Eller gets hit cleanly, but in the aftermath, his face hits the ice. Blood everywhere. Match penalty. 2 game suspension.
Dustin Brown throws an elbow at Jaden Schwartz' head, and when he misses, throws out the knee to take him down. 2:00 penalty. No suspension.
What a goddamn joke.
Wow...I didn't realize that Gryba got suspended. While I feel bad for Eller, I don't really get how that hit could be anything but clean.
I definitely agree that the NHL's suspension system is completely and utterly broken. It's maddeningly inconsistent.
