Simon Says: ‘I’m Suspended!’

Oh man. Chris Simon, the human penalty magnet, picked up a two-day suspension for kneeing Sergei Zubov.
I didn’t see the hit, and obviously Simon says it was clean, but Simon is just perceived as a mean player. It really works against him with the refs. Interestingly, Calgary is setting Simon up in front of the net on their powerplay. They want his hulking frame as a screen/deflector. But the thing is, when you put Simon in traffic like that, he’s going to get into altercations. Altercations that could make him miss more games down the stretch.
