um wtf was duncan keith thinking of when he elbowed daniel sedin like that?

suspend him for the rest of the season plus the first round

though shanny will likely just give him 5 games

according to the comments sedin hit keith up high 30 seconds earlier

nhl playoffs have all the drama BC, at least watch that!

not all of this is playoffs but its a great video showcasing hockey

Sorry, but it seems that your great NHL playoff video is BLOCKED IN CANADA! That's funny, eh!

BTW, the NFL started handing down serious punishment for bounty hunting by the Saints, starting with a ONE YEAR suspension of the head coach.

Todd Bertuzzi didn't get life.

That is an entirely different situation. Moore was targeting the captain Markus Naslund and gave him a concussion. Moore was a head hunter. Bertuzzi tried fighting Moore as did other players but he wouldn't go. Bertuzzi lost control and suckered Moore and then pushed his face into the ice.

Moore got exactly what he deserved. You don't purposely take out the other teams heart and soul on purpose and then back down when the piper comes calling.

Meanwhile the NFL coach awarded players who took out ANYBODY. no personal grudges necessary. nobody would have to have been done wrong for the player to be taken out.

Bertuzzi should be in prison. At least the civil suit will proceed this year. Sue his ass off and the coaches too.

Of course not, especially in a league that sanctions violence and blood sport.

This does not help your position at all. The NFL does not approve of any "piper come calling".

its hard to see what goes on when everyone is all in a pile but they do cleat each other in the NFL

but yeah, hockey is a mans sport and if you do something that is seen as a sin you're going to have to answer the bell..no matter who it is. and that's what separates hockey from the other sports. you can't get away with cheap plays without being held responsible

thought you were all about taking responsibility for your actions?

So what...they don't take off their helmets and fight as a sanctioned half-ass ritual. If they do, they are ejected from the game and fined.

Not the crap we see in the NHL....plenty of good "man sport" hockey is available elsewhere.

I couldn't be bothered with those jackasses on skates wasting my time and money by fighting during a game. Save that crap until the game is over for those who want to see it. Hell, no wonder Gretzky left.

nobody really watches college / university hockey... international hockey isn't on much of the year but there is still fighting in the olympics and world juniors, maybe once a year if you're lucky

Hell, no wonder Gretzky left.

Gretzky didn't really leave, he coached.. was bad at it, now he does other things like trying to keep his daughter from getting pregnant and thus getting her own reality show

btw Gretzkys only the best cause he had players all around him ready to protect him.. nobody messed with wayne, they knew they'd get their asses kicked if they did

Bullcrap....plenty of people watch high school and intercollegiate hockey "in the states". Maybe if you had more people and less fighting?

No, he left alright...for the US of A. Canadians were so pissed off! Still are.

Oh great....what a wonderful sport. Why not just give Gretzky a handgun...oh..they are illegal in Canada? The irony is funny.

Maybe that's why Nascar is more popular than hockey in the U.S...they watch college/university hockey and think oh this must be what hockey is like everywhere! OHL & WHL & QMJHL are pretty intense leagues.. where most of the top draft picks come from.. barely any top players are drafted from colege/university

but like I said there are a few

More hockey is played in the United States than in Canada for obvious reasons. And they can watch NASCAR too. America can have both.

I don't know about that. Mostly every small town in Canada has a rink. I don't think you can say that with any confidence in the U.S. You have 23 more NHL teams for now..but you don't have more hockey teams in general

Btw the only two college players drafted in the top 10 since 2003 were Toews & Kessel

Many US towns have dozens of rinks in the Northeast and Midwest. I think there are more teams in the USA because of the larger population. The NHL has no real national television contract in the USA, and it shows.

you're not going to get many people to agree with you by saying americans care more about hockey than canadians
