Just watched the OIlers vs Dallas highlights (watching Hockey2nite) and there were more dangerous hits. Dallas player boarded potter and he left the game. Dallas was just taking runs at players to the point that gagner fought someone

Where the hell were Jones' teammates?

That aside, one game. If instigating a fight in the last five minutes of a game is suspension-worthy, a crosscheck to the back is as well, especially in a 5-1 game.

I can't wait till the media starts calling him a coward, goon, headhunter, and use words like classless, reckless to describe him.

Oh wait...he's not a Canuck? Carry on...



I don't recall any members of the media being overly critical of a Canucks player since Ron MacLean's diatribe on Burrows. Most members of the media disagreed with the Hansen suspension....

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

I wouldn't go as far as vicious but it was incredibly stupid, 1 game max. To be honest I thought Dillon's hit on Eberle was more "vicious" however Eberle wasn't hurt and is not a Blackhawk so no suspension on that expected.

Looked to me like Jones went in a little too hard into the goalie, but then obviously tried not to hurt the goalie and even seemed like he was asking the guy if he was ok. His 2 for goalie interference was punishment enough. No need for that dirty hit. That being said, not sure it's worth a suspension. Just an *&& beating next game with the Oilers.

I'm a huge Benn fan but I hate to see players hit other players without the puck. In this case Jones wasn't even involved at all in the play, totally uncalled for Benn deserves to be suspended for this one.

I think it's fairly obvious that it was retaliation for Jones running the goalie. Still, I'd hardly call that "vicious". It was a bit cheap, but it sure didn't look as bad as Jones made it seem.

My guess is a game, maybe two.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Lol that was far from "vicious", if Jones really was that hurt from that he shouldn't be playing in the NHL out of concern for his saftey. It was for sure a penalty but a suspension would be laughable. The true stupidity of it all is Benn>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Jones on his worst days, should of been someone else going for Jones.

Please note that that replay was slowed down. That was a hard, hard crosscheck for absolutely no reason. You want to get at him for running into the goalie fine, do it to his face. Cowardly, idiotic and I hope he gets 3 or 4.

And no, this doesn't "happen every game". That was as hard as he could crosscheck to a completely unsuspecting player who wasn't braced for anything. Look at the way his head whips back. That's bad and I don't doubt for a second that it hurt like hell.

I'm sorry i see 4 or 5 crosschecks harder than this on Burrows and the Sedins almost every single game. As soon as they are down they jump up and carry on playing... Maybe he was really hurt and it wasn't an act but if that is the case Jones should retire from hockey cause his body just isn't cut out for it.

Jones is a wimp. I've seen players get cross checked harder than that in front of the net.

Well, that's just an absurd statement. So every player that has been injured on a play that other people haven't been injured by in the past should retire? Did you even think about what you were writing there?

Great act by Jones.

I know what it's like getting checked in that area. It's the one area of your torso that's not really covered by anything, so yeah, it does suck getting crossed in there.

But come on, you'd think somebody shot the guy.

The entire game, Edmonton was playing physical against Benn whenever they had him on the boards and corners. They're losing 5-1, Jones was probably running his mouth and he took matters in his own hands.

I understand that the league is already looking into this, but for what it's worth.. It's not a headshot..

I wish I could find it, but Chicago media personnel on Twitter after that game were acting like it was Torres on Seabrook.

For the record, I don't think Benn should have been suspended for this. Sometimes a penalty is good enough and this was of those cases.

With that said...Jones dives? People actually think that? That was a hard cross check that he didn't expect to come. Have you ever had the wind knocked out of you? Maybe it doesn't cause an injury but there is about a minute there where you really feel like you're in bad shape. He gets cross checked in the back hard and then falls face first onto the ice. If you're criticizing this, you're an internet tough guy. This happens to anyone and they're hurting.

...and I know people get cross checked in the front of the net but its a little different when you're expecting it.

If Burrows had reacted like that when he took the punch to the face on a "hockey play" last week, It'd have been a game misconduct, $2500 and at least 2 games.

Burrows that is...

Only fined 10K because according to Shanahan he is a first time offender, well last time I checked Hansen was a first time offender but he was still suspended. The hit Benn did to Jones was 100 times worse then what Hansen did with Hossa, at least Hansens was a hockey play to get the puck, Benns had nothing to do with the puck or the play of the game, it was all intent to injure. But that's ok I guess to the NHL just a little slap on the wrist, BUSH LEAGUE.

Pfft. Crosschecks like that happen in front of the crease all game long. Jones gets up if he's in that area, imho.

It was a cheapshot, and that gets a penalty. That's it.

Everyone these days is so p-fied it's ridiculous. Suspension? Lol.

Meanwhile Hansen's hit was to the head. That can be suspension-worthy any day.

Besides the Hawks have Scotty Bowman in their back pocket and therefore the refs too.
