For about two years Avery had the longest suspension in the league for his comment. It wasn't till Wisieneski got 8 games for boarding in 2010 that someone got more than Avery. It is a pretty pathetic track record by the NHL.

off topic, while looking back at past suspensions check out this wikipedia entry.

Speaking of wisinewski and Avery... wisinewski got two games for making a... sexual gesture towards Avery. During a game. On TV. Live. NHL saw it as apples and oranges and disciplined accordingly.
