Lundquist gets off scott free for his criticism of refs after game 6? Joel Quenville has 10,000 reasons to be pissed about that.

I'm glad that Washington won, but the Caps' OT winning goal looked like GI. Thomas stopped the initial shot from Knuble, but then Knuble bumps Thomas in the crease and Ward scores on the rebound.

was it reduced to a total of 8 only or 8 games off the original and rightfully so 25 games? The NHL and the NHLPA are such stupid asses at times.

Hossa still hasn't woken up so he can't comment

According to this story, the suspension was reduced by four games, from 25 to 21 games. Bettman sticks his nose in the business of his employees to do something that will get him a non-boo somewhere, no doubt.

Seventy-six days after Raffi Torres concussed Marian Hossa and 46 days after he appealed the 25-game suspension that followed, the Phoenix Coyotes forward was awarded a reduced sentence.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman deemed Torres' hit to be worth four less games than disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan after an appeal.

Bettman announced a 21-game ban for Torres on Monday, down from Shanahan's original ruling of 25 games on April 21. It was an extremely rare move by the commissioner. One thing he and Shanahan agreed on was the dangerous nature of the play.

Of course, it's a team that is owned by the NHL, but that's just a coincidence. Of course.
