Not worth making a stink about, but... meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

3 games was certainly more than I was expecting. I was positive he'd get at least 1 but figured that would be that.

Malkin didn't board Boychuk, but that's a terrible ****ing call by the league there. Gaustad, McNabb and Gerbe all have taken similar hits this season without even a review.

Ridiculous. I hope he doesn't shy away from the physical play when he returns.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Sabres can use an emergency recall for someone that's been suspended..........think I remember hearing/reading that somewhere........

Excuse me for using a creative bit of locally relevant hyperbole in expressing how unwarranted the length of the suspension struck me as. I'll call off my team of lawyers and investigative reporters

I would say a fair call. Didn't have the puck, and was pretty defenceless. Myers is a good defenceman, and should only learn from this experience.

I'm surprised Montreal doesn't want the win taken away from Buffalo too.

Was expecting 1, 2 at the most, but 3 seems a bit much. Oh well.

We can't (and the team) can't dwell on this. Take our lumps and push forward.

Here's the story, Sabres' Myers suspended three games:
Quote:
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers has been suspended, without pay, for three games for boarding Montreal Canadiens forward Scott Gomez during NHL Game #1033 in Buffalo on Monday, March 12, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Myers will forfeit $14,189.19. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

The incident occurred at 13:11 of the third period. A minor penalty for boarding was assessed on the play.

For a full explanation of the decision, complete with video, please click on the following link: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...d=60&id=164475.

I understand the suspension. It was dangerous, but wow, try to find some consistency in your bans instead of pulling out random **** out a hat. It's so stupid, you never know what you're going to get with this ****ing idiot. He's worse than Campbell.

Bingo. Not that I didnt enjoy the hit though...

Reasons for 3 games off the top of my head: Reactionary/blind retaliation type hit, targeted head area, player did not have puck. My guess is he would have gotten a game at most if he wasnt acting after being hit in the face.

Obviously Shanny doesn't think Myers is a star.

THIS.

If Gomez had the misfortune of suffering a slight concussion on the play and was out indefinitely, how many would Myers have gotten? 10? For a first time offender? I guess our mammoth thug defender has arrived.

And it's ridiculous for a Sabres fan to bring up the Zubrus hit as a prior incident, someone please correct me but wasn't that hit reviewed and regarded as legal after considering both players size and the circumstances of the play?

I think 3 games is the right length, it was pretty dangerous

BUT I've seen a handful of hits equally bad that led to no suspensions at all!

It just seems completely arbitrary, and that is what is annoying

i would have even been fine with 2. 3 is probly 2 too many though.

Its not that it isnt deserved, its the consistemcy of the suspensions.

Considering the history (Myers had a stern talking to by Shanny) and the way it all went down, I expected a 1 game.
But 3? Well, I'll waste my time by typing, I hope this kind of hit gets 3 games automatic from here on out. But I doubt it.
