Funny--we had a discussion a couple days ago about a key Rangers prospect Dylan McIlrath who freight trained another player up high in a recent WHL game. I like McIlrath's mean game--he's just about a defenseman's version of Milan Lucic--but IMO that was a bad hit and he deserves the suspension he's got.

I think Ference deserves one as well--the length of which may depend somewhat on whether or not McDonagh is concussed. I think if he is--it should be at least 5 games. I don't think Ference is particularly a dirty player--that sometimes these things do happen but when and if you're the perpetrator you need to be held accountable.

It was a real good game until that point. That really marred it in my eyes. Losing McDonagh for any length of time is going to hurt the Rangers badly. I read somewhere that he had over 30 minutes TOI in this game and he's been playing 25 minutes or more very regularly and is a +15. A really good player who should be one of the best D in the league in the next several years.
