Given his history, I'd bet he gets at least a game. Welcome back, Grags.

What time is the Giroux hearing for the slash on the back of Roy's knee three seconds after the puck was dropped?

Kaleta is gonna get suspended for that, but Sturm doesn't even get a call from the league for his hit on Leopold.

I came to make these two points. The supplemental discipline in this leauge is still outrageously flawed.

He'll get a chuckle and a reference to playing 'hard and on the edge' from the Versus crew next time they cover the Flyers.

He's been fined for this before. I think he gets 2 games.

Or Chara skating in to punch Jay Harrison in the face WELL after the play when they were not even engaged?

Oh right. Star player.

I had higher hopes for Shanny.

Apparently, malice and intent to injure with the stick are not yet "points of emphasis" for Shanny and crew.

Didn't notice it before.

It was dangerous, and I figure he'll get 2 games.

And it won't be undeserved, either.

Yeah, I could see the weekend being taken away from him. When I said 11 F and 7 D, I didn't mean this. Oh well, more ice time for Vanek, Pommer, Adam, and Roy.

Doubt it happens for a few reasons. Outside of maybe two games, Tropp has been the best RWer down there. Second, with the team mired in a losing streak, if they were to call anyone up I'd bet it would be more of a veteran like Stuart or Whitmore. Third, the forward corps in Rochester is already perilously thin, and I think Regier knows the fans would be near a mutiny if they took away another forward--more now than ever before, I think the organization is really trying to make it work with Rochester. Finally, they can just play Grags as the 12th forward/7th defenseman, and put him back on one of the points of the PP, which I think is the most likely scenario.

What about the Weber hit on van Riemsdyk? He hit him from behind into the boards though it didn't look like he intended to hurt van Riemsdyk, it looked like he felt bad for doing it after the fact because he kind of stopped and just skated around timidly. Though van Riemsdyk hooked him right back after the whistle.

Yea, that was pretty stupid. He hadn't done anything like that for a while.

The ref who was watching the play didn't seem to object to it.

I'm sure you're right. He's got all of what, 10 pro games under his belt and was pretty invisible in the pre-season. I would just love to see if he could have an Adam effect on the team right now, even if for just a few games. I do agree though, this probably isn't the time to call him up.

You make valid points. Kaleta shouldn't get much more than a game anyways so it would be a waste of cap space, albeit a small amount, to call up Kass for a game or two when Grags can easily take the 8-9 minutes of ice he'd get.

In looking at that play, I thought that Webers stick hit JVR in the skate and that caused JVR to go hard into the boards. Not sure if it was intentional. JVR gave him a mini nudge after the play.

I agree two games on Patty K.

I did not see the Giroux slash on Roy.

I thought Kaleta ran him well after a pass late in the third and it should have been a penalty.

Interesting that Coburn's canopener/slewfoot of Vanek from behind into the glass gets little play. *shrug*

Watch the Adam goal -- http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...=sb:highlights

lol, on that play I completely missed the goal because I was focused on Vanek getting taken down into the boards

See, I didn't really thinkg there was anything wrong with it. It wasn't really even a hit, he was leaning in and rubbing him out against the boards. When JVR's skate caught the boards and he went down it looked worse.
