In all seriousness…. Zetterberg has his head turnbuckled into the glass .....no suspension???

Datsyuk gets the old chicken wing to the jaw….no suspension???

We wear those tinfoil hats for a reason… FU: Gary & Shanny

There is NO DOUBT in my mind that if either of those plays happens to you know who…. the investigation would make the warren commission look like a kangaroo court….which ,by the way, is what we currently have.  sick

I for one am SHOCKED that the comment section of a story about a Hurricanes player being suspended for a suspendable play would turn into a Red Wings Fan Bitch Fest.

One person makes a Red Wing reference and you get a bit agitated, kid?

Relax man. I think we’re all in agreement about this supposed punishment.

This is seriously the type of hit that could completely end a guy’s career… and it only warrants a 2 game suspension? What a bunch of sh*t. Hitting a man while his back is facing you AND he’s on his knees? Give me a f*cking break Shanny.

If you skip over the first three comments, yes.

Other than one avatar, how are the first two comments referencing Red Wing specific bitch fests?

We, again, are in agreement on post three.

Oh, for crying out loud.

Yeah, it was worth a couple games, but…

This is pathetic.

... that’s a bunch of hyperbole.

Westgarth skates in hard, comes in too fast, and knees the guy in the butt.  It was a dangerous, reckless angle to come in on, but he’s about a tenth of a stride from missing him entirely. 

He deserves 2 games, but without ever having been suspended before it’s not like this isolated incident warranted a 5+ game timeout.

Yikes! MRfluffy, Joe Z & DeBehr just went all fetal. Why? What? How? Oh yeah it’s the cunning prowess of hihd!

he’s about a tenth of a stride from missing him entirely. 

“yeah, a tenth of a stride, that sounds like a nice figure that makes my argument sound right. No one will question it because is so ridiculous a statement. They will just think I’m being ‘that wacko troll’.”

“a tenth of a stride.”

Right… that exists…

“Westgarth skates in hard, comes in too fast… It was a dangerous, reckless angle to come in on…”

That almost sounds like an explanation for a longer suspension.

”...knees a guy in the butt…”

True… While he’s crouched over, trying to get up and his face is 2 inches from the boards.
