****.

Another victim of the Wild concussion parade.

I'm hoping Tanguay gets suspended for this. He better be.

He won't. There's no hearing for him. That said, this is one of the few times I would agree with not having even a hearing. It was an elbow, and it was a 2 minute penalty, but if it were any defenseman other than Sprugeon in that situation, it wouldn't have even been a penalty. Tanguay stuck his arm out to hold up the puck mover, apparently not realizing said puck mover was about 6" shorter than him. Swap Stoner or Gilbert into Spurgeon's spot and it's just a typical bump behind the net.

Yeah I didn't see much malice in that elbow.
Some say that he looked back to make sure he hit Spurgeon, but to me it looked like he looked back and thought "Oh **** I just hit that little dude in the face"

Agreed. If that's a supsension, then I don't know what a 2 minute elbowing penalty is anymore.

Exactly, he was clearly shocked that it was someone's head there, and not the chest. Unfortunate incident. Fine at the most.

I said that, and I still think so. It was clearly intentional. Remember Bouchard? He hasn't hurt a fly yet he got suspended for that stick incident.

Two wrongs don't make a right. Shanny should have lost his job over the Bouchard suspension, but suspending Tanguay for this wouldn't fix anything.

I would agree with this totally if Butch didnt get suspended for trying to slash a guy on the hands

I have to wonder if this has anything to do with the McLeod hit from earlier in the year. I was kind of amazed he didn't get a concussion on that play (or, more accurately, there was no reported concussion). This was just such an accident and, frankly, didn't even look particularly forceful, that I have to wonder if it's the only cause.

And, yeah, no suspension here. Obvious accident.

Sucks, but that's the risk of a 5'8 defender. Didn't look particularly dirty to me.

Well they are supposed to factor in if the guy gets hurt. If you elbow a guy in the head, give him a concussion, idk how that isn't suspendable with the new safety precautions set in place.

How many times have we heard "it wasn't intentional, but it's up to the player making the hit to be responsible".

It's one of the factors, not the entirety of them. That alone doesn't warrant a suspension, IMO.

About as often as we hear "the defender turned when he should have just taken the hit".

I'm not bitter or anything tho.

Might as well do that every time going into the boards. Turn your head away and raise your elbow.

The "if i didn't see it, it's ok" rule in full effect!

About three times I tried to write something saying Tanguay should be suspended but I just can't. I also don't believe it was intentional and that look back was a surprised one.

OTOH, it was a hit to the head that caused a concussion. You're supposed to be aware of where your stick is at all times, how can that not apply to your elbow which should be much easier to keep track of? If all it takes to get out of a suspension is a shocked look the players gonna start doing drama classes in their off-season workouts

Cripes, is there any way we can just forfeit the rest of the season so we can begin the offseason healing process early?

Is there any benefit in hoping this is a quick concussion? Put him on the IR and call up a warm body (Is Cuma available?), season is over, no need hurting Spurgeon's future.

I don't know if they can call up Cuma since Foster's still "healthy". and they used up all their non-emergency callups.
