    I don't recall Kassian getting any games?

    Now.....with that said, giving the time left in the game, he'll sit a few. Not because he didn't do the exact same thing as Kassian, but because it was a major with less than 5 minutes to go in the game.

    Nobody cares? The guy has 3 NHL games and 18 AHL games this season.

    My only objection to the hit was that he was trying to hurt him......and he did. It's pretty grey as to whether it was illegal or not, but make no mistake that he was trying to inflict damage. There were a lot of strides taken prior to the hit.

    Down by two, about a minute to go in the game, you have the extra man on the ice, and instead of trying to keep the puck in the offensive zone you choose to take the head off of an unsuspecting player.

    Backlund knowing they had the extra man on the ice and that nothing is over until it's over was doing everything he could to make sure he got the puck out of the zone.

    Looking at the whole picture......Dumba took out his frustrations of losing the game on Backlund. Then, when challenged for his actions, turtled against a guy three inches shorter than him. Sometimes you need to answer the bell for your actions. If not this game, he'll be asked to do it next game. Kinda the way the NHL has been for decades.

    Not an automatic suspension but an automatic review. Guarantees that they look at it.

    Given that they gave him an instigator as well he likely gets a game. I think if he does the coach gets a small fine too

    He should get one by the rulebook. However, since the guy should be in the AHL anyway, the suspension has no effect on anyone.

    Yeah he'd be sitting in the press box all weekend anyway so suspension doesn't matter much

    Also note that NHL uses "rescinded". They need evidence to overturn the incoming suspension.

    I remember that happening in a Flames game a year or two ago as well. Someone (Ferland maybe?) Got an instigator with a minute left but the NHL decided not to give him the suspension

    You can actually pinpoint the frame where Dumba pees his pants.

    I wonder if Giordano is ever going to get suspended for one of his knee on knee hits?

    He's been making a habit out of it the last few years.

    Out of position and too slow to recover, so trip happens. He could try to learn another trick instead of the knee destroyers. Like the garden variety bear hug.

    Also too slow to catch Koivu is an achievement in its own right.

    Pretty odd throwing shade on a front runner for the Norris at this point of the year?

    Bobby Ryan
    Cam Fowler
    Koivu

    Off the top of my head. Might be missing one or two.

    That's in the last couple of seasons. Which is alot because I can't remember the last time I saw a knee on knee by anyone else.

    The hit came a few minutes after the Giordano knee on Koivu (he didn’t return), in the waning moments of a game that looked like a loss. Dumba playing at home might have been a bit extra amped up and Koivu is the only captain he’s ever had.

    As far as the hit goes; I would say it was clean regardless of the sweaters. I like big open ice hits and I’ve been consistent. Dumba doesn’t launch himself through the air for a high hit, he explodes up into Backlund.

    I have never loved the idea that every big hit need a fight. I think that leads to less big hits. This was different though given the circumstances, and I get why the coach wanted to send AHL guy out there. He’ll pay the fine and we all move on.

    Homer much? He gets handful of 3rd team allstar votes every year, but that is about that. Around 10th best D every year.

    Also 34, not 24. Also speed class "glacier" in a league that just banned grapple hockey.

    Mmmmmhmmmmmm.......Off the top of your head.

    I'm betting a card carrying Flames basher like yourself was on Google faster than a fat kid on a Smartie!

    You asked for a list. You got the list and now you are just going to cry about it?

    The guy clearly has a history of knee to knee.

    He hasn't been "in the running" for the last decade and you are in the wrong part of the North America to win anything.

    Just being the realist here.
