McDavid's nasty elbow

Yeah, I was laughing about the "roughing" call too. Couldn't have been a more obvious elbow. 

 

I was reading a reddit thread and someone mentioned that for someone making 100K a year, that's $40. I'll pay $40 to elbow some coworkers. 

Yeah, but question is, are you the next coming of the "Great One" in your office?  :bigblush:

The one part of this I really don't like is that the maximum is not done as a percentage of the player's salary.  $5K to McDavid is a much smaller hit than $5K to someone making the league minimum.  I know the penalty is baked into the CBA, but they should base it on the league minimum salary and then prorate it upwards for those that make more.

 

McDavid's salary this year is $14M, so the $5K penalty, adjusted would be $100K.

Montreal was up 3-0 and they had shut down McDavid. So McCrybaby took out his frustrations on Kotkaniemi 

McCrybabay was just protecting himself from KotKovidmeenie

Listening to the talking heads on NHL network today make excuses for McDavid was disgusting.  “Oh.he puts up with a lot of abuse.  He was frustrated. He’s never done that sort of thing before”.  (When in fact he has been suspended for an illegal hit to the head in 2019). 
 

It was a dirty, late, intentional play where he targeted the head.  He got off with less than a slap on the wrist.

Doesn't get more obvious than that for deliberate attempt to injure.  Rome got 4 playoff games for a lot less.  Should give McDiver a minimum of 10 games and show that gutless punk that he's not above the rules.

McDoucheface made a dangerous decision and the league showed their preferential punishment scale. One of Jesperi's teammates, oh I don't know....maybe Shea Weber, should flatten McDingleberries in the corner and send him to the quiet room as a lesson. 

That might still happen...

All i will say is two minutes for elbowing was the right call.   Hockey fans that have been around long enough should understand this.   90% of the league would be suspended pre-cap with the rules nowadays.  Howe would get half his points.   Same with Richard for that matter.

The problem is that if McDiver had been the recipient, Kotkaniemi would have gotten suspended.  Given the NHL just had to fire a problem ref with a long history of match fixing who had been caught red-handed, this isn't the right time to give preferential treatment to crybabies who keep throwing tantrums when they're checked tightly.  The NHL has a serious issue with integrity and it needs to be addressed.

Yep.   The fact it was too many vowels was a bonus.   Man hockey is razor close to becoming women's hockey or 80's-90's all-star game stuff already.   Not a thread worthy discussion other from that exact point.    Howe elbowed guys, Messier elbowed guys, so did a ton of other guys, took their two minutes and that was it.    About as ridiculous as half of Wilson's suspensions.  Hockey is supposed to be rough.   McDavid elbowed someone at it makes the news (for real like whoopie).   Move on nothing to see here.
