    Your Thoughts On The Raffi Torres Incident? I think it’s stupid it’s such a big deal, Raffi isn’t anywhere near being a racist he’s a great guy met him back in 2006 great guy.
    Machinhead people are just annoying.

      It is a double standard. Is it racist that there is a minority scholarship for black kids? If someone created a scholarship for only white people, the Supreme Court would probably rule it unconstitutional or something

      People nowadays are too politically correct. Everyone’s afraid to say anything or do anything about black people. One of my best friends is black, and I jokingly refer to him as my n-word, and he refers to me as his cracker. It is joking between us friends who have known each other practically since birth, but it always makes people uncomfortable

      I think it is just as bad that people get too touchy about this stuff, it creates just as much barriers as racism does. People need to chill out

      I’ve always thought he’s been a bit of a plug. But I’ve warmed up to him as the season went on. And since Wednesday night of course 😛

    Should Raffi Torres Be Suspended? His hit on Brent Seabrook just now had the announcers up in arms. He got 2 minutes for interference. I don’t know much about the legality of headshots, and I can’t tell if Torres hit Seabrook’s head or not.. Do you think he deserves a suspension, and if so, how long should he be out for?

    • Curator says:

      Classic Rule 48 violation. Seabrook was in a vulnerable position, principal point of contact was to the head. Not much debate there. As they say, the video don’t lie.

      OTOH, Seabrook had his head down, but the puck wasn’t near him (ergo the interference call). If Seabrook had the puck…good old fashion charging?

      Either he gets nothing, or he gets the book thrown at him. He came off a 4-game suspension for effectively the same thing.

      When I hear two former officials (Dan Marouelli and, god help me, Kerry Fraser) say the same thing (who are familiar with the rulebook and more importantly the process) I tend to believe them.

      My gut feeling is that they’ll hit him…3+ games. Stoll got a game for a hit on Ian White, Bobby Ryan got clipped two games for a stomp on a NSH player. Just saying.
