The long painful season must be getting to you, I would have expected nothing less from Jmac than a fully indexed wall post (spoilered of course) with reference notes and points of interest bolded for easy browsing

The league is a damn joke when it comes to determining the amount of punishment certain players, the star players, receive for dangerous hits or stick work.

No consistency at all!

You might as well let that monkey that TSN used in the playoffs for playoff predictions determine the amount of games for suspension. Give that monkey a wheel to spin!

I think 2 games was fair for the Virtanen hit. Rough month for Polak, first he got beat by Darnell Nurse and only a few weeks later took that hit from Virtanen.

I hope Keith gets the book thrown at him. Will the NHL actually hand out some serious discipline to a superstar on the NHL's golden child right before playoffs? I wouldn't count on it.

I think the 5min penalty and the game was enough... Yes it was late but still shoulder to shoulder and Virtanen hasn't been in shit before which should of factored in. With that being it helps with Tank Nation so I'm more then ok with the two games he received.

Watch Canucks draft Chychurn because he will say “He (Laine) likes to score. We don’t know if that’s going to translate to the NHL or not,”

We're finally at a point where we might be able to acquire elite franchise building blocks and assemble future potential but that might not even happen because the people in charge of assembling the team and managing assets are a bunch of incompetent bumbling morons.

That fucking Shinkaruk trade was goddammed dumb as bricks no matter what angle you look at it. What fucking grinds my gears is the fact that he couldn't get a dman so he settles on a fucking plug that can't even win fucking faceoffs to boot. Holy fucking stupid. A blood vessel fucking erupts somewhere in my body every time someone brings up a fucking decision that the dumb as shit management makes.

Move over Edmonton, we might just have assembled a management group even fucking dumber than yours.

Fucking hell, this franchise can't catch a goddamned break.

This could've changed over the past few weeks because our management changes their minds on a daily basis it seems, but ...

So maybe McCann for Jankowski ... Or possibly Tanev ...

Note that Dorsett and Sutter were called foundation pieces earlier this season, now not explicitly mentioned as part of Benning's core group moving forward.

We can probably get Yakupov for McCann and Tanev

but Benning will say Yakupov - “He likes to score. We don’t know if that’s going to translate to the NHL or not,”

I have to disagree. Yes, short term its good for the tank but think long term too. Going forward, Virtanen is going to be considered a repeat offender because of this "soft" suspension.

NHL did the right thing. I know I didn't say so at first. But after seeing that hit a few times. He blindsided Polak. A hard hit lime the above is fine, but Jake pretty much decided to throw the hit regardless. Polak may have been okay, but the league wants to crackdown on dangerous late blindside hits as history showed us in this past that it never really ends well for the player throwing the bit nor the guy that receives the hit
