Never liked that guy.  I think the Wheel of Injustice gives him time served and three lashes with a wet noodle.

This issue is the NHL just keeps letting this guy off the hook.  Why?

This guy is predatory. He targets players that are definitely tangled up with someone else then blammo! Blindside hit. Never saw him coming. Disgusting.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Nothing new with this guy   Another Raffy Torres. The union needs to grow a pair and deal with this goon appropriately. Do it before threre is a casualty in this league. Be proactive for one instead of reactionary. Rant over.

That’s the second time in what, a week? This guy needs to go. Completely unnecessary hit that had nothing to do with the play.

Nothing to see here, NHL.  Just another Gudas blindsided check to the head of a player NOWHERE near the fuching play.

That’s all his penalty:  5 minute major and a game.

Well, one of two things are likely to happen. One, Gudas, who has three points in 50 games and makes $1.4M a year, will get a big-time four-year contract extention from Philly at $1.8M a year. Or, two, he’ll brutalize someone in the remaining 30+ games this year trying to get that contract and that guy will end up paralyzed for life.

And, quite frankly, I doubt that either Gudas or the Flyers care which of those scenarios play out. Gudas is a goon. He always has been, and he always will be. The Flyers are a haven for goons.They always have been, and they always will be.

The only thing that can stop either of them is the NHL itself. And we all know how that’s going to play out.

It’s one of the reason that this Wings fan wishes we were still in the Western Conference.

Radko….they’re still filming the games.

Lots recently has convinced me that fighting is dying and good thing that it is.

But this guy is the best argument for scary one-dimensional, if necessary, enforcers that I
can think of.

He targets vulnerable opponents for serious head and lower body injuries, again and again and again.

He seems to believe it’s his calling and that his team values this quality in him.

The league barely does anything. Maybe one game. Maybe nothing.

I’m still pissed off, admittedly, with this guy gratuiously popping Franzen in the chin when
the whole league must have known his concussion history.

Fighting probably should continue to decline. But what replaces it? The NHL dart board?

Seriously, what do you do with a guy like Gudas when the league won’t do anything?

You can clearly see Gudas lining this one up, preparing to take out an opponent who can’t see it coming.

This is the exact type of thing that NEEDS to go. Nobody should be sticking up for Gudas at this point outside his family.

Well done, NHL. This guy is going to end someone’s career by the time you decide to discipline him. Ridiculous.
