I was fine with the 4 games to Asham until I watched the video. No prior history, he didnt hit him in the head and that gets 4 games. I have seen much worse in the playoffs get away with 2 games. Not to mention the no suspension against Weber which had the same intent as what Asham did.

I agree. Dont like the amount for Asham at all. Neal getting 1 game is annoying but not a surprise. He was finally started to make an impact.

Well we weren't having issues scoring goals anyway. Maybe they will focus more on playing defense now.

I know I am a Flyers fan, but when I saw that I assumed Grossmann was attempting to cut the puck off with his body so Neal couldn't go around him and grab it. He ended up making contact with Neal... obviously a penalty, but for a guy who has knee issues... why the hell would he be trying that on purpose... his face afterwards says it all..

As for the Schenn hit... I can see how people are upset. I don't think it was a dirty hit, but he did leave his feet. However, I do think the leaving of the feet isn't a major deal for his hit. Again I understand people are upset about that..

As for the Flyers "faking injuries," come on... Couturier got hit in the chest by a jumping Neal. It wasn't the nastiest hit in the world, but he probably just had the wind knocked out of him. As for Giroux... Neal knocked his helmet down in front of his eyes (kinda funny) and he couldnt see, lost his balance and fell over... People are getting a bit ridiculous with the accusing them of faking injuries.

I am not here to start crap... I am just giving my honest opinion.

You cannot make this **** up. Shanahan describing Giroux's Michelle Kwan impression after Neal's second hit:

"The hit dazes Giroux, who, while attempting to adjust his helmet, loses his helmet and falls to the ice."

Is that ****ing serious? Tell me that's not serious.

Also, tell me it's not serious that Simmonds didn't get anything for jumping off the bench and directly into a fight (at Berube's clear orders).

The Pens were reprehensible on Sunday, and they deserve punishment for it. But I think the NHL perceives the Flyers as angelic victims, which is just an absurd mischaracterization of how things actually went.

Sigh...

Carkner only gets one game for pulling a Gillies on Boyle and Neal gets one for making a couple questionable hits after getting kneed.

Whatever Shanny, keep up the madness...

Good Lord, watch the Shanahan video. They suspended him for the Giroux hit; not the Couturier hit. Honestly, how bass ackwards is that?

Whoa man, hold on a sec, you should see the main boards, they don't think one game is enough for Neal

All of the main boards is just full of ******** saying how much of a joke it is.

Knowing the Pens haters on the main boards, they probably think Neal should be suspended for the whole season.

That Neal decision...I have no words.

Penalty for interference on Couturier and that should do the trick. Flyers (and Rangers) fans saying he got off lightly. Current day flyer fans wouldn't know what to do if they were sent back to the days of the Broad Street Bullies

Funny how you neglect to mention the most overtly faked injury in that game...

By the sounds of it, he was essentially suspended for just running around taking runs at people. And I agree that that's what he was doing.

Don't think it was the hit itself, just the fact that there were two of them so close together.

Asham: Honestly, without the punch, I don't think he gets more than a game or two. Backstrom's cross-check was worse than his and came when the game was over and he'll probably just get the automatic 1-gamer.

Bylsma, just throw Tangradi on one of the top two lines instead of plugging Richard Park there like you want. There's not much to lose though I know it's in your nature to play the vets.

Oh dear god, I forgot about that possibility... He did that at the end of the season and they won the game too...

I can't believe how outraged people are on the main board saying Neal got off lightly.

Shows the difference in suspensions for star players and 4th line plugs.

I forgot about the possibility that Bylsma might put Park on Malkin's line. He did that at the end of the season against Philly and they won...

Agreed. And the punishment is fair. It's just that there's no sense whatsoever in not giving Weber even more.

Lack of consistency over time is one thing. Lack of it over six days is another.

Oh believe me I know. Shanny has been unreal in the POs. I don't get it.

On a side note, I would have loved to have seen MacLean blow up and troll Torts for that elbow on Alfie. I thought the Rangers didn't pull that stuff??? Hmmm...
