Agreed. Comrie and Guerin have proven they don't belong on the PP. Comrie can't pass or stick-handle but only shoot and Guerin does his stupid no-look passes far too often.

Side note: I find it interesting that Chris Pronger did not get even a one game suspension for pulling a Chris Simon stomp move.

Thats because there is a double standard for elite players.

Comeau and Bergenheim are 2 of the only bright spots for them all year. Tambellini's shootout goal was sweet, but these 2 guys have been the most impressive so far.

What a joke - the NHL has the worst off-ice officials of any sport. The replay guys suck, Colin Campbell is pathetic whether he's still in charge or not. It was an obvious deliberate stomp and he gets nothing. Bettman is going over Pronger's house with kneepads tonight - or vice versa.

Yeah, they could have justified a short suspension because Pronger hasn't had Simon's history but to completely ignore it not only wrong but it's bad for the league. When I talk to non-hockey fans they ask about stuff like that. I have no answer for them and it just makes them laugh at the NHL. Simon's actions were a black mark but at least they were just the actions of one guy that got carried away. When the league ignores the same action from another guy because he is a star player then the league truly looks bad.
