He's almost certainly concussed, and will probably play concussed. Like after Chara elbowed him into the head twice last year.

The team didn't follow concussion protocol on Grabovski at all in this case

Concussions just anger Grabo. Grabovski doesn't recover from concussions, concussions recover from Grabovski.

His elbow is worthy of a suspension , and I think Ference will and should be suspended for game #2 at least ..

Bruins will insert Dougie Hamilton in his place and not miss a beat other than experience.

And that's where the Leafs need to key in on him. Get on him early. Troll him into getting penalties and pushing after the whistle.

Mark my words he gets nothing. The league has a history of looking the other way when it comes to the Bruins.

I'm certain that Ference will get nothing. I just want to know how the league will do it.

If that was Lupul on any Bruin player, he would probably be out of that game and get suspended for the next 1-2 games.

I don't think you can penalize a player for hitting their own teammate hombre

not suprise to see that about 85% on the Bruins Board think it's not worth a suspenssion. they are defending him with.. "he braced himself for a hit that never came" typical Bruins B.S.

I hope you guys bounce back on saturday and give them a lickin'

Nope. He would have tried for a ten.

85% - that's a lofty figure. Certainly you could provide a few quotes with relative ease, so get on that sparky.

I take it all you guys claiming the "league looks the other way with the Bruins" stuff - which, as an aside, is the most intellectually void viewpoint in the history of mankind - will step up to the plate and admit your emotions got the better of you when he sits down for a game?

I don't think it will be a suspension simply because of how innocuous it was, but according to the rulebook it should be at least a game. Tie that in with Ference's status as a repeat offender and it should be two.

But, again, there probably won't be a suspension. MAYBE a fine but even that I doubt.

Heavy hitting is the answer to staying in the game with the Bruin. It's a bare minimum...

I agree fully, but we need JVR to continue playing tough, Kulemin to use his strength and size way more, Lupul to play physically, etc, etc. It can't be just Komorov, Orr and McLaren. We need the whole team to play like that, some good old fashion Gary Roberts Hockey!

Especially our D. Need some Neon Dion.

People are just ranting because nothing ever goes our way. Even if he does get suspended, Hamilton will probably draw in and score the overtime winner or something
