If Downie had done this when he was here and been suspended for 8+ games, we would've been furious he got that much.
No not at all if it was this situation. If Downie had laid a hit like this I think most everyone here would say it was a stupid hit and deserves a suspension if it got one.
Bottom line is hes already been suspended once for this exact type of hit, thats why it should have been more games than just 3.

Yes they lose pay. The amount is dependent on if they have been suspended in the past 18 months. It changes by day or by games of the season. So divide the paycheck by either 82 or like 185 or something like that.
