Last night Mathieu Joseph poked the bear. Earlier in the game Joseph took a run at Edmontons defenseman Kris Russel, the blocking shots king of the NHL.
Milan Lucic did not like this and well, here you go.
Now today it has come out that he will have a phone hearing with the NHL.
I’m not a fan of this. Did Lucic injure Joseph? No, he didn’t. Then why is he being potentially suspended? Yeah, it’s for sure a penalty 100% but IMO the NHL is just throwing around suspensions left and right at this point. Lucic stuck up for a teammate and to be honest held back on Joseph. How do I know that? Because Lucic is a bear of a human and if he wanted to hurt him he would’ve. What Lucic did here is stand up for a teammate, let the boys know that he will be there and he may have made Joseph take a dump in his pants. I’m not even making fun of him, that legit probably happened.
At the end of the day, if they suspend him its a joke. It seems every day that goes by there is a suspension that leaves myself scratching my head. I blame this on social media and the fact that people are now mentally soft, as Jordan Tootoo would say. If people don’t get there way they bitch and complain until someone is sick of hearing it and caters to their demands. Its disgusting. And always remember kids, when having contact with a bear, report to the fetal position and pray to god you come out alive.
