Krys Barch has been suspended for one game. Apparently, Barch asked Subban, "Did you slip on a banana peel?" - Now, if Subban actually fell, this is brutal judgment on the part of the linesman and Brendan Shannahan. Slipping on a banana peel is a classic folly in slap-stick comedy. Barch could have just as easily said this to Mike Camellari as he did Subban. The linesman overreacted, and so did the NHL. This is just ridiculously sensitive.
However, if Subban did not fall, the Barch is out of line. I didn't see the play. But I doubt that Barch would just say that. Anyone know the circumstances of the play?
