  • Report: Thornton looking at a 15 games suspension

    Just heard on SNet that the number of games rumoured to be Thornton suspension is 15 games.

    Nothing confirmed yet but that sounds about right..more would be better.

        Can I appeal his spot in the NHL?

            Only reason they are appealing is because the PA has to try and create a precedent. They wouldn't be doing their job as player's reprentation if they wouldn't try to get the infraction reduced. Pretty sure they already know they won't win that case but they have nothing to lose at this point. That said, I think he should have gotten more than 15 games so I hope they don't come back on that decision.

              Agreed, and I highly doubt they'll come back at all on the suspension.

                I hope the arbitrator (if it gets that far) increases the suspension.

                  Is that really a possibility? I'm with you if so!

                    The arbitrator does have the ability to increase the suspension. However, I would imagine the likelihood of that happening is pretty slim.
