This suspension I don't have a problem with. Seabrook's back was to Bourque the entire time that Bourque was approaching to make the hit. This didn't look like a case of Seabrook changing positions and putting himself in a vulnerable spot. Bouque finished him hard when he had the numbers staring him in the face for a long time. Not a smart hit, and if they're cracking down on hits from behind I think a 2-3 game suspension fits a first-time offender for this particular type of check. But this one doesn't do anything to alleviate the frustration over other inconsistencies in handing out suspensions already this season.
Steve Webb for Commissioner.
