It's highly believable. This should have been a no-brainer 5 game suspension, no more no less. Exactly the same punishment Keith got. But when has the NHL ever gotten something right? When has a Canuck ever not gotten off lightly?

Torres got nothing for taking out Seabrook, Bieksa didn't get an instigator/automatic one game for jumping Stalberg, Burrows didn't get anything for biting Bergeron, Dale Weise got nothing for pile driving Alex Plante from behind into the boards. This all occured within less than a year. Hell, Bertuzzi got off with a relative slap on the wrist for nearly maiming a guy. Sad as it is to say, the league seems to have been intimidated by the incessant *****ing that has come out of Vancouver management since the days of Burke and Crawford, and they're scared to come down on them. It's bizarre to say the least.
