That'd warrant a benching for a few games on many teams tbh.
Wait, what did he "misread"? Gorges, one of the captains, got boarded. Refs called it. He stepped up and didn't care if Fleischmann dropped his gloves or not. It wasn't just a big "clean" hit, it was a liberty taken on a leader of this team. I doubt any team benches a guy doing the same thing in the same situation, and I don't think Gorges will be voting against him any time soon for what that's worth. Supplementary discipline eventually becomes an issue, but if someone is going to burn their "get out of jail free" card on something like this, I'd rather see it in game 2, not game 42, or 82.
