Yeah no ****, lol.

Seriously I love how there are those politically correct fans in every fan base, well at least online anyhow. This is a guy who's made a living on injuring our team constantly and you're now able to sleep better because he's not too seriously injured?

I could care less if he's not injured or done for the year, as a rival team that's constantly taken liberties on our team and gotten no supplemental discipline for it I'm happy to see it go the other way for once. Seriously some fans are as soft as the friggen Oilers.
I admit that my memory is sketchy, but which of our players was injured by Clutter back and how many games were lost as a result, in order to warrant a statement that Clutterback "made a living injuring our players"?

Because some wild fans say that he is not a dirty player?

2 games? That seems high given other rulings this season.

Hall suspended for two games, Bieksa doesn't even get a phone call.

Its very weird how the NHL suspends base on injury. If Bieksa pulled that on a guy with a wonky knee instead of Eriksson that is more deserving of a suspension?

Oh well, knew he'd get suspended.

Sucks for Hall though, he's a young guy and now he's got history. They will come down hard on Hall from now on.

Yep it is.

Called it

Analysis:

The high angle showed that his knee was extended. Even though I don't think it was intentional. You are not supposed to have your knee out like that when engaging in a hit.

Prediction:

2 games.

Clutterbuck is a dirty, cowardly hitter, and for him to call Hall's hit reckless is quite funny IMO.







No charging here at all....


- swing and a miss.

No shoulder to the head here...honest!

Shanny was apeasing the media with this one........

If Clutter**** did that to someone like Teddy Pecks there is no way he gets two games.

Hell Hartnell did it to MPS and I dont even think they looked at it for more than 2 seconds before making that ruling.

2 games. Meh. Pretty weak to give him more than 1 but better than the 5 I feared.

Now we will see either hemsky or yakupov on the top line and probably eager or paajarvi on the second line.

1 game to much IMO, I didn't like the hit but Hansen only got 1 game for his head shot on Hossa....

As much as that seems high, I can't be overly upset by it.

2 games for giving a **** and having a backbone. I'm ok with it. Now the others need to get a clue asap.

You need to think of this like 4 games in a season that is half as long as this. And that's way too much. Absolutely gutless garbage call by Shanahan.

I thought it would probably be two games. Oh well, impossible to feel sorry for a guy like clutterbuck.

Probably a fair call call.

Personally, I think the hit itself isn't as much the issue as the fact that Clutterbuck never had control of the puck. Felt it should be 1 game, but would have been mad if it had been 3 or more. I can live with 2. Hopefully it galvanizes the team a little bit and someone steps up so that we have more than one player giving a damn out there when he returns.

I still think it's a BS suspension. One game is probably too much for that hit given what's been deemed "clean"
