Ducks GM Murray On Wisniewski Suspension

from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog,

In supporting the eight-game suspension of defenseman James Wisniewski late Thursday afternoon, Ducks GM Bob Murray said his player “crossed the line” with his hit on Chicago’s Brent Seabrook in Wednesday’s night game at Honda Center.

But Murray also took issue with Wisniewski’s punishment of eight games as handed down by NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell following a morning hearing with the parties involved.

“First of all, we love the way Wiz plays and we want him to play the game hard,” Murray said.  ”That’s how he has to play and he’s very effective doing that. In this instance, he crossed the line. He went too far and he knows he was going to get suspended. I applaud the league cracking down on these things.”
