Honest question, does any of the other three major leagues have suspensions with the frequency the NHL does? If it keeps up like this (or even if it falls back to normalcy) I imagine the NHL is going to be very keen on changing the game to stop this as a lot of suspensions equals a lot of forfeited pay, a lot of missed games by NHL players, and just looks bad all around for the league.
It's tough to say since Baseball & Basketball aren't even remotely in the same stratosphere when it comes to physical contact like Hockey.

Football is really the only one that does & they are basically trying to find solutions like the NHL is without taking the physical element completely out.
