    Did anybody see this last night? One of the stupidest things I've ever seen in any sport, anywhere, ever.

    He's lucky he didnt seriously injure Vokoun.

    Here's the video...

    Saw this on the Sportscenter update after the monday night football game, I havent been watching the Panthers all that much so I dont know if there are any evident hostility between Vokoun and his team mates. Ballard is definitely an idiot here

    this video has a few better replays:

    YouTube - Keith Ballard Two Hand Slashes Own Teammate Tomas Vokoun

    Replays at 1:30...3:20....6:20

    I know things happen so fast, but that idiot looked square at Vokoun and did it. The announcers are saying he wasn't but just look at the helmet fins... they are pointed right at Vokoun.

    I dunno what this guy was thinking. I mean seriously... why even hit the posts? I was taught in Mites that you leave the posts alone, they arent yours they are your goalies!

    :hah: Patrick Roy woulda beat Ballards ass for doing that hahahaha

    That is extremely stupid and if I was Vokoun I would extremely pissed off at Ballard for this. It reminds of a play that happened to Halak while playing for Slovakia this summer.

    YouTube - Tomas Surovy slashes Jaroslav Halak

    What a fucking idiot.

    Question for you guys, do you believe the NHL has the right to suspend Ballard or should it be a team decision?

    He should get a suspension from the league for being an idiot and endangering his own teammate. I saw a replay of this on Versus the night it happen, the analysts couldn't believe it either.

    Well I'm glad that he's sorry about it, but it's still idiotic thing to do. He probably wasn't thinking but how dumb can you be to swing your stick at the net when the goalie will be standing there 95% of the time. I don't care if your angry, you just don't swing your stick, it's fucking retarded.
