Kerry Fraser chimes in on the Nystrom-Letang hit

Did you see Eric Nystrom's hit on Kris Letang last night?

Mike Milbury did, and thought it warranted a 5-game suspension.  (Perhaps MM remembers some of the damage Eric's pop laid on him in 1980)  Mike engaged in a heated argument on the air with Jeremy Roenick last night.

Kerry Fraser, in his TSN column, offers his view.  http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=389235  Kerry concludes "I never thought the day would come that Mike Milbury and I would be on the same side of this issue but the day of reckoning has finally arrived."

Apparently, Brendan Shanahan disagrees with Milbury and Fraser.  Per a Darren Dreger tweet, "No discipline hearings for either Smyth or Nystrom for last nights hits. Warnings or fines possible."

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
