Should Simon be banned?
Wed, December 19, 2007

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.

I'm hardly a fan of the guy, especially given his episode with Mike Grier, but I'd lean toward bagging him for the rest of year and giving him another shot thereafter. But I would point out to him that any transgression, even a double-minor or parking ticket, and you're out of here. The sad thing is, Simon can play --- you could put him on your second line and he wouldn't look out of place.

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.

UUGGH thanks jimmy

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.

Merry Christmas Jimmy. Stress getting to you, have I succeded in getting all the commenters starting to hate you? In the event I was lucky enough, I'm not even eligible for the NHL draft for another seven years. Try to stay with the programme, I will keep you up to date american idiot.

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.

petey boy

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

petey boy aka wayne LOL

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.

Yeah, Simon's actions have NOTHING to do with his ethnic background. The guy's just an idiot who clearly has an anger management issue. To me, supplemental discipline can only be considered the way to go if there is a reasonable chance that it will modify future behaviour. Mr. Simon has clearly demonstrated that being suspended has had NO impact on his behaviour, and thus he should be removed from the league permanently before we have another Steve Moore incident on our hands. And the NHL brain trust wonders why the game isn't taken seriously in the US? Gee, you don't think garbage like THIS has anything to do with it, do you?!?

cut through his muscle and tendons. Now your a Doctor Jimmy? Being a Lawyer was not enough for you? How do you find all the time, doctor, lawyer, beer league player. Whats next candle stick maker?

It is sad that we have become to liberal in our views about minorities that we try and take a simple and maybe misplaced statement and try and deflect the action away from the real culprit, Simon! The article seems to want us to feel sorry for Simon. How about all the people he has injured over his career? This is a person who has learned nothing even with all the chances he has been given. In the real work a day world he would have been fired long before now. How many chances do our sports "heroes" get????

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