I think I have looked at the replay about forty times ( hi-def in slomo) and I have to agree with Zad that the hit is not dirty, charging might be but G is not hitting with his elbow it is actually his lower arm making the contact ( part of arm between elbow and hand) and his hand is front of his chest with the elbow pointing away from the body.

Now... I am not an educated referee so I don't know what the rules says but I sure as hell have seen worse without as much as an eyebrow twitch from refs side.

So five game susp...sounds like the NHL-maffias doing.

very good clip with excellent resolution
