Caps don't play until Thursday so sometime before then... I'd suspect late tomorrow.

He'll probably be listed as day to day until they can't hide it anymore, assuming he's badly hurt of course.

Here! I want Ballard here! Ovechkin knee-on-knee hit and Ballard's stick swinging on Vokoun - Page 2 805406

Would they seriously trade him because of that? That would be ridiculously stupid, IMO. It sucks, he didn't mean to do it, it was done, move on.

Now as far as what Ovie did, that was just plain old dirty. His suspension should start as soon as he's healthy to play, not before that.

Psychologically, what do you think would happen to the guy if he were traded because of this?

Not much, it was a mistake and this, IMO, will probably help him become a better player by lerning the ability of controlling your emotions. It's not like he hit someone in the face with his stick or cut someone with their skate.

Just got a text from TSN...

Ovechkin suspended 2 games for his knee-on-knee hit.

Wow. They did it.

GOOD! It's about freaking time he pays for doing something so stupid.

They need to make an example of him for sure.

Do you know if he's good to play? I'm thinking more and more that he faked his injury.

I guess we'll find out soon...

Thing is, he probably would have missed 2 games (if not more) being injured. They should have waited to see if he played the next two games before making their decision.

Doesn't matter, as long as he gets the message.

They usually have to issue a decision before the next game.

Could have been an even stronger message.

Ovechkin is my favorite player in the league, but he's been running around a lot. He seems to not have learned anything from taking out Gonchar (should have been suspended then, IMO).

I think if you give him 5 games the downgrade on the physical play would be too much

That was an atrosity. 5 games should have been the minimum...w/e, that rep is going to bite him big time. Take 5 years off his career if he keeps doing Dung like that...

Is it two games effective now, or when he is cleared to play?

Ovechkin knee-on-knee hit and Ballard's stick swinging on Vokoun - Page 2 270956 yeah could you imagine if they suspend him for games he can't even play in? They might...he just forks over the dough...

If he doesn't end his own career, someone will do it for him if he keeps up this play. What would people be talking about more - the guy that ended the career of Ovechkin, or the guy whose career was ended by Ovechkin?
