If he’s not sitting out at least one game, we know the fix is in.

Just stupid by Weber.  It’s bad enough to do that any time, but at the end of a game you are winning?  How stupid can you be?

Weber will get a fine and nothing else.  Precedent, rules, and sheer common sense say games, but a fine and only a fine it will be.

And people wonder why Wings fans scream “Conspiracy!”?  Now imagine Franzen or Kronwall doing this to Radulov.  Yeah, you can bet that’d be 3 or 4 games…  the double-standard is completely sickening.  It’s no accident Bettman was in NAS last night and that the two least-penalized teams in the league suddenly has a congo line to the box,,,,  nor is it an accident that a Wings can’t go hit a Pred while he even has the puck, but that a Pred can high-stick Franzen in the face and get away with it…

Dumb move by Weber. I expect nothing to come of this either except a fine at most, though he should be suspended

Hasn’t Weber already been suspended once?

Wonder if how the Wings think of him now as a free agent to pursue?

to me, weber should at a minimum be out the series, and i would have no problems at all if he was suspended for the entire playoffs.  There are accidental headshots, intended headshots, and then there is taking a guys head and placing it in both of your hands, and ramming it into the boards headshots.

Is there is any other situation where you are intending to injure someone’s head that could possibly be worse than this?  If the NHL is actually trying to keep its players safe from stupidity, then the punishments better start fitting the crime.

One last point.  If Weber gets away with anything other than a series suspension, can you imagine the message it sends to the league right now?  Hey, Rinaldo… you skilless bum… next time you are in a scrum along the boards, just go ahead and take Crosbys head into both of your hands and…

Weber should be gone for the series, no question. He was definitely aware of what he was doing.

Wow…even Pens fans are with us.

Being sarcastic, of course, but…I just…there’s no way the league should let that slide…especially with Bettman in the house at the time and all the friggin’ chintzy penalties that were being called…
