Agreed. I have been very critical but i was actually hoping that Yeo would move him up to the second line to play with Seto and whoevers name gets drawn out of a hat to play 2C.

I am not happy at all with what happened to him last night, it flat out sucks. One thing about him that i will absolutely give him credit for is he does not miss games, when he grabbed that arm and skated faster then he has all year to get off the ice my stomach ached cuz i knew it had to bad.

FWIW that IS an increased amount, drastically increased. For larger portions of the salary, that's what suspensions are, in effect. You are right that these fines don't do that much to deter behavior, but that's kind of the point. Fines are meant to be a lesser penalty. They do establish a history however.

In any event, bummed about the injury to Heatley, enjoyed the scrappiness of the game but you don't want to see a freak injury happen. I like Heatley, and liked him as a Shark.

Am I alone in the fact that I hate it when injuries are only referred to as "upper body" or "lower body"?? I would like to know what in the **** in ailing both Heatley and Cullen. Does Heatley have a broken or sprained wrist/forearm? Did Cullen pull his hammy or groin?

Vlasic takes a retaliatory baseball swing after the end of the game: Small fine
PMB has his stick lifted into opponent's face on the faceoff: Suspend that man!!!

To be fair, Heatley did take the first swing. He just happened to miss.

Before that he was cross-checked in lower back behind the play (E: I now realize that it's probably beside the point). But wasn't Heatley injured by the take down, not the slash?

If the team buys out Heatley's contract, are they in the clear to negotiate a new contract with him?

Whether Heatley was injured on slash or the fall something needs to be done. I was dissapointed to see Suter and the boys get only minimally involved after the incident. It should of been a full out donny brooke.

I'm hoping Yeo tells Konopka or Rupp to take a run at Vlasic next go round to even the score and send a message that being bullied will not be tolerated. Afterall it was Konopka who said something along the lines of "Parise and Koivu will be able to have a cup of coffee at center ice when I'm around and not have to worry". Time for him to earn his paycheck.

Can't re-sign players you buy out

If you watch the video again, Vlasic followed up the cross check with a slash before Heater swung back.

If they had gotten involved in a full out donny brooke then the Wild would be even more short handed because there would have been automatic suspensions handed out.

Wonder why the depth of hate between Vlasic and Heatley.

After watching at it again, I suddenly doubt my eyesight. I'm surprised I didn't notice that at all.

That was a nasty cross check as well. Wasn't a love tap by any means. That should have gotten called instantly.

"The Wild says there is no exact timetable yet, but coach Mike Yeo said Thursday the Wild’s third-leading goal scorer will miss at least the next couple games and General Manager Chuck Fletcher said at least the next couple weeks. At the very least, he is expected to return to the Twin Cities on Friday.

So you want your players to intentionally injure a player because he accidentally injured Heatley, and apologized for it afterwards?

I read that post you responded to a couple of times, but I never saw the words "intentionally" or "injure" in it.

Vlasic's actions looked pretty intentional to me. Are you only saying it was an accident because of his apology?

What does a 3 year old say after breaking a lamp when they were caught red handed? They don't deny it, they only say, I'm sorry.

Right there with you. You must serve justice otherwise you will be kicked around the league.

Unlike many around here I actually don't mind Heater. Sure he has his faults, but he offers some decent secondary scoring, and seems like a real team player. I don't think losing Heatley is going to effect the Wild all that much however. He will be back by the playoffs I'm guessing. Cullen on the other hand is much more of a hit to our team. Seto looks like a little lost monkey out there right now. PMB, no idea what's been his buzz lately. He seems like he's hung up his career already. That whole line I predict will be a mess from here on out. And when Cullen returns, it's not going to be an instant love fest for that line again. Hope Pommer, Koivu, and Parise can step it up, and carry the load.

Also have to watch out for Raffi Torres. If we start taking runs at players they might unleash the beast.

I cant speak for others, but I can tell you what I would like to see.

I want to see Stoner destroy Couture with a crosscheck in front of the net, and if Couture takes exception, I want to see Stoner kick the living hell out of him. I dont really care if Stoner apologizes when he is done.


Having said all of that. I am not all that upset with what Vlasic did. I would just like to see the Wild be willing to take their game to that level some times.
