Video- HNIC Panel Discusses The Dylan Larkin Suspension

The one thing the HNIC panel didn't bring up was the injury Larkin suffered from the Jamie Benn cross-check.

I think most of us agree that Larkin should have been punished for his punch. Some say fine, some say 1 game suspension. Whatever.

But if the league is going to say that they will crack down on cross checking, then I think they owe the Wings an explanation on the Palat and Joseph hits and why those aren’t worth more than 2 mins each.

Hopefully Yzerman got one.

Not sure how they don’t see Joseph’s hit as dirty, and they didn’t even mention that Larks is coming back from a neck injury. What garbage, and I normally love SN.

Tried to watch, but the constant camera movement induced nausea.

Hope this new “hip” production brings HNIC lots of millennial viewers.

Do millennials even watch TV ?  hmmm

As they say in my industry, “Somebody got to borrow their uncle’s camera boom!”

In a press release last week, Sportsnet said they were going to give us a 360 degree view, I guess they did.

Normally always click on HNIC
but haven’t found Bieksa living up to the hype.
It’s mostly just kinda of: these things happen in the game.
I don’t know who the other younger panelist is but she reminds me
of a high school debater who has memorized every talking point
they want to get out and you can see the frustration and impatience
on their face when they don’t go first or get ten mins uninterrupted or
a full five min rebuttal when someone disagrees.

The 360 deal is silly. They add all of that and forget the context of Larkin
spending 8 weeks in a cervical collar according to Blashill.
They never mention that came from a totally gratuitous cross check the league totally ignored? What’s the point of talking about this semi-in-depth and not mentioning that? Is it because it’s too important to get four talking heads each time to say their piece, that no one has time to set the context?
