    The reason Charlie only got 2 was because the refs didn't want a potential repeat controversy after what happened in the Vegas-San Jose series.

    They made the safe call and gave him 2 minutes and figured that the league would deal with supplemental discipline after the fact, which is exactly what is happening.

    As I already said there is no major for hi to the head. It's a minor or or a match penalty and for it to be a match penalty it has to be intentional

    I think he'll get 1 game. Hard to be upset with that, except Kukan should have got a game as well.

    Moore is available. He subs in for game 1 against the Hurricanes. Not a replacement for Charlie, but the D will be okay for one game.

    I am not arguing for or against the point but to say that any Bruins defensemen did not want to clobber Anderson is an understatement.

    So is it the responsibility of the body checker to ascertain and judge the extent of the "blindside" on the guy being hit? Not being snarky at all.

    I don't have an issue if the league wants to use a "principal point of contact" measure, and live with the fact that sometimes the puck carrier is at fault himself but it's just easier to put the burden on the checker. I'm okay with that to the extent the goal is to cut down on head shots. But if the hitter now also needs to be aware of how aware the puck carrier is, that's another issue entirely to me. I think the puck carrier is 100% responsible for keeping their head up and in no way is their head being down to be a factor in assessing penalty to the checker.

    As soon as you introduce subjectivity here I think it becomes a ****show. Which is probably why it is a ****show.

    No **** Einstein! And McAvoy was targeting the boards eh? The difference was intent. He tried to throw a hit, it went wrong, hit Anderson in the head (are you gonna deny that to?). Lucky Anderson was ok. Accept the facts and move on. But but Kukan... It’s got nothing to do with this incident.

    Take a breath.

    If someone says Debrusk was targeted it just means it’s specific to Debrusk. As in Kadri specifically made the hit because of who it was.

    McAvoy wasn’t targeting anyone. I believe he would’ve made the same hit had Anderson had ANY other name on his back.

    Yup.

    Even if it was somewhat “subconscious”, I believe this to be true.

    Is John available? I was trying to figure this out. Last I can find news on him, he seems to still be injured.

    Or am I just completely off on this...?

    The match penalty is 5 minutes and booted from the game, which is what i think he means. You can get a major and still play in the game after you serve the time.

    What about the fact both we’re fine after the hit? That was my point. Being fine lessens the discipline, but doesn’t change the fact there was transgression. If being fine was the main criteria, then kadri wouldn’t have gotten suspended.

    Looking at the hit from different angles, CM did hit him in the chest and caught his chin at the same time. It looks way worse IMO when looking at it from the ice, when looking at it from the stands it didn't look that bad. He'll either get a suspension or he won't, all the talk comparing it to other hits won't matter when it comes down to making that decision. Personal opinion aside, I won't be shocked if he gets 1 game.

    As for the talk about stopping the headhunting, how does the NHL think they are going to stop it when a player only gets 2 minutes for it during a game? If it's a direct hit to the noggin, shouldn't that player be given a 5 and GM? I'm no officiating expert but that seems the logical way to deal with a head shot.

    Think the issue when comparing hits stems from some of them not getting enough of a suspension, not that there was one in the first place.

    Thornton clearly picked the head. Doughty as well. One game each.

    McAvoy I don’t think was trying to, but he was absolutely trying to blow up Anderson.

    Problem is you can’t suspend guys for a period. Because based on the aforementioned rulings that’s what he should be getting.

    Maybe, maybe not. Who knows what Charlie was thinking? Anderson has been hitting Dmen all series long. I think Charlie knew who he was hitting. But I’d be assuming just like you as to what his intent was.

    Sweeney said today that Moore is available to play.

    Good. I'd 1000% rather have Moore than Kampfer.

    I think Charlie gets one game.

    Exactly, I have no need to satisfy the irrational wants of biased fan bases.

    I’d question the sanity of anyone who felt otherwise.

    Just give him a game so we can stop this whole false narrative that the league somehow favors us (lol).

    Hoisting the cup will be even sweeter, and Charlie is gonna come back recharged and rested.

    The reverse angle shows that it was a hit to the upper chest. Shouldn't be anything if ****ing Kukan didn't even get a phone call for trying to decapitate Bsckes. But knowing the league, they'll screw us like they always do.
