Rinaldo gets 2 games for hit on Ericsson

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=387696

Rinaldo lined Ericsson up on the play and hit him as he turned his head after making a pass behind the Detroit net.

Rinaldo was assessed a charging minor on the play.

------

******** call on the suspension! I think it was a great hit as MANY others do, Red Wings fans alike.

Sounds like it's a cumulative punishment starting with the Devils game.

Might as well trade him at the deadline. As long as he's in orange and black every big hit will be over scrutinized until he's been completely neutered.

Without his slewfoot on Parise he probably doesn't get suspended here. But, he did do that. And then he did this. So here we are.

It was a penalty but if he hadn't had two finable offenses in the past 5 games there wouldn't have been a suspension. He could have creamed Ericsson without leaving his feet, hope he can figure that out because a good hit is still fun to watch.

He was fined for the **** in the NJ game. There's absolutely no reason he should get suspended for a hit in a game a week later.

He didn't leave his feet. His skates came off the ice after contact is made, which happens in every hit. No different that Kronwall on Briere.

Or palyer who took elbow to JVR's head during Dallas game?

JVR clearly took his head to Moore's elbow.

Right, as I've said elsewhere, I think he was told "ok fine, but don't give me another reason to talk to you."

The Flyers and the league acknowledged that they've had back-and-forths about Rinaldo and what's been done to keep his discipline under control, so I don't think Shanahan was waiting to put the screws down.


Keep in mind Shanahan featured Rinaldo in a video during pre-season as a player making a good decision in hitting a player.


All said, this is a speeding ticket.

Terrible suspension. The hit was illegal but not dirty. He ran at Ericsson, but the hit was body on body. The 2 mins was all that was needed, IMO. The suspension was totally unnecessary. And I'm saying this as a wings fan.

I don't think it was just for this hit, though. I think this goes back to his slewfoot on Parise. This is a hint from Shanahan to him to calm down a little. I think they're just trying to reign him in a bit to keep him under control.

Riley Cote and Coastey don't like this either on twitter. A borderline penalty gets you a suspension. It isn't right and I hope the Flyers don't step back on the physical side of the game. It is what makes hockey hockey.

Again, as others have said, if the NJ game wasn't so recent, this most likely isn't a suspension. Don't really have a problem with it, and I applaud Shanahan for doing these videos.

Did Campbell do them before?

Considering there was hit performed on one of our players that was similar...just bogus.
