It'd be a bigger punishment to force him to play more minutes, but meh.
Joseph should stop boarding people
It makes the WWF look staged.
BECAUSE HOCKEY USED TO BE TOUGH AND NOW IT'S LIKE ICE DANCING RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE
lucic should control his anger and justify his 6 million dollar contract
It was a hit that had nothing to do with the play, on a completely defensles opponent. It wasn't a bad hit outsidet that, but I don't mind if NHL wants to take this stuff out of the game.
There are officcials and suspensios to deal with players. The days of the player sheriffs are long gone, and I hope they remind Lucic about that.
Honestly its a 5 minute charging but Jospeh should have been tossed too. Two wrongs don't make a right but it sure made me smile
3 game suspension please! Dear Bettman can he have an in person hearing instead?
What he did was cowardly, i say 20 games is required.
Signed Oilers fan.
In person hearing would be better. 20 games for this cowardly act.
Signed Oilers fan.
Yeah I mean ultimately if that happened in the course of play it doesn't get talked about.
Lucic hunted Joseph all over the ice and when he realized he couldn't actually chase Joseph to continue harassing him, he just angled him and blew him up away from the play. Can't expect to have that go unnoticed.
This suspension would be too good for the Oilers, so they won't enforce it. Hes going to get a fine that's about it.
I never want to see a player hurt ever again. They need to wear full face shields. You couldn't pay me enough to justify missing teeth or any other long term injury. They will find that out when they are old men.
That 5-2 W made me smile, so I think all fans were happy last night.
Playing with more fire would help justify his contract as opposed to the tranquil teddy bear he was last season. He gave Joseph a chance to man up and account for his actions, he declined. Anyone spouting ‘HURR BURR DURR HE COULDA HURT HIM THIS IS JUST LIKE BERTUZZI’ style ridiculousness has absolutely no idea what they’re talking about. Lucic was very careful not to fall on him or injure him. Joseph was in more danger of getting hurt falling off the bench during his giggle fit - clearly he was in immense pain.
Zero issue with this. Message sent that you can’t run around boarding our guys without consequence (even if the officials refused to call it, twice) and if he gets a game or two, we’d get to see what a third line without two boat anchors on it looks like. Win win.
Shouldn’t be a suspension. Didn’t do anything crazy. Game misconduct at most
Complains about reffing and has the league help them by making Lucic not play.
Hits a guy who never had the puck.
Punches him on the ground.
Continues to give him the business.
It's the most Lucic has done all year.
Hey hey I think he had a goal or something this year, I know cause there was a thread celebrating it.
It didn't go unnoticed. He received 2 minor penalties and a 10 minute misconduct. It was a check to the chest of a player facing him and a face-wash. Lucic could have done a lot more but chose not to.
At most, it deserves a fine and I'm not even sure what that would be for...No head shot, no elbow, no cross-check into the boards, no slew-foot, ...just interference and roughing. The refs actually got it right.
Maybe a fine for playing rough with the boys?
I thought only John Scott was suspendable for this.
Well, the lightning managed to miss the playoffs in 16/17 with a "winning" roster (minus Stamkos)... so I guess I really know nothing about winning.
I don't get how the argument always steers to a teams win loss record when it has nothing to do with the topic at hand. You guys are terrible forum members and should be banished to HFpurgatory(Canes Board)
That will show you.
hey... I like the canes...
