The Calgary Flames Tried to Pull A Quick One On The Edmonton Oilers with this appeal

In response to Ramus Andersson's dirty hit on Columbus Blue Jackets Patrik Laine, the Calgary Flames appealed his suspension for four games.

After the hit, Andersson appealed his decision with hearings on the 21st and 23rd.

RASMUS ANDERSSON IS A BUM ABSOLUTE GARBAGE OF A PLAYER




NHLPA and Calgary Flames representatives attended the meeting, and the union requested that the NHL reduce the suspension to three games.

Andersson could have played in the Heritage Classic if the suspension had been reduced to three games, which had no bearing on Gary Bettman's decision.

Are the Flames and NHLPA really using a spectacle of a big game to reduce the sentence of someone who injured another player?

In Commissioner's ruling, Bettman says upcoming Heritage Classic was given no weight in argument to reduce Andersson's suspension.

should not be asked to create or enforce a standard that distinguishes between the relative importance of regular season games.»


They think we're clowns, don't they? We will be able to enjoy the Battle of Alberta free of elbows and Andersson.

Bettman stated that the NHLPA contended to reduce Andersson's suspension to 3 games, which would've allowed him to play in the Heritage Classic against #LetsGoOilers on Sunday. Bettman stated that he took no weight in the significance of games Andersson would miss when determining his ruling for suspension length. #Flames
