  1. Mmmmm, discipline hearings. Brings back such good memories of elementary school.

  2. I think the ice did more damage than Rome did.

  3. … If Aaron Rome’s name were spelled “S-c-o-t-t S-t-e-v-e-n-s”, we wouldn’t even be having any discussion about a disciplinary hearing. The talk would be more like “Hey – man up, Princess Horton. Keep your head up next time.”

    • ha ha. I actually thought about the Scott Stevens hit the moment I saw it. I haven’t gone back and looked at it but was it that late? The checking part of the game was also very different back then. Stevens wouldn’t get away with a significant amount of his hits.

  4. Rome got 4 games (carries over to 2011-12 season if the finals only goes 6 games).

    The “significant injury” was cited as part of the reason for the suspension.

    What happens from here on out if there’s another Chara/Paciorety type hit (i.e., sever injury but indeterminable intent)?

    All-in-all, I think it’s a good decision.

  5. Question: Due to the suspension, if Vancouver wins the cup, does Rome get his name on it?
