I don't even remember the hit. If on;y the NHL would be consistent with these rules.

Not a great way to start our playoff push.

HAHAHAHAHA. NHL and refs need to get on the same page. Hit to the head warranting suspension and they give an interference call?

my thoughts exactly.
The only thing i can think of is that none of the refs actually saw the hit, just saw the end result and made the assumption that it was interference.

Bettman's way of saying "Well, we were going to suspend Crosby...but he actually showed up.......oh, and ratings would plummet."

I think this is retaliation from A2Y over the Red Wing suspensions. They bought off Bettman, but didn't pay enough to have him suspend Sid.

Barely recall cooke checking player, then his head hitting the glass... too bad they miss
game after game when Evgeni is molested, head - to - toe.

It was an open ice hit, on the blueline, probably 10 feet or so from the boards. I remember the hit, but i dont remember if it was a head shot or not. I do remember cheering, cause it was a solid hit from my seats, but i dont remember thinking that he would get suspended, although it was interference.

I remember it. It was at the blueline, a little late while Walker was watching his dump in, with Cooke's elbow getting up into the side of Walker's head. You know, the only kind of hit Walker ever throws.

It's really sad that I dont remember cookie hitting him in any illegal fashion.

I know walker left but play did not stop because of some massive blow to the head.

**** NHL is a garbage league anymore. Inconsistency.

The NHL! Where the act means nothing, and only the result counts.

seriously, if walker's not hurt in some fluky way, this is a non-issue. i hate how the league bases their suspensions almost exclusively on the resulting injury.

This is why the NHL will allways be on Vs. and not on a major network.

What? I remember him getting a penalty, but that's about it. You'd think if it was a hit that would warrant a suspension, then I'd at least remember it. This is ridiculus. We finally get a couple guys back and now this happens. BS.

it was the hit that led to a penalty which resulted in a power play goal.

Ok, for some reason I still have the game on my DVR and i played it back. I didn't see anything that was suspension worthy on that hit. Sure it was a tad late and maybe he got his arms up a bit, but its nothing that doesn't happen 10 or 20 time every single game in the NHL.
