Via an ESPN report on Twitter ... I'm sure it'll be up elsewhere shortly.

Brutal hit? Yes. Dangerous hit? Yes. Does this suspension make sense given others? No.

Just saw this as well, seems excessive considering the other recent hits that went unpunished.

wow......8 games? What a joke. The Gonchar hit was twice as bad and he didnt get anything. NHL officiating really is a circus.

Yeah it's not consistent with stuff like Cooke's non suspension, and others in the past, but I love it because a message needed to be sent.

Acting like Cooke and Gonchar are the only players that happened to have their dirty hits go unpunished is ridiculous.

Hell just the other day verse Buffalo, Torres hit Helm with a blindside hit to the head.

Total bulls***. The Richards hit on Booth, the Gonchar on Clutterbuck and the Cooke on Savard were all blindside hits that could have killed someone or at least ended their careers. Not one of them goes punished yet when Wiz hits Seabrook, who was facing him and saw it coming, he gets 8 games? This s*** is ridiculous... I'm no ducks fan but lets be real here - this was the least dirty of all four hits I've mentioned and as far as I'm concerned Seabrook had it coming after throwing that questionable hit on Perry, and that means a lot coming from me because I hate Corey Perry.

I like the 8 game suspension - I DONT like the lack of consistency. I cant believe that Gonchar hit when unpunished, and someone mentioned the Torres hit on Helm in buffalo the other night that went unpunished as well. Torres' game revolves around head hunting - I can't believe nobody put up a stink over that.
When you lose, say little. When you win, say less.

Had it been sid it would have been 0 games for sid 8 games for whoever he hit.

PS

What the hell? I thought 2 games, 3 at most, 8 is insane given some of the hits that have recently gone undisciplined by the NHL.

Do I agree with this post? Yes.

This is an open sign from the NHL: Just be careful how you injure a Hawks defenceman. These are the following tips you need to be aware of if you're thinking of dangerously clobbering a Hawks blueliner.

1) Be Ovechkin.
2) Don't charge from 3,000 feet away.
3) Cross check from behind, not hit in the chest from the front.

Agree in principle, but there have been numerous options to do that to other players in the last two weeks.

i was at that game last night, and even from the far side of the ice, in the nosebleeds, you could tell that was a dirty hit. it was actually scary seeing seabrook go down like that.

that said, 1-2 games max for wisnewski. nhl is just posturing over the GM's meeting

Its getting more and more difficult to try to find ways to justify the NHL's rulings. But I like a challenge.

This right here tells me the NHL dont know f*** all, about f*** all. It wasnt that dirty, Wiz charged, yepp, that's it. Seabrook could've played the puck, but chose not to and got hammered. 2 games, fine with that. 8 games? Your out of your mind. Hopefully Cooke gets his face smashed in tonight, that'll make for an interesting verdict for tommorow afternoon.

just because other players went unpunished or got less doesn't mean the next offender should go unpunished or get a light punishment. This was the right thing to do. Sure the inconsistency is maddening, but its better than everyone getting away
