Mario was right

When he called on the league to change the way they are suspending players, all the media pundits took shots at him as well as the bloggers. Yesterday was the comeback of Gillies to the Islanders after serving a suspension for 9 games. Guess what he did, once again, he delivered a hit to the head to a Wild player. Was ejected from the game. Some will try to excuse this action, by saying he was "standing up for one of his teammates that had been hit before". I disagree with this, Mr. Gillies is on the ice for the sole purpose of hurting people, if he wanted to "stand up" for his teammate, he could have done it face to face withe other player, not in a cowardly fashion. The Islander's organization, which we all know is in the gutter, sadly. This is due to years of mis-management, they have a nucleus of talented players, but in their desperation to sell tickets they are employing this thugs. Case in point, their latest add, that was being shown during last night's game, they were showing a clip of a fight during the recent infamous Pens-Isles "game ". How many tickets does Mr. Gillies help to sell. Cheap shots, and shots to the head, should carry an automatic suspension. No matter who it is. A repeat offender like Gullies should have a harsher penalty, maybe even not allowed to play for this season. The organization, in this case the Islanders, should have a draft choice taken away. This is what Mario was talking about, the actions of Gillies (sadly) proved him right.
