Does that mean he might miss game 2? Since it is in person?
I'm saying this means he's out. Maybe for a while.

Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC 2m In-person hearing for Stoll means NHL has option to suspend for longer than five games. Doesn't mean league will do it, just creates option.

I think Torres is the one requesting it but I could be wrong.

I never want to see a player injured and I hope Stoll is alright, but I wouldn't be unhappy if he missed the rest of the series. He did look like he wanted a piece of Torres and then stopped right away.

This is just getting ridiculous. Fine him if you want (which still would be getting this wrong), but you can't suspend a guy because another player leaves himself vulnerable to a clean hit.

Incompetent fools running this league. The officials and the management all need to be thrown out.

If Torres gets suspended for that hit, then I want him off the team. Dude can't even make clean hits without being suspended, so you can't trust him.

... so you can't trust the league to make an unbiased decision on a clean hit.

Come on Shanny.

That's not even a major penalty. Let alone a suspension.

OH WAIT, IT'S TORRES?!?!?! DEPORT HIM!!!!

This is ridiculous. It's clearly based on his reputation. I hope he gets nothing, but you never know...

#NHL news. An in-person hearing has been requested by the league for #Sharks Raffi Torres. Meaning another lengthy suspension is possibility


May also be an issue of logistics. Would guess that Blake is in LA.

Fraser's explanation/analysis of Torres hit. Feels that head was point of contact.

Welp, now I'd say our chances at making this a series are grim. Replacing Havlat and Torres will be extremely hard.

I don't follow all suspensions, but I don't recall a single Shark getting an in person interview and not getting suspended. And since it's Torres it's likely going to be a long one.

After re-watching the play multiple times on the reverse angle, it looks to me like Torres lines up intending for a clean hit. His shoulder stays down. At the last second, Stoll sees Torres and braces for impact. He does this by standing more upright. This pulls his front shoulder out of the way, causing Torres to hit him in the chest/head/far shoulder (couldn't tell from quality of video).

Stoll put himself in harms way.

Right or wrong, it still comes back to Torres building up this bad reputation. He filled up the cup and now every little drop will make it overflow.

Are you serious? Wow... I guess the league wants to get that kind of hit out of the game but keep Brown's hit in.

Torres has been offered an in-person hearing. Traditionally 5 or more games, but doesn't have to be. No word on whether he's accepted yet.

IF there is a suspension, even after an in-person hearing, there will be a video from Shanahan explaining the rationale correct?

If so, that would definitely be a video I'd like to see because I think any suspension here is beyond ridiculous.
