If I'm a guy like Vanek I'd be pissing myself that first rematch.
    Not to mention he jumps Kessel when Orr and McLaren are both out of the lineup (both of whom you can bet will be in the lineup the next time they play). Punk move by Scott that ended up causing his goalie to get lit up by Bernier.

    Default Ex-King Bernier drops the gloves with Miller!

    And this is only Pre-season! Huge brawl last night in Toronto, had to share it with you since it involves one of our Ex-Kings

    I seem to be in the minority on the internet, but I really think what Kessel did was far worse. Using your stick as a weapon 3 times (first one is kind of understandable, but still not good), the last two being while the other guy is tied up with other players or a linesman, is far worse to me than a bigger guy going after a smaller.

    At worst, Scott is an instigator in this case. Kessel, on the other hand, has 2 clear attempts to injure on a guy not facing him.

    Kessel is a F-ing B****! 2 two handed slashes with the glove still on and a spear later! That's some really weak crap right there!

    The tattoos should have been your first clue ; ).
    As long as he protects that pretty face, I'm lovin' it.

    Not true. Kessel received a match penalty, and with that will face an automatic call from the league.

    Honestly, I think the NHL is going to see it exactly as you describe. You're pretty much correct. Scott violated "the code", as they are discussing on TSN today. But that's certainly not suspendable by the NHL brass. swinging your stick like Kessel did, however, certainly is and will be dealt with.

    The punishment for Scott, if any, will have to be at the hands of the Leaves if they choose to do it or not, that's up to them.

    I don't know if my assessment of Bernier's motivation is off or not, but I'm thinking he engaged Miller as a way of bonding with his new teammates and getting the Leaf fans on his side. A preseason line brawl -- especially one where he already got in 50 minutes of play -- is the perfect time for him to make that kind of statement.

    As to Kessel going lumberjack on Scott, yeah, it does not reflect well on him. But I will say in his defense -- and as a caveat, I'm not a fan of his by any means -- Scott is a huge motherf, who IMO was being a bitch himself for going after a skill player with no history of fighting. I ask any of you who are chiding Kessel for his actions . . . if you're six foot tall, and a guy who is a known and experienced pugulist and stands 6'8" and weighs 270 pounds is coming after you, what are you going to do, eh? Easy to say one thing sitting behind a keyboard; entirely another to be on the ice, having someone that much bigger than you coming after you with the intent to do you harm.

    Default Jonathan Bernier traded to Toronto, then gets in fight!

    Nobody is gonna be able to kick Scott's ass. That guy is literally a monster. He rag-dolled Westie like there was nothing to it.
    Kessel was fearing for his life and I don't blame him. BTW that last "spear" by Kessel was barely a tap..

    You are right in that it is easy. But I'm not in the NHL. I'm not assuming the risk by choosing a profession I know on a nightly basis could result in a fighting with a 6'8" guy. Kessel did. That is part of his job.

    You know what's not? Two-handing a guy your teammates are fighting. Then spearing him when he's tangled with a linesman. Bitch move, both of them.

    And it's funny that you mention intent to do harm, because, while fighting is a well known part of the game, the ONLY thing Kessel's actions could be conceived as is intent to do harm.
