No suspension for Wilson.

The kangaroo reigns.

Once again, I called it.

I can't imagine Shenn will be any smarter after that hit.

His explanation is probably one of the more lucid videos Shanny has put together.

Yeah that is a really solid explanation actually.

Laughed at the use of the word "lucid" though. As though Shanny is normally wrapped up in a bedsheet holding a 3/4 empty bottle of gin, rambling like a madman :lol:

Actually, I always imagine the Department of Player Safety discussions consist of Shanny talking to several jars filled with his own urine, but I like your description as well. :D

Steve Moore has launched Foundation for research and prevention of concussions.

Is this a precursor to a out of court settlement with Todd, or a money grab for donations and set himself up with a cushy salary administering the foundation? Or both?

Gary has spoken on Thornton

Clam and Doc, I suggest you bookmark it so I needn't throw it back in your faces at a later date.

All this post proves is that Messr Topper is a kangaroo-loving jackass. :mex:

I think we all knew Bettman would support Shanny’s decision in a flood of kangaroo-flavoured legalese.

Boring and predictable... except for the part where he calls Thornton a bald-faced liar. :lol:

Best part of the document:

“The CBA does not prescribe a formula and the process of assessing discipline for on-ice
conduct is not an exact science... Any two incidents are almost certain to vary in a number of
respects, making exact comparisons impossible.”

Yeah, basically they are throwing out the common-law concept of precedence - unless it suits them. No precedence on which to base any interpretation of the rules or any application of discipline... Mao and Stalin would be proud.

Still, I have to admit I am surprised that Buttman had the nerve to ding a player from one of his crony owners' teams. Thornton was a bit of a low-hanging fruit, though.

That said, I wonder what would have happened had it been Lucic in the middle of it and/or it was game 75 of the season.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Probably has something to do with that looming lawsuit. :wink:

I was merely trying to assist them to avoid future embarrassment. Call my Christmas gift to them.
