This is just another case of you being too stubborn to admit when you're wrong. It wasn't a hockey play, it was a dumb, late, unnecessary hit that resulted in a violent collision into the boards and an injury. He's not going after the puck or doing anything that would just be a 'normal' play. Therefore it got a suspension.

Welcome to the NHL.
So, if the puck is loose in Bartulis' feet that isn't a hockey play? He came in hard and put his shoulder into him and Bartulis had his head down. The puck was RIGHT THERE. Bob was freezing it at Bartulis' feet. He wasn't standing in some random location by himself.
