I'm surprised we didn't lose any picks over this.

3 games... seriously? He's never been suspended before.

and it's not at ALL on purpose -- and the dude isn't even expecting to miss any games!

This is really really poor politics.

EDIT: and I do consider myself unbiased. I love getting on Devils for sh!t penalties that come out of frustration... this was just bad timing and I think a little lack of control out there -- trying too hard and getting sloppy.

This is another bad hit because a player was leaning forward and reaching for the puck with his head down.......

So considering the players past disciplinary results the league apparently feels Volchenkov's hit was more dirty thank Cooke's, since Cooke's history suggests he will be punished more harshly on repeat offender status.

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.

Here's the Cooke hit:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZW4avMvcBs

Pens commentators are such homers they just come across as caricatures at this point.


Did they actually say there is 2 ways of looking at that?? Are you kidding me he clearly hit from behind, HE CLEARLY LEFT HIS FEET! God knows I would be curious as to the other way of looking at it would be?? Of course just remember the Hoby Baker comments, and the Brodeur comment about the elderly goalie.

I mean the NHL should monitor some of the assanine comments that are made by Homer commentators and start handing out fines. I mean Team reps can get fined for ripping officials, and these guys are "team reps" they get paid by the team so they represent the team. It is time for the NHL to do something about ridiculous commentators as well!

What a pity the "hit" didn't merit 3 games. Anton should have knocked him into oblivion and had Boychuk (what kind of a fvcked-up name is that) carried off on a stretcher.

Once again the Canes inflict more pain on us, fvck that franchise to HELL.

While I don't agree with the 3 games, one positive to come out of this is that Boychuk didn't get injured. How would he getting injured have made this situation better? I'm glad he's fine and passed the concussion test.

Of course we lose him for 2 HUGE games against Toronto and Carolina!! The Sharks game while they all are important isnt as big as the other 2...

Lets hope for the Devils to rally around each other and step up even more the next few games!!

Yes that would have obviously helped us out greatly.

To be fair, what game isn't huge at this point. Team dug a hole and it would be a miracle for them to even get back in the picture so having suspensions and injuries is part of the season. Let just hope the D continues to play well as I thought they looked pretty good yesterday.

Why do you think fans of the other 29 teams don't know what the Neutral Zone Trap is?

If a team other than the Devils "traps" ("exciting" teams like Boston-Detroit-Vancouver etc) it's "good defense", if the Devils play good defense, it's the trap.

I agree with your sentiments and would go a step further. Perhaps these commentators and color guys should get fined for stupidity and misinformation.

Because in my opinion it would have justified the three game suspension.

No, but I do have a standard philosophy. If you are going to get penalized, at least make it worth it...

Let's say Boychuk was to miss the next three games due to a mild concussion, that "evens the score" so to speak.

We lost one of ours, they lost one of theirs. JMO.

If he was injured they would have given Volchenkov more than three games.
