Hit on Veleno!!! Oh wait it's Boston, they seem to always get overlooked!


I could live with this suspension if there would be accountability and consistency in the NHL. But we all know that this league is a joke. Certain players get nothing, others a $5000 fine, while some 2 games... 


Talking about cross checking, Crybaby is a master at it.


They are making assumptions based on intent. Unmitigated bulls**t...


Knew when I saw they were reviewing it we were in for some BS. Would be a lot easier to take if there was any semblence of consistency but anyone who's paying attention knows better than to expect that.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
