That's a noble sentiment, but it's Campbell you want to get arrested for.

There's none. It's not like baseball. Just an awful awful decision. There you go Crosby, the whining worked. Maybe if he cries about knee on knee hits enough Matt Cooke will finally get suspended.

Especially when one of those 'extra days' happens to be the next home game against the Canes. God I hate this league...it's a miscarriage of justice.

Leafs, Sharks, Canes.
I realized that. Canes are a hell of a lot worse.

Although, his last Aaron Ward impression gave me fits, so maybe they're better off.

He should've decapitaded (sp) Boychuk... would've probably got 2 games instead of 3.

The NHL is a joke when it comes to refs and suspensions.

Welcome to Bruins fans reactions when Paille got whacked for 4 when the guy had his head down. I am glad Volchenkov got suspended as I know he's not dirty nor was it malicious but 2 would be sufficient, especially if the guy didn't get hurt.

Edit: Pie deserved the suspension, just not 4 games just to be clear

Let's try to be sane here. This was an elbow to the head.

That said, it was a 2 minute minor at most.

An elbow with more intent to injure that resulted in nothing (and neither hits were blind side, so the new hitting rules shouldn't make a difference):

No, Paille deserved his suspension.

No no, I agree he did, just not 4 games. I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear.

Paille should have been a 2 gamer. Volch 1. That would have been fair IMO

I still don't understand this at all. It didn't lead with the elbow. He didn't fling it out. The dude kind of ran into Volch's elbow almost.

I think we are all in agreement 2 games max. 2 should be the base for these hits imo.

The only positive is that Volch will still practice and be around the team.

I can't stand this league. So poorly run. Filled with inconsistencies.

If Cooke doesn't get more than 10 this league is going to be more of a joke than it already is.

Well, it looked to me like he stuck the elbow out a bit when he realized me was going to miss, then quickly tried to draw it back in.

I completely understand the suspension, it's just a joke that it's 3 games and Cooke will continue to be rewarded for his hits. Inconsistency and team favoritism run rampant within the higher ranks of this league.

Someone should show them the NHL headshot video that shows Stevens throwing what the league even today deems clean hits.

Cooke pulls out the knee on Ovy, nothing... Cooke hits someone from behind (again), probably nothing... Staal sucker punched someone and got a match penalty wich is supposed to result in a 1 game suspension, nothing.

The pattern is pretty clear that the NHL is a double standard league and god forbid we punish the Crosby's team.

If it wasn't for the Devils, I wouldn't follow this league. I love hockey and all, but I'll say it again, the NHL is such a third rate league.

I am in the same boat as you, it's pathetic how petty this league is.

lol if Stevens was playing for the Devils this year he'd probably be suspended 50 games for breathing on Crosby too hard.
