    Actually Hang, the cap really isn't an issue at all, as the young up-and-comers, all come cheap.  Everyone making the big bucks already has a job.  Without the heavyweight, one of the "tough to cut" players is automatically in...at entry level money.

    Fair enough steve, but then coaches and GMs are forced to make decisions between developing the up-and-comers the traditional way of giving them a ton of icetime in the AHL, versus 7-9 minutes a game as a 4th line NHLer.  Bottom line is organizations want their young stars to play a lot of hockey in all situations and you just won't get that type of exposure as a 4th liner.

    Well i will throw my 2 cents in.   I loved what kessel did.  Big goof comes on the ice after a terrible incident.  Says hes gonna do it.  Then attempts to.  What is phil to do.  Wait and let this guy hit him first.  I would have had no issue if phil broke his stick on this idiot.  clowns are supposed to fight clowns.  Kessel is their best player and a complete skill guy.  Leafs didnt have one of their clowns at the circus that night.  if some big bag of cr ap came after bergie i would want him to do the same thing.  I even loved that he went back and speared him just for good measure.  

     

    Wow is there a lot of bad blood early in the pre season.  I love it.  Pure hate.

    Oh come on shupe.  What you're sayiing is that it's ok for skill players to go around chopping away at goons, just because they're goons.  So now we have 2 sets of rules, one set for skill players who feel threatened, and another set for everyone else..  Phil could have just as easily turtled like Subban or Burrows would have.  To deliberately swing his stick like he did, even after others had jumped in to neutralize Scott, is cowardly, and clearly against the rules. He needs a suspension.

    In response to Fletcher1's comment:

    In some strange way, I actually gained some respect for Kessel, although coming back at the very end to get another spear in on Scott was just silly and pathetic.  

    I just hate to see a useless thug like Scott trying to jump a star player, in the preseason.  It's awful.  Sure Phil ran and swung his stick, but what's he supposed to do?  Surprised he didn't just turtle.  Then he gave a pretty spirited fight to Flynn.  Good for him.

    John Scott has no place in this league.  It's embarassing for the sport.




    your right, Scott has no place in the league, i was ok with Kessel's first swing but i could do without the 2nd one.

    Who was the last player that was injured due to an opposing player "taking liberties" (GOD I HATE THAT TERM) because there was no goon presence?



    McLaren on Zednick comes to mind as I think Montreal was pretty soft back then.

    Did Zednick even miss a shift?  I thought he got up smiling.

    he was hospitalized with a fractured cheekbone, broken nose and concussion.  He missed the remainder of the playoffs after being taken off on a stretcher.

    I like to bash the Habs as much as the next person, and do believe they are soft but this was not a dive/fake intjury etc.  If this hit happens in todays game a 20 game suspension would not suprise me at all.

    What the... Rolston gets fined even though it was Carlyle that had last change and  Kessel gets basically nothing even though he made at least one chop that was obviously intent to injure? How does that make sense?

    And the players don't get paid for preseason, so he doesn't lose a penny.

    Haha I know, he's probably happy he gets a mini vacation and avoids any chance of getting a senseless injury.
