Red Wings should offer trade for Komarov since they cannot score much more than goals allowed overall this season they might as well toughen up.
Matter of fact they are negative in goals/goals allowed stat this season anyway.
Can’t get Stamkos in trade then get a hammer for us Ken Holland.

Yeah that’s really charming…an elbow to the jaw of a player just back from a concussion and was getting back up to his feet. Blindside elbow to jaw.

I don’t want that kind of “hammer” on my team, thanks.

Komarov should get ten games.

I don’t care about his personal history. There was absolutely nothing even slightly
accidental or incidental about that play.

Either the NHL is serious about getting rid of these completely gratuitous brain injury causing cheap shots that are not hockey plays, are they aren’t.

Afraid we already know the answer.

I’m with you, lefty, but I’m thinking more that he should be gone for the rest of the season. That was blatant intent to injure, but like the Gudas hits we saw recently go unpunished, this one too will go unpunished.

Except Gudas never extended anything out to hit, he stayed compact and delivered clean hits, albeit late in the one instance. This, however, is the type of thing that the NHL has been trying to get out, the extension of an arm/elbow into someone’s jaw. My guess is 3 games unless he has a prior offense.
