Tampa can circumvent the cap and they get to take out one of their opponents best players for a so/so playoff hit. 

 

It's the playoffs... come on. lol

Wow thats not a good hit.... he had plenty of time to see his back turned and slow down or turn himself. If alberts got 4 games in the finals then bennet should at least be gone for this series, and if i had it my way he would be done for the playoffs entirely

I understand any Tampa frustration, but that's a bad hit

 

If that were any of our guys being crunched like that I'd be pissed 

yup there's no defence of that one. Sammy got a little froggy. He'll sit for one game for sure.

That's basically the textbook example of the type of hit the NHL has said they've been trying to get out of the game for the past decade. 

 

If that's not a 1 goal game in the third period of a playoff game that's likely a line-brawl between these two clubs. 

 

As usual, the action the NHL takes (or doesn't take) will show us how seriously the DoPS is taking 'player safety'.

did they really get it right? coleman could have been seriously injured.

If it'd been regular season he'd likely have gotten more, but given the elimination nature of the playoffs one game carries more weight 

 

One could make an argument for two

 

All this being said, playoffs games supposedly carrying more weight makes the Rome suspension all the more ludicrous 

 

I'm still angry about that

That decision, how it was made, and who was 'consulted" about it; turned me from a fan of  all NHL hockey into a Canuck fan.

Absolute bs how that suspension was handled.
