By many people's arguments Bertuzzi got a huge slap on the wrist for breaking Moore's neck (his full season suspension was the lockout)-so therefore no dirty hits deserve suspensions? Silly argument.
McDonald has no prior disciplinary action taken against him in either the NHL or the AHL and thankfully Lovejoy wasn't injured. It was a careless play, but there's nothing to suggest there was any malice in the action. A suspension is overly harsh in this case. If he does it again, that's a different story.
