I didnt have an issue with the fine on the slewfoot. I didnt like him doing that, that was stupid. But to suspend him for this was just stupid. It was a 2 minute minor for charging and even that was questionale.
I think the impact of the hit lifted his skates up more then anything.
no contact with the head. 2 game suspension. very, very weak IMO
no, it really didn't. they froze the video at the moment of impact and he was quite clearly off the ice at that point.
and he won't get suspended every time he charges, but when he does it less than a week after committing a dirty play against a very good player, he probably will be suspended.
