No strawman here. Bourque makes a cheapshot away from the puck and gets 5 games. Green engages and engaged player who has already admitted to having his head down, and people here are calling for as much of a punishment, if not more, than Bourque.
Consistency from the league? Particularly when you see so many similar plays that have gone unpunished.
Where was Stamkos suspension for his sucker punch to Brouwer's head a few matchups ago?
We just gonna act like Tampa hasn't had their fair share of cheap shots in matchups this year?

Oh. My. God.
Keep it classy, DC.
I hope Green doesn't get a suspension. He's washed up and is a defensive liability. It'd be nice to see the caps continue to sink because of his terrible play.
its pathetic anyone can even defend this hit. He is being hit by someone else and theres no reason for green to come in with his elbow, all he had to do was throw his hip into him. Cowardly hit on a defenseless player.
if people cant admit that is an elbow, there is no hope...its as clear as day
