Thoughts?  Does he launch?  Are both skates off the ice at impact?  Is primary point of contact the chest or head?  Not a previous offender and Girardi returned to game, does that matter?

It was a Ranger and a Bruin - so no penalty.... Just kidding!

 

Yep, it looks suspendable to me, but likely just one or two games.

See, I REALLY don't like where this is going.  I kinda object to this suspension just like I objected to the Weise hit. In both cases, neither left his feet, both hit through the body, but they are being disciplined because they were both driving up as they hit their victim. Well, if you play hockey at all, that is almost a natural preparation for a big hit. It helps you keep your balance after the hit is made.

 

This is going to stop big hits. I don't like it, especially since the DPS has ruled that plenty of such hits have been legal in the past so long as the check also went through the body and they haven't delineated where that line should be drawn. For those reasons, I disagree with the suspension. I'm watching the game getting neutered again right now.
