It will be IMO, there is definite elbow movement to the head.

No he didn't. Why? Because he hasn't fought Lucic.

I wasn't quite sure who it was, should've made that clear. Forgot to edit.


Either way, then its a similar situation. A hits B, so C fights D. A rests easy.

He's tough, but having a fight soon after you have been knocked loopy is not a good idea. A puck in the face and stitches is one thing. Elbow to the jaw is quite another.

It was an elbow and he extended it, but it wasn't like he swung his stick at the guy's head like Malkin did to Staal the other day.

Maybe a game or two but I have seen far worse already this season.
Thanks for the clarification.

No he wouldn't have. He played the puck, Simmons wasn't trying to hit anybody.

Erskine didn't need to throw that elbow at all and whatever he gets he deserves.....unless it's nothing.

Looked like elbow to the head. 2-3 games suspension IMHO.

Being a "tough cookie" has nothing to do with it. Chris Pronger is pretty tough, too, but his career is over due to concussion symptoms that never went away even though he returned for a while after the initial injury. I'm not saying Simmonds has a concussion. But you acted like he couldn't be injured because he wasn't disoriented. How the **** would you know?

If Schenn got 1 for a bodycheck... A blatant elbow to the face can get 5+...

Who knows what the league mandate is this year?

Disgusting hit. No reason for it other than the fact that Erskine isn't skilled enough to win a battle for the puck against Simmonds.

Bad hit by Erskine... definitely a suspension of 3-4 games. Not really sure what he was thinking, for all of his physical play you don't ever really see Erskine throwing any questionable hits.

Hope Simmonds is okay.

True, he could have a broken nose, possibly, but the symptoms of concussions are much more obvious: loss of balance, disorientation, inability to follow objects, etc. Vomiting is a SURE sign. Based on the few instances they showed of Simmonds on the ice and bench after the hit, he displayed none of those. Call it an educated guess. Stop being so emotional.

I'd say that's worth 4-5 games. It would be more if it wasn't reactionary.

But since Erskine is a tough guy, it's gonna be 8-10 games. NHL tolerates fighting but has different standards for tough guys.

The message is "we realize that most fans like/want fighting so we don't want you guys out of the game but if you do something stupid, you're gonna get hit harder than others".

And that's fine by me.

I'd be more bothered about no penalty on the play. 5 minute PP would be nice.

Why do you think I forgot options 2-9? I just wanted to know if he really though a 10 game suspension was reasonable in this instance?

Agreed. The "boarding" call on Rinaldo early in the first was pathetic, too.

Shoulder to chest?

Seriously though there's no excuse for this and that's an absolutely reckless play.

I'm gonna go as high as 10 games. We don't need to be elbowing people square in the face...

... and I HATE the Flyers.
