There were some very big hits this weekend. One suspension has already been handed down, another was not given, and a meeting Tuesday regarding a third.
You decide if the NHL gets it right.
This one got Scuderi a suspension.
Ott has a hearing on Tuesday for this one.
We all know that Richards will not be suspended for this.
For old time sakes remember this hit on Eric Lindros?
Or this one by Brian Campbell:
Last here’s Jim Johnson flagrantly hitting Jeremy Roenick:
While not everyone of these hits resulted in a suspension, or penalty, the common theme with everyone of the except for the Richards hit on Booth is that a scrum of some sort followed the hits immediately.
That’s the code. You stick up for your teammate.
I guess the Panthers haven’t read the book.
Thanks for reading.
