Zac Rinaldo suspended 8 games; nobody cares

Feels like this happened like three weeks ago, but it hasn’t even been a week. The NHL brought the hammer down on Monday, giving Rinaldo an 8-game suspension. Some think it’s right on the money, some think it’s not enough. No one has said it’s too many games, and if they do, it’s probably because they eat paper. As far as we’re concerned, it’s an okay length. The...

First, this is an awful, nasty hit. I know it's been said before, but these are the types of hits that need to be removed from the game of hockey, forever. Since Zac Rinaldo is a repeat offender (he's been suspended by the NHL for a total of six games) he could get hit with a lengthy suspension. I know, this sounds like groundhog day.
