Well legally grabbing someone qualifies as an assault. To think that Rypien is going be treated leniently because he didn't punch the guy's lights out is absurd. You can't touch fans at all, Rypien crossed a line here. Add to that the sucker punch to Staubitz and manhandling the linesman and I would be shocked if Rypien gets less than 10 games.
