Pigtails!!!

Usually don’t get up on the soapbox, but the NHL MUST show more consistency when they punish players. In 2016, Andrew Shaw was fined $5,000 and missed one playoff game for using a homophobic slur. The other night, Ducks captain, Ryan Getzlaf, was fined $10,000 for using a homophobic slur, but NO suspension. Here is the exact quote from the NHL, “for directing an inappropriate remark toward another on-ice participant during Thursday’s Game 4 against the Nashville Predators.” What up Colin Campbell? Why not a suspension for Getzlaf as well? A $10,000 fine? REALLY? Getz makes $50,000 and change EVERY STINKIN’ DAY OF THE REGULAR SEASON! Yea, FIFTY LARGE! EVERY DAY! Sorry for screaming, but fining Getzlaf $10,000 is equivalent to a Starbucks for you & me. Apparently, he’ll play in game six tonight down in Nashville. After watching the Predators throw down and skate off with a 3-1 win AT Anaheim in game five, WITHOUT their leading scorer, Ryan Johansen, and their captain, Mike Fisher, they look like a team of destiny. This team WANTS IT! Gonna drop half a Benjamin on the Preds to close out the Ducks. However, if Kelly Clarkson sings the National Anthem, we WASH the wager.
