DP violated the rules. He should be banned from hockey. Ignoring this indiscretion gives a bad example to the youth of America.

DP didn't do it on purpose. He's not some kinda sneak. This is the first violation he has had out of all his seasons and if he was suck a sneak why would he call it in? Give these guys a break their normal people they make mistakes. I'm sure you've made plently in your life time so back off.

Banned from hockey? Please tell me your kidding. He wore pads that the NHL told him he could use. The NHL made a stupid mistake and I applaud them for making the right desceion and not suspending him.

The guy from Bellmore is a Rags fan that just comes on here to post stupid stuff. He does it constantly.

Ignore him.

Typical bad reporting from Newsday. Hey Katie sweetie, welcome to journalism, here's a tip: next time call the NHL office and find out why they didn't suspend him and why they made him take the pads off in the first place. Your shoddy reporting leaves the reader with just one side to the story. Wow, you're not too good at your job, which means you will really fit in well at Newsday.

I doubt DP is stupid enough to try and sneak one by the league.
They should fine ITECH for the confusion. They're overpriced anyway.

The Rags fans think their so smart and cute Potvin beat your wife, Phishstyx; which I personally like, but the Potvin suck has to be the studiped chant in pro sports. The check on Ulf Nillson was as clean as they come and the guy broke his ankle. Rag fans think if they had him they would have won the cup in 1979. The guy was maginal at best. I have one thing to say to you fagot west village rump rangers fans OH LA LA SASSON, OH LA LA SASSON, OH LA LA SASSON.

Yes, I am very serious. He bought the pads at Dick's Sporting Goods ten minutes before the game. They were "cheater pads" - we've all used them at some point, who is kidding who!

I've not been to the Coliseum for a while. Do they still do the Chicken dance and chant "the rangers suck" ?

I think only when they play the Rangers.

More often they do the "if you know the Rangers suck clap your hands" one.

DP is so overrrated bottom line. The guy should just be made a defenseman because all he likes to do his handle the puck.
