Seems, if anything, slightly low. It was a careless play, but it was clearly without malice, and the repeat offender categories are not triggered because of the duration since the last offense and the type of hit, it seems. It was legitimately dangerous, albeit unintentional.

I wouldn't have been surprised if Colin Campbell tacked on a few games due to the apparent severity of the player's injury, but 2-4 was about what I expected.

I just hate how Richards and Cooke decapitated players and got nothing...the hypocrisy of the league.

Whatever. Let him rest, and let him get pissed off right before playoffs. He will not let Sid the ***** take the scoring title

This is what bothers me too. Ovy simply should not have been suspended. It is what it is and at least it isn't 5 games like some were fearing (hoping for).

Definitely not.

Also, if the ref hadn't ejected him, there'd be no suspension either. The ejection is what put the story on TSN/ESPN front page and got everyone talking about it and watching it 1000 times in slow motion. Ridiculous stuff.

nah....this is not what bothers me. what bothers me is the quick trigger that the league has developed for Ovechkin. The Campbell thing and the Kaleta hit are very similar. Neither were hits on the numbers. Both were 5 and a game. These are Ov penalties.

I am convinced that the league is trying to get him to tone it down and they are not going to cut him any slack.

I'll take the cup being half full approach on this one. Ovie hasn't looked himself of late and I think this time off should help to reenergize and get him focused again.

Also don't mind seeing Chimera on the #1 line again as he brought some energy to that line in the third period yesterday.

Chimera - Backstrom - Knuble
Semin - Morrison - Laich
Fleischmann - Belanger - Fehr
Walker or Bradley - Steckel -Gordon

I was expecting to find a thread about this or simply see the convo. continue in the GDT.... this is a nice way to keep the conversation here primarily among Caps posters. There are plenty of other threads where other posters can discuss. (note: and I typed that before seeing HSHS' post, lol)

I am not surprised about the suspension given the circumstances.

And for that matter, I was not surprised by the lack of a suspension to Cooke based on the lack of a suspension to Richards earlier in the season, regardless of Cooke's prior suspensions. I also took note that C. Campbell was not directly involved in the Richards' decision due to Florida's involvement, but the need for "consistency" between those two decisions.

apologies if the link to the comments by Knuble and Fehr (before the suspension was announced) were already posted link


I think most, if not all, Caps fans would agree with Knuble.

Then I guess that the league would stop suspending players except if they pull a Bertuzzi or a Cormier.

Ovechkin actually got the star treatment because Lapierre from Montreal got 4 games for the same hit.

And since Comcast has failed to show up to my house, I can cancel them out and get Direct TV. Sadly FiOS is not an option.
