Lehner is not the ordinary Swedish goalie, that's for sure.

I have always predicted Lehner to become a big game goalie, because of his heart, passion and pure winning instinct, a playoff goalie type which he proved last year.

He will probably not be the goalie leading the NHL goalie stat lists though.

The original article said he did but good to hear they were wrong.

That was the part that concerned me more for some reason - I don't mind the heat of the moment ref thing but coming back after being ejected is the type of thing you'd only expect a plug like Lessard to do.

Anyways - good news that its 3 games, hopefully he can finish the year strong

I was kidding, but his injuries are a (largely) result of merely relying on athleticism while being atrocious technically. That's why he'd make those 5 bell saves: he'd be out of position and need to flail at the puck. Sometimes it actually hit him.

Everyone is saying this but i didn't see him return on the ice after he was kicked out. Is it not on the video in the OP? If it is, at what time in the video?

If he never returned to the ice, my point stands...You always see players trying to free themselves from linesman. I would say about half the fights, as soon as a linesman puts one arm in, they stop. The other half, they're still pulling and tearing and trying to get a swing at the other player while the linesman holds them. Lehner did no differently then say...mcgrattan trying to get at downie when he hit mcammond. Look at any brawl, or even a single fight, and you will see a player trying to get away from the grip of a linesman half the time. If lehner DID NOT come back, which i originally thought, then why give lehner 3 games, but not other guys who do the same thing? I'll show you one example, the mcgrattan one...but there are 100s and 100s, if not 1000s of cases over the years where a linesman gets in the way to stop a fight, and the fighters keep trying to fight while the linesmen are trying to separate it. Here's an example...no suspension:



According to the lehner suspension, at 0:36 of this video, there should be half a dozen suspensions handed out as it seems every ref and linesman is trying to separate players but players are "pulling away" to continue fighting. and Mcgrattan at 1:08 is different then lehner how?

What a hero.

Funny to see that the Ref single handily managed to wrestle his jersey off though...

He isn't really fitting into the whole "i aint even mad" ethos.

Trade him now.

No surprise, the 3 games probably has a lot to do with the ref being an idiot in the first place.

Lehner, a young Swede trying to play Canadian style hockey, why all this complaining? ;-)

He shouldn't have messed with the referee though... I get that.

Why couldn't the ref just stay out of it, let it happen & then penalize them afterwards? Why try & stop them when they are in the heat of a battle & want to go, I don't get why they interfere with it, just let them go, it's much more entertaining for the fans.

Penalizing & suspending them afterwards is safer & makes much more sense. Take one or two combatants at a time to the penalty box after they have tired is the much safer way to go for refs & linesmen. Refs have prevented numerous good goalie fights & that has to stop.
