How is it he gets 3 games for that yet Letang's slash to Stalbergs face wasn't even a second thought to the league?

1. I wish it was Letang that got hit.
2. I don't mind the suspension, but I'm just curious what would have happened if the shoe was on the other foot.

The Letang slash should have been reviewed perhaps, but not nearly as bad of a incident as this.

3 games in the midst of a very close playoff series to a key player is a bit too harsh. Is Orpik a repeat offender?

I believe the video said he had 2 previous suspensions

Deserved. That was dirty as fuck and everything that the NHL says that they want out of the game.

Funny how now they note career long suspension history.

Keep improvising, nhl!

Lets see what they give Letang for his hit to the head.

A well deserved suspension. He had plenty of time to avoid the attacker but changed direction specifically to target him high. That bullshit has no place in the game.
