The NHL has suspended Raffi Torres in a way that rarely, rarely happens (Matt Cooke and Todd Bertuzzi were subject to something similar). He’s been suspended for the second round of playoffs. Whether that be three more games or six, that’s his deal. He can’t play in round two.

I doubt the NHLPA will love this, it’s just…odd. How can you say a play is worth X… but possibly Y if other things unrelated to that play happen? Something is worth what it’s worth, and in my mind, you have to quantify it and live with that decision.
