It turns out that Selke Trophy Favorite Taylor Hall laced 'em up for the game against Calgary last night. As much I liked to see his +/- shit the bed in a 4-1 loss, I'm still at a loss for words why he isn't at the very least cackling (or whatever else donkeys do) at an eight thousand dollar fine.
In case you weren't aware, I'm referring to yet another level-headed play made by Failure Fall where he lifted his battleaxe far above his shoulders and thundered down upon the back of Zbynek Michalek's calf.

kneehit. But with Clutter being such a dirty player, how could you NOT?
Let me remind you that Shanny and the Player Safety Joke-ettes are the fine men in control of the NHL's disciplinary action, *wince* so I wouldn't have expected much past 3
