Gotta be at least a game right? Where will Parros' big wheel land?
Just a wannabe Wilson.
He’ll probably get a $5,000 reward.
Should be acouple games.
And it should have been a game misconduct.
Statement From The Pittsburgh Penguins
The Pittsburgh Penguins are extremely disappointed that Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere was not shot into space for his horrifying act of violence tonight at Wells Fargo Center.
Should be 5+ games since it was after the play, when a player is not eligible to be checked, a la Dale Hunter.
But recent precedent suggests anything that occurs after the play is only subject to a $5k fine at most.
This is probably another horrifying act of violence according to the New York Rangers.
How quaint to think we even hold players to the same standards of the early ‘90s.
It's easy to be flippant about this because Friedman wasn't hurt, but this is exactly why the league needs to crack down on plays with intent to injure. How many times have you seen a player get seriously hurt going into the boards like that? There was no reason whatsoever for Ghost to even touch Friedman on that play, let alone shove him into the boards. This is an incredibly dangerous and stupid thing to do.
Can’t be anything more than a $5k fine, so that.
Probably will get 3+ games so Parros can show how tough on violence he is.
philly commentators acting like its no big deal lmao
Literally intent to injure.
To be fair to Ghost though, I'd be pretty mad too if my defensive abilities were that poor.
The NHL has always been substantially more reactionary than proactive.
Should probably be a game. Nothing more. Let's stop with the hockey nanny hysteria. It was a cheap play but some of you folks would've been shivering under your bed with what went on in the 70's and 80's.
Using the 70's and 80's as an example is irrelevant. Things like this should be punished harshly. He shouldn't be allowed to play the first 5+(and 5 would already be going soft when a player intends to injure someone like that) games of next season at the very least. It's the only way to prevent these situations instead of the typical slap on the wrist.
Someone’s a little salty that they didn’t get picked up on waivers like Friedman.
Flyers fans all agree on our board it was a stupid and dumb thing to do.
In saying that, we also wonder what is the beef between Friedman and the Flyer players. The homer announcers have said repeatedly that they don't like Friedman and this is just one example of it showing thru....or like Farabee fighting him earlier in the game.
Would be interesting to know the behind the scenes info especially because it's mostly mild mannered players that are going after him....Patrick did too.
Friedman is getting suspended for diving.
Whatever Mark Friedman did while he was here, the entire Flyers team clearly hates this guy’s guts because they all go after him. It’s the second time he’s gotten over on us since being claimed, and the Flyers season immediately tanked when he was, so I don’t know, maybe he’s the one who was right and they should get over it.
The Flyers have gone after Friedman multiple times now.
I wonder what the story is there.
He ate their tacos.
Hey man, the refs don't manage the game, and the DOPS doesn't manage safety.
Imagine Wilson did that ? There would be protests in the street
I wonder if this is Colin Campbell's "wrong kind of crosscheck"
