    The NHL has a dilemma. Do they suspend a player for pushing another player down who happens to get hurt from the play and reportedly has concussion-like symptoms? Petersson is a budding star but is 170 lbs soaking wet? Mike Matheson is a tough but not a dirty Dman and plays like these are common in the NHL - usually the player bounces right up.

    There's also the question of what caused the injury. I say it was the clean hit that caused the injury and not the push to the ice afterward. I also say absolutely no suspension. DRAW THE LINE.

    Based on the fact that his head did not have any contact whatsoever from Matheson or from the ice when he went down.

    I thought Mathewson avoided contact to the head and made contact with his collarbone area.

    However I’m pretty sure his face and/or side of his head landed on the ice, but I’d have to watch again.

    Your head doesn't have to get hit to get a concussion. But, go on.

    This is not true though. He drove EP done to the nice making clear contact with his head on the way. The initial hit was fine but the choke slam to the ice is not. That is not even remotely close to a hockey play.

    NHL got this right.

    I agree with your description of the incident, disagree that the NHL got it right. Should have been 5 games.

    Enough coddling wannabe tough-guys instead of protecting stars.

    Frankly, I hope the next CBA allows for longer suspensions off the bat, without having to wait til somebody is a repeat offender like Torres or Wilson to really hand down something with teeth.

    You must watch the game on a 7 inch screen if you truly think you saw Matheson make contact to the head at any time.

    You must be blind if you can’t see him drive him to the ice and make contact with his head it is obvious. This is hockey not WWE.

    Dallas is still a one line team, nothing changed from last year, they don’t scare me.

    The Blues are a mess right now, we’ll see if Yeo gets canned soon but it’s bad news for them if Petro can’t turn it around, he’s carried that team for years.

    Nashville looks like the class of the central, and I get the feeling we match up poorly again this year.

    the Stars were so dominating they pulled Bishop with 7 minutes to go...lol, yep thats right...7 minutes to go because they couldn't generate **** besides weak outside chances and barely any second chances. Ottawa was faster, worked harder, and simply outplayed the Stars...

    and now the Wild lose too!!!

    Remember 3 years ago when Nill was thought of as an excellent GM?

    Look at his recent draft picks outside of Heiskanen. Like how the hell do you even draft that badly?

    Although the brutal drafting extends way past Nill I’ll admit.

    You conveniently changed what you originally said with another personal attack to say it. Your superiority complex is nauseating.

    Hahahaha. Nothing I said implies superiority and I did not change my stance at all. What’s nauseating is you thinking since you quest if I watch the game on a 7” monitor but then when I shoot back you cry wolf.

    Pretty obvious that the initial hit was fine. The finish with slamming him to the ice was what concussed him, and was not ok. Correct call to suspend him a couple, IMO.
