    Emelin elbow on Downie

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcJucARuXX4

    five-minute major for elbowing and a game misconduct was called on the ice. I say no suspension.

    Disagree SanDog....the flying chicken wing comes out and the direct point of contact is the head... How can that not be a suspension.... It will get reviewed , I am saying two games... 3 if there is a concussion involved.....

    Downie played after and I kinda thought he tries to sell it a bit. I won't mind being wrong seing the outrage by Shab fans already.

    I mean the nerv of anyone claiming a Canadien doing anything dirty Sealed

     Call 911.  Did Downie see Emelin, I think so. Downie also did diva dive as if he was playing at the Molson Centre.

    Downie got hit high, but sold that big time.

    In my opinion he should get two games.

    He's pinching, makes no attempt to play the puck, and led the hit with the elbow. Downie was already in a prone position stretching to clear the puck out.

    The point of the pinch is to keep the puck in the offensive zone and he didn't play the puck at all.

    My word. 

    Here's a different look at the cause of that play:

    Give me a break.  Yeah, there was contact.  You get a penalty for that.

    Incorrect !

    The point of pinching ( besides keeping the puck in ) is also to play the body if the man beats you to the puck. He attempted that but missed with a slight brush to Downie causing him to do his best Greg Louganis impersonation.

    Downie playing the puck, gave Emelin every right to go for the hit. 

    If anything Downie should get the call from the league office for "acting live a diving fool ".

    Downie has the fool part down to a "T". Now he just needs to get the diving part worked out.

    I think his elbow stays tucked in the whole time. No reason for Emelin to get kicked out of the game nevermind a suspension.

    And thats one of the worst dives by Downie that I've seen in a long time. You can tell he thought about it for a second.

    If you make the hit because you can't get the puck that should net you an interfernce penalty, at the very least.

    This kind of play should be subject to a new type of penalty - 2 or 5 minutes for "looking for trouble."
