yah i say he should get 5 at least since belak wasnt on purpose imo but he should have no reason to have his stick that high and swing it even though he is offbalance. Turco looked at smyth and raised his stick to get him right in the mouth. That could have been worse that it was. but i say the league only gives him 1 game.

Should get the same as Belak! Attempt to injure and blow to the head of all places!
Should not have even finished this game but I still say same as Belak. Just my two cents worth!

Cheers

I say a backhanded slash to the face is worth atleast 3 games. It seemed very deliberate to me. Intent to injure? I think so... Smyth doesn't get along well with goalies.

He should have been tossed tonight.
Along with a 5 minute misconduct, intent to injure.

Belak gets 8 for an accidental one and Turco does it on purpose, but I bet the NHL doesn't have the balls to give him what he deserves. If he gets 2 or less, I hope Leaf/Oil fans storm the head office. :p

they should give him the regular season and dallas would most likely lose every game but they wont. NHL probably didnt even review the play.

I say 2 games..imo Messier was far worse but then again Mess is a future H.O.F so maybe he got special treatment.

I'd send him into space on general principle, but I went with 3-4. It looked pretty damn bad. On par with Mess's and I thought he deserved 4. Turco gets off maybe a little lighter, so 3.

I was picking the kids up so I missed the incident. IMO, that was a delibreate attempt to injure and should be dealt with similarily to Belak. There can be no other conclusion. Turco looks at Smitty, goes into a backswing and slashes him in the face. How did he not get a match penalty?

Smytty could have lost an eye or got a fracture. This was as ugly as the messier / belak for sure and the NHL better do something about it.

Sure... then why was the blade of your stick 5 feet off the ice when you were on the ground?

It's called, someone on Dallas' video team advised Turco to make a statement that it was an accident so the NHL takes it easy on him.

Considering the recent trend of suspensions (the Chris Simon suspension was a tad silly), Turco should get 3-4 games. That was some nasty stickwork.

I can't believe Turco lied about the incident too. That's pretty low.

That really was a crock of dung. "I accidentally took a back swing. I accidentally followed through. I mean, oops."

How dumb does he think we are? I'm going to be supremely pissed if the NHL buys the farce.

He didn't get anything because the Flames did not send in the tape. They figured that if Turco was suspended, he would not play vs. the Oilers last night which would have surely resulted in an Oilers win. Smart move IMO as Clark wasn't hurt that bad.

I HATE TURCO !! That's one thing Flames and Oilers can agree on.

I can't stand turco hes is the most arrogant goalie around he should get 5 games at least for high sticking smyth in the face on purpose for no reason, league wants to eliminate high sticks, and stick work will never happen with clowns like turco pulling stunts like that, very much uncalled for Colin Cambell get your vcr ready once again.
