That's a fair suspension. I really have no idea why the Slovak player turned and went at Shalunov to begin with. Anyone saying this is dirtier than what Jenner did is not thinking clearly. Sure, we Canadians look down on any stick violence more so than body contact. However, this was a quick reaction to an unexpected and illegal interference type check. The Slovak also leaned down towards Shalunov's stick. It's not like Shalunov raised up his stick and thrust forward with a vicious premeditated cross check. Jenner stalked his check from the top of the circles to the goal line. The timing of that check was far dirtier.
