Don't really care much for Hedman and his style of play so no skin off my nose. 2 games too much in my opinion.

Don't understand the suspension. Lupul is not a dirty player and the hit was borderline headshot nothing more. I was surprised they actually looked at it tbh; either way weak suspension call.

Hansen got 1 game for his elbow to Hossas head. Should have been the same in this case.

We saw worse hits got nothing or fine. This league will do anything to divert PO revenue to financially struggling teams.
How many game changing wrong calls Leafs got this season? 5-6? They put us on toughest schedule in entire league (no long stretches of home games, a lot of back-to-backs with other team rested). Now this?
I'm slowly warming up to booing Bettman again.

Or the B.Schenn charge to Volchenkov's head, also one game.

Such a BS punishment, no consistency.

IMHO both Hansen's and Schenn's plays were worse.

This. Exactly what I predicted and is fair IMO. Sucks for this to happen right when he returns and when we we need to make up for lost points over the past couple of weeks.

Should have only gotten 1 game, that's ********

Although I will admit, if our next game wasn't against Boston I wouldn't be as mad

Very fair IMO. It's crappy to lose him for 2 games but he has to follow the rules like everyone does.

1 game and fine is what I expected.

2 games is too harsh IMO. Hedman came back to the game minutes later and played a regular shift. Also Lupul has no History of being "dirty" player.


I really do think if Bettman and all the GMs weren't in attendance it's just a fine, Maybe 1 game.

Why are people surprised with the suspension? A guy like Kaleta or Cooke would've gotten 10+ games for the same hit.

Lupul doesn't have history, so he got only 2. Even as a Leafs fan, I think the suspension is justified. So many things wrong with that play. He paid the price for being dumb.

why don't they suspend guys who skate with their head down in the neutral zone while stickhandling the puck? that's one of the first things they teach you not to do, it's not Lupul's fault Hedman has no survival instinct!

Now that you've reminded me of this I'm even more perturbed by all of this.

Suspension is appropriate, but the timing really sucks.

I feel the same about the whole skating with a head down. But I am not angry about the two games although I think one would of been a more justified punishment.

I'm surprised. Doesn't follow what the league has given other first time offenders. Oh well.

Nope not joking at all. As I said elsewhere, whether he meant to hit him in the head or not is irrelevant. They want they head shots out of the game and even though it was minor, it was still a hit to the head.

As I've said before, nobody in the NHL gets destroyed more often than Victor Hedman.

Its unfortunate to lose Lupul for a pair, as he was really spearheading the Leafs attack, however it was a careless play on his part for the suspension is warranted.

That's quite a list, pretty common for huge guys like Hedman though.

Most of his life he could skate around with his head up his you know what and never worry about getting hit.

Didn't seem so bad in real time after watching the replay i agree. If it was the other way around Hedman hitting Lupul like that Leafs fans would want his head. Fair suspension, stupid play by Lupul.

No offense, but are you aware that Lupul is a big reason we have 3/4 points since his return? Or that we're 1-5 over the past couple of weeks?
