No suspension for Malkin on his hit on Oshie last night:

Kind of raises an interesting question. If a player sees someone skating at him and puts his fist up does the player skating into it receive a "punch"?

Malkin did receive a 5-minute major penalty and a game misconduct on the play. So by not suspending him it's not like the league is saying it was a legal play, they're just saying it's not worth any additional punishment. So yeah I'd imagine in your scenario there would be penalties given out by the referees and any supplementary discipline handed out would depend on if there was an injury as a result of the play. The fact that Oshie returned to the game probably saved Malkin from a suspension (that's dumb, but it's how the league operates).

No, this is all true. I was asking less in a "what does the NHL think" sort of way and more polling the gathered intelligentsia here about what should be the way we look at something like this.

I don't think he should have been penalized 5 mins for the hit. He didn't blindside him and Oshie was going towards him and Malkin braced himself. I don't get what Oshie was doing there.

It looked to me like Oshie was going to step around him. Of course Malkin doesn't know that. Malkin likely thought Oshie was going to hit him so Malkin hit him first.

Tough call to make on the ice but definitely not worth any kind of extra discipline.

Def tough but I think Oshie being injured influenced a call.

Carlton was talking about Chabot the other day, and he's certainly on fire...they're playing him over 23 minutes per game too.  He's 21 years old.  22 points in 16 games.

Like Wysh said, this isn't exactly a stunning revelation.

Maybe it's a minor point but I've read Cherry's autobiography and I'm pretty sure he didn't work in steel mills or down a mine. I know he worked construction but that was his off-season job to supplement his hockey income.

Kind of a fun question to ponder. I'm torn, I think. As much fun as it might have been to have Alfredsson on Sundin's wing I think from a pure value perspective the answer has to be one of Hossa, Chara or Subban.

My answer would be Subban.  Flamboyant, outspoken, has his game face on every time, great point shot, reliable enough and...he'a T.O. boy.  'Nuff said.

I'm in Detroit on business and I'm going to see the Wings / Coyotes game tonight at Little Caesars.  I'll do some scouting for the Leafs to see what they can both offer for Nylander, wonder if this makes TSN headlines?
