In my view, 3 games might even be too much. I was watching Sportsnet and some plug analyst said he thinks it should be upwards of 10 games. Seriously, this is what the league has come to... suggesting 10 game suspensions for a borderline dirty hit. Here are the facts as I see them: 1. The puck had just barely left Sedin's stick when Kadri hit him. It wasn't a late hit. 2. Sedin was alone near the net. Kadri was obviously trying to prevent a goal, there was little maliciousness involved. 3. The initial point of contact was the shoulder, not the head. Sedin only had to leave the rink originally because he hit his head on the ice. 4. A still-frame at the point of contact shows that Kadri didn't leave his feet on the hit as some were claiming. 5. It was a blindside hit that Sedin probably wasn't expecting with the score at 5-2, but blindside hits are not illegal. 6. Kadri has been known to be involved in this type of situation throughout his career and has prior suspensions. All things considered, yeah it's a dirty hit, but it's not a suspendable infraction. There is a difference. If Kadri were to get anything, it would likely be because of his prior offenses.
