It's no surprise, Pens do this **** all the time and act like its cool. "Oh well they were slashing us." Not in the ****ing face though. They should stop acting like they're above this, they're cleary not and take things waaaaay too far all the time.

If you have Rangers and Flyers fans agreeing over something than you know you must be a real *******.
Agreed. It's flat out amazing what the Pens get away with.

Intentionally swinging a stick at someone's head is WAY different than a slash on the wrists.

Not that I disagree in terms of which is more likely to cause an injury, but if this happened in open ice and refs saw the whole thing, I'd imagine Staal would get a 2 minute penalty for slashing, which he absolutely deserved, but I have a feeling that Malkin would get more for striking someone over the head with his stick. That's...unusual.

Having said that, it's over now, I don't really care what happens. It was an exciting part of an otherwise horrible NYR game.

If he wasn't Malkin. It probably would be fine at most.

Headshots with the stick are usually ok according to this thread.

Funny because the rational Rangers fans in this thread are saying it deserved a game misconduct at most.

So the hack at Malkin's knee & the cross check to the back of his neck are fine. Malkin should have just taken the beating. So what if Staal blows out his knee or breaks his neck?

I wouldn't care if Malkin got suspended. It sets a precedent that if you're gonna play dirty he can do it right back. He has to protect himself. You know the refs aren't.

Why would either of those things matter? You can't use your stick as a weapon.

Though I'm going to say he doesn't get anything.

Oh I don't care about that. I just don't mind Staal attacking him for it.

He's always good for doing something stupid when things aren't going his way.

Pretty typical Malkin hissyfit type reaction. He probably should be warned/ fined for that type of behaviour, but he won't.

If you're banning Malkin (and I'd give him a game or two) then you're banning Staal for his slash and cross-check. Two of them got caught up in the heat of the moment and took it too far. Few games to remind them to keep the sticks out of it.

As others have already pointed out, if Malkin is to be suspended, so is Staal.

Both were carelessly throwing there sticks around and both could have done serious damage.

BUT in saying that, I don't think either is suspension worthy, but if one is so is the other.

Oh ya, cause Staal crosschecked and slashed him in the head and neck.

Other parts of the body? Too bad, it's hockey.
Head is off limits.

Hitting a guy in the shoulder after he touches the puck isn't illegal, regardless of how bad he's hurt, would be the reason why.

And, incidentally, Mitchell didn't care about head injuries when he went headhunting on Jonathan Toews, giving him recurring concussion problems he still deals with.


Anyways, my view is if Staal didn't want to get high sticked, he shouldn't have slashed Malkin twice, then tackled him.

Edit: This sort of reminds me of the time Lecavalier got, I think, a major for whacking PK Subban back after Subban spent the whole shift slashing him. To his credit, Staal didn't fake an injury on this play like Subban did on that one.

Problem is none of them will get anything for any of it. Last night was a brutal display (not just this game) of how nothing's changed in terms of the NHL getting a grip on dangerous play. What's it going to take? A death? Paralysis? Broken necks? I don't know, but the league is playing a lethal game of chicken by not clamping down.

Slashes and cross-checks happen all the time , your boy Crosby led the league a few years back in slashing calls.I am thinking you would take exception is someone cracked him over the head with their stick.
Stick to the head is not acceptable ,he could defend himself with his mits. It was a stupid thing to do.
Marty got what 25 games with his hit to Donald Brashear . That was vicious but not something that should be tolerated.
Malkin took some slashes and such , what is he supposed to do,not hit Staal over the head with his stick? That sounds silly.

The rangers are too talented of a team to take a step down and play dirty to try to win. I don`t think I like torts as a coach for the rangers.

Hart Trophy winners tend to get away with this kind of stuff.

If there was an injury it would be a different story.

I'm absolutely amazed to see Penguins fans in here defending this.

This is indefensible. Yes. The head is ENTIRELY different than your back, or shoulders, or legs, or wrists.

Yeah, that slash on the wrists can break them. Slashing at the top of a helmet isn't about to fracture someone's skull.

It's not defending it as much as not giving a **** in the first place.

So if someone makes a dirty play you're allowed to whack them in the head with your stick? I didn't know about that rule.
