The only thing this article accomplished was making me want to punch John Doyle through the internet.

Ha ha, I was just thinking the same thing. Any article that references the Canucks as "Canada's team" makes me want to puke.

That was the least offensive thing about that confused pretentious rant.

There's no mention in the article of the Canucks as "Canada's team" only "a Canadian team".

Doyle's bang on about the quality of announcers. They're all pretty much a constant deluge of useless noise.

That article has no clear message. It's pure rambling. We all hate the commercials obviously and I'd guess a lot of people try to watch it on NBC, but they give CBC hits by channel surfing by.

The only thing wrong is the idea they were ever any better.

I went with not sure. I thought it was a bit long, but if this is what the calls are going to be going forward then it's just right. I guess to me it depends what happens next time this happens.

Announcers (especially colour guys) have indeed always been useless, but I think they've grown a lot worse in my lifetime. Exhibit A:

That is my viewpoint as well. If a new context for hits leading to concussions is in place and ignoring a playoff game is worth more, I am all for it. I would penalize more players than currently are, particularly these interference penalties well after the play is over. If it is in the same context, this is a strange amount based purely upon the quality of player doing the hitting and being hit, that I don't like.

Damn, that was nasty. Pulling out the nuclear weapons on me. I retract my statement and was obviously in complete error.

I went unsure.

I liked the suspension and thought it was appropriate in severity but in order for it to stay in that light the NHL needs to use it as a new standard going forward.

If they go back to the spin wheel of justice where similar hits are ignored or give a token single game or two then the suspension will have to be considered to long when weighed against his peers.

That's the other thing, the NHL made it clear that more than .5 of a second and less than a full second is considered late. If this is now the case then these hits that are 3-4 seconds late need to be called everytime. Pretty much it will be taking hitting out of the game and back to the old style where hitting was to separate a guy from the puck.

The biggest issue I see is this whole Mike Murphy being a one series stop gap. I'm not sure that was the best idea. Because going forward Shanahan maybe only gives 2 games for that hit or maybe he gives 6.

Should've either let Campbell finish the year and start fresh next year or Shanahan should've been named the new enforcer at the start of game 1.

Campbell couldn't finish the year because he is precluded from officiating a Bruins involved hockey game.

For what it's worth I read somewhere that Shanahan was involved in the decision or consulted or something.

Ultimately though that is why I went unsure, the real answer will come next year.

How about the concept of a playoff game being worth more? I struggle with that issue myself, in ways I agree, but also there is not the same financial impact upon the player.

I understand the whole Campbell angle, but that's ******** imo. If there was a problem with him doing this job he should've been gone a long time ago.

I wouldn't be suprised on the whole Shanny angle

I struggle with that too, but not because of the money. I struggle with it because it's all hearsay and never have been told by the men in charge whether or not this is true. Financial impact is very minimal during the year anyways, unless you get a 15+ game suspension or you are a 4th line plug whos played only a handful of NHL games.

I voted just right. I also made the mistake of saying that same thing to a few of my friends out here.

Now:

Them to me:

- I would have agreed if they had suspended Charo for the same number of games when he sent Pacioretty off with a concussion on a stretcher...

- or Lucic for sucker punching Burrows !

- That's right! Those Bruins are not ugly and dirty, they are right weasels!

My reply.

- Ah good, I see you got weasel and Burrows close together, perfect fit, LOL.

Back at me

- Traitor!

This series can't end soon enough. 'cmon B's 3 more straight, PLEASE!

Is it just me or was the Chara hit two players jossling and 99.5% of the time he is rubbed out on the glass but he happened to hit the turnbuckle.

4 games was a mercy ruling. Can you image what the Bruin players would have done to Rome if he played at all during the playoffs?

pretty sure the NHL didn't want another possible Bertuzzi/Moore incident.

I think the suspension was to high, he did deserve something, but it wasn't a head shot and he should have been paying attention to rome coming in.

Was bad luck the way he hit the ice

Yeah, and Moore should have paid attetion to Bertuzzi coming at him. Horton had made a pass. You don't make that pass without looking at the guy your passing to. Its Romes job not to hit lat. He could have just as easily used a hip check but he had enough time to change his mind to turn and full on go for the bomb he ended up throwing.
