Haha!

Ovechkin is being treated like a goon.

Not really surprising and he deserved the 2 games.

There should be a clause in the CBA stating your suspension starts once you're medically cleared to play. But oh well. Definately deserved a game or three, gladd the NHL had the balls to do it

Good for the NHL. Finally suspending a superstar. Hopefully this teaches Ovechkin a message, he is too good to be doing this cheap s***.

Make sense. But it's still utter BS that Richards didn't get a suspension for destroying Booth's skull. (no, I'll never let that go until I see more star players get this consistent treatment)

Knee to Knees are in the rule book. Shoulder to head isn't.

I could be wrong... But I dont think the suspension is for the hit itself.. Isnt there a rule about an automatic suspension if you get a certain number of game misconducts in a certain number of games?.. I believe Ovechkin had 2 game misconducts in 3 games.

Do we really need to remind ourselves the NHL enforces it's "mandatory" suspensions for game misconducts whenever it bloody well feels like it?

Stupid ******* Malkin...

True, but didn't a Penguins player (Cook?) just get suspended for the same hit?

A few more players were suspended for similar hits after the Richards hit.

The NHL wants to stop the hits to the head, but when the Richard's hit occured it was the first one and the NHL thought it would be best to wait until they add it to the rule book before they suspend people on the fly. But it's been far more prevalent then they probably assumed this year so they are starting to crack down on them before they officially introduce it to the rulebook.

This is of course my take on the situation. For all I know Richards threatened to kill Bettman if he got suspended.

Ovie's a repeat offeneder and he was suspended earlier this week........ <_<

He got a game misconduct earlier in the week. I don't think he was suspended then.

That's BS ... should be at least 5 to match Laroque's, he is a repeat offender.

Oh well, if NHL won't get him ... somebody will next time he is on the ice.

Not as much as he deserved (3-4 games IMO) but I'm pretty impressed that the league even suspended him.

Ovechkin's leg might be feeling better before 5 games. Can't have him missing any unnecessary ice time.

Ovechkin is one of the most reckless players I've ever seen in my life. He'll his and/or someone else's career way short the way he plays. Probably both. I know Boudreau wishes he'd settle it down too.

And amazingly, didn't receive any discipline for a knee-on-knee hit on Shean Donovan, who's out for the next 4-6 months.

(And nope, not gonna let up on that. Annoys the crap out of me that the league didn't even review Cooke on that garbage.)
