If you follow us here at The Morning Skate you should know by now that I’m not a huge suspension guy. I live for the rough and tumble style of hockey and hate to see the game start to turn into a soft hug it out fest. Having said that, you at least need to toss a couple games to Johansen. For all the people out there saying he didn’t mean to, I sort of believe you. I’d have a tough time thinking Ryan Johansen would karate chop a defenseless player up high but regardless you can not be that careless with your stick. You have to remember that these guys are NHL professionals and can could probably do open heart surgery by toe dragging a puck. I didn’t watch the game so I don’t know if there was something leading up to this but IMO it doesn’t matter. I’d give Johansen a game or two but you never know with the department of player safety so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
