Whats the point of the hit? He could have easily beaten it and the icing could've been waved but he chose instead to hit someone. Thats straight dirty, although it was an awesome hit, still an inappropriate time for it. 2 games was too much, a fine and a game misconduct would've been substantial enough. And whoever mentioned the Gorges slam, that was one of the greatest perfect hits ive ever seen and it was an appropriate time, situationally that wasnt half as bad as this one was, even if gorges got his bell rung.
