Chris Simon has received the longest suspension in NHL history - again.
The New York Islanders forward was banned 30 games by league disciplinarian Colin Campbell after Simon stepped on Pittsburgh's Jarkko Ruutu during a game over the weekend.
What do you think should happen to him? Have your say in our forum.
Simon banned for 30 games
By the way, what buffoon would characterize Brashear and Laraque --- especially the latter --- as thugs? Laraque couldn't be less like that. I remember a game a couple of years ago when he and Fedoruk were going at it. Fedoruk slipped and nearly fell to the ice, and Laraque immediately backed off and waited for the officials to step in. He could have pulled a Bertuzzi on Fedoruk if he'd wanted, but not only does he understand the code, he's aware that if he ever got too carried away, he could kill somebody.

Jimmy didn't need your help to get other posters to hate him.

I just recalled that gruesome sight from memory. Not a good one. Skates are very sharp.
I don't think there is a hockey player out there that is not appalled at the thought of using a skate as a weapon.

I know your reading skills arent the best but what I said was, Simon's skate blade COULD have cut Ruutu's muscle/ tendons.
I guess you forget what happened to Clint Malarchuck when he was playing net for the Sabres. A forward slid into him and cut his jugular vein. Every time his heart would beat you could see blood squirting out. I guess to you that isnt a serious injury eh idiot. Ohh yea it did end Malarchucks career. He very easily could have bled to death if the Sabre's trainers didnt get to him as quickly as they did and rush him to the hospital before he lost too much blood. They no doubt saved the mans life.

I missed the memo on when you were drafted by an NHL team and when you will make your debut ? LMFAO

If you played ice hockey you would know how sharp a skate blade is you numb nut. Since you dont and all you play is road hockey let us men comment on these things and you can tell us about how you score 2 goals a game playing against 7 and 8 year olds in your neighbourhood LOL.

His penalty?? Easily should have been the remainder of the year.
