what a terrible penalty/suspension/league

I mean, itís a penalty. I think itís ridiculous because they ignore similar interference calls like this for all games all the time. Itís a huge issue. If Forseberg doesnít hit the head, thereís no suspension.

I guess the head part should mean 1-3 games, for me itís more that the NHL is just horrendously inconsistent on calls like this.

...Well yes, if the hit was safe but just late the Department of Player Safety probably would not have suspended him.

The hit was late (and thus illegal), there was head contact and Vesey was injured. Why is that suspension "terrible"?

Does a team even turn a profit at $10 a head? Like without somehow selling them some $20 beers?

The marginal cost of one extra person in the arena is probably pretty low, so in the short run it's probably than the seat being vacant.

The head shot rule is nebulous, and vesey sold it by coming back out and yelling whilst spitting out blood, and I thought that was pathetic. Also, I do what I can to provoke RAS because itís always the same three posters who get ruffled.

I got to the last Dayton Bombers game (2009) I would get to go to midway through the 1st period because my class ended at 7pm. I walked up to one of the doors (the ticket windows had closed by that point) to get somebody's attention to buy a ticket and the guy, who was wearing a suit and tie holding a walkie talkie (assumed to be game ops), just waved me in. They didn't bother selling a ticket, just saying "Yeah, go grab a seat".

It would have been a legal hit if Staal did not stop and was planning to phase through the boards, his braking is what caused his head to lower and take the contact.

Emelin cannot reasonably be expected to know Staal could not phase through solid objects so he is not at fault.

What's the illegal play? He didn't leave his feet, didn't go high, didn't use an elbow or knee. Staal put himself in a really bad spot by trying to back out of the hit, there's a reason players are taught to get up against the boards and take hits with the shoulder.

I'd like Nash on the Capitals because they are in dire need of depth scoring and defensive forwards/PKers. However I don't really think they have the assets to part with to make a deal make sense from NYR's point of view.

Same thing with McDonagh.
