    Wasn't there ANY Capital willing to step in for Holtby? I know "third man in" used to be a much bigger deal than it is now, but c'mon - that was one of those times where you take the misconduct to protect your goalie.

    And yeah, that ref was a freaking coward.

    Why didn't the ref stop it?

    No he's not. He's the President of Hockey Operations for the Flames.

    Bush league by Emery and the ref. Can't say I'm surprised about Emery, though.

    I assume other than some behind the scenes fining the league will do jack squat about it. I'd be surprised if they throw anything at Emery. To be clear, I think Emery deserves to sit for a few games and an investigation done on why the ref let it continue but I have little faith in the league ever doing anything right.

    I'm sure he was told to go over there, there was only the Simmons fight going on at the time. No need for goalies.
    Goalie fights are cool. When both are willing. What Emery did was assault. those punches to the back of a defenseless guys' head aren't too far removed from what Bertuzzi did.
    I don't give two ***** what Emery said. If he really didn't want to fight Holtby and was forced to, he didn't have to throw haymakers to the back of the guy's head. He could have at least taken it easy. And if he was told to do what he did, coach, GM, and owner should all be heavily fined/suspended.

    This was just awful. Last I checked they stop the fight when one of the parties isn't willing to dance anymore or down on the ice. Glad Holtby still got the shutout. Emery really should be suspended.

    So your saying that he wouldn't take the G.M. job in Philly? I know I was just kidding, but he would jump at that chance

    What a dip**** move by the pillock Emery. WTF. Lengthy suspension, please.

    Also, from what I've seen, Downie didn't get his head bashed in a fight - he got injured while getting bashed into the boards/ice prior to the fight. Or am I missing something? I didn't see any hard punches landing properly...
