It's another example of how in the NHL, you generally only get punishment if someone gets hurt = dumb.

Since Gionta wasnt hurt = **crickets**

Had Gionta broken his leg or tore his ACL = 5 to 8 game suspension probably
I agree some what...but...I also equate this to leaving the bench during an altercation since he really wasn't even involved in the play.

Had I seen this happen..after the game I would have predicted 5 - 10 games. That was a complete disregard for safety and genuine spit in the face to sportsmanship. I think the last time I saw something this distasteful in the NHL, Chris Simon was slashing someone with his skate. I'm pissed for you guys.
