Go back and watch the hours of suspension videos produced by the NHL this season. Almost none of them explicitly point out the multiple infractions on a given hit. Granted, when giving out a 25-game suspension, your explanation should be air-tight, hence the detail. But if the NHL goes forward with a “multiple infraction” outlook on supplemental discipline, it could make larger suspensions more palatable.

Watching real hockey since days in Boston Garden where that was a man’s game and yes I played. Today the rule regarding hits just shows how far the game has been ruined. This particular hit during the playoff ‘s really?
This is hockey million’s of $$ for player’s, so we need to some how protect investment. Give me a break I watched Pitt game same hits very similar hits but no call? Then to fine folks for sticking up for or venting just like the NBA. This is so sorry and I am proud to see safety being addressed but not at the expense of a very suspect hit this is hockey just going full speed and using your shoulder and the player being targeted has his head at the point of impact. It is what it is if he jumps up at him or really tries to go out of way to hurt then you can react but not over react. Sending a message but I guess because fans can’t take the physical style revenue is effected. So suspend and fine anyone for saying something what we need is some one to hip check those who cave in too the faint of heart.
