Scott suspended seven games for check to the head:
Quote:
NEW YORK -- Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott has been suspended for seven games, without pay, for an illegal check to the head of Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson during NHL Game No. 138 in Buffalo on Wednesday, Oct. 23, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 5:49 of the third period. Scott received a match penalty for an illegal check to the head.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, Scott will forfeit $26,923.05. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Scott already has served three games of this suspension while awaiting an in-person hearing that was convened this morning.

In what way is 7 games a "Good amount for a first offender?" Have many other first offenders ever gotten that many before?

7 games for a first time offender. This had BETTER be the standard going forward.

Who cares, frankly. I wouldn't care if he had gotten 20. At least this prevents Rolston from playing him with Grigs for a few more games.

I just want consistency. Which the league has NEVER shown.

It's more games than he deserved, but fewer than I expected. I can live with it.

So to summarize,

The hit was NOT late. He is suspended 7 games purely for contact to the head. If this is the precedent, now Shanahan must be consistent.

That hit last night on Derek Smith by Ashton was dirtier than this. Should he not get a longer suspension?

I keep wondering if league management honestly thinks they're being rational or at all consistent with this ****.

Just saw that hit for the first time. WAY worse than Scott's hit. But, he'll get 2-5.

7 games for a first offender for that hit? I wouldn't mind so much if there was ANY consistency whatsoever.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist person, but the Sabres have been on the wrong end of a number of decisions the last few years.

If this was the precedent for all headshots going forward, I wouldn't have a problem with it. It isn't though; Dubinsky--a repeat offender--threw a late headshot the other day and didn't even get a hearing.

Shanahan and that entire office are a bunch of clownshoes

Not to get the tinfoil hat on, but this is as much of a message TO the Sabres than Scott. The NHL hates the Sabres right now.

I don't buy that.

This is about the players...not the teams.

NHL is using players like Scott and Kaleta as examples because they are deemed expendable in an effort to showcase that they are taking serious steps to curb head injuries and avoid class action lawsuits against them in the future.

So then explain Rolston's fine in the Kessel incident? I'm suprised the Sabres weren't fined here too.

When is he eligible to return? I'll be at the game versus the Leafs and I really want to see him in the lineup.
