Scott's hit on Ericcson was pure thuggery at its worst. Both the coach and the player involved need to be penalized as well as giving the general manager a a good tounge lashing for letting this type of incident to occur. This was on national tv and does nothing to enhance the image of the sport. There was no reason for the hit except to cause injury as the Bruins player had taken his shot and was no longer in possession of the puck. The question now is,"does the league have the intestinal fortitude to come down with a really tough set of penalties on the player,the coach and the Saber's team itself?". The Saber's are going nowhere this season and this type of play does nothing for them or the sport of hockey.
The league will do nothing. I am not sure of scott suspension history but dont remember any. The league isnt gonna make some stance bc its a bruin player. Its not gonna do it bc it was scott. Lapierre has long history of dirty hits. He gets slap on wrist really.
watch and see. Im going under 10 games.
shupe there has to come a time when the league says :enough is enough". I am calling the NHL office tomorrow and not getting off the phone until I talk to Bettman.
Why bc of this play. These are nightly. Im not saying i dont agree. But he will give us some crazy logic etc etc. settle in with 8 games.
