The NHL handed down fines to each player, but the amount of each penalty was not disclosed.

I’m a little bit surprised that there were no suspensions. A butt-end to the face is very dangerous. Osgood is lucky he isn’t being suspended.

And what Ribeiro did to Osgood wasn’t all too different from what Chris Simon did to Ryan Hollweg last season, which got Simon a 25-game suspension. Don’t get me wrong, what Simon did was definitely worse. But really the only difference was that Simon was more malicious and hit Hollweg in the neck/face. Ribeiro hit Osgood in the chest. You’re telling me that Simon should get 25 games and Ribeiro should get ZERO?? That’s incredibly inconsistent.

In my opinion, it is completely unacceptable to 2-hand chop someone no matter where you hit them. There should be no place for that in hockey and Ribeiro is lucky he won’t miss any games.

The NHL handed down a one-game suspension to the Sabres’ Andrew Peters this morning. This comes after he involved himself in an altercation that was on the ice while he was on the bench. Peters reached over the boards and punch Colton Orr multiple times. Both players were given 10-minute Misconducts. Peters was probably still upset over having his ass handed to him early in the first period (the altercation at the end of regulation is also in this video):

Peters suspension is without pay meaning that he forfeits $2807.49. That money will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Peters will not play tonight against the Penguins.

Colton Orr is waiting for the 2008-2009 schedule to be released so he can mark down on his calendar when Andrew Peters will receive his next severe beat-down.
