Patrice Cormier should be burned at the stake...

Recommended Posts

Cormier was a dirt bag at the WJC too. Why Hockey Canada didn't give Eberle the "C" is beyond comprehension. Anywho, yeah I saw that video on TSN - ugly, ugly hit. Cormier should get the rest of the season and playoffs at very least. Unfortunately, it probably wont hinder his career in the NHL. *cough* Todd Bertuzzi *cough* I hope your friend gets better quickly, I'm pretty sure the country is pulling for him.

Hey, NSbride2010 -- sorry don't know your RL name :) So Cormier got the rest of the season and playoffs, but more importantly; how is your friend doing? Any good news?

My FI and I are avid hockey fans. We've been following this story since it happened, before if you count our bitching about his similar hit in the Jr's tourny.

 

My thoughts and prayers are with your friend!

I'm glad your friend has gone home from the hospital, although not sure that means he'll be OK. My thoughts are with him, you and yours.

 

Frankly, blame the NHL. The same way the MLB promotes steroid use and then denies it in the face of media, the NHL promotes violence on the ice and then denies it in the face of the media. It all trickles downhill. But when what sells creates waves, the bigs deny their awareness and downright promotion of violence and substance abuse.

 

Do you have any links to petitions to change the rules or up the penalties for such blatant violence on the ice?? I'm sure if you post a link we'd be willing to sign and prevent future incidents.

Hope your friend is recovering! I remember the hit in the game against Sweden too. Mistakes happen, but 2 high profile hits= I don't think so.

Its a digrace they didn't give Eberle the "C".
Well even though he will still have an NHL career I'm sure he will always have the D-bag reputation. Look at Bertuzzi even though he is still in the NHL he is not the same and no one respects him. Although that was a whole different situation. I'm pretty sure he was charged and got a hefty fine and parole? I know he was sued for millions and settled. Hopefully Cormier will get some consequences besides the suspension.

I seen your friend on the news. I'm happy he is doing better!
