It's hurting the game. Boro came across and tucked his shoulder, led through the nerd's chest and his head got some of it because he was doing the 'Austin Mathews' - as in, he was looking down at the ice hunched over. I watched it in real time and I watched it in super slo-mo, it wasn't a penalty and it wasn't a suspension, but I mean...if you're gonna call that, what about the fool who hit Chabot head first into the boards? Is that not a 'head-shot' by definition?

This league is a mess when it comes to this.

I wouldn't be terribly upset if Gallagher and Carrier also got a game or two. The list of players not getting a suspension for bad hits on Ottawa players is long.

Quick had knee surgery. That leaves them Budaj and Campbell.

Nick Paul will finally get his last, best chance Smile

Haven't heard, yet, that Condon has been sent down to Belleville but I think Boucher had already said he'll be the backup tonight.

At least he didn't give him the 'A'.

Always nice witnessing the first coach of the season getting fired. But man, willie would have not been my first choice.

Desjardins is interim. It's an audition.

Weird...they are naming him the "interim" head coach. Not sure if there's a worse GM right now than Rob Blake though.

Wow, crazy. Quenville will be highly sought after...could wind up in LA for next season or somewhere else even sooner if someone else gets canned.

I bet someone cans their coach and quenville is magically hired the very same day.
he's sought after for sure. 3 Stanley cups is a hell of a resume.

although I've always wondered just how good he were. those cups winning team were stacked crazy right left and centre. how will he do in a different market? who knows...

I bet you Washington would have liked him to have been available this summer.

maybe Columbus or even Winnipeg show some interest if their teams don't pick up more steam.

Plekanec waived and then retires. How does that work? Why would he retire when there's still salary to be collected? Must have been a settlement of some kind.

He wants to go play in the Czech Republic or somewhere.

In the AHL though. It's Hoffman that's killing it unfortunately.

Hoffman was invisible and got two assists. That's pretty much his MO.
