I'm guessing Lowry gets a 5 game bonus for taking out Kaleta.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Pretty much the same thing w/ Raymond in the finals. If ever there was a case for a stretcher, I think a broken back might have been the one.

Seriously. It's just worse w/ all these ex-thugs running the show. It's almost like the owners & Bettman have washed their hands of it & hired a bunch of clowns who will make a mockery of it...but then the players have no one to blame but themselves. "It's *your* peers, you deal w/ it."

Perhaps hiring a few ex-Lady Byng winners might bring some balance to this shit show.

Nothing for Kesler, not even a phone call or fine.

Lucky for him, he's no longer a Canuck - he would have gotten min 3-5 games for that hit if he were still wearing the Orca.

Kesler's a guy I'd like to see taken out with a good, clean but very hard hockey hit. An extended visit to the quiet room at the behest of Edler is pretty much my dream for this season.

Or if Kesler was still a Canuck and he delivered a hit like that....

Actually, according to Kesler, Dorsett did hit him. In his after game interview he was asked about the play, head shot etc. his reply was something to the effect that all he knows was that he was going for the puck when Dorsett hit him. It was a hockey play, Kesler playing the puck and Dorsett running him. He continued that hockey is a rough sport and sometimes when you throw a check, like Dorsett did, you get hurt. He hopes Dorsett is ok.

That pissed me off.
The only HW the Canucks need

Too bad the Canucks have no balls and will not react at all.
