Comple Bertuzzi job on Mark Mancari of the 67s tonight. Basically had a hold on Mancari from inside the Wolves blueline, and then Musselman gave Mancari a shot to the head just outside the 67s blueline.
He got 2 for roughing and a match penalty. It happened with 7 minutes left in the game.
I was at the game last night, unfortunately I didn't see exactly how he went down but the place went silent as he was lying motionless on his face for a good 2 minutes before he slowly started to move. I hate when players get away with something like this (Bertuzzi, Musselman). They deserve to get the crap beaten out of them. It's probably for Musselman's best interest that he's suspended because he'd have an entire team out for him tommorow.
For some reason I thought it was Stortini who dished out the blind sider
That's what Sportsnet or TSN said in their highlight package, so you may have just seen that. Of course, they were wrong. They also claimed it was Staubitz who came over to take on Stortini/Musselman, when in fact it was Bickell.
What a load of garbage... McQuaid gets a put out for the season and the clown gets nothing... not to say mussleman doesn't deserve the penalty (it was a terrible act), but that shot on McQuaid was pure garbage and had anything been called, mussleman wouldn't have done what he did.
I just saw a clip of it... holy over-reaction. I had heard that he had a big windup and came out of nowhere... pfft... hardly. He was side-by-side with him and gave him a half-punch to the face. If that's worthy of a permanant ban, then David Branch has his head so far up his ass it isn't even funny.
TheSpecialist - MacT thinks he was that good of a hockey player when in actuality he was no better then a Louie Debrusk.
Cry me a river.What musselman did was brutel and yes he got what he should have he a bad apple the ohl has got rid of.To say that he would not have don it that may well be but he did it.Things are going to get much worse before they get better for him There is talk that criminal charges may be laid.And he can not play any where for the next year.
then David Branch has his head so far up his ass it isn't even funny.
You say that as if it's news.....
Seriously though.... I don't have a problem with Musselman being expelled from the league, but I think the commissioner's office has to do a better job of making sure that a consistent suspension fits a particular crime.
Having said that, a repeat offender should receive a higher punishment than a first timer, but that doesn't happen consistently either.
No thats not why this happened if that was the case he could have got more if that is possible.If it was proven that this was a revenge he would have been in alot more trouble.
Yeah, that is exactly why it happened. McQuaid got put out for the season on a cheapshot, and Mussleman went out for revenge. The guy got over a year long suspension... how much more trouble could he have gotten into?
Musselmen should have got 60 games not a life time ban.If he was not a bad apple that is what he would have likely got.The fine is a good thing there is no way musselmen should have been out there at that time.I wish the fine was 20 grand really send a messege.
