Moved a lot of the comments on bringing in forwards to the other thread, too hard to separate out some of these things.

Derek Mackenzie from Columbus was suspended 3 games for boarding.

First time offender gets three games While a repeat offender like Lupul get's a fine? Shouldn't be surprised anymore but I'm surprised nothing's ever been brought up by the players union.

Why would it? They see what team's the players play for that get suspended and the ones that don't.

True. I'd still like to see a "set limit suspension" system based on the type of offense and player's prior history being added in. League would still have power of modification but have more then just Shanny decide on punishment. Example: first offense-1 game suspens
second offense-3 games
third-5 games
fourth 10 games

And so on and it's adjustable if the league feels it's necessary.

Derek Dorsett from the Rangers broke his fibula and is out 4-6 weeks.

Rangers acquired Daniel Carcillo from the Kings for a 7th round pick.
Good replacement for Dorsett. I've always liked Carcillo and think in the right system he can start producing offensively.

Probably has to do with the Miami Heat dynasty being built on south beach. It's not that fun to watch a sport if the same 4-8 teams are always in the playoffs every year and one team keeps winning. Last NHL back to back champs was in the late 90's so it adds more unknown to who will be in the championship picture at the end.

I believe it. The NHL is a million times better of an experience

Growing up in Chicago, the Blackhawks were the toughest ticket in town with Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita. When a sports editor was asked why the Hawks didn't get more coverage his comment was that there are only 20,000 Blackhawk fans in Chicago - its just that all of them have season tickets.
