    Not surprising that he's got a hearing. Is it over the phone or in person?

    People bring up examples to try to predict what the punishment will be, which is normal.

    Given that the DOPS has not shown one iota of consistency in their rulings from situation to situation, it’s pointless.

    Dom had said a bit ago players can't be fined anymore because they don't get paid after a certain point. They would have warned him over the phone so he's definitely getting suspended one would surmise.

    Typically, if it's in person, they specify it's in-person. This means it's most likely a phone hearing. For someone with no history, and the fact that this was not an overtly intentional action, an in-person hearing seems extremely unlikely.

    I believe the point of the “hearing” is so that the player is allowed to plead their case. I doubt it will make a difference.

    I would rather have McAvoy miss Game 1 than 5 and the game last night in a Game 6. Silver lining of him getting a game is that it will disprove the notion that the NHL is biased in favor of the Bruins.

    No they don’t. People find all the examples they can that are “similar” to the situation (all of which happen to favor their stance) to try to argue why the DOPS is a joke and why their player can’t/shouldn’t be suspended. “Consistency” is the buzzword every fanbase from every league uses to justify why their team gets screwed because they can dig up examples which point the other way. Sometimes the examples are actually similar. Other times, they’re laughably desperate comparisons.

    When inevitably the authority comes to a different conclusion than the fan, said fan chalks it up to something along the lines of “this league is a joke”. And “inconsistency”.

    And no, I’m not saying that I’ve agreed with nearly every call that DOPS has made, but I also can accept that it’s a clear reality that no one person is going to agree with everything they do.

    No elbow up, no intent, player had his head down, no injury, they laugh it off during handshakes . . . yeah, no way should this be a suspension.

    No it won’t. People who believe this will forever believe what they want to believe.

    You’re overestimating people if you think that any of that sentiment is based in rational thought.

    I personally saw the backes one exactly as it was called . Live I was thinking five but after replay I was kind of thinking it would only be a two .

    No way was it suspendable . Five was the ceiling on that play.

    Now to this play This guy is engaged with another player Charlie comes over and nails him : gets the head as well as the body . Now I know there wasn't intent but when you look at what gets you a game in the playoffs this actually looks worse than most of those type hits or as bad .

    The bottom line is thank God it wasn't for game 7 against the jackets. I may be crazy but I just think it isn't only a less important game but we will have a stronger chance of winning a game 1 with out him than a game 7.

    Welp this is unfortunate. Looks as if the rest of the board will get their way.

    If he hadn’t I think this place would burn to the ground.

    The saddest part are the pearl clutching “bruins fans” that think suspension is worthy

    I think he should get a warning with no priors, but how is it not suspension worthy if they wind up going that way? Scott Stevens made a living off those hits, but there are rules in place (not that I agree with them)

    Absolutely, 10000%.

    The Bruins won without McAvoy for a good chunk of the season. If he misses a game it's not the end of the world, the Bruins are still the better team here.

    Chest first contact and Anderson’s head goes down. They have to use logic here. Oh and he was completely fine

    This was to be expected. Glad that Anderson is ok and that they were fine in the handshake line. Seeing that Charlie hasn't had any issues in the past, I think the most he would get would be one game. Thankfully, no injury occurred because of it, which works to his favor.
