And to repost from yesterday's thread- the news of the day is Raffi Torres has been suspended 25 games. Link

This takes him out for the entire playoffs and the only way it won't carry over to next season is if the Coyotes go to the Cup Final and every single series they're in goes 7 games (since game 1 of the ban was Thursday).

I just can't imagine the Yotes would actually want to keep him around after something like this.

I'm glad my schedule is pretty well cleared up today because I'm going to be parked in front of the tv starting at 3:00 this afternoon.

Let's see, beer is in the fridge along with plenty of food
Wife & one of three kids are at work
One other child sick & sound asleep
Last child enjoys hockey & is looking forward to today also

Yep, life is good. Let's play some hockey.

When I first heard about this, I thought it was excessive. While not a legal hit, it didn't rank anywhere near the top of the charts on the list of dirty hits in NHL history.

After watching the video and learning that this is the 6th time he's been disciplined for hits to the head, 25 games seems about right and might even be on the low side.
 
2012-04-21 01:21:17 PM
25 is right for the amount of times he should have been suspended.. however it's kind of ridiculous how the hit on daniel sedin only netted keith 5 games, the hit on Alfie only 4 or 5? It's easy to throw the book at goons I guess
 
2012-04-21 01:30:19 PM
whoever wins today in the boston/washington game will win the series tomorrow
guaranteed

hope its the caps!

Those players were first time offenders, IIRC. This is Torres, what, 7th suspension for taking out people with hits to the head?

don't give me that first time offenders shiat, keith has a few hits that were suspendeble and yet doesn't get suspended or gets a few games

the suspension was 25 games
the coyotes could play a maximum of 24 more games this postseason
raffi torres has already sat out 1 game

coincidence? probably

No, not coincidence. They said "Torres, you're done for these playoffs" and that was it. I'm not going to sit here and say "we're going all the way to the Final" because I don't think that so this will carry over to next season (at least the preseason if you go by what Shanny said).

Got some friends coming over for some burgers (homemade garlic and sweet onion burgers and bacon and Smoked Gouda burgers), and then the first Bocce Ball game of the season after the game.

See you fine folks later...

Whole thing, actually. Rules are that suspensions don't include exhibitions, but any player under suspension is ineligible to play in exhibitions.

But we also don't know Hossa's injuries, which is something I assume the Hawks told Shanny. If it's more than a minor concussion -- major concussion, broken jaw, sprained neck, etc. -- I'm sure that also played a factor.

I read somewhere that Hossa has a concussion and severe whiplash.

It's not REALLY a question, but I still feel bad, lol.

I agree. I'm not a fan of either team but have been enjoying this series a lot. I know a lot of people hate the Devils (sorry, know you're a fan), and I know people hate Florida because they're in Florida... but I'm looking forward to the rest of this series.
