Isles Official's Quick Hits from Around the NHL

There have been some incidents from around the NHL that have caused the League Office to take action. Here are the two most recent indiscretions.

  • Jarkko "Jaws" Ruutu receives a 2 game suspension for a biting incident against Andrew Peters of the Buffalo Sabres last week.

  • Mikhail Grabovski of the Toronto Maple Leafs gets 3 games for shoving an official and doing his best impression of a baseball manager.

Thanks to Puck Daddy Greg Wyshynski for these two very well documented stories and some more interesting commentary on the different incidents that have been going on around the NHL. Just think back to the hit that Frans Nielsen received from Mike Mottau which received a two game suspension. Inconsistencies much?

You can only imagine if an Islander did it. They'd get 2 or 3 games and then the normal addition of 100% to the game total just for being an Islander.

I can only speak for what I see but the way the league and the officials have treated the Islanders it's certainly undeniable that fans would have that perspective. Unfortunately, I believe its true.
