Only A Two Game Suspension For Radko Gudas?

from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News,

Not sure what was more of a joke, the fact that the NHL’s Department of Player Endangerment™ suspended Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas only two games for clubbing NHL scoring leader Nikita Kucherov over the head with his stick or the head-scratching claim department head George Parros made when explaining the suspension.

Read what Parros said in the NHL’s video explaining the suspension and try not to laugh out loud: “As part of our efforts to change player behavior and in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement, the Department of Player Safety will increase a player’s discipline when he repeatedly violates NHL playing rules. No matter how forceful the impact he makes is, Gudas must stop using his stick to target the heads of his opponents.”

Oh really now? This is the same Radko Gudas who received a 10-game suspension for his stick attack on Mathieu Perreault of the Winnipeg Jets just 15 months ago, right?
