See this is the more apporpriate response to this incident. Don't suspend the guy. Tell every team "look enough is enough! Every slash will be called. You slash, expect 2 minutes"

Seems harsh, but it's better than suspending every player for a game or two because they are doing what they've been taught to do from competitive youth hockey on up.
