My Thoughts On Bobby Ryan.

This is why the Rangers have these assets, to make moves when they are ready…and they are ready, now. I’ve...

Brendan Shanahan Makes Right Call in Suspending Max Pacioretty, Any Outrage in Montreal Unwarranted

There will be outrage in Montreal. Or should I say more outrage. After all, self-righteous indignation seems to have become the Province of Quebec's primary export these days. But Canadiens fans don't have much of an argument against the three-game suspension handed down to Habs forward Max Pacioretty on Monday night for his illegal hit to the head on Pittsburgh's Kris...

Max Pacioretty hits Kris Letang in the head.

Montreal Canadians forward Max Pacioretty has a phone call from Brendan Shanahan on Monday, I am going to say that Pacioretty gets a one - two game suspension for this hit on Letang.
