However, it is kind of insane that Raffi has now had incidents in 3 consecutive games that were reviewed by the league. I'm not in agreement with the league crackdown, but it seems like he's having a hard time getting the message they're trying to send. He's lucky he didn't cause injury or I think they would have hammered him with a much longer suspension given his recent history.
Face facts - EVERY infraction is being followed-up with a fine and suspension --- the League wants hitting of any sort ELIMINATED from the game entirely so ALL that's left is 60 minutes of "exciting" shoot-out hockey,........enjoy the sport while you can,...it''ll soon be GONE,...
