Alan May maybe onto something.
Personally I think its the league trying to make Ovechkin a pure skill player for their marketting reasons. They do not want him injuring players (easy for him to do since he is a beast) as it gives bad rep.
Oh...and for those Caps fans who think "well this is a good thing..it gives OV rest and other players a chance to play"..well true enough...HOWEVER the bad part is that now its on his record and it shows the league is targetting him. Come playoff time any marginal hit by him will draw a penalty and perhaps a suspension.
Colin Campbell is horrible.
What a coincidence that this is the third time OV was suspended prior to a game against the Panthers who are fighting for a playoff spot.
Irony that Green got suspended (I know Campbell supposedly was not involved in that ruling) in a game against...you guessed it...the Panthers!
Where there is smoke there is usually fire.
Yeah, Campbell supposedly doesn't rule on matters involving Florida, but shouldn't he be also eliminated from matters involving Florida's division rivals? Talk about a conflict of interest.
