    In response to Bruinfaninnewjersey's comment:

    Stafford threw an intentional elbow square to Doug's face... whether it did any damage or whether Doug embellished only changes the penalty. But no penalty was called.

    So I believe winning the Cup (or the WAY in which you win the Cup) certainly has some relevance... just not in the way you are suggesting. This team is known as being Big and Bad. Players may take more liberties (or feel they have to.) Refs may allow more. It happens.



    So the league will not give the Bruins any breaks on disciplinary decisions to offending teams because of the way the Bruins had the image of being "big and bad" on their way to the cup ?

    And the plot thickens.

    Interpret however you wish. Had a penalty been called as it should have been, I believe it would have been looked at by the league.

    Does anyone have a link to the Stafford elbow on Hamilton?  I didn't see it.   I looked on youtube but there isn't anything.

    I'm glad someone else finally brought it up. I was starting to think my brother and I were the only ones who saw the blatant (and purposeful) elbow.

     



    My question, is why haven't any of the Bruins beat writers talked about it, they were at the morning skate.  No mention of whether it is even being reviewed.

    IMO Hamilton missed a golden opportunity to make a statement. I'd have loved to see him drop the gloves with Stafford the next time they were on the ice together. Win, lose or draw it would have been nice to see. Maybe it's the "Old time hockey" fan in me but I think it could have given the B's a boost.

    I'd be surprised if anything happened to Stafford via the league.

    There was no penalty called on the Erskine hit to Simmonds. There should have been.

    Erskine has a hearing today with the league.
