And the Lightning's depth isn't one of the primary reasons they clinched the President's Trophy in mid-March?

To put it mildly, this ruling is bullshit.

No hint of intent to injure can be demonstrated on the play and is absurd and preposterous even to suggest in this case. Again, there's no provision for a major and a game for this behavior, but there should be some clear intent to inflict an injury that you can point to before you call a match penalty. Irresponsible officiating at its ugliest.

Gourde is little, hardly a repeat tough-guy offender, never left his feet, blow was a glancing blow....Staal jumped up, skated off quickly, came back and scored a goal (i.e., not injured)....

If that wasn't it, then somebody at the league needs to show video of what the 2-minute minor for illegal check to the head looks like.
