    First of all, let me start by saying it was bad.

    Having said that, am I the only one thinking this wasn't anything unusual? We see guys punching other guys all the time when they're down. This one just happened to hurt someone. Why aren't we all outraged when this happens almost every night? If you want to suspend him, then suspend him. But not calling out others for plays similar to that is stupid. The Neal hit for example could have had an ugly outcome. Is he less of a jackass because Marchand wasn't hurt?

    Lifetime suspension should be considered.

    For me it was the pre-meditation of Thornton skating over to the scrum, grabbing an unsuspecting Orpik from behind, Thornton then extended his own leg forward while then tugging on the back of Orpik pulling him down and causing him to fall as a result of Thorntons leg in which he purposely placed behind Orpik...that is where any form of "outrage" lies for me with this incident. Neal is equally a jackass, as his intent was pre-meditated as well, Marchand just happens to be an idiot, so I carry less outrage for that one. :oP

    I have my feelings on the way things should be and how the league should handle them. Suffice it to say I have little faith the league and I will ever see eye to eye on these matters.

    Neal should get at least 5 as well. Knee to the head of a guy on the ground?

    Orpik is out of the hospital and will travel with the team back to Pittsburgh so, he sounds like he's OK.
    Nothing official yet though.

    Word at this time is that he got knocked out.
    That's why he didn't move.

    Thornton sounding remorseful in post-game interviews but, **** him.
    He should be done at least 20.

    That was disgusting. Neal should be gone 10+ and Thornton half a season, minimum. Neal clearly sees Marchand flat on the ground and deliberately skates into him to hit him with his knee. Thornton is always going to enter a scrum after the whistle but to go after Orpik (who is doing nothing more than jawing at his teammate) with a slewfoot and punching him while he's down and vulnerable is pathetic. The league should make an example of him, skip the whole breakdown of the play by Shanahan and simply say this kind of crap isn't tolerated in the NHL and ban him for half a season or more.

    The premeditation though is not unlike what we see all the time. Every time a star player is hit, there is revenge. Remember how people praised Darren McCarty after he nailed Claude Lemieux? I'm not saying it's right. I'm just saying that this isn't all that different and it's either overreaction, or underreaction when it happens with no resulting injury.
