Title: Lehner could be in big trouble
Post by: Metalhawk on January 01, 2012, 04:22:14 PM
A suspension almost guaranteed for his actions towards the refs in last night's game against Syracuse.

Personally I don't see the "abuse of referee" penalty he received (I don't equate trying to break free with abuse of ref) but that's what he got and those are never taken lightly.

I was there and two things, first, who knows what he was saying to the officials and and second, what the video didn't show was that he actually came back onto the ice a minute later when it looked like he had gone to the locker room and went another round with the linesman. 

To be honest, he was very frustrated with the fact that is was his first game back after an injury and he was letting an awful lot of soft goals in.  When he skated down the ice he had a very determined look on his face although it was pretty clear the Syracuse goalie wanted nothing to do with him.  When Emery got an abuse of officials penalty, back in the day, he was originally suspended for 10 games however the Sens were able to talk it down to 6.  Being that tomorrow is a holiday, it will be a while before knowing what will happen to Robin. 

This seems to be the way of the B-Sens this season.  Just can't catch a break.   :shake:   After winning the Calder Cup, all we would like to see this season so far is the team crawling out of last place.... of the league.

He should get a few especially if he came back on the ice after being escorted off.  That should be 10 games just for that part. 
 
Why did he even come down the ice?  The other goalie wasn't involved and it wasn't like the Bingo Sens were all getting whupped.  It all looked fairly even to me.

To be honest, it looked like Lehner was in the mood for a good fight.  Or else he was looking for a reason to be kicked out of the game since I am betting he was going to be pulled soon anyway.

I agree with you on that one. It's one thing to struggle with an official if he's holding you back from helping a teammate who's outnumbered and getting whupped, but that was just a wee bit out of line. The other goalie clearly wanted nothing to do with him, and to go back out on the ice after getting ejected is pure stupidity. I was thinking in the neighbourhood of 10 games myself. We'll see what comes down from above.

Today Robin claims he left the crease because he saw the Syracuse goalie skate into the corner where all the action was taken place.  He said he didn't want one of his team mates to have to fight and extra man.   :paddle:   He also said he will not argue with any action the league takes against him and would come back "hungrier" then ever. 

We should know something in soon.  I only wish we had a better back up goalie to cover for him.  No "BARRY BARRY" down here this year I'm afraid.

Senschirp is reporting that Lehner got 3 games.

He just got the 3 games for abuse of an official.  They must have given him a pass on coming back on the ice because that`s an automatic 10 games.

There seems to be some conflicting reports going on. Classmate above says he came back on the ice, while other Bingo fans who were also there are saying he didn't come back.  :icon_questionable:

Throw him out of the league!   :sarcasm1


3 games is plenty for that. He probably would have got filled in any way.

  This was reported in our local paper.

"I (Lehner) heard some stories through the internet like I came back. That's not true. I don't remember me coming back on the ice or stuff like that, either". (Ed. note: When questioned about that idea again later, Lehner admitted he may have tried to come back and just lost that memory in the emotion of the situation. I am fairly certain he got a skate back on the ice before officials shoved him off for the rest of the night.)

I saw what she saw, he did attempt to return but only got half way back onto the ice.

Even Kleinendorst said he was surprised he only got 3 games.

So technically he didn't come back. Had the refs not stopped him he likely would have gotten much more. He owes them (or the one in particular) a nice belated Christmas present. :)

A fiesty goalie.  No problem here so long as he picks his spots.
