Because it was Upshall, there are still some saying it is hard lines.

Personally, I couldn't give a rats **** about Upshall, and I still think the suspension is slightly harsh.

If Bart gets up and continues playing, would the suspension have been forthcoming? I don't think so.

Therefore the suspension is based on the injury IMO, not the act itself, and that is harsh on Upshall, who didn't mean to inure him.
Not true. Barts was so far away from the boards.. that I don't see how it could even be boarding.... roughing maybe.

Had barts not been injured on the play, I doubt there would be any suspension... hell I doubt there would have been a 2 min minor.
