You can see Clarkson hop off the bench and enter the fight around the 30 second mark.  Think he'll get the automatic 10 game suspension?

 

Also, it was nice to see Miller get his ass kicked by Bernier.

Clarkson is a moron for doing this. He is a big piece for the Leafs and he does something this stupid. Missing ten games becuase of a bad decision is not a good start for him in Toronto.

 

EDIT: If the TSN video doesnt work for you. http://video.mapleleafs.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=802&id=446674〈=en

My 2 takeaways is Kessel acts like a punk with the extra slash and light poking spear while Scott is engaged with someone else.

And the goalie jerseys are so obviously ridiculously too large during a fight.

Scott shouldnt be suspended because he is so useless that he accomplished nothing in this brawl lol. Kessel should get a game or two. What's lost in these shenanigans is the epic goalie fight!

Kessel is a ***** though, how more cowardly could he get.

Although to his credit Kessel did beat up that Sabre pretty good.

First off, this was awesome!

Clarkson was a moron to leave the bench knowing he'd get suspended 10 games but the bigger moron is Carlyle. Why would you put Kessel out against Scott in that situation? They had last change. There is no reason he should have been out there.

Scott broke the code by going after Kessel despite the yapping back and forth, so I understand why Clarkson and the Leafs were so upset. However, that doesn't excuse Kessel giving out two 2-handed slashes and a spear. He should also get suspended.

Loved the goalie fight at the end. Always fun to watch how awkward it is for them to throw punches with all that gear on!

Yep, he got 10. What a bonehead. 

 

Here's the youtube link.

 

 

 

Ryan Miller on David Clarkson: "Probably not the brightest move by him."

 

"Randy Carlyle didn't have much to add. "I think Dave Clarkson made a mistake," he said. "Now we pay for it."

Pretty ridiculous how we're seeing fights in so many of these meaningless pre-season games.

 

The guys who fight are usually fringe guys trying to stick with the team.

How the hell is leaving the bench 10 games? 10 games is for serious infractions like stick to the head stuff.

Which means it's encouraged by the coach and therefore management.  Until this thinking goes away, we'll see this sort of stuff every year.

Its to discourage anybody from doing it.  Once players start clearing the bench, its hard for the 4 officials to get it under control.

I certainly dont condone PK using his stick as a weapon, but he clearly wanted nothing to do with Scott and was about to get mugged. Cant have goons going after star players without consequences. Unfortunately, suspending Scott and Kessel equally will hurt the Leafs a lot more than it will hurt the Sabres; Shanny needs to take that into account.

Fighting out of real animosity is fine and actually entertaining.  It's the canned wrestling matches between Cam Jannsen and PL3 that are just boring.  I take that time to go to the bathroom.
