Nice embellishment, but that's all that is. The "facts" are that Jenner hit Petersson x amount of seconds late, straight on neither too high nor too low. Those are the facts. I already stated why I don't think injury should be factored in.

As I said...

You could make the argument that Shalunov had a size difference and didn't mean to cross-check the opposing player in the face in which case I might agree with you. But I haven't seen anyone mention that yet.

In the end I think the only difference between the two (Jenner and Shalunov) which should account for the 3 game suspension versus 1 is that Jenner was also disciplined last year. I don't think injury should be mentioned.
