This is the exact reason it makes me crazy when people accurately say the lack of injury will cushion the punishment or even eliminate the possibility all together. I say accurately because the league states in their little suspension videos that injury does play a role. That's BS.

Concussions aren't predictable and take time to present in some cases. If a hit is illegal .... it's an illegal, suspendable hit. The scope of punishment should be tied to the actual event and the history of the player.

Otherwise, if injury is going to play a role then any player who commits an illegal hit shouldn't be allowed to return until the player they injure is healthy. That's just as dumb a statement and situation as deciding a head hit that a player somehow escapes without an injury is an OK, legal hit.

I have a feeling that was more Benn's doing than Gully's. When your best player is saying he's good for something as simple as a SO, you almost have to let him take it.

That said, I don't know why he was even back in the game. Should've left after the Vermette hit.

He did. He didn't take another shift until the SO. Did you mean the Doan hit or the Morris hit?

I meant left completely. Shouldn't have even stayed in the tunnel.

If we use their logic about injury playing a part then there is no way on earth Todd Bertuzzi should have ever been allowed to put skates on again.

Yeah it's dumb. Even Shanaban's Doan video mentioned there was no apparent injury to Benn. How and why does that matter when you are justifying a suspension for an illegal hit?

Fistric out at least a week.

Quote:
Stars defenseman Mark Fistric is expected to miss at least one week with an abdominal strain. He was injured in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over Phoenix.

"It will be a week for so for sure, and then after that it will be day-to-day," Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said of Fistric's status.

That's a pretty big loss. If Souray goes down again we're really in trouble.

Day-to-day for Nystrom. Hopefully not as bad as Benn's was.

Quote:
Stars coach Glen Gulutzan had little to say about the injury in his postgame talk with the media.

"He got a cut on his leg, so he'll be a day-to-day guy," Gulutzan said.

Eric Nystrom had a pretty deep cut on his leg, but had it sewn up. He was limping noticeably. Said it just missed a tendon.
I don't see him returning before the end of the season, I think he's done until the (hopeful) playoffs. Benn had a similar cut and took 2-3 weeks.

Makes room for Reily anyways.

I bet they'll try and rush him back, especially if they lose to Edmonton. That or they force Dvorak to go on Wednesday.

Ok, the sooner the better, he's too physical to have out of the line up for much longer.

I see no reason to rush Nystrom back, and if Fistric is ready to come back, might as well dress 7 D if you're going to ride the top 6 guys through the stretch.

Radek Dvorak (ankle) and Eric Nystrom (leg) are listed as day to day, so the guess is Smith will play. But nothing has been determined yet.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said that Mark Fistric (abdominal strain) will probably not be avaiable on this road trip.
So much for Fistric returning then.

@MikeHeika Dvorak (ankle) not ready. Neither is Nystrom (leg). Fistric (abdominal strain) looks better, but probably not ready Friday.

The loss of these guys would hurt less if the 4th liners got more ice time.

Wandell didn't skate today because he was sick per Heika. He didn't say if that was the reason he didn't play yesterday though.

I'm hoping that's why he hasn't been playing. Any other reason doesn't make sense to me.

Dvorak remains questionable for the Nashville game.
