give him 3 games

My lovely wife got me Sabres tickets for Christmas.  So when I looked at them, I couldn't think of a better game to go to.  Toronto Maple Leafs.  Sunday afternoon.  Second-last game of the year.  100 Level seats.  Oh boy.

And now?  Even more reason to look forward to the game.  Darcy Tucker can't handle getting hit by Mike Grier, so he goes after Jochen Hecht.  And takes him out.  For probably a couple weeks.  Yeah, nice, you prick.  I think Lindy Ruff's a little aggravated, you think?

But all Ruff talked about after the game was a third-period hit Tucker put on Hecht, who is now sidelined for several week with a left knee injury.

"We totally outworked them. It's unfortunate we have to be done in by a cheap shot at the end of the game by Tucker," Ruff said. "It was a knee on a knee hit. He goes after his head. He dives after; he's known as a diver. He couldn't take the hit that we gave him, so he knocks our guy out of the lineup for probably weeks. That's a joke. I want him suspended. I want him fined. I'll come to the hearing. I haven't called the league once. I'll call them 10 times tomorrow."

And…

"If you go knee on knee and take a shot at the guy's head at the same time, you don't deserve to be in the game," Ruff added. "We're going to the playoffs and you take out one of our best players because you couldn't take a hit. That's an absolute joke."

Ruff got louder as he spoke, yelling down the hallway toward Toronto's locker room.

"Suspend him. Get out the game. I've had enough of that. It's a joke!" Ruff said before storming off.

And in a shocking development…

Tucker wasn't available for comment.

Tucker's been an a-hole for years, so I would rather he gets a 3 game suspension and is required to dress and play against the Sabres on the 16th.  Lindy Ruff this morning said he really couldn't say much about what actions will be taken, but I'm guessing the Sabres players will have a pretty good idea what to do….

    Although what happend to Hecht was unfortunate (sucks, really), it was nice to see Lindy get fired up. Maybe this will stir up the team. They seem to have been going through the motions for the past few weeks.

    His line about Tucker not being able to take the hit was classic!

    I have a feeling that Andrew Peters will be in uniform and will be shadowing him…that assumes Dirty Tucker even dress for the game. It would be completely within character for him to beg out due to an injury.

    BTW: If you are looking for someone to take to the game, well…. 🙂
