Tortorella suspended without pay for 15 days/6 games effective Tuesday. Hartley fined 25K. Re: the latter, Campbell pointed specifically at Westgarth taking the opening faceoff and effectively dropping the gloves before the puck had fully hit the ice as basic proof that, yeah, there was intent.
Side note, Bieksa was speaking to the media earlier and he said that as soon as he realized that Westgarth was taking the faceoff, he knew Westgarth was going after whoever was across from him so he offered to take Lain's spot (Lain was in his first ever NHL game), hence why he took the faceoff in the end.
Being the playoffs, that 25k is just a slap on the wrist compared to what Torts got, it seems.
Well, it isn't playoffs and actually, Torts was supposed to get much higher, and the 25K is actually quite "stiff"....for the NHL.
The NHL broke it down and basically said that Hartley intentionally picked his players to start a linebrawl off the opening faceoff. That's normally worth 10K - especially if they're annoyed by it. 25K's pretty good
Torts tried to barge into the Calgary dressing room. The obvious comparable is a player who chased an opposing player off the ice and down the hall who got 5 games back in '99. I'm guessing coaches aren't measured in games but days so throw a rough translation, 2 weeks makes a lot of sense.
So basically, Torts got the normal punishment for his crime and Hartley got a stiffer penalty than the going rate. I'm actually pretty happy with that ruling.
Thanks, that helps.
Roger Goddell: looking at porposals to eliminate the extra point. In one proposal, you get your 7 points by default but you may choose to gamble on of those points for a traditional 2 point conversion - you fail, you're back to six, you succeed, you up to 8 as before.
Does no one want to discuss MLK today?
I am curious as to all the hush-hush about James Earl Ray, the supposed conspiracy to assassinate . . .
I do expect to be alive in 2027 when all s/b declassified.
Sure, here's one of my favorite quotes:
When a Hollywood performer, lacking distinction even as an actor can become a leading war hawk candidate for the Presidency, only the irrationalities induced by a war psychosis can explain such a melancholy turn of events.
—Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967 on Ronald Reagan
Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin seized Martin Luther King Day as an opportunity to lob vague criticism at President Barack Obama.
"Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card," Palin wrote Monday on her Facebook page, after quoting from the civil rights icon's famous "I Have A Dream" speech.
I must have missed that "no playin the race card" part of MLK's speech.
More where that came from...
I believe those were his principles, Ty.
You're a true zircon of teh movement;-)
She's just a common roach in the garden of bigotry that is the GOP.
Who would have dared to venture that Sarah (Kill Him!) Palin would be silent on this day?
Stunningly, most black Americans still don't have much appreciation for Rnnny.
@collioureWe can discuss this
How conservatives hijacked “colorblindness” and set civil rights back decades
MLK dreamed of a world where race doesn't divide us — not one where we pretend it doesn't exist
I felt that way over here.
Racist in three different ways.
Behave yourself on the new upcoming MMR.
Do NOT race bait or you WILL be poffed.
A zircon is an incredibly resistant zirconium oxide crystal used to do concordant U-Pb radiometric dating. Common as hell. Forged in hell. Tells us a lot about the environment it was part of. Soooooo....
zircon - common, but shiny
environment - Libertarianism
