The guy is a classless piece of trash and should be out of the league. I didn't want him on the team last year certainly didn't want him after Hollweg fiasco. Needless to say I wasn't happy when they resigned him and you pretty much know what I think of him after last night cowardly move. Hopefully the Isles just bring up Bootland from the minors to handle any fighting duties and the regular 4th line duty. He's faster than Simon and given the chance I'm pretty sure c an put up more points the Simon. The Isles need 1 forward that can atleast fight if called upon. Jackman is up but the guy is a human punching bag. There was no supporting Simon after the Hollweg incident and there is no supporting him know after kicking a guy.

Well that was as dumb a play as he could have done... probably another big suspension. However that second video shows he hit the skate and not the ankle, so Rutuu did act it up as usual... Still no excuse though!

I'm not going to use this incident as an excuse to bash the Isles fans. I don't think they care for Simon any more than we do at this point. I do hope, however, that the Isles' organization does something about the guy before he winds up really hurting someone. Anyone who has such a blatant lack of judgment and such a huge disregard for the well-being of other players doesn't belong on the ice.

He needs to be banned from the NHL. I hope we do part ways with him.

Ted was of course asked but did not comment on Chris at all (he wanted to watch it and see for himself what happened) so your joke doesnt really work. I guess anything to take a stab, huh?

The problem with 30 games is Simon just doesn't seem to be getting it. I'm not sure which is the most atrocious attack--the one on Hollweg or the one on the Ruuttu but both acts were deliberate attempts to seriously injure someone and both are cases where you could hardly blame the victim if he took Simon to court. Now I don't like Ruuttu at all and I'm sure there is a lot of feeling out there about Hollweg but both these attacks by Simon which follow fairly close together went way way over the line and I think the least that Campbell should have done is suspend him for the rest of the season and the playoffs.

"It's excessive," Nolan said Wednesday after the Islanders skated before that night's game against the Buffalo Sabres. "What I think has no bearing on the facts. The league suspended him ... now we have to support Chris while he goes through this process and give him all the compassion and all the support we can give him as an organization."
Usually I don't comment on Nolan's statements just because I'll come off as biased as a Ranger fan and in general it doesn't add to the conversation. But this guy is really getting to me at this point. It's not a big statement and it's not over the top, but when will this guy ever stop acting like a martyr. Everything is too harsh for his team and the incident is always blown out of proportion. He'll never admit that these acts are disgusting and need this punishment to eliminate them from the game. These little snide comments are getting under my skin. Probably an overreaction by me, but this is just another example of his attitude.

Just looking around the net at articles and comments by fans... it seems nearly unanimous that everyone feels this suspension falls terribly short of expectations. Campbell had a chance to redeem the sport to the mainstream. When this news hits the mainstream media we'll again see the Hollweg incident in addition to the latest infraction. It will only reaffirm the public's perception that this league is a joke. Campbell basically had carte-blanche to punish Simon and to make a big statement. He should have at least matched McSorley's suspension and he should have banned him indefinitely until the league reinstates him. This is a failure by Campbell. No one would have complained that any punishment was too harsh.

To quote an Islanders' moderator -

Quote:
It is Chris Simon...the guy who JUST FINISHED serving a 20+ game suspension for swinging his stick at another player's head. Obviously that suspension didn't teach him anything and didn't rehabilitate his on-ice behavior, at all.
The guy commit's yet another intent to injure and gets only 5 games more than what he did for the Hollweg incident? What kind of pointless message is Campbell trying to send with this?

Don't forget that Nolan and Simon are close, so one had to think that no matter what the length was Nolan wasn't going to like it. He didn't like the suspension last season so I knew this was coming. As much as I respect him for what he has been able to do with what he has, he is so blind that its laughable.

Yeah wasn't Nolan (his coach at the time as well) the one who originally came to Simon's aide when he was a youngster, with a heavy drinking problem? I think Nolan and Simon's father come from the same heritage as well...

I agree with you. I don't think the suspension was excessive at all. I know some people wanted more, and I can't argue with that. initially I thought maybe 50 games, but he got 30. It is a lot of games, actually the NHL record (dubious one at that). I think 30 gamnes is a fair amount and IMO I don't think he will ever play in the NHL again, but you never know with Wang and Nolan.

Simon's a blight on the sport at this point. Colin Campbell missed the chance to send a clear message about blatant intent to injure. WTF? The game was already decided, the stomp was not it retaliation to a hit, dirty or otherwise. It was just not a hockey play- totally unrelated to the game.

And now word is that Simon is going to appeal? Who does this hurt? The Isles don't need a useless piece of crap like Simon hogging up a roster spot. Here's hoping the Isles do the right thing and not insert this guy back into their lineup once the suspension is over.

In related news, The Philadelphia Flyers, feeling upstaged and green with envy are currently trying to swing a trade for Simon, in order to corner the market on braindead moron hockey players.

I do remember hearing that Simon credits Nolan with "saving his life". I'm not 100% sure if that is the incident or not honestly.

I can't believe that. Just take the consequences and get the help you need Chris. Why appeal, it ain't gonna change anything and if anything it makes him and the org. look bad, IMO.
