    I keep on seeing this, but I cannot think of anything further from the truth. There are several factors and things that happened in this case that may happen ALONE every game, but not all at once.

    Afterwhistle scrum
    Blatent Slewfoot
    Two or three punches on a defenseless guy
    In a vulnerable position
    Brain trauma

    All 5 of those things do not happen all at once to the same player every game. That's simply not accurate.
    Kings Provisional and mugs like this.

    Bettman upheld the suspension (huge shock). NHLPA apparently argued that the suspension should have been 10-12 games.

    Full text of the ruling:

    I assume the NHLPA will go to the arbitrator next.
