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
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.
