MacMillan: "I'm just frustrated"

Talked with Brad MacMillan this afternoon and this is how he says the fight with Bloomington's Matt Spiller went down.

``I was around the crease, the goalie gave me a shove and I pushed him back. Spilllers did what any defenseman would do, and I was just looking to give my team some kind of spark so it was like any other fight.

``I got the helmet off, saw my opening and threw a punch, and by the time I realized his helmet was stuck on my hand, I shook it off. I wasn't intending to use it as a weapon, I was just throwing punches. As soon as I saw it, I flipped it off.

``What people don't get is it happens so far, it's just a primal reaction. Half the time the guys in the fight don't know what is happening until afterward. I only thought I swung the one time and I don't even think I hit him, but the ref said the intention was there. I'm frustrated because somebody is trying to tell you what they think your intention was when you know differently.

``There was no intention there. It happened, and even Spiller and I were joking after the fight. We were laughing about it. I told him sorry about the helmet, and he said it was no big deal.''

I buy it.

The million dollar question is,,,,,,will BJ buy it? He is a tool.

Perhaps if Jones talks to everyone involved Mac will come out of it OK. Guess we'll know tomorrow....

If Mac is suspended with an intent to injure cited after Spiller is fine with it I'm going to have a problem with it. Did Shaf get a a call from Jones after Lawmaster clearly intended to injure him?

Consistancy Jones, consistancy....

You hit the nail on the head JM....or is it the helmet on the shoulder???

Either way, you are correct sir. With all the suspensions dished out this year....looking back on Lawmaster.....how did he get nothing???
