Ducks Not Happy That Gaustad Wasn’t Suspended

from Dan Wood of Ducks Blog,

The fact that Sabres center Paul Gaustad avoided supplementary discipline from the NHL after delivering a controversial late-game hit that left center Ryan Getzlaf with a broken nose and facial cuts basically has the Ducks mad as hell and unwilling to take it anymore.

“I’m not happy,” Ducks general manager Bob Murray said after Gaustad was in Buffalo’s lineup for Thursday night’s 2-1, shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh, N.C. “If we’re going to be suspended for blows to the head, then they have to look at the other teams when our guys get hit. This just astounds me that Gaustad is not getting something for this, because that was on purpose and deliberate.”...

Colin Campbell, the NHL’s senior executive vice president of hockey operations, Murray said, “told me they looked at it and they didn’t feel it was worth anything. They felt he hit him with his helmet. I don’t care if he hits him with his helmet, his elbow. Whatever it is, we’re supposed to be protecting our players from hits to the head.”
