Actually, with Shelley out, Sestito was very likely to be making the team.

Now Zac Rinaldo moves up the list, with potential to do something even worse given his pre-NHL history, but so far hasn't shown any signs of insanity.

Wow.

That's as dirty and blatant as it gets. 10+ regular season games should come his way for that rubbish.

Brutal hit, worse than Shelley's in my opinion.

I think it will be over 10 games, and it should be.

He came in with speed, and one intent, to drive a defenseless player into the glass from behind.

In baseball terms, this is a hanging curveball right down the heart of the plate.

In hockey terms, it's a soft shot from the red line that anyone not named Dan Cloutier should have no trouble with.

A serious boarding hit can not just give a player a concussion. It could break their back/neck paralyze them. This needs to be taken care of properly and I really hope Shanahan and co. continues to stay consistent with these suspensions.

5 games for intent to injure, 5 games for hitting from behind, 5 games for the vicious charge.

Could throw in another 5 for being a tool if you want. Hell, maybe 5 more for trying to choke Bickell out.

Had nothing to do with having a beef with anyone, it was just a dumb hit.

Personally I thought Shelley's was worse. He took a longer run at Boyce and has a worse track record, Sestito hasn't been suspended. I think he'll get the rest of the pre-season and about 8 games. Ugly hit.

Edit: After watching the other angle, it looks about the same distance...still think Sestito's clean record will get him less games than Shelley.

Shelley may have come from further away because I think he was actually probably intending on making a hockey play and then lost his train of thought and reverted to stupidity.

Sestito came from above the hashmarks with only one thing in mind.

LOL Deveaux, 2 whack hits. I was ok with the response on the first hit, good job for some people trying to stand up, but after that 2nd one and no one did anything? I understand it was a tied game, but having the whole Flyer line jump on him with no back from NYR's line... Whack IMO...

Disgusting hit.
Your point still stands, but Roy wasn't hit. It was just an unfortunate accident.

As a Flyers fan who did not want Sestito on the team, I hope this put's an end to his run at the team.This hit makes Zac Rinaldo look like a ballerina. Speaking of Rinaldo he's a better player than Sestito in every way possible.

Yeah. Clean record because he has played a total of 13 NHL games. I'm sure his minor league track record is pretty strong. Too tired to look it up right now.

Um Rinaldo has been suspended multiple times at the AHL level.

So what?

You act like every team does not have players on it that have gotten boarding penalties before...

Are you ****ing serious? If any other player defends their teammate, you would probably give them props. Since it's Avery, you call him "classless". That's a ****ing joke. Sestito deserved that extra punch. All the hockey fans on this board turned into a bunch of *******.

Steve Downie was fined for suckerpunching Jason Blake a few years ago in the exact same way, but maybe Shanny has a harsher view on these sorts of things.

For once I can actually understand a thread on here calling for a suspension (even though I don't like Deveaux at all). That was text book boarding.

Pretty sweet mini line brawl though! Sestito looked like a mad man skating around without a jersey!

You are mistaken.

The punch was on Simmonds, when he was down on the ice and tied up by the ref. Completely gutless.

You probably applauded Avery's golf swing at Komisarek's legs last year.
