Brad May Suspension Should Be Longer

From Alan Adams at Sportsnet.ca,

Again, the punishment doesn’t meet the crime.
But then again, this is the NHL we’re talking about.
Anaheim’s Brad May has been suspended for three games for a sucker punch he landed on Minnesota defenceman Kim Johnsson in the dying moments of Minnesota’s 4-1 win over the Ducks on Tuesday.
May received a match penalty for “intent to injure” and a three-game suspension—an absolute joke. Eight or 10 games would have sent the right message and there is precedent. Tie Domi was suspended for eight games in 1995 for sucker-punching Ulf Samuelsson.

continued… (*plus more observations on the Islanders’ saga)
