Wade Belak has just disgraced the uniform of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Anyone who was watching the Avalanche and Maple Leafs game tonight knows of what I am talking about.
In the middle of the second period, Belak came in towards the net, where ossi Vaananen was keeping his post near the crease. Belak for whatever reason, took a larger backswing than a baseball player and slashed the defenselees Vaananen in the face. Vaananen was lucky enough to be wearing a visor which took the brunt of the blow. Belak was assessed a 5:00 major penalty and a match penalty for this grotesque display.
If the NHL has its head in the right place, Belak should recieve a suspension. Anything under 3 games is intolerable, and 5 games or more should be handed down to #3 of the Maple Leafs.
