I expected 1 game. Nice to see the NHL be lenient after screwing us over consistently.

Fined $2500. I was really expecting a suspension especially considering the upcoming opponents.

Not really on topic, but Elias really has been one of the most pleasant surprises this season. Roughly a point-per-game offensively? Couldn't really have expected that.

He has a decent shot to finish his career with 1000 points...even an outside shot to finish with 900 by season's end.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I'll take it. Were going to need him with our tough scheduling. I think that's huge that he didn't get suspended. Now.let's hope Larrson only misses a game and that Foster gets sent down Albany.

I thought Elias' play was fairly dirty, and probably deserved a game, but I think even Shanahan realized he passed on too many questionable hits on Devils' players. Devils were lucky to only get a minor on the play.

Still confused how the boarding hit on Clarkson has, not escaped punishment, but any review whatsoever.

Which one? There were two.

I hope that Shanahan took the context of the game into account - that three Devils had been run with 0 penalties called. Elias just figured boarding was legal now.

Patty's stellar reputation throughout his long career certainly came into play in the fine-only decision.

I regret missing this hit...haven't seen Elias get really physically aggressive since two years ago when he tried to make Steve Ott's head bleed

Maybe our financial troubles are helping us out. it would be in the best interests of the league to have us make the playoffs! :evil: less bail out money needed, and every little point helps

Dirty hit from a clean player. Merits a penalty/wake up call, but not a suspension.

So there were 3 fines in the game? Clarkson got drilled twice in the numbers, dangerously.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
