Blues Rat Maxim Lapierre suspended indefinitely for dirty hit on Dan Boyle
I am imploring the head of player safety Brendan Shanahan; please throw the book at this Rat, Blues forward Maxim Lapierre for dirty, bush league hit on Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle. Enough is enough. The good news is, Lapierre has an in person hearing with the department of player safety, which means the NHL is probably going to throw the book at him.
Sharks forward Joe Pavelski was less than impress with Lapierre and had this to say after the game. “Things like that happen, especially when idiots are idiots,” Joe Pavelski said. “Dan's a world-class defenseman, there's straight numbers [from behind]. There's guys in this league that will target that. It doesn't matter. They just go. It sucks.”
From past history, Boyle's a star and Lapierre is not. I am predicting a five-game suspension. I would love to see more.
