I am okay with it, but at the same time I would have been okay with a few days more. Hall is a repeat offender. His hit on Brodin was as reckless, it just didn't occur in the NHL, but the pseudo-NHL (AHL during the lock-out).
If it weren't Cal C, Hall may have gotten more. The problem is Cal's style of play. I don't think he's a dirty player, but considering the number of hits he puts up, plus what I hate, the finishing his checks behind the play, it may be a matter of time before Cal hurts someone. It may very well be accidental on Cal's part, but still suspension worthy. the difference is Cal would be remorseful for hurting someone. Hall is a p***.
As a 3rd or 4th liner, the impact of Cal's absence from the line-up, will be marginal. He has scored two goals this year, both were tips. I know they count as shots taken, but he just put his stick out to hit at it, and it worked. He's pretty good at tips, that is why I wouldn't mind putting him in front of the net on the PP. But he has got to be one of the worst shooters of the puck in the NHL. And apparently he hasn't come to the realization that what he does isn't working, or the coaches are watching a different shooting game than the rest of us.
