You're funny. An intentional reverse hit to the head of an unsuspecting player that earned Voracek a two game ban recently, only counts as a precedent for players on teams other than the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Gourde suspended for 2 games.

My 2 cents: that's the NHL trying to deny the Tampa Bay Lightning a place in history.

Brad Marchand? If he had made that hit? Crickets and maybe a two minute minor.

All the DPS videos on checks to the head at slow motion look like the player could have made the shoulder the main point of contact. What annoys everyone is the missed calls particularly high sticking and slew foots. There will be a time when an off ice official will correct these missed calls.

I can see it now. Bettman convenes a meeting of the NHL senior staff. “We must stop the Lightning from setting the record for team wins.”

“But how do we do this?” Bill Daly asks.

“We’ll suspend a 4th liner for 2 games. That will stop them.”

I do think that Gourde doesn't really make or break things, but he's not a 4th liner.

He's a 20 goal scorer coming off a 25 goal season.

Fourth liner? Really?

To elaborate on my point: you have a borderline call on a player who already essentially sat out one game because of the match misconduct. That player is also a first time offender and also happens to be so small he could punch a penguin in the nuts from the standing position. Not a dirty player, and not built to be a physical player. He's a scorer.

The NHL looks at that situation and says, "They've already clinched the President's Trophy. They're threatening some pretty serious records. There's no downside because it ultimately doesn't hurt Tampa Bay's standings position and it protects some of the records of some of our most sacred O6 clubs. Let's make an example of him."

He’s been on the 4th line for the past few weeks.
