i'd love the book to be thrown at him as the saying goes but it'd still be a bit janky if he got the same suspension or more as keith (repeat offender) for his intentional retaliatory slash to coyle's face.

He pretty clearly lost it and stabbed a guy in the face. Jabbed the blade right under his visor to be sure. Mad as hell.
Just baffling

He didn't even get shoved hard .

Wow that is just insane.
They should force him to play without a stick for the rest of the season.
If that isn't a 10+ games suspension, then what is?

Jeez, right to the cheek bone... luckily Nyquist didn't hit the eye of Spurgeon or he could have said bye bye to his career. Disgraceful, violent and definitely warrants a long suspension.

Absolutely not. I hope Stewart lets Nyquist know that he can't pull **** like that. I don't care if Nyquist fights back

You really can't say that he wasn't trying to hit him in the face. He was facing Spurgeon the whole time. It was 100% a retaliatory hit and you could see the look on his face right after that he knew that he screwed up.

If the league really wants to punish us for 5+ games, make it so he has to play 20 minutes a game. Nyquist has been bad this season

Deserves a lengthy suspension. Hate seeing that on my team.

Was that intentional? Wow, I'm shocked if it is. That's some serious rage. I mean we all want to do when pissed that is brutal if it was premeditated.

That's no high stick, that's a spear:

Quote:
62.1 Spearing - Spearing shall mean stabbing an opponent with the point of the stick blade, whether contact is made or not.
And it should have been 5 and a game:

Quote:
62.3 Major Penalty - A major penalty shall be imposed on a player who spears an opponent (see 62.5).
Quote:
62.5 Game Misconduct Penalty - Whenever a major penalty is assessed for spearing, a game misconduct penalty must also be imposed.
Should be at least 5 games, but anything's possible given the DoPS' continued incompetence.

Even as a Wings fan, I'm hoping Spurgeon is back and can take his revenge in person. That would be awesome. I would absolutely be on Spurgeon's side.

A face spear...don't see too many of those. Dangerous play. Needs to answer the bell for that crap but I'm guessing he won't. 10 game suspension, minimum IMO. Not saying the NHL has the balls to do that but that's what I would do. Your stick cannot be a weapon. Especially in the face.

It's just completely baffling. He's not physical. He doesn't trash talk. He doesn't scrum. He doesn't take penalties.

I don't get it.

Yeah. Strange that. Often said by family members, siblings, former teachers etc of Serial Killers. "He was always so quiet, polite. The last person you'd ever expect this of". Go figure. Human nature, strange thing.

Exactly. You can imagine Ott rolling his eyes at having to protect Nyquist and take a beating from Stewart. Just so glad that Spurgeon isn't hurt badly

He should be thrown out indefinitely. That's ****ing absurd and anyone defending it or justifying it is a joke.

Like Pierre McGuire just said. "If that doesn't get a suspension, its officially open season in the NHL"

NHL has come down pretty clearly with it being less than that with Duncan Keith. I get people calling for that length, but for a guy with no history to get more than a guy with a history of stick to head abuse that would be pretty surprising.
