Here's a refresher:

"Los Angeles Kings' Matt Johnson, during a game in L.A. against the Rangers, skated behind New York's Jeff Beukeboom, measured his elbow to the back of Beukeboom's head and with full strength, delivered a vicious blow. Beukeboom was rendered immediately unconscious, unable to brace his fall to the ice (Beukeboom is 6 feet 5 inches tall, 6 feet 7 inches on skates) and fell face-first, suffering a concussion."

And don't give me crap about Beuk deserving it...he was one of the most respected D-men in the league and the Rangers were winning 4-1 at that point...(they went on to win 5-1).

Johnson is a an animal plane and simple. He needs to be banned from the NHL and put in a cage somewhere. This isn't his first suspension and I guarantee it wont be his last.
