    I agree, but then they can't wuss out the next time someone makes a hit like that......

      Exactly.

        Yeah, I won't hold my breath. If they start suspending for "hits like that" in the future fine. But the way the WCHA is run, I don't see how the Big Ten could possibly be worse. I'll miss the teams, I'm not going to miss Shepherd and McLeod. Two guys who should be fired. Out of a cannon.

          Not in the usual hockey sense of hitting somebody in the numbers, but it was a blindside hit from somebody behind the play.

            What hit did you see because it's certainly not Rau's on Zucker with that description.

                  Hey, CCHA guys eject the wrong one on the ice, wait a week, suspend the right guy after viewing it 30 times and it not being as bad as it originally was thought, let the team appeal and then deny the appeal.

                  I'm hoping the Big Ten hires them for the Michigan/Michigan State games.

                      Easy 5 minute major call, IMO, the more I look at the replays. I have no idea what makes the league, refs, whatever, to decide between a misconduct or disqualification, so I will not comment on that. Stupid, STUPID hit by Rau. How someone could argue Zucker would have been ready for that hit when he is looking down the ice away from where Rau is coming from is beyond me. I like when opposing teams hate Rau because he chirps and draws penalties, not because he cheap shots opposing players.

                      Edit: After reading through the rest of the posts and seeing the rules for what makes a hit a misconduct, DQ, etc., I would not argue with Rau getting a one game suspension. I would have disagreed with that last night, but the more I look at the hit, the worse it looks to me, and his hands are clearly up near/on the head of Zucker.
                      I agree 100% with the hit warranting a major and ejection, but think the league went a little too far with the DQ. If this hit warrants a DQ, then there have been NUMEROUS other hits in the WCHA this year (more malicious) that should have warranted one as well. If this hit wasn't on national television, I think Rau would be skating tonight.

                        Come on, do you honestly believe we'll see DQ's from here on out for hits like that? There was an equally malicious hit in Duluth last night, but that one wasn't on national TV, so it didn't warrant a DQ. Let's be real here.

                          It was on national tv, they showed the hit numerous times, but for the life of me I can't find the video on ANY of the Interwebs.

                            I could care less about it being on TV or not! This crap has to stop! Too many players are being injured on stuff like this! Suspend them if warranted and this is worthy of suspension!
