Kessel is going to get something from that for sure.

That video.

Although why Kessel kept poking everybody with his hockey stick I don't know.

He's hacking away at legs with his stick. How couldn't he?

the league may just not bother with a player like that. if he gets one i think it will be pretty minor.

He took 2 full fledged swings at two different players' Achilles. I think he should get 2-3 games for it along with a hefty fine.

I've got no tolerance for a player purposely swinging a stick at another player.

Kassian with another idiot play, that Hodgson trade just looks beyond laughable. Memo to Mike Gillis : Kassian is not Lucic! Keep up the good work Vancouver.

Hodgson is doing fine for the Sabres btw

not only is Kassian nothing special or more than a bottom6 player, Hodgson is a Top6 Center in the NHL

Kessel had me literally LOLing hard when I watched that video.


I don't think he'll get suspended more than a preseason game or two, if at all.

You can't go swinging your stick intentionally at people, regardless of what happened or who it was. If he doesn't get a suspension, it doesn't mean anything, because the people that do it are a joke.

I have no problem with what Kessel did. If it were Kane and some 6'7 goon started threatening to jump him then went towards him like that I'd hope he took a couple of swings too.

Scott is a gutless POS and deserved what he got for threatening to jump Kessel.

Hopefully, if Kessel is suspended it will be limited to pre-season games.

There's no room in hockey for people swinging their sticks like that. None.

I agree 100%. If it wasn't a Leaf (or a Hawk) I feel like UWT would feel differently.

I'm not even mad about that first hack which was garbage but then Scott is engaged with someone and Kessel takes a huge hack again. He was using his stick as a weapon at that point.

And then he spears him after that when Scott was getting held back. Just garbage.

On a side note, Miller got his ass handed to him though.

Yeah, if it was just the one swing Kessel took, I don't think he'd deserve anything. I mean... it was John freaking Scott that was picking a fight with him, any one of us would swing a piece of lumber in the immediate shock at that sight!

But then he took a whack at him when he was fighting someone else and then he inexplicably went out of his way to spear him, albeit softly, a few minutes later.

Think he should at least get one regular season game for all that.

There was nothing wrong with the initial slash, it was the slash he gave Scott after he was tackled by 2 Leaf players and he was underneath of them laying on the ice that was the problem. He looked like a little ***** when he did that.

If Kane did that, I would call him out for it too.

Bolland's annual injuries have already started. He's out tonight with a sore groin.

It's not even that bad...and saying this deserves 10 regular season games is a joke.

I would not. If Scott had gone on threatening to jump pretty much any skilled player and then tried to jump him I'd think they were justified. The guy is a loser. He shouldn't be going after guys 7 inches and 70 pounds lighter. I don't feel even slightly sorry for him.

That + the leg hacks. Yeah, that does. No place in the game for it.

soon enough we will find out which one of us has more accurately predicted what the league will do.

I NEVER said anything about predictions. I said what he deserves.

But thanks for putting words in my mouth.
