    Y'all gotta wake up and put your bias aside. That's a suspension and the league will look like a complete joke if it isn't.

    A game. Maybe two.

    Don't think principle point of contact was the head, but he did get him there. Anderson was also already engaged in a puck battle with another player and McAvoy jumped into the hit.

    Don't think it was intentional, but I do believe there's enough there to warrant discipline.

    I watched it a few times and from different angles, you see him get the shoulder first and the head snaps back.

    I also watched Joe's hit where he got a game and this is much worse.

    I still think he gets a game.

    I also loved the CBC showed them shaking hands after and chatting for a minute. It seemed to be very cordial.

    Come on Joe. You know that nothing will dispel that notion with most fans who hold it. They believe it because it makes them feel better about their hate for the Bruins. Hell, a game will probably just "prove" it to them more, since they'll believe it should be more.

    At least a game. Kucherov should be the example.

    we`ll have to wait til the Jackets play the B`s next year how cordial it was:laugh:

    Personally, I thought the two traded shots all 6 games, it`s clear that CM embraced his battles with Anderson and likely vice versa and IMO, Anderson was taking what I would call charges all series vs the B`s but half of them he missed his mark and took himself out of the plays

    Hats off to anderson for getting the fact it was a play gone wrong but he obviously didn't agree with the call etc . I dont get how Anderson willing to be a good sport makes it less suspendable .

    If you guys can show me anderson saying it was the right call it will mean a lot more to me . Ronaldo basically said that once and they still suspended lucic a game

    So objective opinion is now “pearl clutching”.

    I’m not trying to impress anyone with my opinion. Just trying to give an opinion based on what I see, and not my own team loyalty. Sorry if that’s unacceptable to you.

    If you’re just going to side with what benefits your team, what’s the point of having the discussion. We’d already know where everyone’s opinions lie.

    Because the league put in the hitting to the head penalty that is the only reason it should even be a penalty, I say I can't get more disgusted with how wussified this league has become but they always manage to out do themselves. Soon players will be dressed in the sumo inflatable blow up suits but with full face shields.

    Fighting is gone, hitting will be next then we will have what Damien Cox and some of the millennial media have wanted, soccer on ice.

    It was legit closer to not even a penalty than a suspension play

    Correct.

    That sentiment being used as an argument against suspension is pure desperation.

    If it's not a suspension it'll be because they saw he didn't have any intent to hit him in the head and he has a completely clean record.

    It is and should be a game.

    No, it wasn’t.

    But I understand you are fully committed to shouting down anything that doesn’t 100% favor your team. Proudly so.

    McAvoy to have hearing for actions in Bruins game

    I would hope its One Game.

    Joe Thornton received a game suspension for a head shot that was pretty obvious he was targeting the head and he is a repeat offender. McAvoy was taking the body and making a hockey play and to me it looked as if Anderson was lowering he's body and was starting to change his direction towards the middle of the ice,causing the hit to the chest and chin/head area. If you look at the video and watch Anderson feet you can see he was just starting to make a cut to the center of the ice.

    Then you add in that Kukan did a deliberate hit to Backes head and nothing at all happens to him. a head shot is a head shot whether its done with the elbow or a shoulder.

    Did something change this year with regards to fines?

    Kempny got fined for Washington during the conference final last year.

    Keep your head up is what we were always told! He was trying hard to get by door# 1 but forgot about door #2.

    A game seems right. Andersen has to take some accountability there.

    He will forfeit next year's salary.

    What gets me is just how dumb the media calling for a major penalty are.

    Take 48 does not allow for a major for a hit to the head. It I either a minor or match penalty.

    A match is only given if the official seems it to be intentional. All 4 officials got together and determined it wasn't so it was an automatic minor. Its black and white.

    Doesn't mean a suspension can't come down but the officials game report and their report on the incident comes into play.

    Lack of Injury, although he had to go to quiet room, refs report, players talking and smiling after the game, I think this could go any way

    Backes got suspended for these hits:
    Bruins’ David Backes Suspended Three Games For Hit On Frans Nielsen



    Schenn did not get suspended for this hit while having a history:


    Backes also got elbowed to the head, but that did not warrant any suspension or call. Elbowing a player to the head is okay but trying to make body contact while the shoulder clips the head is not? I can see McAvoy being suspended for a game. The league however, is still very inconsistent.

    I think we all should be able to agree Charlie isn't doing anything stupid at that point in the game so zero intent.

    Secondly Charlie has zero history and is out most important D/man so I think that is why a lot on here can't except the fact he will probably get a game . Past playoffs with guys in his mindset and talent says he will get suspended.

    Last of all let's just be sk happy its 1 and not 7.

    If he gets an actual playoff game suspension the league is officially issued against the Bruins. In what Universe is this hit any worse than the Khukin hit.
