Sharks’ players react to Torres hit and pending disciplinary hearing

Sharks forward Raffi Torres will appear before the NHL Disciplinary Committee in New York on Thursday afternoon. As such, Torres will definitely miss Game 2 in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, the status of Jarret Stoll’s availability for the game remains unknown at the time of this post.

Regardless, San Jose defenseman Jason Demers thumbed out a tweet in support of his teammate on Wednesday… and soon thereafter, Logan Couture replied with his agreement:

 

Following the Sharks’ practice on Wednesday, here’s what a few of their players had to say about the situation…

Joe Pavelski also shared several thoughts of his own, including ‘(We’re) surprised he was hurt on it’ – watch the full quotes here…

  1. Mayor, I don’t recall you doing reactions to Brownie’s suspension or the news of his pending suspension when it came out. Was it because they were on a B2B in Detroit at the time?

    I checked the archives and I didn’t see anything about any of Brown’s teammates reacting.

    It’s worth noting that of course they Sharks are all going to think the hit was clean while the Kings will all think it’s questionable. I still hope Torres gets suspended but then again I’m a die hard Kings fan.

    LGK.

  2. Just sounds like they’d do anything to win.. Lie, Cheat, Steal….. Anything.. Oh and I forgot DIVE… I have to give it to Stoll, He didn’t flop around and try to draw a Major, Instead he got up and went to the Bench..

    He is and always will be a real Champion..

    There was no need for that kind of hit on that play, He didn’t try to get the puck. Sure looks like he sped up and hit Stoll Very hard, And he had plenty to decide not to HIT Stoll. He wasn’t playing the puck, He went after another player and now it will cost him, AGAIN!

  3. Bryson Otanjah says:

    The Sharks aren’t villains and Raffi wasn’t head hunting. Watch the hit, then watch it again… pause it, have a cigarette and then watch it one more time. Love my Kings, but I’m not going to be a part of the Salem Goon Trials just because this dude didn’t float few times. He went in for the shoulder and missed his intended point of contact. How many of us can say we always delivered the hit we had originally anticipated? If he gets two games because he did actually make contact with the head (intended or not) and because he’s dogged by his past, so be it. But if people are calling for 4 game suspensions or more… come on now.

    • Michelle says:

      After Brown was suspended because a player ran into his elbow, I think that Torres should at least sit a game. And because he’s Torres, probably 2. Stoll wasn’t standing tall when he was hit, he was leaning forward, and if Brown was called in for a hit to the head of a guy doing the same thing, we’d be up in arms about it being the players fault. Maybe Torres should have seen Stoll was in a vulnerable position and not gone for the hit, but this isn’t the jump to nail Hossa in the head he did last year.

      All that being said, I don’t care what Shark players say, and haven’t since Thornton said that Clowe’s play from the bench was the play of the year. Clowns.

  4. Todd S. Jenkins says:

    Torres might not be under this much scrutiny if he wasn’t inarguably a dirty player to begin with. He has enough talent that he doesn’t need to play the goon card, but he’s not intelligent enough to control himself and just play the friggin’ game like a professional.

  5. J. Aralica says:

    Brown is no comparison to Torres. Come on? I was at the game and really didn’t see much of the hit, it looked more of a collision. But when you see the replay, he looks quickly twice at Stoll coming with his head down and planted him an elbow with an upward motion, that shows it was intentional. The two quick glances makes him a premeditated criminal in my book. Torres’s history of dirty play is why he is New York. Anyone else, maybe just a minor, but they replay might have gotten someone in trouble too. The guy is a complete idiot and has no right to play in the NHL as his history of dirty play has proven.. The moron wore black face last halloween at a team party. Now if thats’s not an idiot, please tell me what it is.
