Cool, hopefully Archibald makes the most of it. He had a pretty decent camp and I like the way he plays.

I like how the refs give one PP to the Canucks with 12 seconds left in OT.

Sometimes, when I'm really bored, I'll go check out CDC.. skim through a couple threads and wonder why they hell I make such poor life decisions.

This just happened.

I won't get that time back.

I'll give you the fact that taking a closer look at the video it's not clear whether the hit was actually late nor was it really an elbow, but definitely it was an illegal check to the head. The type of hit that the league absolutely wants to abolish.
Hey I'm not saying it was a clean hit or that it was a legal hit to the head. But given those circumstances, what could Scott have realistically done to avoid the illegal check to the head? The way I see it, he would have not had to line the hit up at all, but its not illegal to lineup a hit.

The NHL changed the rules to address headshots, like Matt Cooke on Marc Savard, IMO these are the intentional headshots which have no place. Head as principle point of contact doesn't really mean a whole lot; initial point of contact? Intended point of contact? When a guy has half a foot and 60lbs on another player, there's not really a way to deliver a shoulder hit and not make head contact (see Edler on Hertl also). I don't know why I'm defending Scott because I really don't care about him, but to eliminate 'this type of hit', would have required Scott not to line him up in the first place and deliver what should have been a routine and clean hockey hit had Erikkson carried the puck like what Scott probably thought he was going to do.

I don't doubt Scott will get a stiff suspension, but it won't be because of the visciousness of his 'headshot'. Shanaban has a plug he can use to throw the book at to show the world he's got balls. Because based on the precident he's set, oh wait, he's set no precident with his inconsistent suspensions. Just ask yourself if a legit star player makes that same hit, would he get the same suspension Scott would get?

Originally Posted by Ch28 View Post

I just don't understand why its so hard for the NHL to understand.
Posted via RS Mobile
Because the NHL isn't willing to suspend its star players on the same scale as its plugs, because they rely on them so heavily to sell the game. But I agree this is the only way to get guys to think twice before lining up a hit, and thinking whether it could potentially become an accidental headshot. But then you'll have guys leading with their heads (which already happens) similar to how they turn into the boards and cause a hit from behind to draw a penalty/suspension.

LOL leaping headshot. Wow.

John Scott has no history of suspensions, though, I believe so I'm guessing he'll get 8 games. If he gets sent down, though, that means his NHL career is probably over.

Like kyprios was saying, people calling for 10/20 games are out to lunch

He's not a repeat offender and as bad as it looks the precedent is 5 games
