At 6 more years at 4.8 mil per HARD PASS on that move.

I mean is it any less drastic of a 'message sent' than what some other posters are proposing???? ::D

This is the response. 

 

 

If Bo does that to Matheson, give him the C right away.

Hope Guddy fights him. If not Guddy, maybe Schaller if he is playing. Also, after the fight, don't stop playing him hard and don't stop finishing your checks on the guy.

I Hate the Moore incident being brought up to justify the no response argument. Boooooo! 

aside from that 

Canucks can’t afford to lose any of the next 5 games. Their season will be dictated by this month. So they better get at least a 2 goal lead before they get Gudbranson to pick a fight or take a dumb penalty.

Well when you say force a fight that's generally the result. If he doesn't wanna go he doesn't wanna go.

Most people know where I stand regarding retribution and putting our star players out of bounds but I honestly don't see the merit in delayed "punishment"

It should have been done during the game and I am not happy with Green's reasons for "apparently" holding our 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse back at the time.

 

Let's not kid ourselves. We don't have either meanness (Lucic types) or guys who will uphold the code since Dorsett sadly retired. Imo we have not had a code driven reaction fighter since Rick. He never stopped to look at a guy's size, or the scoreboard, or whether he had just had a fight the previous night he just DID THE RIGHT THING.

Memories.... RIP Rick. A true warrior and a first class teammate. They just don’t make them like this anymore.

I would consider putting Roussel on him every shift, especially at the start of the game when we will have lots of time to recover from the punishment the refs will hand out.

 

On him, on him, on him, little poke here, elbow there, (love me some butt-ends), constantly, over and over again until he loses it and then it's Howdy Doody Time!

 

And no stopping at the whistle.  He lifted and threw EP head first to the ice well after the play was whistled dead.  Payback's a bitch.

 

No way that crappy DOP(e)S 2 game slap on the wrist makes up for concussing a player with a non-hockey move after the whistle and with no cause except getting outplayed all game.

Anyone who says we need to get even with Matheson is just as bad, if not worse, than Matheson himself. Period.

 

You want to get even with him? I hope someone gets even with you afterwards to be honest. I guess we'll just then end up in never ending injuries instead of actually playing the game, winning games, etc.

I'll remember that you said this the next time one of our guys goes down from a predatory hit.

Maybe gentler given what used to be a legal hit is now a no no and anyone with their head down shouldn’t worry because if they get hit someone will get a suspension, not sure about the kinder thing though as it took refs a year to clean up the slashes to the hand epidemic (that used to be a CODE violation).   

 

Id say that Milbury’s premonition that the league was becoming pansified (he’s coined phrase was pansification, and that was nearly 20 years ago that he said it) has occurred, and that players haven’t   caught up with the changes since they no longer have a big nasty brother patrolling the ice 5-6 minutes a game. 

 

Things have reverted to pre-expansion, when there was limited jobs on six teams and rolling four lines was how things were done because even your fourth line was valuable and productive (10-14 minutes instead of 4-7)).   Back then almost every player in the league would fight when challenged or when they had to stick up for themselves, and nobody had a goon to fight their fights for them.

 

After almost 5 decades of players knowing that some giant was ready and willing to spend five minutes or more in the box for you at any given moment the current players have been conditioned that as long as they themselves walk the line, nothing will likely happen to them.  Problem is now they know nothing will happen to them when they cross it too.  Must be awfully tempting for them.  Slashing hands?  That’s a total lack of respect for the code IMO, one team gets  2 minutes, other team loses a guy for 2-3 months.  Before they’d be signing their own death warrant for doing this...now?

 

Point is you can’t have it both ways (no enforcers equals no protection, nobody willing to take a suspension to send a message) we are rolling four lines again, that means no enforcers, it means players can sneak some cheap stuff in and get away with it, and it means played and teammates need to be prepared to answer the bell.  And stick up for guys that need help, they need it more than ever now.9
