Saturday evening at the end of a game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New-York Islanders, Chris Simon of the Islanders had something in store for Jarkko Ruutu.
The sneaky Simon took advantage of a slip and fall of Ruutu going back to his bench to give him a shot to a leg using his own skate. Luckily enough, Simon partly missed Ruutu's leg and hitted the boot of the skate, avoiding a potential serious injury.
Yesterday, Simon had a meeting with the Islanders owner Charles Wang, the general manager Garth Snow and the team head coach Ted Nolan. They all came to the conclusion that Chris Simon needed help. I totally agree with this conclusion. Chris Simon needs serious psychological help.
The NHL will probably suspend Simon this week. This will be the 8th time that Simon will be suspended for his disgusting actions on the ice. His last one costed him a 25-games suspension for hitting Ryan Hollweg to the face with his stick towards the end of last season.
My opinion is that the league should definatly ban Simon from NHL action. The league and the game of hockey don't need a dirty and sneaky player like Chris Simon. An example should be given.
How many games should Simon pay for this? The NHL will give us an answer this week.
