Chris Simon, Professional Thug

by Jes

Chris Simon is one of those 'puck-optional' players in the NHL. It doesn't matter what is happening with the puck, Simon's job is simply to inflict physical pain and suffering on the opposing team. Simon isn't out there to score goals, or do anything useful.

Last night, Chris Simon did a very dangerous thing and tried to scalp Jarkko Ruutu with his skate blade.

Let's not forget the vicious lumberjack chop on Ryan Hollweg after being hit, cleanly, by the Rangers winger.

... or this whack job on Sergei Fedorov ...

Given his past history, and what could have happened to Ruutu, Simon should get AT LEAST 20 games. Unfortunately, he'll get 1-2, at most, knowing how soft the NHL is.

1) As we wrote on our blog yesterday, the Islanders need to do the right thing BEFORE the suspension is handed down and out right release Simon
2) Saturday's play makes 2 incidents in a matter of months that were not only viscious and detestable, but were also stupid and selfish. Eliminating his team's chance at winning a game. Its time to say good bye to Simon, forever!
What can Simon possably offer to the game of hockey at this point? He is a thug...the guy we all hated in high school, the low IQ warehouse labourer we dreaded when we had to work for him. Nolan should be ashamed. He has protected and employed this marginal player his whole career because of their mutual native heritage. The good thing is that his "career" is now over. Gone from the Rangers and no one will hire him at this point. Good bye.
What do you mean, gone from the Rangers? He's an Islander.
