I'd give a suspension for the Roussel hit before this one. At least there you could make an argument that Brown targetted the head (though Roussel tried to sell that hard too). Here, Brown just braces for the hit and never even looks at the guy. If it was someone a little taller than Pominville hitting brown, it wouldn't even be an issue.
