I think you are missing 1 big thing here.
The meeting was originally called to a phone hearing for a 1st time offender, aka maybe 3 games. After the fact a Ref or Linseman came forward and said " I heard Keith say he was gonna get Daniel".
Ok, now the phone call changes to a in person hearing because it was a "Bounty" hit if you will.
Being a first time offender has gone out the window because he said he was gonna do it.
Edit: As a Canucks fan i say 10 games, as a Hockey fan i say 6.. Therefor 8 seems just right.. All in all, we are all humans and Daniel Sedin most likely wont play the rest of the regular season and possibly further. Duncan Keith gets a rest and can be overly fresh for the playoffs.
So anything less than 8 games and the blackhawks are laughing all the way to the playoffs IMO.
Therefor Im thinking Duncan Keith gets 8 games.
