Giordano Knees Koivu

Giordano gets 2 game suspension for kneeing Koivu. 

2 games are not enough for a player with history of these type of hits. It is a career ending hit just waiting to happen. Hip check, play the body, or a good old shoulder hit is fine. I have always disliked cheap hit players. Way to set an example as captain of your team.

He skated away afterwards just like he did with Cam. Like he knew it was a bad hit but “oh, deary me, it was just an accident.”

He’s got his “poor little misunderstood me” schtick down pretty good, but it’s obvious at this point.

He did it to Bobby Ryan too.  This is the season to punish him and take the suspension imo.

I'll be rooting for the Avalanche. The Flames will never win a Cup while a dirty player like Giordano is their Captain.

Bring back enforcers. We need someone to deal out on ice justice if this guy is going to win the Norris.

Play hard, check hard, be a pest. Just don't potentially end someone career with intentional head or knee hits.

Let's all agree that such a scumbag as Giordano needs to thoroughly BURN like the Calgary FLAMEOUT he is.

We don't necessarily need more enforcers. If a player feels like they want to take a run, they will do it. Take out a teams top player with a cheap shot? And all they have to do is take a few punches? Some will take that all day. Or in the case of Browns or Wilson's or ratface, turtle behind a ref.

Enforcers need to be removed from the player safety department. Obligatory "Parros is dead to me".

Very true points. I guess the best place to hit them is in the wallet.

I thought the non suspension call on Giordano's hit on Fowlers knee was a way to not show favoritism. Parros lost me when Cogliano was suspended. To this day I feel the contact was caused by Kempe turning blindly into the path that Cogs was going. Even after the contact Cogs kept looking and going in the direction the puck was going. Cogs had no history of hits to the head or dirty play.
