Enemy territory: Five For Howling

Sometimes, it can be hard to remember that it is still only the preseason. Sometimes it is far too easy. Constant reminders that we have lost all 3 of our preseason games so far obviously doesn't help. We try to brush it away with the fact that preseason has no effect on playoff seeds.

But then, we get the other side: suspensions. Dale Weise and Zack Kassian both had meetings with the NHL discipline committee today for bad things they did against the Oilers the other night. Weise got suspended for the rest of the preseason, while Zack got the rest of the preseason plus 5 regular season games. There was also the brawl in Toronto last night between the Maple Leafs and Sabres, where David Clarkson got an automatic suspension and Phil Kessel also might have got in trouble. As it turns out, the preseason can matter more than we care to think about.

The Canucks host the Coyotes tonight. Coconuts go!
