Careless use of stick earns you a 2min penalty or 5+game at worst.

I don't know how anyone can claim this was just Reinhart being careless when he takes a heavy swing at opponents head *while looking him*.

Just because other offences went uncalled/got lighter punishments doesn't mean that Reinhart was treated unfairly.

Well, it's the former NHL referee Marouelli calling the shots on suspensions. I guess the IIHF should ditch these 2nd rate officials like Marouelli and hire some of those spotless CHL referees to decide on suspensions.
