    what do you think he will get in terms of suspension for the hit on Ericcson.

    The argument could be made this was similar to the Miller hit by Lucic.

    ***

    Scott suspended seven games for check to the head:

    Maybe the Bruins should get Gaustad to avenge the hit with his frenetic fist. :laugh:

    Not a repeat offender, so 5 games.

    Probably closer to 10 games.

    I think it's a bit ridiculous. The hit was slightly late, but not really. Hits are that "late" all the time. It was not a blind-side hit, which are much much worse.

    The head was hit because of 2 factors:
    (1) Height difference, including the fact that Loui was leaning down after the pass
    (2) The angle of Loui's body after dumping the puck.

    I have no problem with them calling a penalty on it, but I think the hit is being COMPLETELY blown out of proportion because of who it is (a goon).

    3-5 games.

    But another fine to Rolston of course. Maybe $20,000. :sarcasm:

    You say that like Shanahan takes his own "rules" into mind when handing out bans.

    Shanny can put his Leaf hat on to give him something that the Toronto media wanted him to get in the exhibition game. The hit seemed clean but LATE. The arm and elbow were down but the height difference was important here--I suppose you could say taller players just have to be more careful hitting players much shorter.

    It will probably be a bigger punishment to the Sabres to not suspend Scott.

    Scott was warned after the Kessel garbage and told to keep himself out of trouble, so he'll get the book thrown at him.

    This is what will happen and it's hilarious.

    Scott has no history. Three other hits to the head were thrown last week that resulted in 5 game suspensions. But because he was warned which isn't official Shannahan will somehow find a way to give him more games than were handed out last week.

    Should be for his career, cannot stand having players like him on this pathetic team. I think I have more hockey talent then this goon. ^_^

    3-5, and most likely 5. The outrage by Bruins (most) and Leafs fans on the main board is hilarious.

    Saying that, I hope the recipient is ok.

    Waiting for Grigorenko to nail off 15 points during Scott's suspension so Rolston can reunite them after he returns.

    I just don't find the hit that objectionable.

    2 games in a rational universe.

    10 games Shanny's universe, where Buffalo represents all that is impure and unholy.

    2 games for the injury to top 6 player
    2 games for playing on the same team as pat kaleta
    2 games for being 6'8" and injuring someone under 6'6"

    total : 10 games

    I strongly dislike having Scott on this team but honestly I don't see the difference between Scott and Chara....it is laughable to think that the linesmen separated them after the hit. Let those goons just fight.

    Not sure if you're serious... you don't see a difference between Chara and Scott?
