Garbage play. Hate when players use the stick as a weapon it gives the game a bad reputation.

Cash or Czech?

Can't believe after the fact he shrugged his shoulders like 'what did I do'?

Love it, don't see enough of it anymore. Kind of a lost art.

This, for that reason, he should get the full amount of games he is possible for. He thinks he did nothing wrong, its a scumbag move.

I spear people all the time. If you want to throw a hit in a no-checking men's league game, that's cool. I'm taking your nuts.

That's the spirit!



A guy at work here has a daughter playing Bantam AAA boys. She's 5' 90 pounds (Like you), she'll be at an ivy league school near you in 4 years, her Dad says she's the spearing queen of Canada. Boys won't touch her because they know they're getting speared in the nuts. It's great defence.

That's how the little folks have to roll.

If its not too much of a pain in the ass can someone post is as a .gif? Work network blocks all streaming video.

:tweet: @NHLPlayerSafety: New Jersey's Stephen Gionta has been fined $2,284.95 for spearing Ottawa's Mark Borowiecki.

There you go. Fined. Not suspended.

I could totally see myself swinging my stick, a la Chris Simon, when I watch certain games. Heck, even a reverse cross check when someone is on the ice (lifting the cross up/towards you from under their nose/jaw).

Sidenote, when I read the title of this thread, this is what I invisioned:

Now I wish Gionta's only response was "WHO'S NEXT!?"

That would be amazing. Could you imagine? At the next game the production staff would have to play Goldberg's theme when he hit the ice.
