There is no sense overreacting to the Jarret Stoll one game suspension. I expected it. The NHL punishes results more than conduct or intent. If the NHL was, hypothetically, the local District Attorney’s office and Jason Demers took a gun and fired four shots at Ryan Smyth but missed, he would get a private reprimand while Jarret Stoll kicking a rock that ricochets and hits Ian White in the head causing a concussion would require state prison time. Such is NHL justice. Life goes on. I am pleased they are consistent with their incompetence. At least we can see it coming.

Oscar Moller is going to fill in the vacant roster spot. I sure hope we can win some faceoffs tomorrow, especially in our own zone. GO KINGS!
