I mentioned it yesterday, but didn't get a chance to discuss: Ryan Garbutt of the Dallas Stars has been suspended for 5 games for his dirty, flying headshot on Dustin Penner during Sunday's Stars-Ducks game. Here's the suspension video from the NHL:

It was pretty textbook charging and a blatant leaping headshot, and there's no other way to look at it. Every angle shows the same disaster. There wasn't a single analyst, writer, or even objective fan that said otherwise.

But there were a lot of stupid fans that said otherwise. Any time someone is suspended, no matter how obvious it is to everyone else that a suspension was called for, there are always a bunch of vocal idiots who aren't familiar enough with the game who decide to speak up regardless.

Below, I present to you a sampling of these idiots, without comment. The blinding ignorance speaks for itself.

Okay, that's enough of that.

Hopefully no one tries to behead anyone tonight in Ottawa, no matter how clean Dallas fans think that type of thing is.

Gameday Prediction

The Ducks fail to convert on 7 consecutive 5-on-3 man advantages, still win the game 4-1.

Classic Moment
