The league should really take a complete lack of discipline and blatant disregard for player safety more seriously.
Deveaux is a multiple time offender. Don't know the actual numbers, but I'm willing to bet he's the most frequently suspended AHL player over the last five seasons, along with Tim Conboy.

As far as the AHL taking the weekends off, pretty much. Suspensions usually get handed out Monday or Tuesday when the league receives the game tape and reviews it. Sometimes, that has to come at the suggestion of the opposing team asking for supplimental discipline. Now if a player gets a match penalty, he cannot play the next game until the incident is reviewed.
