Feel like it should have been 2 with the missed call but, maybe they figured that San Jose won so no harm no foul? Either way... Schenn?

Deserved. Gotta bring up Schenn now. Even if we lose Game 2 as a result of the suspension it's not the end of the world. Still games past that.

I think it is a must. He doesn't even lose a year if he gets called up for that one game. We don't have the depth to replace both Kopitar and Stoll without a call-up. Pressure be damned, the kid needs to play.

They could have given Stoll more, but I'll take it.

Bring him up. Play him. If he makes a considerable difference, keep him up. If he doesn't, send him down and we'll have Stoll for the LA games.

Do it, Dean.
REALLY hard to argue with this.

BS.

If the league felt he targeted the head and it was dirty he should have gotten more.

If the league felt it was a an unfortunate hockey play he should have gotten zero.

I hate this constant middle of the road crap. If they want head-checking out than grow some balls when making a suspension. 1 game is not a deterrent.

It should have been 2-4 games, or 0 games. 1 game is a chicken**** suspension that appeases everyone except for the players who get hit in the head.

I agree with this. I understand the league suspending Stoll but Matt Cooke just got suspended for something similar to what Demers did. That was a horse **** play and I can't believe there was no call on the ice for that.

The NHL's system of discipline is really equitable.

How is losing a top defenseman for 1st round or the whole playoffs no harm...

I agree completely with this.

I also agree with this. If Smyth gets injured on that it's just as bad as what Stoll did. Stoll ~3 games, Demers 1-2

When your the NHL front office? Who knows. I disagree, I think it definitely should have been more than 1 game. Just trying to figure out what was going through their heads when they decided on 1 game.

Dear NHL:

I'm happy you made a good call here. Now that you've shown that Colin Campbell goes to bed after 7:30, can we please open the vault of questionable hits on Kings players that you had previously chosen to ignore? There's even one in this very same game. Thank you.

First of all, I have some new found respect for Kings fans.

That's what it seems like to me as well, that they're just trying to appease both sides. I think there should be a mandatory press statement/release from the Disciplinary Committee on every suspension. Right now their inconsistency is making the league appear as a joke, your obviously right when you say "1 game is not a deterrent"

Here's an admittedly unpopular post: what are the odds that White miraculously feels better tomorrow and plays? With the gamesmanship in the NHL nothing would surprise me any more. Don't take this to mean I don't think the hit was bad or the suspension undeserved.

He wasn't on the ice today. It's looking pretty bleak.

What's the theory here? White fakes the injury and forces San Jose to play the remainder of game 1 with 5 defensemen on the hope that Stoll gets suspended for an edge in game 2?

Doesn't seem very likely to me.

That is perfectly said.

I continue to be impressed with how reasonable and fair Kings fans are. Really wish we weren't playing you, would like you guys to do well.

Not at all. But it's possible that he might feel better the next day than he thought he might, for sure. And if the Sharks felt the Kings might lose their best face-off man to suspension, they certainly would not put White on the ice today pending the decision.

Look, I'm bored, and conspiracy theories are fun. Don't read too much into it....

Lemme add some of these....

While it always is a possibility of miraculous recovery, I don't think the Sharks will risk placing him in the game if the team keeps things under control. The Sharks have been very cautious with injuries, even to a point of annoyance to some fans.

that would be one hell of an acting job on White's part. I doubt you'll see him for at least a few games. There is no question he received a concussion. To what degree is a separate issue.

On a side note, I can't believe Dan Hamhuis is playing in the playoffs. Did he not have 2 concussions this year the last one happening about a month ago?

Okay, this is not unexpected. Does anyone think the NHL should be looking at the Demers hit as well?

Sure, as long as the league is consistent. But I wonder if that's too much to ask for sometimes.
