They can both start their Christmas break now, as far as I am concerned. May let them back in the new year. Pathetic and obvious attempts to injure.

I would do the opposite and not let them have a Christmas break

We're probably the most disappointing team in the league, but Ottawa has to be #2. What is wrong with this team?

Actions like what Thornton just did disgust me. I'm not against fighting but I am against stupidity he'll probably get a significant suspension maybe 10 games but in all honesty if it were up to me he'd be suspended for something like 20-30 games. I think the league needs to make an example out of guys who think they can do stuff like that and really send a message

Edit: also the **** was Neal doing? I only seen it once but didn't look like an accident to me. These things are not good for the game that's why I suggest very aggressive punishment.

Wow that Pitt/Bos game was a complete gongshow. Hurts the sport, the credibility of it. Just stupid.

Our Defense and Goaltending is nowhere near good enough?

I was asking about the Senators. The context of the post plus the topic it's under should've made that obvious.

I understand that there is consequences to big hits like that, but it's BS to assume that every hockey player should be willing to drop the gloves with a guy with hundreds of fights in his NHL career.

I don't think there's plausible deniability with Neal's actions. If you look at where he's looking you can tell he meant to make contact with Marchand.

With Thornton it was basically assault. Guy never had a chance to defend himself. Slew foot was dirty.

Both guys should face severe consequences. Never mind that neither has been suspended previously. They were both malicious acts with severe risk of injury.

Sounds like Neal will have his hearing over the phone. That means under 5 games right?

Ehhhh Thornton was cheap but I'm not convinced it's so much worse than what you see in a bunch of scrums. Dont think he realized Orpik was out, looks to me like he might be out when he hits the ice.

That doesn't happen without Neal's cheap shot on Marchand if you ask me.

Felt Emery on Holtby was worse.

I don't recall many scrums where a guy gets dragged to the ice (on his back) and pounded in the face.

I'm not saying he shouldnt get maybe 5 games but watch the replay: I think Orpik is out when he falls badly and Thornton gives him a quick jab but I think he's already out.

The slew foot is cheap but Orpik falls like a ton of bricks.

Not trying to condone it, but people crying for 20+ games need to settle down.

How many games did Emery get BTW?

I see a difference in guys that were punching back (Upshall) and guys who were looking away, then get slew-footed, and punched in the head on the ground, all without knowing what was going on.

THAT'S JUST ME THOUGH.

Now for something completely different.

An AHL team is going to be part of the Spengler Cup. I think it has happened once before, but I think it's pretty cool,. It would be fun to watch.

So since one of the reasons Tavares was so much better than other young players was since he "led his team to the playoffs."

By that logic, it's only fair if also say he's "led his team to being worse than the Oilers?"

Having a record worse than the Oilers is really hard.

Okay you're right, that is pretty rude. I think he's a nice guy and was a great player. I used to like him, heard him on air with Strudwick a couple months ago and thought he was great. So he's not an utter moron, but his legacy and reputation is becoming tarnished with his boneheaded, arbitrary, soft handed method of operating as league disciplinarian. There is seemingly no plan, no basis or no real mandate behind any of the suspensions he's been handing down IMO. There is no code in hockey anymore, and little to no respect amongst the players. Officiating is pathetic and Shanahan isn't fooling, nor scaring any of the players. If he wanted to send a message he would've suspended Dupuis at least 5, give Neal (repeat offender) 10 and Scott Thornton at 15-20.
