Is Michael Haley still on the Panthers?

I’d imagine he’ll have an appointment with Domi.

If so, I suppose he’d be justified in throwing as many punches
as he likes whether Domi is willing or not, including as Domi is
on his way down. Or he could do the Tie Domi special and keep
punching Max’s head into the ice when he’s already unconscious.

Tie Domi was clearly some sort of clinical sociopath or psychopath.
He enjoyed beating up mismatched and unwilling opponents
and beating them some more when they were already out.

It looks like his son has inherited some of that severe mental illness.

I’m not remotely joking.

The irony is the league doesn’t generally do a damn thing about
this kind of BS, so a tougher player will have to.

“The two were arguing with one another,” said Jonathan Drouin. “I saw a pretty big slash from Ekblad on Max, and Max just took matters into his own hands. It’s also Ekblad’s fault for not protecting himself.”

Meanwhile coach Claude Julien said “these are things that happen in a hockey game.”

Drouin always came off as an entitled arrogant prick who still hasn’t yet backed up his own ego with NHL results. Apparently he is also a complete idiot. Julien has even less of an excuse. No, these are not things that just passively somehow happen. But he’d liked his Bruins playing the same way when he was in Boston.

Add in the preening incompetence of Marc Bergevin and Montreal is quickly emerging as a team to hate.

His father was a cement head, but he usually went with other cement heads. I don’t remember him suckering skilled players, but I could be wrong. I worry about Ekblad because if his concussion history. Hopefully he’s ok.

NHL Player Safety tweet,

Montreal’s Max Domi will have a hearing tomorrow for roughing/ punch to an unsuspecting opponent against Florida’s Aaron Ekblad.

It’s a phone hearing.

CP at TSN,

“I’m sure the league will look at it and we definitely won’t forget about it,” said Luongo, who played the first two periods. “You don’t do that. You respect your opponents and if your opponent doesn’t want to engage in a fight, there’s no reason to drop your glove and punch him square in the face.

“Bit of a gutless play. You don’t do those types of things.”...

“The two were arguing with one another,” said Jonathan Drouin. “I saw a pretty big slash from Ekblad on Max, and Max just took matters into his own hands. It’s also Ekblad’s fault for not protecting himself.”

Just a phone hearing?

Way to take a stand, NHL.  /s

Here is where I would expect the NHL to set a big precedent.  They usually do this in the pre-season, giving a guy 3x the suspension he would get in the regular season. 

So instead the NHL gives Domi a phone hearing, and probably a 2 game suspension.

It’s the arrogance and entitlement that bothers me most though, between Domi, Drouin, and Julien.  How very “Canadien” of them.
