to the Panthers before the break. If the Flyers won that game or had a more competitive edge in their play, my guess is Laviolette would have kept the same lineup for the Vancouver game.

Seriously though, once I knew Cote was gone I was exuberant because thought that there would be no more useless goons taking up a spot...but then Shelley appeared.

Suspending Shelly is just making the Flyers a better team

How is that suspension worthy? The two games are based on reputation. Any player who never previously was noted for such acts would have walked away with something like a $10000 fine.

Waiting for the 3 Shelly fans to come in and say how him hitting Alberts in the face was a positive thing, and somehow protected Richards, Giroux and Briere from getting cheap shotted (aka bull **** )

Alberts was talking smack on Briere's mullet so Shelly came to the rescue.

Best "fight" shelley has had all year. I stand behind Shelley 100% on this one. A message needed to be sent, we can't have players running around taking liberties with Briere's mullet. Not at any cost.

Shelley is just insanely dumb. We're lucky his stupidity hasn't cost us a game yet

Shelley will announce retirement during the off-season and joins the Phantoms coaching staff.

Riley as the head coach and Jody as the assistant, holy ffffffffuuu!

After hearing the Canuck announcers saying that the whole Canuck bench were talking crap on Shelley all game long I sorta was just waiting for him to flip. And when he did flip he just started swinging at any Canuck he could find

I'm more disappointed in not seeing a Richards/Bieksa fight again this year! It seems that they fight every season. Carcillo needs to play like a man possessed the next couple of games to keep his spot in the line up though.
