    So I believe the 10 games is automatic but the league and looks at it and then only they can decide whether to decrease it or not.

    In Kane's case it appears the league reduced the 10 games down to 3.

    Can't touch the refs like that, intentional or not.

    Also, there is no need to slash someone like that

    Bettman has to approve the reduction from 10 to 3 games. He shoved the ref, it wasn't the slash...

    The slash was to Engelland after they were separated.

    I also wonder if the fact that Kane tried to go after Engelland repeatedly even after being separated played a part in him getting 3 games.

    Sometimes you just gotta walk away.

    He reads off the actual rule. The suspension is automatic, but the 3 games is a starting point:

    Kane is a dumbass and was sure he would get three games. Even more fitting Vegas and San Jose open the season with a home and home that he will no longer be there for.

    The linesman did nothing wrong. The Sharks and Knights game had a bunch of earlier altercations, some of them involving Kane, at that point in the third, he was on their radar and were told that enough was enough. The ref first grabs Englend and tries to escort him back into the play. He eventually grabs Kane and they lightly collide. It wasn't a push or tackle, as these social media idiots want to claim. The ref was gliding as he had a hold of Kane's jersey and Kane turned and stopped skating, resulting in the bump. Kane had been acting like an idiot all night long and it ended with another idiotic play.

    Also to note, the current toughest guy in the league was in the lineup while the Sharks goaltender illegally checked the Knights' best player ( Stone ) and also saw Kane go after one of their non fighters.

    Where does he rank in terms of well-traveled players? He outdid Jagr and Brent Ashton.

    As I posted just above yours:



    Kane clearly push/shoves the linesman.

    Yes, Kane does. I've seen a lot of posts here and on social media crying that the ref pushes/tackles Kane to the ice, which is bull****.

    It's going to be absolutely hilarious if the Leafs name Matthews captain. That is going to be such a sideshow.

    A "shame" Kane won't be playing in the two games vs Vegas to get his ass beat.

    Tonight I am rooting for Ottawa, Washington, Vegas to go to bed happy.

    At least three fights in each game. Let's see Wilson be stupid again as well.

    I think Tavares is such a ho hum choice, but I guess no matter what the angle is there will be some kind of controversy over it, ie. "They didn't choose Matthews because of the incident!"

    And meanwhile, the Bruins have both the longest serving Captain and longest serving Alternate Captain in the league. :D

    I'd disqualify Matthews just for that stupid commercial he and Marner did last spring :laugh:
