Bolland gets 4 games

I'm clearly going to be biased in this thing, but all things considered, 4 games in the playoffs is ridiculous.

Contact was made accidentally and some kind of suspension could be justified like high sticking. I would not be happy with 2 games, but it would at least show that consideration was given for all of the factors.

I am really not interested in how Ouzas got 4 games because: 1. the circumstances were different. 2. Missing 4 games in reg season is not the same as 4 in the playoffs. 3. Owen Sound fans disagreed with that suspension because it was just as goofy. 4. Ouzas didn't have a linesman spinning him around. 5. When contact was made Bolland couldn't even see Angelidis (who by the way was unrestrained and started the fracas with a cross check)

I guess despite the new rules it pays to stir up as must crap as possible with the best players in the league to take them out of the games. Especially after the whistle.
