Huh? I don't "punish" the guys, I'm not a hockey official. But as a fan, you have to know that often the punishment is a reflection of the injury.

Would Bertuzzi have gotten as large a suspension if the player he acosted was able to get his hands out and break his own fall? No, not even close.

Would McSorley have been punished as sevrely if Barshear didn't get so badly injured? No.

Unfortunately the league DOES take into account the injury...I know it isn't right, but it does come into play.

BTW, in case you missed it, I agreed with you on Chara...but that means all such incidents should carry a misconduct..and they too often do not.
