Interesting stuff from the Real Guy, aka Justin Cohn, on how much tougher IHL vice president of hockey operations Brad Jones has been on the league's miscreants this season.
As of March 1, the IHL had dished out a record 58 games in suspensions to nine players. Brad MacMillan got the heaviest slap, taking 15 games for leaving the penalty box to fight and tossing a linesman along the way. Ex-Muskegon cementhead Robin Big Snake got 12 games for similar actions in the same game.
Compare that to 2007-08, when 36 games were handed out to 21 players, and 2008-0, when nine players drew 21 games. The most disciplined team in the IHL in three seasons so far? The Komets, with 42 games in suspensions.
Here's the team-by-team tally for this season, as of March 1:
* Bloomington: Mike Liambas, 5 games.
* Dayton: Greg Labenski, 5 games.
* Flint: Armando Scarlato, 5 games.
* Fort Wayne: Tim Haun, 7 games; Brad MacMillan, 15 games; MacMillan, 1 game.
* Muskegon: Matt Krug, 5 games; Robin Big Snake, 12 games;
Robin Bouchard, 3 games.
