    I'd like the see the league's chart of how many games a suspension is based on whether someone is bloodied, a broken bone, how many games injured, etc. Guess spilling blood is barely worth mention.

        Bob, do you not know what a repeat offender is? And do you not understand why someone who has a long history of getting warnings, fines, and suspensions for the exact same hit he used to knock out Hossa would get a much stiffer penalty than a first time offender?

        Honestly, I hope you're just trolling and being an annoying fartface on purpose, otherwise you're mental.

          In a small way maybe, but in general I don't agree. If two people do the same offense, give them the same punishment, maybe a little harsher for a repeat offender. But to me it's largely an excuse for throwing the book at an easy target, while letting off others with much less, even those with their own repeat offenses.

            You're right. Simply drawing blood really isn't that big of a deal. That's why high sticks that draw blood are double minors and never result in suspensions.

                This wasn't just blood, it was boarding. Guess people forget what can happen when a player is boarded.

                  Let me say that I didn't expect 25 games for Torres and think it's harsh. That's as far as I'll go in agreeing with you. Raffi Torres is a puke and gets no sympathy from me. He's not out there to play the game. He's a predator and is out to seek and destroy. I don't respect that.

                    I have to side with JD on this. I expected 10 at most. 25 is sending a message, I think.

                      Huh? I know it was boarding...

                      And yes, it was just blood. Not all boardings are the same (I've seen a lot worse)...and the end result is always considered. Roszival was bloodied but my guess is he'll miss zero time because of it.

                          Well, it seem like you're doing one heck of a Scooby impersonation here (now that's a low blow!), so I'm sorry for calling you a fartface.

                          I agree with you that the NHL is pretty dumb with how they handle initial suspensions. A one game sit down isn't going to teach anyone anything. And a 25 game suspension is only going to (hopefully) teach one guy a lesson. If they started out with say 5 games in the regular season and 2 in the playoffs for hits deemed dirty at a bare minimum, that would be something. But these days, you're correct, it takes a player a talking to, a fine, an inital suspension, and maybe one more suspension before they'd even get a whiff of 5 games...that's 4 players they could significantly injure or attempt to injure before they get to a length of penalty that might make them reconsider those types of hits, or make their team reconsider signing them/playing them anymore.

                            Awesome? Well, if you're reflexively for underdog franchises, then clearly yes. But in the next round in the West, it looks like we'll be seeing a lot of immovable object vs. immovable object games. Defensive soccer on ice, anyone? If so, Gurt's "Ugh" may be the more accurate call...

                                You can change the geography and the language, but Les Coyotes are still going to play a "defense first" system.
