As a followup to the Alexander Burrows hit on J.P. Dumont in last night’s 3-1 Vancouver win in Nashville, the NHL has declined to suspend the Canucks forward for his head shot. Quoth Barry Trotz in a piece at the Tennessean this afternoon:
“I trust that the league deals with these hits on a daily basis. I might not agree with their judgment all the time, but I have to trust that the league is there and being neutral. When things are close to the line, we want them dealt with and we felt they were very close to the line on a few.’’
I’m guessing those words were written on a scrap of paper, and upon being uttered, were wadded up and thrown against the nearest wall. And remember, the Canucks visit Nashville again on New Year’s Day. Get your tickets* for this one! Not that any sort of payback would occur… no… not at all…
*use code word “predators” for a discount
