Hey HS - hope you are well :)

Yup a long time! Can't even say I've been lurking, been following the leafs all these years still but family life and other stuff took over! Firmly back on the bandwagon though and will try and spend more time on TML again :)

Wow - what a game! When Bozak potted the OT winner my wife didn't need her alarm clock as my screams of delight woke her

Thoroughly enjoying this series so far!!

Not sure what the protocol is these days but it's been so long since I've posted I thought it might be best to reintroduce myself!

So if it's 10 regular season games, then he can technically still play the preseason games?

Seems that way which is pretty illogical but this is the NHL so anything is possible! ???

Paul Bissonnette also received a 10-game suspension for leaving the bench during a fight earlier in the preseason and he played in Phoenix's most recent game, so yeah it looks like Clarkson can play in the preseason. The wording of the rule is that a player is suspended for 10 regular season or playoff games. It makes sense that preseason matches aren't counted as they don't cost the player anything. I thought maybe they would ban him from the rest of the preseason on top of the 10 games but that's not the case.

I guess that the rule stating it's regular season or play off games determines the outcome. I'm pleased that any Kessel suspension is likely to be completed during the exhibition phase. I guess we should be thankful the rules for a two handed chop with a stick don't have the words regular or playoff in them!

Quick question and apologies if covered:

The Leafs have 3 exhibition games left, if, as expected, Clarkson gets an automatic 10 game suspension are the exhibition games included or will he miss the first 10 regular season games?


He would miss the first 10 regular season games.

Thanks

So likely return is Friday 25th against the Bluejackets

Seems a bit strange he could be suspended but still play the last 3 games of the pre-season and then miss the next 10. Would make more sense for him to be suspended now and miss the next 10 games the Leafs play whether exhibition or regular season.

It's likely Phil Kessel will also be suspended for having to defend himself from a goon... A costly game all round!

Like some I have not been frequenting these boards for a long time.

Very sad to learn of the passing of Mr T

A nice goal last night for his 30th, 40+ goals looks like a real possibility.
