I thought Carkner's sucker punch warranted 1 game.
the fact that it was premeditated, another game.
the fact that he is a repeat offender, another game.
3 game minimum. Actually, I'd give him another game for the 5 punches he laid down on a defenseless Boyle. The first two laid him out. Frankly, I thought the act was so egregious it warranted 10 games. Had flashbacks of Beuke getting punked by Matt Johnson. If Alfie is injured, in a just NHL, 3 is fair for Hags but it's total BS when you compare it to what other players are getting. It's still possible that Alfie is going to play injured tonight which would not reduce the severity of his actions (injured is injured).
