I agree with those that say this is absolutely absurd. I feel for Barch, I really do. Although the comment was wrong, so are about 100 other comments said by players on the ice to each other on a game to game basis.
I don't know whether the linesman thought he heard something else or went on some sort of power trip, but I am in disbelief that a linesman of all people took that means of action towards a player (on the bench, no less).
There's a reason why the NHL delayed the decision for so long, probably because they had no clue what to do without looking completely backwards (which happens regularly through normal suspensions anyway)
