I don't think you scratch a guy for accidentally flipping the puck over the glass. The fourth line is not the reason the Sens are losing games.
I was actually specifically asking SD since he agreed with me on the severity of that penalty. You simply cannot "accidentally flip" the puck when you are killing a penalty. That puck should have been directed exactly where it needed to go unless it was deflected. It's not like he dove to knock it away and, thus, had little control over where it went. It was on his stick, on his forehand, I believe, and he was not bothered very much or rushed. This was not an accident but, rather, a mistake.
So you're suggesting they healthy-scratch Smith after he scored a goal and call someone up from the AHL and pay an extra NHL salary because Smith got a puck over the glass penalty?
If you think that this is something in the realm of possibility, you're nuts.
You're still not getting it -- I was asking what SD thought. It was a question. With a question mark at the end of the sentence instead of a period. You know, when your voice kinda goes up a bit at the end? Just like it did that time? Or this one? You know what I'm saying? Or do I need to give more examples?
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
