The Bertilsson hit
Found no thread about Simon Bertilssons hit on Jonas Berglund, so I'll start one. Aftonbladet reports that Bertilsson will be suspended for 4 games and get 3 additional games as a fine (will be able to play but won't get payed).
Thoughts about the hit and the suspension? Personally I think it's ridiculous that Bertilsson gets 7(!!!!) games for this hit. It's not blindside, it's not directly to the head and he keeps his elbow down. It is interference though. But otherwise than the interference part (which wouldn't be an issue if Berglund had touched the puck) it's a beauty of a hit.
Meanwhile Ölvestad, a repeat offender, gets 3 games for a flying elbow to the head.
Disciplinnämnden keeps on embarrassing themselves. It's clear that the media and their lynchmob mentality has influenced this decision.
Also Renberg crying like this is embarrassing. His Luleå bias couldn't be anymore obvious.
