Half a season to sit and think what you did Mr Torres.

"It is the third-longest suspension in NHL history behind Billy Coutu’s ban in 1927 for assaulting an official, which was dropped after 2 1/2 years; and in 2000, Marty McSorley was suspended a year for knocking out Donald Brashear by swinging his stick at his head.

This is the 10th time Torres has been suspended, fined or warned for an illegal check to the head, according to the NHL."

So 10, count 'em, 10 hits to the head for Raffi. Lifetime would be appropriate.

This is, essentially, a life time ban. He's played 44 games since the end of the 2011/2012 season, only 5 last year. He's 34 and provides nothing but a PR issue for a team. Would be nice for the NHL to just do it, but I'd be completely shocked if we saw Torres play another game.
