Based on past rulings of other players, that's too high. Based on simple common sense, that's too low.

While I'm ok with guys like Scott getting nailed in these situations, it's not exactly a fair suspension. If it was almost any other with no suspension history, this is 3 games max

Unless you're Kronwall.

Then it's a pat on the back and a job well done.

He was warned for that Kessel incident in the preseason. Perhaps that factored into the decision, since it was relatively close temporally.

I agree with Brian Burke's recent comments on fighting.

Ninety-eight percent of NHL players voted to keep fighting in the game, yet somehow members of the news media take it upon themselves to try to convince the players that the scribes know what is best for them. They don’t write about the times a heavyweight skates by his opponent’s bench to say, “Settle down, or I’ll settle you down,” and it works. They don’t notice a tough guy warning an opponent at a faceoff. They’ve never heard a star player march into their office, slam the door and demand the team get tougher because he’s getting killed out there by opponents playing without fear. They’ve never seen a chippy game on the edge settle down after a good fight.

Sure, maybe. But these videos and explanations are about transparency, and the reasons behind this suspension aren't transparent.

a) Dallas Stars
b) Kansas City Chiefs
c) Seattle Mariners
d) Any of the above

That kinda crap doesn't belong in the NHL. The Coyotes should be ashamed of their top pick. Hopefully he cleans up his act or else Adam Oates may have something to say to him...

Did Domi do that again? Or is that the same pass from last May?

:D The closest thing I've ever seen to that was at a WWF event (in 1975?) when one of the Hart brothers (I think it was the fatter one) was doused with beer coming out to the runway.
