Witt gets 5 games for Hagman elbow

1

Pretty much what I figured. I've already said my piece on the situation here. So many Islanders fans predicted this. I'm not against the length on principle -- what gets me is the fact it relates to no other suspensions handed out this year except for ... another Islander's.

Nielsen takes the high road

+

"Yeah, he definitely got his elbow up, but maybe that's a natural response to when you try to catch someone who's going by you. I'm pretty sure he didn't try to hurt me like that," Nielsen said. "But I didn't see him, either. Andy Hilbert was in between us, so I didn't see he was coming." Jibes with my original interpretation, where I and most Isles followers fumed about how the NHL could pretend it wasn't a head hit, not to mention sneak attack.

How *does* Campbell's Magic Suspension Ball work?

+
"In his infinite wisdom, Campbell decided it wasn't a head shot and, therefore, deserved only a two-game suspension. ... Apparently, the league decided Mottau didn't follow through cleanly and clearly to the head because Nielsen caught sight of him coming and recoiled sufficiently to avoid taking it directly. [edit: And the leg injury resulting from that life-saving recoil has him out 8-12 weeks.] So, because Nielsen reacted to protect himself it's not considered a blow to the head? Ridiculous." --Greg Logan, On the Islanders Beat Once again: We need an explicit policy. We need an explicit policy. We need an explicit policy. Repeat until fixed.

Report: Pock gets 5 games

3

I'm not surprised to hear Pock will be suspended. I am surprised to hear it's 5 games -- 3 more than Ruutu and 2 more than Kostopoulos. Not equating these three incidents, just wondering where in the world the rhyme and the reason comes from. Can I say again: An actual policy might be helpful? It's difficult not to see this as making an example of the no-name player on the unheralded team.
