Three Games for Doan's hit on Sexton

So it looks like Shane Doan is getting a three game suspension on the hit on Dan Sexton.

I for one actually think it's pretty excessive. It was definitely a dangerous play and an example of what the league is trying to crack down on, but I was thinking it was going to be more like one game - maybe two max.

As silly as some of you may think I sound, I do think the outcome needs to taken into consideration for suspensions. For example, Hjalmarsson's hit on Pomminville should definitely been given a larger suspension based on what happened to Pomminville. Plus extra because his name is so hard to spell.

The legal system takes into account what happened to the victim and so should the NHL. Breaking and Entering and Theft vs. Robbery; Murder vs. Attempted murder... People who think the action should only be taken into consideration aren't looking at the big picture. It's important that the players we all pay good money to see get to play and not have to sit on the IR.

Anyway, getting off my high horse, I really only wanted to state that Doan was getting three games for the hit. A bit excessive in my mind since nothing really came of the hit. But I suppose the NHL was using this as an example.

This FanPost was posted by a fan, and it probably sucks and is dumb.
