Yeah, it's karma for Marchand for sure but Neal is not known for cheap shots like that. It could go either way at the discipline meeting for Neal but if intent and outcome is the measure then what Thornton did was horrendous....it was premeditated on a helpless player. The guy is a thug in every shape and form.

I nearly Stood up from my couch and gave Neal a standing ovation for the knee. I don't think there is a soul out there feeling sorry for that weasel Marchand

Neal did it on purpose.

Thorton should be gone for 20 but because he plays for Boston I say 2 games at most.

Can't wait for Shanahan to toss Boston an underhand on this one.

Just saw another angle w/ Thornton intentionally positioning his leg behind Orpik so that he would fall. If thats not assault I don't know what is.

Agree Neal did it on purpose but is getting the "phone call " from Shanahan so will get 5 or less

Thornton will get over 5 ( my guess 10 games or more )

I love tough hockey but both those guys should get 20.. premeditated chckenshit plays with intent to injure

Marchand reaps what he sows.

Here's another question...was Thornton on the ice during the play or did he come off the bench after the whistle? Sure looked like he did and came right across the ice directly after Orpik. Not sure how that will play out. A coach can't be throwing out a goon during a melee under the guise of a "line change".

Lets try to not to make that comparison again, ok? The only thing those 2 have in common is they can fight and both played for the Bruins.

Neal will get 2 games.

But Shanny needs to lay down the law on this one and suspend Thornton for like 20 games, the NHL cannot be having such ruthlessness accepted.

That f---ing weasel Marchand should be suspended for getting his head in the way of Neal's knee.

Lets see if Shanny and Buttman do the right thing and suspend Thorton for at least 20 games. I doubt it.

No question the NHL will find a justification for Thornton and give him 3 to 5 games.

Watching the between periods analysis, so called, of the whole thing by the Bruins 'pravda' commentators was sickening. There is not a more holier than thou organization than this bunch, from Jack 'compare matt cooke to a kennedy assassin' Edwards to Claude 'everyone else is stupid but us' Julien. One Bruins mouthpiece could only go as far as to say Thornton has to "hold back there"...that's it. Most of the commentary was about if Orpik had fought Thornton earlier none of this would have happened. Thornton should get 20 minimum, but they get away with everything, so I expect it'll be 10. It has to be at least 10 or even people I know who are Bruins fans, many of them, would admit it's a scam.

If a Penguin had done to a Bruin what Thornton did to Orpik that would be screaming and wailing throughout Bruin country. They're soft pedalling as much as they can...hope Orpik is okay, about it.

Thornton should get 20+. That was gross. Thornton came from behind and slew footed Orpik, who had no idea it was coming. Reminded me of Bertuzzi/Moore. Clearly Orpik had no interest in going toe to toe with the goon. Who could blame him? Why is it that some think guys like Orpik have some sort of obligation to fight after a clean hit the other team is upset about?

Honestly though, I couldn't be happier this bad karma is befalling the Bruins. Fuck 'em.

I find it more sickening how the Bruins are the 2nd favorite hockey team after the Leafs of the CBC's HNIC crew. The bruins are the dirtiest team in the nhl, and the refs and media seemingly always give them the benefit of a doubt every time.

Would you ever see Ron MacLean spend an entire segment disgracing a Bruin the way he did with Burrows?

Other than the stretcher, this last incident reminds me of Emery's attack on Holtby.

How many games did Emery get?

^ It's gross, your right RD.

IMO Julien should be vilified for putting Thornton on the ice. He knew what he was doing.
