NHL Happenings Update

Different issues to cover:

Rick Rypien, Vancouver Canucks, just received a six game suspension for his altercation with a fan. Plus, the Canucks organization were fined $25,000. Personally, I believe the six games is not enough. There is no excuse for physical contact between a professional athlete and a fan. Professional athletes are held to a higher level.

Martin Brodeur has earned his 112th career shutout. Kudos!

And...I'm still thinking about the on-ice fight between Pavel Datsyuk and Corey Perry the first week of this season. Datsyuk, a 4-time Lady Byng recipient, stood his own and then some. It was fun to see him take down the "bully" Perry. Perry and the Ducks have a reputation for being physical. The announcers stated that the Ducks try to take down foreign players. And..who else but the "gentle" Datsyuk? It's always entertaining, in my opinion, to see someone stand up against the Ducks. And...Datsyuk did just that. The repeat clips never get old. :)
