I'm wondering how Bergeron's foot is doing at this point; didn't he take a huge Edler slapshot off the foot in game one?

^in practice.
Thanks for filling in the rest of the information, I heard big toe as well.

That can't be right. Only Canucks players bite other players.

I'd like to see the first option. I have no problem icing Rome over Ballard but when you're considering putting Alberts out over him that's ridiculous. Sure you can say Ballard isn't playing his best because he's barely been playing but there's no way Alberts has been any better in the limited minutes.

Second option wouldn't be bad. Tanev does add an element of mobility and offensive upside that Rome doesn't but I'd still say I'd rather have Rome.

I seems to recall Boston fans saying that Carcillo shouldn't have stuck his fingers in Savard's mouth if he didn't want to get bitten.

Isn't this the exact same situation?

Savard was suspended for biting Darcy Tucker. He has a reputation for biting. Accept it.

Bergeron claimed Burrows bit him and cut him. Don't see the evidence of either and neither did the NHL, hence there being no suspension. Savard has been suspended before for biting because there was evidence. Bruins fans should be enraged that their team would sign a known biter..

Anyone who has looked at the video, and can conclude that there's no evidence of Burrows biting Bergeron is either blind, or willfully ignoring the clear evidence. I'm not going to fight with you over it, because it's so obvious it doesn't need to be argued.

So why didn't the league suspend him? conspiracy?

The larger point is that Bruins fans, egged on by the media, are making a much bigger deal about this than it deserves.

IF Burrows did intentionally bite Bergeron, it was silly, immature, but hardly the end of the world. There's also a certain hypocrisy in hockey, in which shoving your fingers into someone's mouth is considered part of the game, but god forbid you bite those fingers in your mouth. In a world where biting isn't considered adult behavior, how is face washing?

And beyond that, those making broad statements about Burrows and what kind of player he is have no clue. Yeah, he's the kind of guy you love to have on your team and hate to have on someone else's team. But he's hard working, good natured, exuberant, and most of all, humble. Those qualities are more than enough to make up for any little indiscretions he might have on the ice.

saw this video that I hadn't seen before (most of the videos of the dive didn't show the beginning part which puts Sedin in an even less innocent light then he already obviously was), so analysing it further you see a classless crotch hook which you would believe he would expect to draw some reaction which he could follow with the collapsing to the ice move

not sure about your choice of words "adult behavior", the issue is how far things can be taken in an aggressive manner, pushing your glove in someone's face happens continually and it is a normal aggressive move in hockey that is often a precursor to a fight.... biting is never acceptable as it is so extremely dangerous and beyond what any honorable sport allows, even MMA where they are out to fight and knock each other out unconcious would never allow biting, it goes beyond, simple as that
