Hope Eager gets suspended. He really hasn’t been a good player here, especially tonight.

At least someone from the team showed some kind of emotion. Also, pretty sure Army said something smart to Eager after he missed his attempt to hit, which set him off.

Eager’s a punk.  Always has been.  Just ask Gary Roberts.

He is. Here in Atlanta, people thought Eager would be the one who would replace Boulton. Boulton is proving his worth, while Eager is proving why he should be waived.

Eager will be suspended multiple games for this. Gutless.

Is that a promise? Remember, Colie has that Wheel Of Justice of his.

This is the most gutless play I’ve seen since the Bertuzzi incident.

Eager misses a blindside head-hit (which, itself, is suspendable), then skates over and sucker-punches Armstrong a la Tie Domi on Ulf Samuelsson. Domi got 8 games, iirc. Eager deserves significantly more.

Armstrong, as an unsympathetic victim, has nothing on the dirtometer vs. Ulf Samuelsson. Domi got 8. Eager should get more.

I wonder if “Collie” thinks either Eager or Armstrong are “good guys.” That seems to influence supplemental discipline.

@StevieSteve.Not a real good example.Ulf was the king of dirty players and deserved far more than that Domi sucker punch.

Of course he did. That still didn’t stop Burke for suspending Domi 8 games.
