Sens Underground Forums > Will Ovechkin be suspended?

Just saw Ovechkin's knee on knee hit. It sure looked blatant to me. It will be interesting to see what the NHL does. Probably nothing or maybe a slap on the wrist at most.

Saw the following on gasp a Leafs blog (via a Sens blog mind you). Despite the point of origin, I found it pretty funny:

My bet is that Ovechkin won't be suspended because he got hurt on the play and left the game while the other guy came back at some point.

I haven't seen the hit though... does anyone have a Youtube link?

as for the hit, i' haven't seen such a deliberate knee since marchment retired. if he doesn' get suspended for that, he never will. Cherry is going to have a field day with that one.

He should be suspended... at least for 2 games. But we all know he won't get anything... 'cause... well... he's Ovechkin.

It's kinda funny. Ovechkin plays that hard style all the time, he tries to take out Gleason's knee, and ovie gets the absolute worst of it. If you slow it down, looks like it could be a pretty bad MCL strain. Poetic justice i guess you could say.

so he gets 2 games but he'd have likely missd them anyways with the injury. but now, he's on the books and they can't ignore him anymore.

I don't like it.

When are they going to get these GOONS like Crosby and Ovechkin out of the league? They are ruining the sport.
