Sens Marc Methot Out for Weeks because of Crosby Slash

Marc Methot’s finger injury will have him sidelined for weeks.

The Ottawa Senators defender finger was “shattered” on a nasty slash from Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby and part of his finger was severed.

Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk was on TSN radio and clearly upset with what had transpired. He suggested there should be a suspensions on players like Crosby for plays that result in injuries like this.

“You do anything that’s almost a certain injury and I think the only way to do it is you wipe the guy off the map,” Melnyk told TSN 1200. “Not one or two games, (but) 10. How about a season for a few of these guys? He takes my guy, I take your guy. That’s my attitude.”

“The guy that creates the injury should be sitting out; they should watch the games together for the rest of the season. That’s the kind of attitude I have. There’s no room for that.”

“We all know who he is, the guy is just a whiner beyond belief and you do this kind of stuff, I don’t care who you are in the league, I don’t care if you’re the number one player in the league, you should sit out a long time for this kind of crap.”

The Senators, who went to overtime against the Penguins, are now within one point of the first-place Montreal Canadiens.
