It is true that this should be a 5 games.
I am just comparing to others that seems to me worst and got less.

I agree that this is deserved but other suspension should have gotten more.

I just looked at it 4 or 5 times but I may be wrong.
Not trying to defend White here, just try to be fair.

It should be 5 games minimum but it should be the same in other case.
Just here hoping that this establish 'jurisprudence'.
Maybe he didn't specifically aim for the head, but he certainly didn't let up when Huskins changed course, and he made contact with the head and nothing else.

I agree with the fact that suspensions to others should have been different, but I'm glad you agree with me that this is a fair suspension.
