Woulda been nice to see Scott connect on a couple on Kessel, but you can't have it all.

Been a while since I saw a donnybrook like that. Brought a big 'ole smile to my face.


Oh please. The league comes harder on the Leafs than most teams.

Kessel should get 2x2 for slashing, 2 for roughing, 5 for fighting, and at least a game or 2 for the spear work on a player who was tied up by an opponent and the official.

Chances are he gets a warning.



I wonder if any network numbers people are salivating for the first regular season meeting between these two teams......


Get ready for it. Already, the Toronto Sports Network is spinning it that Scott broke 'The Code' by going after Kessel in the first place. It would be hilarious if it wasn't an embarrasingly transparent piece of homerism by the media arm of MLSE.

So let's get this straight: Toronto's big knuckle-dragger pounds out a smaller forward for Buffalo, and that's 'playoff truculence', gonna get them far in the playoffs; but when Buffalo returns the favour with Scott going after Kessel, that's 'breaking the code' and justifies Kessel defending his 'honour' by swinging two-handers and spears at Scott while he's engaged with someone else, and Clarkson did the right thing.

How anybody wonders why so many hockey fans hate Toronto, their teams, the media they control, and their fans is beyond me.

Care to cite any cases to support your one-liner argument??? Otherwise, please excuse the collective eye-roll around here.

Scott goes after Kessel? What a moron. I don't blame Kessel for using his stick...he's not a fighter and he has to defend himself against the goon who is way bigger.

Really too bad Clarkson jumped off the bench...not a smart move and it'll cost him 10 games.

It is unfair to make these comments. We have no idea what Kessel said to Scott. I highly doubt a goon like Scott will pick on a midget like Kessel for no reasons. Second, Kessel was such a pussy when he repeatedly chopping Scott while he was tackled by other Leafs. If anything, I wish Scott just busted Kessel's remaining nut. :mrgreen:

Or perhaps he's a genius?

... gets two Leaves called on the carpet by pretending to go after Kessel! :thumbs:

"not a fighter"?? :crazy:

Ummm he had no problem going with 20-lbs-smaller-than-himself Flynn right after that.

If Kessel didn't want to fight Scott he should have kept his yap shut and skated away/turtled.

There is NO EXCUSE for the slashes + spear

(especially the two while Scott was being held back).

Face it pal, Princess Phil is a coward. Image

Clarkson also cost his team cap space as they have to bring in a replacement, leaving even less for Franson.

I think Kessel was just trying to even the playing field as much as possible.

Y'know remove both testicles from Scott and hope the levels of testosterone even out.

How about the Leafs getting stripped of a draft pick over a 50k payment to a Swedish club over Grogren? Or how about the massive fine over a bet Ron Wilson had with his own players when Jerome Iginla admited doing the same thing to the media and the Flames got squat.Or how about Mark Bell getting a 10 game suspension or a personal issue he had with police when everyone said he'd get nothing because he was a Leaf.

While you guys think the Leafs get favours, they clearly don't. Most of Betteman expansion mistakes get the favours. They arren't losing money or draft picks over things like that. The Leafs will never be hurt over suspensions or fines, so they will get hit as hard as everyone.

And I do thin k there is a good chance Kessel gets 1 or 2 games out of this.

At this point it's Franson that's screwing himself. This isn't a good move for his career.

You really see that happening? I don't.

No teams do offer sheets and barely any have the money.
