4 games on Torres is such *********. It just needs to be said once again.

This may be more true that you realize. There's some posters on CDC claiming that Torres isn't skating today because of food poisoning. (I'm assuming it isn't anything serious)

And of course the NHL ****s up again. This just goes to show how messed up the Torres suspension is. If I was Gillis, I'd be livid. I thought the Torres suspension was about setting a new standard but I should have known better. It really is a wheel they spin after every questionable play.

Apparently, driving a guy's head directly into the boards from behind is a cleaner hockey play than an otherwise clean hit on a guy less than an inch from touching the puck. Okay, NHL, got it.

In their defense, they never said how long the new standard would last.

Good intentions...bad outcome. Stoll says he was trying to pin Ian White, not drive his head into the glass. 1 game seems fair.

Makes sense now. It's all about intent. Explains the Chara non-suspension too.

Contrast that with Torres, who was unrepentant, and probably told Campbell that he wanted to send Eberle into August.

^ Yeah he did seem remorseful as soon as he did it.

Still sucks though.
