Personally, IMO, if a player makes incidental contact to the head, it happens, and hits in those cases shouldnt receive long drawn out suspensions.

This particular hit it was blatantly obvious watching the disciplinary video that he put his right forearm/elbow into the players head, and jumped some 6 inches off the ice to do so.

There is no place for those types of hits, and that is the message being sent. You will sit for some time if you break these very simple rules. Had he not jumped, he's probably looking at just a head checking minor considering the player did not get hurt.

Its basic hitting etiquette. You leave your damn skates on the ice or your intention is very clear.

On another note, has any new information come to light from the Nick Cousins hearing that was on Monday?

Looking forward to hosting a hungry Soo team on friday!
the defences needs a stay at home defences man that can make a good first pass and help clear in front of the net.
