This makes me P/O. Don't get me wrong if Ference did hit in the head I'm fine with a 1 game but what about Komarov who went for a pop shot at Kelly after the game was over. No real actions taken on that?!? Yes I am bias towards my Bruins but I also want this to be fair not a target at them.

It's a pretty clear hit to the head


Do you want a suspension or a call for a hit after the whistle which turned into a fight anyway? Are you on the right site? When did you start watching hockey?

I appreciate the intentional (or not intentional) cheap shots Ference delivers.

Screw the suspension, the Leafs should have responded.

I have no problem with the suspension.It was a clear hit to the head.The problem I have is that one guy is going into the corner looking for contact/expecting it..And one is going into the corner and hitting is the farthest thing from his mind.Grabovski had zero intention of going in hard,making a hit, therefore left himself unprotected...If he goes and tries to hit Ference shoulder to shoulder instead of reaching for a 50/50 puck..this is a non issue...

Seems fair. I didn't really care if he got suspended or not but I'm glad it's not something outrageous like half the series. 1 game is fair, it's enough to draw a line between what's acceptable and what's not, it was a pretty dangerous hit

This just saved Colton Orr from taking a beating Saturday at the hands of the hippie.
