Kronwall gets injured

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xONsa4xGAzQ


Hate to see the injury to Kronwall, but clearly, he turned at the last second and put himself in a vulnerable position. If he continued along the boards, it would most likely have been shoulder to shoulder. McLeod was really flying and finished his check. Do we really expect a guy who is travelling at top speed to adjust his line in a split second?

Well, I'll tell you what, talk about getting a little of your own medicine. Love the commentary, let me guess a Colorado feed? Similar hit to Lappy's by a similar player. Should see the same suspension. Let's see if Shanny shows any consistency.

There will be a suspension for sure because:

1/ McLeod is a fourth liner, 2-3 games
2/ Kronwall is a top-four defenseman on one of the original six teams, 2-3 games
3/ There is an injury, possibly concussion, 2-3 games

Not being a Canuck would probably give McLeod a 25% off discount. Therefore, the suspension will be likely around 6 games.

I thought for sure he would get 8-10 for that. He got off lightly

Did you not see my post above? Not being a Canuck would get a 25% off discount... (8 games x 75% = 6 games) :lol: Shanahan was probably in a very good mood (1 game extra bonus).

So I just found the "Add foe" feature which automatically filters out trolls. Quite useful.
Yeah, gotta say I finally get why Topper had his "list" back on the old site. Makes the board a much better place all around, but especially when just wanting to bounce ideas off of people and talk hockey.

Meds, I also have a list here.

You were one of the first on it. I can't read your long winded redundant drivel, so I don't.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Good thing we got rid of that goon Grabner. Now that both he and Lappy are gone, and both suspended I might add, maybe we will be more liked throughout Canada![GDT] Vancouver Canucks @ Philadelphia Flyers | SNET-P | 4:00 PM |

Add this to the list of incidents that should be suspended but won't even be reviewed. I really wish the NHL would balance out the seriousness of the injury and the intent to injure. Could Lupul's elbow be any more out and targeting Henrik's head?

Get real. They are not going to give a suspension out when he never touched the guy. :roll:

But they should suspend him. Everyone can clearly see that it was an "intent to injure" on Lupul's part. Everyone except the NHL...who simply chose to ignore a very dangerous play that could have resulted in a serious injury. The league is a joke!
