Suspension is fine. It was a failed hip check imo. Considering the hit and listening to Hall's comments is all well and good, but the fact is that no matter what he intended to do he came in with his knee first (the hip was a close second though). There is no disputing that.
I have no problem with this hit, I think we need to show "mean-ness" from time to time but I don't think we should be scared to face the music afterwards. Fine, 1-2, max 3 games, just remember to keep your head up when playing in rexall... (oh, we're not there yet but maybe maybe this is a start).
It's hockey, nothing more, nothing less... Bad hits happen all the time, both sides just have to live with it.
