A Penalty Breakdown of the Trudeau/Brosseau Benchclearing Brawl

884850Things heated up between the Liberals and NDP when Grits scoring captain Justin Trudeau had an altercation with fourth-line Dipper, Ellen Brosseau.  Players spilled from both benches to join in the fray.

Now that the refs have broken things up, this is how the calls should break down: no suspensions, though there should be plenty of time in the sin bin.

NDP: two minutes for interference (you can give this to any one of four MPs running that pick play at the blue line), two minutes for delay of game (bench minor), ten minute misconduct for unsportsmanlike conduct (bench penalty); ten minute misconduct for unsportsmanlike conduct (Mulcair), two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct — diving (Brosseau); Liberals: two minutes for charging (Trudeau), two minutes for holding (Trudeau), ten minute misconduct for unsportsmanlike conduct (Trudeau).

No penalty called on the elbow, which was incidental contact.

Game on!
