Maybe because Tkachuk has dodged a couple of suspensions already this season?

I said 1-2, he got 2. Seems fair.

I love the kid too. That was just a dangerous hit. Not trying to hate on a very talented youngster.

I think 2 games is pretty spot on. Now the question becomes why Hall wasn't suspended for his elbow to Kassian's head.

2 games for that mutt but more importantly he's a repeat offender going forward now. His benefit of the doubt goes out the window.

Tkachuk is love, Tkachuk is life.

Doughty should get a fine at least for his Oscar performance..

So the Flames call up Hathaway, arguably an even bigger a-hole (although not nearly as skilled)

2 games seems fair to me. Clearly a dirty hit.

Wow.
I was expecting a slap on the wrist or 1 game MAX.
Perhaps DoPS included Tkachuk's earlier attempts to injure players in this suspension.

Garbage play by a garbage player. He had it coming, just surprised it took so long. How long until the next one is the million dollar question.

Good he got 2 games. Probably should've gotten it earlier in the season. The hit last night was one hell of a sell job by Doughty though. That guy could probably step into a lead role on a blockbuster and not look out of place

Seems about right for a first offense. I actually thought it might just be a fine since Doughty wasn't injured. Nice to be wrong in this case.

Hopefully he cleans his game up, or this will just be the first of many

Yeah he's just a garbage player. Hardly any points, awful advanced stats, no character or drive. Total plug.

Dops did something right. I think that's the second time this season so they're on the upswing.

You'll note I said SHOULD not IS. The NHL is far too lenient on dangerous plays, including elbowing. If you intentionally make contact with another player with your elbow you such be treated as intentionally attempting to injure.

As for calling that "lifting the elbow" I may as wall call punching a guy "extending the fist".

Nice try bud, but in Elliotte's Friedman's article a few weeks ago, he said that the referee told him the meeting was held in December.
Try harder next time.

C'mon man
Call him dirty all you want, but he's definitely not a garbage player.
