Anyone who hasn't seen it:
1) Doan is a repeat offender ... his 3rd offense in 17 months. I don't believe Duncan Keith has a history.
2) I still don't believe Doan had any intention of hurting Jamie Benn. Slowed down it was ugly, but at full speed you can see the key to that still dirty play was him almost instinctively shooting the chicken wing out towards a guy going by him. With Duncan, man it really seems like he consciously said I'm going to eliminate this guy with an elbow. He was coming in straight at him and lining him up. The accusations of revenge are not a positive either.
3) This is the rare star on star brutality. So that means punishment for hurting a star player and the leniency for being a star player are going to be a wash.
I can see many fans screaming for more than 5 games, but I'll go with 3 to 5 max. I just hope Daniel is back soon.
