What surprises me the most about Kesler's stat line is the -3. How is he a -3 on what appears to be one of the strongest 2-3 teams in the west?

Kesler 2 even-strength points in 11 games.

Bonino with 8 ES points in 10 games.

Also Kes probably plays every situation and maybe even first or at the very least, second unit PK

If you're always going up against the other teams top units you'll probably be getting scored on.

he will get 2 games for the hit.. To be honest it was a shot to the head and he should get a couple games for it.

2 games is total bullshit
even 1 is stupid imo

he was bracing for a shoulder to shoulder contact, at the speed he's going, how's he supposed to know that Emelin was gonna wobble and his head will go down a bit

but then again since when did these things ever go our way


call on the ice was the right one, no penalty, no suspension.


every time i look at it...it's Emelin's fault for being such a nub and going off balance, he pretty much turned so that his head was the principle point of contact.

Well, Kerry Fraser thinks there were two picks that were missed while we were on the power play in OT: Vrbata on Plekanac, and Bieksa on Malhotra...

Alexandre Burrows Hit on Alexei Emelin, Bonino Scores (10/30/14) - YouTube
IMO, Emelin lost balance but recovered, but stayed in a low position with his knees bent.
Burrows, maybe expecting him to stand up, rather than stay low, ended hitting him in the head.

The problem I see here is that Emelin was never standing up-right in the first place,
so his "sudden" change of position wasn't him lowering his head into the hit.
Regardless if Emelin turned, Burrows looked like he was coming in for a high hit when Emelin was already in a low position.

I really think it's one of those borderline plays that could have been deemed suspend-able or not.

Vrbata on Plekanec wasn't a pick. Plekanec wasn't even moving.

Emilin's head snap was a bit exaggerated imo

reminds me of another russian playing for the habs to oversell injury

ok... hit was late.. agreed
elevated shoulders..fine
but 3 games is harsh for a very hard sell by emilin. I mean, seeing his arms go up like that reminds me of...

the explanation of the situation isn't any better.


who's the dumb fuck reading it out? it just gets me pissed when even the guy reading it out seems biased as fuck.
there was clearly a hidden agenda in this suspension.

ya'll know he was gonna get at least a 2-game, don't see why your complaining, its not van-hate. it is pretty obvious its illegal.

I don't know how many people here play hockey, but saying it was embellished is a little over the top. If you could take a shot with a shoulder, while your off balance, to the head, and not topple over like a doll, you are unnatural.

John Moore got two games for this. Just throwin it out there.
Given, he got a penalty on the play...but the head was the point of contact the whole way.
Burrows hit was open to interpretation.

Can fines actually be factored in as past history?


I guess they should also be broken down whether they were on-ice or off-ice fines.

But then again, if Weber only got fined for smashing Zetterberg's head into the glass,
maybe some fines should be equivalent to suspensions...
