Video- Radko Gudas Suspension Would Put The Philadelphia Flyers In A Roster Bind

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

And if he is suspended for Saturday night's third-period shoulder-to-the-head hit on Boston rookie center Austin Czarnik, it would leave the Flyers in an unwanted position for Friday's regular-season opener in Los Angeles _ being short an extra player in case of an injury.

The NHL's Department of Player Safety  is expected to rule on Gudas on Sunday, and it would not be surprising if he was suspended.

Then again, the NHL has been so inconsistent in its rulings that nothing can be assumed.

The burly Gudas delivered the hit with 14:13 remaining in regulation of the Bruins' 1-0 overtime win, and he received a two-minute boarding penalty. Unlike Vesey, the 5-foot-9, 167-pound Czarnik did not return to the game.

That won't help Gudas' case.

Afterward, Boston coach Claude Julien criticized the 6-foot, 204-pound Gudas, calling the hit "late."

"Somehow, he seems to have a knack of getting himself in trouble every game," he said.

How many guys is this loser going to hurt before he’s finally had the book thrown at him????

But then again, what do you expect from a league that employs one of its dirtiest players in the Department of Player Safety?

Blind sided and blatantly targeting the head.  He somehow got away with Vesey hit, but if he’s not suspended for this one, it’s time to change the name of the Department of Players Safety.

The solution is to stop employing serial headhunters.
