    This was such an odd series of events, but I'm glad that he'll get a call or in-person hearing.
    I would be pretty pissed if someone speared me int he midsection.
    LGR!

    I mean, I don't see the difference between this and jumping over the boards to fight someone. He dropped his gloves and sucker punched a player in a defenseless position. Suspend him. There's no gray area here.

    Clarkson got 10 games for jumping over the boards to fight a while back. Give him that and call it a day.

    Should be 25 because this wasn't a fight, the player was defenseless, and fuck that noise.

    Call it the Bertuzzi Family Multiplier. Guilt by surname association.

    "We're thinking 2 to 5 games..."
    "But it's a Bertuzzi"
    "Fuck it. 25."

    that's the old school mentality that needs to be erased from the game.

    Really - it's two more games than I expected from DOPS. In fact, I didn't even expect a hearing for this, but I forget that there are certain (almost) automatic suspensions and without looking up the history, I imagine interactions with players on the bench and players in play are strictly prohibited, a la jumping the bench to fight someone.

    Yeah, Bertuzzi took his glove off.
    Before that, Calvert speared him.
    And before that, Larkin held Calvert's stick.

    So, like I said before - a very odd series of events, but not upset about the outcome.

    I know Matt Calvert's name for one reason and one reason only...

    LGR!

    I watched the TSN video again.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8_z4MN_-us

    Calvert gets hit by Greene and his stick flails a bit and touches someone on the DET bench.
    #27 and #41 grab Calvert's stick immediately as Calvert is regaining control over himself.
    Calvert looks back at the bench and sees Bertuzzi (to the left of #41) who also sorta has his hand on Calvert's stick, but looks like he wasn't even aware of what was happening between Calvert and #27 and #41.
    Calvert reacts and spears Bertuzzi. It wasn't until this point that Larkin was even involved, but he helps hold Calvert while Bertuzzi punches.

    I'm completely fine with 2 games for Bertuzzi, but I'd also give Calvert a fine for the spear.
    LGR!

    I don't understand why a spear to someone on the bench isn't suspendable, if the retaliation is.

    Did anyone notice that high stick to Vesey in one of the recent games. There was no call (of course), but the replay show the guy intentionally speared Vesey in the face. It was either the Jets or Caps game iirc.
