What did Jamie Benn get for cross checking Larkin in the neck which caused a hospital stay, potentially surgery?
Hit on Veleno!!! Oh wait it's Boston, they seem to always get overlooked!
I could live with this suspension if there would be accountability and consistency in the NHL. But we all know that this league is a joke. Certain players get nothing, others a $5000 fine, while some 2 games...
Talking about cross checking, Crybaby is a master at it.
This got one game.
They are making assumptions based on intent. Unmitigated bulls**t...
