06:57 AM ET 11.12 | Rangers defenseman Marc Staal has not played this season due to concussion symptoms likely caused by a hit from his brother, Hurricanes captain Eric. With Carolina in town Friday to play at the Garden, Hurricanes coach Paul Maurice said don't blame Eric. "It was a clean hit, and his brother came back and played," Maurice told NHL.com. "To me, he's not the reason there's a concussion."

Didn't we cover this extensively a few days ago? Someone even brought up what their mother might think about it.

FN should really give those concussion stories a rest.

But Gionta is at fault for Reimer's whiplash!

Off with Gionta's head!

That's silly.

He's short enough already.

And Steckel is . . . . . . Oh never mind.

Hey Argos, the Baby Pens beat the Hershey Bears in OT in Hershey last night. Watched Ulf's little boy play defense for the Pens. He didn't look too bad. He did take a dumb delay of game penalty when he shot the puck way over the glass in his own zone.

Is he as big of an idiot as Ulf?

Fine.

I'll settle for Price's head.

Anyone else think Gionta not getting suspended was stupid.

I know, it was accidental. But several players have accidentally bumped another players head and been suspended under Shanny.



Mac got suspended for skimming Abdelkader's face, after pulling up, and after Abdelkader clearly dove.




Gionta's hit was directly to the head. Should have been suspended.

Now the Leafs have to get justice since Shanny didn't.

LOL - Looks like someone's rubbing off on you. :-)

Who's ready for the Hall of Fame class tonight?

If only Pat Burns got in, and instead of Howe it was Lindros or Andreychuk got in. Then it would have been an all-Leaf class.

But I'm still excited to see the Eagle and Killer tonight!

Will Rotten Ronnie send Brown or Rosie out to fight Price?

Brown maybe. Price it too tough, and way too quick for Rosehill.

I'm thinking MacArthur will take care of Gionta.

Gustavsson, since he isn't doing anything anyways and is just a waste, will take care of Price. Gustavsson must be a good fighter, cause he got the nickname the 'Monster' some how, and it is definitely not due to his puck stopping abilities. Plus he looks really creepy, and might give Price the creeps, so he will get an edge that way.

So what's wrong with this picture?
