Travniceks got 3 years for his slashing/spearing/highstick to the face on Weinhandl right?

I for one agree with long bans when it comes to sticks to the face, especially if the player is holding on to the stick with both hands and putting force behind the stick movement. If the stick is bounced off of someone elses stick, it's obviously harder to decide.

Anyone that has played hockey knows that a downward slash (which some claim it was) towards Trochecks stick would've ended on his stick, maybe on his glove. Not in his face.

Therefore; careless swing. Not intentional to the face, but he is being careless.

Should've gotten 2 games.
