What To Do With Sasquatch

I haven’t seen it.  As some of you know, I listened to the game in my garage in a state close to what David Allan Coe would describe as “half-drunk and hollow eyed,” so I won’t say too much more about Pronger’s dirty—but par for the Pronger course—hit on Tomas Holmstrom.

The Diggers are chiming in though, and at least one believes Sasquatch will be press-box bound for Game 4.

There isn’t much question, I think, that Chris Pronger should be suspended a game or two for his reckless hit on Tomas Holmstrom in Tuesday’s 5-0 Detroit victory.

We’ll see what happens, but I suspect the Wings, already up 2-1 in the series, are looking at least at playing Game 4 Thursday without having to worry about Pronger.

I would be shocked if Bettman has the sack to do what St. James suggests.  As I said, I haven’t seen the hit yet…but if there’s any way possible LG can find a way not to actually make the tough decision, he’ll do it.  He’s in a sticky wicket though isn’t he?  If the hit was dirty, as dirty as most are suggesting, someone’s gotta sit.  The easy solution would be to suspend Niedermayer, but his impact on the play was less than Sasquatch’s.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
