    Default Matthew Tkachuk At It Again

    That little dumb s*** was at it again last night in Toronto. Speared Matt Martin from the bench.



    If you come off the bench to engage in an altercation, it's an automatic 10-game suspension. I know the league won't do it in this case, but it's really not too much different. Given his recent history, gotta hope for 5.

    League needs to start not letting teams fill repeat offender players roster spots when they get suspended.

    You become a repeat offender and your roster spot gets frozen when you get suspended. So you get suspended and your team is forced to roster 19 players instead of 20 for X number of games.

    This would quickly stop this type of player behavior as team mates will start holding each other accountable.

    Only a matter of time until someone Bertuzzi's him.

    That POS only got a 1 game suspension for it, just announced. If this was 1980's hockey, that little **** would be getting his ass kicked every night.

    Yet, let me guess...

    "If Chucky was on your team, you would LOVE him! Stop hating!"
    That's probably all over every forum and social media platform right now, being repeated like a mantra by every Flames fan.

    And as I type this, I get the update from the NHL app: suspended one ****ing game.

    What a joke
    "And then scoring three goals on the power play to really shove it up their butts was really awesome." -Drew Doughty, January 2nd, 2018 @ EDM post-game quote.

    What were his past offences? As an isolated incident, yeah it's a turdy thing to do, but I don't think it was that bad, it seemed like just a light poke lol. 1 game sounds fine - again, not considering what he already did in the past.

    I like @mudfisher's suggestion though. Raffi Torres would be long gone from the NHL had the rule been like that. But I guess that could've put maybe a bit too much power into the hands of the committee.

    Perhaps somehow include the NHLPA/team Captains in giving them the ability to veto a decision that could be perceived as unfair/biased treatment.

    His past offences? Here are descriptions from a Decenber 7, 2017 article at the CBC website of the previous two suspensions . . . .

    Repeat offender

    Tkachuk is only two weeks removed from a one-game suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct stemming from an incident in a Nov. 15 meeting with the Detroit Red Wings.

    Late in an 8-2 loss against Detroit, Tkachuk jabbed Wings forward Luke Witkowski with the blade of his stick after Witkowski was escorted off the ice after a fight with Calgary's Brett Kulak. Unlike the Martin incident, Tkachuk was given a five-minute major for spearing and a game misconduct on the play.

    "You can play with an edge, for sure. I think he's an effective player. I think he's a good player," said Martin. "When you're sitting on the bench or the situation in Detroit … it's not really necessary. I don't think it's a good hockey play by any means"

    Tkachuk was already considered a repeat offender after receiving a two-game suspension for elbowing L.A. Kings defenceman Drew Doughty last year in his rookie season.
