Really? You are going to compare a two hand slash targeted at the head to a one hand love tap that wasn't targeted at all?

Staal 2 and Malkin 4 games

That settles that.

Why should that matter? He clearly tried to use his stick as a weapon aimed at his head. Whether or not he succeeded is a moot point, you should always punish the intent.

I was wondering what took so long for a thread to start on this.

Just part of the fumble that took place. If Malkin get's something then so does Staal but personally I'd give neither something. Just an incident and that's it even if you could ague that Staal was worse but that'd just be silly because they were just as bad as each other really. No injury was caused and penalty minutes were served. Not everything has to be a suspension.

Wasn't much velocity on it, not as bad as some people are saying.

Nevertheless, you still cant hit him in the head, probably a game or two.

Also, that Staal two hander looked pretty bad too, right on Malkin's bad knee which is probably why he was so mad.

Staal chopped Malkin right before Malkin chopped Staal.

Both guys went at each other and it got ugly. There needs to be either 2 suspension or zero suspensions from that play.

So wait, let me get this straight. Now, watching the game, I didn't pay attention to anything before Staal attacked Malkin, that's what I saw and they showed a replay of them slashing each other.

Now, people say Malkin's dirty because he hit him in the head and the head is off limits, but I've seen numerous Pens fans bring this up and nobody answered it. Was Malkin cross checked in the back of the NECK? Isn't that a pretty serious hit also? Just curious.

I'm not defending it, apparently neither team cared that much about it or it would have been a much scrappier game, so it didn't seem as serious to the Penguins and Rangers players as it did to you guys.

To me, it's the heat of the moment for the players.

I can only imagine what this thread would be like if a Flyer did that to Crosby.

I'm having a hard time understanding your point.... Slashes on the wrist and back are just that, slashes, it's a penalty... Swinging a stick intentionally at a players head is assault

Couple of goons gooning it up. Not even thread worthy.

Maybe Staal shouldn't be jumping Malkin after the whistle?

Eh it doesn't matter, Penguins players and fans will always get hate no matter what. Roo Mad Bro, you said you could only imagine a thread if a Flyer did this to Crosby. I can also, and it would involve this whole board celebrating.

Just another typical main board, Pens hate thread.

Staal slashed malkin and then at the minute 2:06 you can see that he hits him in the neck with his stick.

I would give them 2 games each.

Lol. That's a tomahawk ? He should get a game maaaaaaaaybe for even attempting it but that was weak as hell. Couldn't even see it at first.

Staal shoudlve been penalized himself too though.

No. Staal chopped him just as hard and ran him AFTER the whistle.

It wasn't at his head. The head just happened to be hit.

Just a devils advocate here:

I get that the FSU chop motion was dirty and should not be tolerated.

However.

Malkin was on his back defending himself. I don't blame Malkin's instinct-screw Staal is what he was thinking (as Staal hit him late and was the aggressor the entire time including falling on Malkin with no control over his own stick which was on Malkin's head and neck area).

I don't care who is on the ground, that player does need to protect themselves and send a message they won't tolerate an aggressor who doesn't have control over their own stick.

Give them both a fine.

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.
you don't say. I thought the Pens, and Crosby especially get away with anything...

Staals use of the stick was way worse than a light bump on the helmet

I think both players stepped over the line, but Malkin's actions were much more dangerous. I love Geno, and I don't blame him for retaliating, but you can't slash someone across the head. It's that simple. If he gets suspended, I will completely understand.

Both deserve 3-5 games. Stupid and unnecessary swings by both guys.
