Can we please not have EVERY play turn into a suspension question. Sweet jeebus let them play and let them handle it.

Seriously? Should we call 911 on him too? Leave this stuff to the Montreal fans, Skinner will get dealt with on the ice.

Based on literally every single reply in this thread, I'm surprised that there are as many as 7 people who voted yes, haha.

Looked like a side suplex! Greasy move, no suspension, featherweight beatdown required though.

I think the league is better off having fewer reviews and suspensions, not more.

I was unaware Skinner tried this before. That being said, probably nothing more than a fine and a warning that next time he does it there will be greater consequences.

Bergeron doesn't usually get upset about too much, so when I saw him going nuts I figured it was something that really pissed him off. NESN didn't show the replay at the time.

Looked like an accident. Now let's delete this thread, and pretend it never happened.

I don't know.... I watched the slow-mo video and it looked obvious to me that it was a slew foot. And a pretty nasty one at that.

That said, pretty sure they don't give suspensions to figure skaters in the NHL. Have Marchand punch him the face a few times. Problem solved.
Couldn't agree more. 90% of them are under 5'10 and go down like they've been shot if you look at them weird.

But definitely not a suspension worthy play.

It was a bizarre incident and worthy of discussion. Bergeron isn't one to go off for no reason (hell, he didn't even go off when Burrows bit him), and that in itself makes it interesting. Talking about it isn't whining, nor is it a call for a suspension. I don't see anyone doing the latter.

13 people so far in the poll are calling for a suspension.

looks like some honorable posters are in that mix. I'd like to hear them explain why.

Semin took the most pathetic dive I've yet seen this young season. It was in the Boston zone right after a Carolina PP ended (hardly the best time for it) and gave the Bs numbers going the other way, although we didn't score. I was surprised Edwards gave him a pass on it (or missed it).

Love, love, love the organ music during the entire altercation. Reminded me a ton of the good old days. And no suspension.

Not exactly a scientific poll, but if someone feels that way, they should state why, and let's talk about it. It's a discussion board, right? As I said, talking about it isn't demanding or whining. I don't see anyone doing that.

If there is a history (which someone linked there was a warning last year for a simliar incident), then I think it's worth having the NHL look at it. That said, I wouldn't expect a suspension from it anyway.

I'd prefer we handle it on our own. Too bad the teams don't meet again until April though.

Dirty play by Skinner, but I don't think it was a slewfoot.

Suspension? Seriously? Really everyone?

What have we done to ourselves to be even suggesting this?

No. Skinner can get his ass kicked next game if he wants to be a dick. That's the way things work. And thank god things work like that.

Sure hope we're not turning into "THOSE" kinds of fans.

It looked like a slewfoot to me when I re-watched the gamcenter feed last night, but now that I've seen the slow-mo, doesn't look as obvious. Kinda greasy on Skinners part either way. B's just need to make sure they finish every check on that guy for the rest of the season.

What do you mean turning into? Between this thread and this relentless 3 year obsession with our PP while our PK goes unmentioned means we're already there. Sometimes I feel like i'm in a southern fanbase sans the good weather.
