Thanks...........and I understand. I just don't think those two hits should be compared. Smith the hittee had complete control of the puck and Smith the hitter did come from a different direction despite what the rulebook states. Whereas Campoli "could have had" Malone in his sights but was focused too much on the lost puck and trying to regain control. That's honestly how I see it. And I do think the Malone hit warranted a game or two suspension but I was never in the camp for 5 - 10.
