10 games plus the first round which went 7 games.

but yeah, players never get suspended for hitting rangers, just further goes to prove the anti-ranger conspiracy the league has.

This is also truth. Regardless of whether Volchenkov was milking it or not, him going down and drawing attention to the play is what drew the suspension. Stralman gets back up and keeps playing, no one thinks twice about the play

I hate embellishing in most situations, but embellishing a head hit is okay in my book. If you get hit high laying on the ground is the smart thing to do as so long as you're not in the defensive zone. you can either draw a penalty, get a whistle, or in this case get a suspension. high hits are always a little bit more dangerous than anything else on the ice. if a guy's going to do it you have to teach him that he can't. sadly we're not in the day and age where you're allowed to respond to a dirty hit by dropping the gloves-- you end up with an instigator... so embellishing a dangerous hit is the next best thing..

don't get me wrong, diving on trips/hooks/slashes to the stick/holds drive me nuts, but a head hit is dangerous and if guys take a penalty on it then hopefully they'll be more careful next time.

Maybe the people in the truck are devils fans?
