Brashear was an excellent fighter, though quite a few people on these boards had no love for his fighting style. If he did not get a favorable grip on his opponent at the beginning of the fight, he would tie them up, get them in close with his exceptional strength, and take the tie. "Huggy Bear" was his nickname, and it was well deserved, but he rarely lost, and was pretty effective imo. He could play a regular shift, which unfortunately is rare these days for that kind of player. Hopefully they'll find another one like him some day.

Glad to see Schenn getting bumped down to the 3rd line. If he doesnt like it then he needs to step up and play better then he has.

Capitals' Erskine: Simmonds hit wasn't 'reckless'

The James Neal defense...actually worse! Guess only speedskaters deserve suspensions for elbows


Quote:
“I don’t think it was a reckless play or a reckless elbow. I wasn’t flying down the ice a hundred miles an hour with my elbow up in the air.

“I’m going on my 11th year and I haven’t been suspended. I’ve been fined once, I think. I thought that would come into a factor more, but Shanahan did what he had to do and I gotta accept it.”

Sestito will create space I guess, but I guess they want him to be the "Knuble" on that line. Atleast Lavy is not doing the "Dan Carcillo" by putting Rinaldo on the top lines.
only with Richie. he also had to play with nodl and wellwood. i don't know what lavy was thinking.

Well he is right, once he realized he was going to get beat did he put his elbow right in Simmonds' face - still making him equally as culpable

He is lucky he didn't get more

He also wasn't going 100 miles per hour, because that is physically impossible for a human.

To me the league missed a perfect opportunity to make an example of a nonfactor player. Suspending Erskine 8-10 games would've sent the message the league needs to send while at the same time not hurting itself from a marketing perspective by suspending a player of consequence (sorry Erskine...not really).

Can anyone tell me, please, why the Flyers didn't put Simmonds on IR? Thanks!

Simmonds would be unable to play for 7 days from the day he is put on IR. If he's out over a week, you may see him put on the IR retroactively.

Oh, yeah, I forgot about the retroactively part. Thanks! It's just when you read "no timetable for return", especially with concussion, that usually means he'll be out for a while.

Yeah, they're treating him day-to-day for the moment, just in case he could play tonight (which he won't) or Thursday. After Thursday, if he's not ready to go, he'll likely go on the IR.

amazing that erskine was given only 3 games, Colin Mcdonald was given 2 games for a questionable intentful check from behind. Erskine clearly throws an elbow out and only receives 3 games.

yep I thought it was 3 games, but a week sounds right as well. until the NHL teams put a player on IR you wont see it in fantasy leagues at yahoo, espn ect.

If Shanahan was really serious about the head contact stuff, he missed a great chance to make an example out of someone and drop the hammer. Erskine isn't a star and it was blatant. Hell, he could have even let it be known that player history is irrelevant when it comes to head shots, as Erskine has never been suspended.

The league missed a big opportunity during the CBA negotiations by keeping the same system in place. They should have established a committee.

I don't know what the process for amending that stuff is, but they need to to away with the whole Lord of Suspensions thing they have going on.

That makes too much sense. The league will never go for it.

Yeah, Shanahan escapes a lot of the criticism thanks to the videos he's putting out.
