I wonder if it had anything to do with the fact that it was Torres.

If they are going to suspend this then the NHL needs to seriously look at suspending attempted blatant intents to injure. I know this would be hard to prove in most cases which is why I think that it should be reserved for missed hits that are obviously dirty. For example, Dustin Brown's attempted flying elbow/knee combo hit from the previous series. He missed the elbow to the head, but his intention was crystal clear. It blows my mind that nothing can come of that. 'Hey, if he connected he'd be suspended, but since he missed it we will completely ignore it.' That is no way to send a message and protect players.
