Lapierre suspension? UPDATE: Suspended 4 Games

Can we all petition Colin Campbell to suspend Lapierre? That was a nasty hit, but maybe we can get lucky and he gets suspended for the rest of the season?

It's for the good of the team, we're better off without him.

Here is my example of a letter:

Mr. Campbell,

Good day Mr. Campbell, my name is tiz and I would like you to seriously consider suspending Montreal Canadiens forward Maxim Lapierre for the rest of the season. I personally feel his hit on Scott Nichol yesterday evening in San Jose was worthy of a suspension, but I also feel his play this year also merits a look from the NHL office. Mr. Lapierre is a very disappointing -13 this year, only Paul Mara is worse and his case may be referenced in a follow up letter requesting another suspension of a Montreal Canadiens player. Mr. Lapierre has followed up his career year last season where he scored 15 goals and 13 assists in 79 games with an underwhelming 6 goals and 6 assists in 65 games. Needless to say, he was probably worse than Matt D'Agostini who also couldn't be sent down to the Bulldogs. Unlike D'Agostini, the Canadiens were unable to find a team stupid enough to trade anything for Mr. Lapierre. I call upon you, Mr. Campbell, I know that our fanbase and the NHL head office has had some problems in the past (See: Richard) but I guarantee many of those sins will be forgiven if you help us by removing Mr. Lapierre from our roster.

I would like for you to take your time in considering this, as it is of great concern for myself and the rest of the fans.

Sincerely,
-tiz
Montreal Canadiens fan since 1983

I'm a big fan of Lapierre. He's starting to get his confidence back out there too. He's been one of our solid forwards last two games imo.

Hope he doesn't get suspended.

As for the OP well, obvious troll. No reason to even respond to that post.

I believe he should be suspended at least 2 games, but if the hit on cammalleri is anything to go by, the NHL will close their eyes. The league and it's officials are becoming pathetic. Tripping call on Pleks with a clean hip check and no penalty on Lapierre for boarding, pretty sad the officials don't know the sport they officiate...

I'd hate the hit more if it wasn't Ray Ferraro calling Lapierre out. Sort of like Jeff Dahmer calling Ed Gein a jerk.

Suspend both him and Markov. Call up White and Subban.

Yeah that was a bit much. I thought Ray was going to cry the way his voice was going.

I love how Ferraro always attempts to make the broadcast about himself, trying to get in a 'line of the night' for Sportscentre to quote. Douchebaggery at it's finest.

I was hoping they would fight it out in the parking lot after the game, I would have even paid to see that.

I think that the SJ analyst was exagerating a lot the hit of Lapierre and that Nichol could be an excellent soccer player (the shaking leg, etc.).

It was like Lapierre pull a McSorley or Bertuzzi and they describe him as a guy who does more cheap shots than M.Richards. Come on, they see him once a year or two. Lapierre is mostly a victim of those kind of hit and he never complains.

Usually I don't like dirty hits, but sadly they are common in the NHL, wich does not mean that it is acceptable. He deserved a 10 and the rest of the game at worst.

Next.

Gee it wasn't much of a hit, he hardly touched him. It was also far enough away from the boards. Ferraro is a bit of a jerk really...nothing due a suspension in my humble opinion.

I tihnk its worthy of a 2 game suspension to send a message. But the OP was loltastic. Please suspend him because he's minus 13 this year and sucks.

I'm listening to the Fan 590 and apparently the league has called a hearing for Lapierre...

He should be suspended, but I hope he doesn't. He has hardly been physical all year and a suspension would scare him away from it for the rest of the season.

I bet they make an example out of him.

Not to say they shouldn't, because it was a dumb, dirty and dangerous play (3D!), but the NHL is probably licking its chops that a 4th liner did this and not one of its star players.

Suspension worthy for sure... an embarrassing hit. No need for it in the sport. Campbell should send a message and suspend a guy 1-3 games EACH and EVERY time someome hits a defenseless player like that.

Next.

Chris Lee sucks (there's no question about that), but his worst moment of the game was the non-call on Lapierre. Nothing else even comes close. He was right there and completely missed it. We always complain (with good reason) about Lee after each game of ours that he refs, but I think Sharks fans have more to complain about this morning than we do.

This is a 2 minutes penalty that wasn't called, please, the thread is more embarassing than the hit

I honestly don't know what the big deal is, Lapierre was good against Boston and last night he made RF b**** f**p and it was darn funny to listen to. On top of that Lapierre just gave him a push into the boards, it was nothing drastic from my POV, didn't even use his full force but it was the other player's fault for the way he absorbed the hit he kinda put himself in danger by ducking into it. That's why it went uncalled even though the referee was 2 feet away and saw what happened.
