There was a time when I thought Dan Carcillo was becoming a smart hockey player. It was after that whole "hey, let me sucker punch you, Matt Bradley" thing back in 2009 during Peter Laviolette's first game as head coach, and as that season progressed, Carcillo seemed to work on his discipline. I was impressed with the strides he made.
Oh, how naive I was. Behold, his latest idiot move from last night's Blackhawks vs. Oilers game.
Carcillo's yet to be suspended for the hit, but that's only a matter of time. The Flyers host the Blackhawks on Thursday night, and he'll probably be serving the first game of a very long suspension that evening.
