    In more WTF news from around the league:

    The league gave 2 games for this:

    I think this is a right step where the league should be going after the play and not the outcome. Just really odd to see the league give out 2 games for something that isn't a head shot and the player getting up immediately after.

    Amazing how the NYR organization crapped on Davidson. He loves the organization and built a reputation with Columbus and St. Louis post NHL career apart from his time with the MSG broadcast team. Hope it comes back and bites them.

    So what are the League rules on what punishment the Rangers are going to get for that ridiculous Official Statement that got the GM+Pres fired?
    Is there a money limit?
    Can it go into other realms like forfeiting a pick? (doubt it would but no idea what's allowed in this case)

    To be honset the Rangers gave Chris Dury alot of money last year to keep him from another GM job. This has been in the works Wilson just threw gas on it and lit a match

    Remember what happened to the Rangers when they signed Drury as a UFA. It killed the team. I can see this derailing the Rangers

    The Drury situation reminds me a lot of the Todd Rierden situation which isnt really a good model for Dolan.

    Hopefully because I despise the franchise. I like Drury as a player and seems like a class act though. I think I may even remember him playing in the little league world series years ago.

    Why? He's right and it absolutely played a part. The Rangers' statement could have come right off of Twitter (it got soy on my screen just pulling it up). You may not like that this is one of the consequences of modern cultural drift, but that doesn't change reality.

    Looks like we'll continue to mute national broadcasted games :(. What a poor choice of broadcasters.

    Rangers losing 3-0 to Boston after 2 periods. Getting outshot 28-7. Lol.

    New Jersey up 2-1 on the Isles after 2 periods.

    Sadly the Pens up 5-3 on the Slugs after 3 periods but the Slugs have a PP. Carter has a hat trick for the Pens.

    Pens are probably gonna win out. So we need to win out minus one point.

    It's always baffled me that the league can just issue fines to people or teams who say something it doesn't like. There's not even an attempt at a justification. Just plainly, well, that makes us look bad so you're punished.

    Imagine supporting that garbage just because you disagree with a particular statement that prompted one of those punishments.

    when you buy into a billionaires club, it still has rules. The league is bigger than any one franchise.

    They’re lucky they didn’t get a bigger one.

    Yep! Gotta win out to play Islanders. Otherwise it is Boston in the first round. That needs to be a second round series.

    The old boys machine always wins. Because the old boys are the machine. Cuban tried it. Jones tried it. Snyder tried it. Machine will f you up if you step out.

    Canucks crushing the Oilers 5-2. McD with 2 points, of course. Lol.

    Up to 95 points.
    BTC.

    Graovac has scored for the Canucks.
