Life in prison or death penalty for Cody McLeod

The Wild fans on the main board are calling for 10-15 games for Cody McLeod's hit tonight. But honestly, I think that's not going far enough and think he should serve the rest of his life in prison to set an example for the rest of the league. Obviously, since these 2-3 game punishments aren't doing it, players need to be sent a message that (a) slowing down, taking no strides for a few seconds, and easing into a hit will not be tolerated, (b) using your hands to push players is no longer a part of hockey, and (c) if an opponent's skates get stuck in the ice and he starts falling head-first into the boards after a light push, you have the responsiblity to catch him, and preferrably even nudge him (gently) in the right direction.

And did you see who appeared at the scene of the crime? None other than Kevin "knee-breaker" Porter. I suspect conspiracy charges may be warranted against the two men.

The Minnesota announcers said it perfectly: "it's not that bad . . . he leans on him, bumps him". Leans? Bumps? I'm sorry, but if we are going to allow leaning and bumping, might as well allow McLeod to bring his AK-47 to the rink to mow down helpless defensemen. Just gutless.

While It's awful Spurgeon got hurt, that hit wasn't all his fault. Sure give him a game.

The Wild should send Spurgeon back to PeeWee's to learn how to take a hit and use the boards to absorb it and ring the puck around the boards.

I doubt that hit gets more than 2 games. Like it or not, a big part of the suspension culture in the NHL is based on whether the player is injured or not. Innocent hit, player injured = 2 games. And yeah, I've seen far worse hits in no-contact rec leagues.

Jokes??????????? I hope so not the worst of hits seen this year or even close to that..... sure give him a few games due to the fact that any ugly looking injury causing hit is getting suspended but watching that game without the fall there were probably ten or twelve hits which were in the same situation as that one and will never get looked at again

I can only hope. Our prisons are overcrowded as it is and the death penalty is far too controversial to associated the NHL with it. Maybe a compromise can be made.

Mike Yeo said we were targeting Spurgeon. Give everyone the death penalty.

Besides...killing McLeod will do you no good. He's the Highlander!

All you can do is knock him down. A lot.

If you cut his head of with a sword then you gain his powers.

remember, this is the same fan base who was calling for EJ to be suspended for his nasty hit on air last time we played

I think for the most part he has been good at not taking penalties but when defenders show him numbers, he relapses from time to time. It's frustrating when he boards someone because it almost always are situations where he has the time to let up. He is a veteran at this stage and sadly doesn't have the decision making of one.

The games where he avoids stupid penalties he has been ok. Not all that good but at least he doesn't hurt us.

Suspend him forever! Don't have to see him in an Avs jersey anymore...friggin McLeod.

Spurge >>>>> McLeod....he's the smaller player but 10x as good as McLeod will be. Give him a season long suspension.

No but seriously, I'm pissed cos Spurgie's a good player and he's on my fantasy team, McLeod's useless anyways.

I was all for throwing the book at him when I first saw it, but by the time the replays rolled I'd backed off. He'll probably get a game or two for going in on the numbers like that, but he didn't go in hard. What caused the most damage was Spurgeon pulling up.

Of course we were. And it played out pretty well might I add.

Of course were targeting him...he's on the opposing team!

That being said, Cody's actions were unacceptable, and I think he should be sentenced to 4 hours of community service.

Same punishment that Kronwall got for leaving his feet.

The game misconduct was enough punishment, and honestly it was as much Spurgy's falt as McC's

That being said, I don't care if he gets some games off because he has become a liability on this team. Malone, DVG and company can fill his spot just fine.

I agree with this. However, I expect the league to react in a way that is extreme one way or the other. Either a small fine, or a long suspension. Either way, I don't care much.

Sucks for Spurgeon, though. He needs to learn to not put himself in that position.
