Are you referring to the phantom spear last year vs. Russia that wouldn't have been called in any North American hockey league?

One game sure, can't be having late hits... but that's all it was. Didn't leave his feet, didn't get his shoulder or elbow up, head wasn't targeted.

The injury to Petterson may have influenced the length, which is ridiculous. I'm of the firm belief you look at the play and not the result. A charge, hit to the head, or hit from behind is an illegal act regardless of what happens to the player on the other end. The "illegal-ness" of the act (speed with which its done, lateness, intention etc.) should all be looked at. But don't give a guy more games because the guy receiving it was injured.
