Max Domi Meant No Harm

from Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette,

“I didn’t mean to hurt him.”

Those words are spoken by just about every NHL player who is suspended for injuring an opponent and the Canadiens’ Max Domi is no exception.

“It’s a real tough situation, obviously, for everyone involved,” Domi said after practice Friday in Brossard about being suspended by the NHL for five pre-season games after sucker-punching Florida defenceman Aaron Ekblad in the face during a 5-2 loss to the Panthers Wednesday night at the Bell Centre. “I feel bad about it. It’s not the way I wanted to handle that. It’s an emotional game. Obviously, I’m an emotional player. I’ve known Aaron for a long time. Grew up playing against each other. We always play hard, always battle, whether it was in minor hockey, junior, the national level and now the NHL, too. By no means did I want to hurt him.”

There it is.

Of course Domi wanted to hurt Ekblad … that’s the idea behind punching someone in the face. Maybe he wasn’t planning to break the defenceman’s nose and leave him on the ice in a pool of blood, but that’s what happened.

Roberto Luongo Thinking Stanley Cup

from Kevin Woodley at NHL.com,

"The only career number I look at is [Stanley] Cups, right?" Luongo told NHL.com at the Panthers practice facility this week. "That's the only one I really want."

Luongo sees that possibility in a talented Panthers team that finished last season strong, going 25-8-2 over the its final 35 games to finish with 96 points, one point short of a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Florida, which tied the Winnipeg Jets for the most wins in the NHL over that stretch, since traded for forward Mike Hoffman, who had 56 points (22 goals, 34 assists) for the Ottawa Senators last season and scored at least 22 goals in four straight seasons.

"The way we finished, adding Hoffman, there are a lot of things to be excited about," Luongo said. "I just wish I was five to 10 years younger so I could be here for a while with them, that's the part that is a little bit scary for me. I feel like we are right there and hopefully it will happen in the next couple of years but if it's five or six years down the road, then I don't think I'll be around for that and that's scary."

Evening Line- Pekka Jalonen

“My opinion is that NHL is stupid and greedy. NHL has a great chance to promote the game and asking money for practice makes people angry. Tickets for the games are expensive so practices should be free.”

-Finnish journalist Pekka Jalonen on the NHL charging to watch the Winnipeg Jets and Florica Panthers practice while in Finland.  Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun has more.

Below, the press release on this topic the NHL sent out earlier today.
