Neal Gets One Game Suspension


James Neal only got one game for his reckless plays in Game 3. I dont under stand how a player can have two incidents just 42 seconds apart, both reckless, both jumping at a players head, and only get one game. I dont even know how they can believe that he was only jumping to brace himself for the first hit when he did it again 40 seconds later and has done it in the past as they stated. I know its all speculation and I have no idea what he was really thinking, but it certain looked like he knew what he was doing circling around going in for that hit. The NHL needs to really look at how they are handling suspensions. I had high hopes at the start of the year with Shanahan, but he doesn't show to be any more consistent than anything before. The NHL needs to start making some real suspension if they are as serious about head shots and player safety as they say they are. This one game stuff is a joke for hits like this.
