Who would have possibly thought George Parros would be bad at this except for every person ever.
come on, he only hit him with the flat part of the skate, give the psycho a break.

If he kicked him in the neck might have been 8 games

Who would’ve guessed it’d be a hand injury that felled Karlsson this season...

Both of Ottawa's 1st rounders are going to be very high.

Think that Pageau could get them another late one?

:(
Winnipeg has shut down Bryan Little for the rest of the season. He's one of my favourites, since his days as captain of my hometown Barrie Colts. Injury must've been more severe than they originally thought and now he's gonna have surgery. What's best for Bryan in the long run, I suppose. I just hope he can come back.

So, it looks like the first player to publicly criticize George Parros' uneven suspensions publicly is...

*checks notes*

Evander Kane?

What a joke.

Definitely, but I'm a bit surprised by the... surprise. DOPS has been suspending to the severity of the injury since forever, regardless of how dangerous the action. My memory isn't great, but racial stuff aside, has there been a longer suspension for any action in which there wasn't any injury sustained?

In fairness to the league, there is some tap dancing with the PA on these suspensions.

I think the league and the PA need to get together on some standards here. 

Kane has some leverage given the PA can appeal this stuff, but the league really doesn't have anywhere to go here in terms of standards or precedents that they've all agreed to.

It's a tough situation, and maybe Parros & co. is just trying to ensure that these decisions don't become a consistent bunch of appeals...Maybe.

Edmonton does us a favour by beating Florida.
Tampa does similar by beating Philly.

Re: Kassian

Quote
After the game, Kassian told Mark Spector that “(Cernak) was holding my leg, it was reactionary, I was just trying to get him off me, kick him off me.”

At least he was honest about kicking Cernak, though I’m not sure that’s going to wash at the hearing. Kassian is also coming off another recent suspension for the Matthew Tkachuk flap, which doesn’t bode well for the Oilers enforcer, either.

Though a lack of injury to Cernak works in Kassian’s favor, it’s the intent that is disturbing here. Had Cernak bent over even slightly when Kassian went to kick him, we could have seen a death on the ice – and that’s not hyperbole; he could have slit his throat. It doesn’t take much force for razor-sharp skate blades to do damage and Kassian should know that.

Excuses, excuses, excuses on the part of Kassian here.  It could have ended up much worse but thank goodness it didn’t.  This idiot Kassian should be give minimum 20 games.
