It's not enough.
Obviously it's a good thing if they penalise teams that rack up suspensions, but they need to add a rule that holds players responsible for hits that are reckless or obviously dangerous, like Chara on Pacioretty, or Cooke on Savard. Neither Cooke nor Chara were suspended, so these new rules wouldn't have had any effect on them. The problem with the current rules is that you can have hits that are technically legal but still extremely dangerous and unnecessary. Once again the NHL shows it lacks leadership and vision. I doubt anything will change unless a player dies on the ice, unfortunately.
