Found April 16, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
I am surprised by the NHL's announcement of TWO hearings for James Neal tomorrow morning. Not because he doesn't deserve a suspension for his blindside runs at Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux, but because the league did not suspend Shea Weber for his own incident earlier in the first round of the playoffs. But Neal is a repeat offender under NHL rules, with a suspension in 2009-10 and a fine e...

Eklund: "Are you OK with this?" (just the playoffs or is respect completely dead?)

Shanahan will decide on three possible suspensions today. We have already seen one player suspended and many feel Shea Weber should've been suspended. We haven't even played game three of the opening round of playoffs yet. What is going on? Is this just the intensely of the playoffs, eye for an eye stuff? Or are we just seeing a total lack of respect taken to the next...

We’ll Watch The White Doves Go, Bubba. That’s What You See In Houses of the Holy.

It’s a 5-game series now, Bubba.  Three of those games will be at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena.  It’s dirty and the stairs are sticky.  Working people go there and they drink cheap beer sold expensively. You have Vince Gill with a stupid t-shirt, we have a statue of the greatest hockey player in history.  You have two skanks taking stupid pictures pretending to be Shea Weber...
