Granted - there are a few douchebags/losers in that thread, but hey, it's Calgary.


Read a little more in that thread Farthand. The further it goes the retards bob their heads up and down and agree with the suspension. That's one reason besides the obvious one that this is not a suspendable hit. If the mongoloids say red then it is most definitely blue. What a bullshit league the NHL is. I suppose Gutless Gillis will say nothing.

What can Gillis do? If he makes a comment, he will be fined and the Canucks will be further under the microscope. It all started with Burrows' comments... The NHL has a very different agenda for the Canucks.

If your helmet pops off during the course of play, and it's not broken in half or the strap ripped-off, you should be fined. Why should the league be policing head-shots while some of the players don't seem care about their heads in the first place? I can see this being the scenario that creates the first on-ice death: big-hit, helmet flies off, player's head slams into a goal post.

He can grow a set of testicles and say the call is a fucking joke. Who gives a shit about the fine ? If Aquilini won't scratch the check, Eye Bags makes good coin, he can afford it.

I'm not saying to cry the league is picking on us. I'm saying he should call the league for its pure stupidity. Playing the poor me card is not an option and makes him look like a bitch. Call Shanahan out for his incompetence and inconsistency.

Circle me as someone that would be 100% for that for exactly your reasons.

My only concern in doing so however, would be the fact that the refs might be instructed to be even harsher with the Canucks from higher ups.

The refs treatment towards Vancouver last year was a direct result of the Canucks constantly chirping the refs from previous years in playoffs (justified chirping mind you).

If Gillis were to do something like these, he'd have to go the whole 9 yards..........and demand that despite the concerns he's bringing up, that the Canucks be given equal treatment from the refs in playoffs (not those exact words, but something to that effect).

This is laughable.

Hertl's head got hit because he jams out from taking a hit. Edler didn't leave his feet or lunge at all towards the head. The NHL doesn't have the guts to be fair and consistent.

Only reason this is a suspension is because Hertl is leading the lead in goals, scored 4 the other night and is the flavour of the week.

Kessel got 3 exhibition games for all those vicious slashes to Scott, one while he was tangled up w/ another player.

This non-hockey vicious highstick landed Keith ONE game!
http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=257057

To say nothing of the joke suspension Keith got for his *intentional* elbow to Daniel's head.

Shanahan admits Hertl moves just before the point of contact w/ Edler but dismisses it (even though it happens in a split second) and here he lets Malone off w/ no suspension because of the movement prior to the hit.
No suspension: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=125990

Ferrence has a history of making headshots look innocent and unintentional.
Evidence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MncqPY2VuBs

NO suspension for that slick shot to Halpern's head

He got ONE game for this beaut:
http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=244597

NO suspension for this headshot by Nolan:
http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/?id=444642

The NHL front office bias against the Canucks continues in addition to their favouritism to certain teams/players and complete lack of objectivity and consistency.

Just another in a long line of total turn offs...makes it easier & easier to not turn on the TV or shell out for tickets.

If MG were to complain to the NHL about reffing/inconsistent suspension calls compared to other similar plays across the league etc, it's best done behind the scenes in an "respectful" manner. ;)


As an aside look at this linesmen swearing back at Torts. :o

Any word on whether the Canucks or Edler are going to appeal this completely BS suspension?

I would hope so.

I'm not going to get too worked up about the suspension. I don't know what Edler could have done any differently there... it is still a contact sport, isn't it? Is he supposed to let Hertl just blow by him?

If that was three games than Duncan Keith should have gotten 20, not 5.

Kronwall?

I don't think we have a roster spot to call anyone up either so 3 games with Alberts.

Lever took his ball and left, and I'm pretty much half way there myself.


We've lost a few good men ever since Canuck-hatred peaked in 2011. :(

It can be quite maddening!

Lever smiled, gave the league the finger, turned and walked into the sea.

(classy guy that Lever)

Chris went into suicide-terrorist mode and blew up a fucking canuck message board real good.

THINKER moved to England and gave himself completely over to Manchester United.

GM became a Tibetan monk.

Spidey went batshit crr… oh wait… nevermind, Spidey was always that way…

Bikerdude pulled out all his hair and then joined the enemy.

Clearly, quite a few other longtimers are on the brink.

... but the Great Great Strangelove keeps bob bob bobbin along. :mrgreen:

(using a non-sexual definition of bobbing here) :evil:

It's 2:49 a.m. on an early Saturday morning.......and I'm posting here.

I'm still here Doc......I'm still here. :)

I can dislike the league and dislike everything about the sport right now all I want, and I can even choose to wear a Seahawks jersey over a Canucks jersey these days, but I'll keep cheering this team even if one foot is clearly in the grave now.

Once......just once...,.,I want to see the Canucks win the cup.

That's what drives me........to post here at 2:52 a.m.
