I think this suspension is a bit too much from the IIHF, yes it was late and unneccessary, but the hit itself was clean, Petterson was admiring his pass and didn't keep his head up, I would be okay with 1 or 2 games, but 3 seems a bit overboard.

What do you guys think?
I think a late hit is by definition is not clean.

I hate the term "admiring his pass".

If a player is vulnerable and you decide to hit him LATE anyway, you are liable to be suspended.

3 games seems right to me.
