You don't suspend a guy for something that had ZERO reference to race and EVERYTHING to do with actions. Stand behind the player, don't let his reputation be tarnished because you want to save face.

Won't name which, but I guarantee there's "watch groups" ready to pounce and they were all over this before Barch reached the dressing room. I'm concerned that that's what the NHL is afraid of, and are punishing a guy for nothing.
Agreed.

The slippery slope by giving this linesman credit for running with that comment and tossing Barch is frightening.
