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.

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.
So, we've said the same thing in different ways......how is it not true?
