McKee's comments on the May cross check

...at the bottom (Ice Chips).

Gee, either McKee was still in shell-shock mode with being beaten 6-1 or he is a real class act. I don't think I've ever heard anyone make comments like that before about other players.

I agree though, that May didn't mean to do that and would be shocked if the NHL suspended him.

May and McKee are friends from when they played togther...which makes the likelihood of May "attempting to injure" McKee slim to none.

BUT...The ref doesnt call a game on whos friends or not. If someone comes an cross checks one of our players in the head, and doesnt get suspended, even if there friends, everyone here would be livid. Dont get me wrong I like May, but he does deserve a suspension, and imo, will get two games!

Fedz is right.

I agree that May didn't intend to hurt McKee...but he did cross check him in the face. I wouldn't have called a Match, but it was an easy Major and a Game Misconduct.

I think May will get one game. We have seen far less offences get a one-game slap on the wrist...this one should be no different.

I don't think May will get suspended. I think it was one of those plays that looked bad at full speed, but once they review the replay, you can see that there was no intent to injure.

Then again, May has been suspended a few times already, so they might not give him the benifit of the doubt.

He is. I would love to have him on the Canucks, perfect partner for Jovo(not that Malik has done a bad job, he's been great!).

I think we probably would have taken Sykora.

Mckee is a great guy and he meant what he said, they are good friends and i'm sure it wasn't on purpose but hey, may deserves what he gets, there really wasn't a reason for it with a 1min or so left in the game
