Would really like someone to throw this to Bill Daly or Shanahan and get them to rationalize their decision making in light of it...
I think the case would be easier to make if those numbers also included the number of cases in which NHL disciplinary folks explicitly said "we don't feel supplementary discipline is necessary here".

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
