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.

If good old Todd Bertizzi can contuine to play after trying to kill someone, why wouldn't Simon be allowed to return?

Simon should be out for the rest of the season, with a warning that 1 more offense (other than fighting) will mean a lifetime ban.

Good O'l Chris Simon. Here we go again!

This is a guy who got kicked off teams in the OHL. Heck, Ottawa 67’s legendary hall of fame coach, Brian Kilrea couldn’t control him! He should never have been allowed to play the game in Junior let alone in the NHL.

He has been a discipline problem and the poster boy for goonery everywhere his been at all the levels that he’s been at.

This guy has been given more lives than a cat.

He learned nothing from his previous seven NHL suspensions let alone all the Junior hockey suspensions.

His NHL Team mates say that he is “a great guy” and team mate “OFF THE ICE”.

I couldn’t agree with them more. Chris Simon does not belong on the ice, he should be kept “OFF THE ICE”, where he belongs because of what he does what he does “ON THE ICE”

His friends and the NHL should keep him where he does best. That place is “OFF THE ICE”, because he’s “such a great guy” there.

Banned for life.

regardless of where he comes from or what nationality he is .

It should have been a year! Wang and co. covered their backsides by having Simon go into "therapy". This sounds like they went for Colin Campbell's soft side before Xmas. What's next, permanent injury or worse from this guy?

Ban the bum!

Let him work at Tim Horton's and try this nonsense

well should be forever, he has had enough chances, the nhl justice is a joke!

someone will have to get killed before there are tougher penalties!

i dont like the way some people have played the race card here....the fact that simon is from the first nations community has nothing to do with his actions on the ice...
Paul, 2007-12-19 15:36:22

i believe simons suspension should"nt start until after he returns to the team....never would'nt be too soon!
PAUL, 2007-12-19 15:32:58

Suspend him indefinately and get this man some help! He obviously has a major anger-management problem.
