Ryan White has been dealt a five-game suspension by the league for his thump to the noggin of Flyers defenceman Kent Huskins.
I have no problem with this. Firstly, it’s a head shot situation, which is unacceptable considering the amount of concussions we see.
And secondly, the Canadiens don’t need a player who can lose his mind at times, take idiotic penalties, and cost our team.
Yes, the Habs could use the toughness. But someone who can be both tough AND smart. It’s not too much to ask.
Not to mention he has one point in 25 games.
