    So who does everyone think will be the Hawk to take him out when we finally play against him? I’d like to see him leveled over and over again during the first two periods and then have him get annihilated in the third. But thats just me.

    Bollig and Carbomb must both fight him. He WILL be attacked.

    That said, it would mean even more if Seabrook went at him.

    Doesn’t this undermind his golden boy in charge of punishment? The whole system is a joke.

    I didn’t read any details, but it seems like Bettman is undermining the NHL disciplinarian (czar, whatever title Shanahan answers to) and is cutting into the league’s credibility a little.

    I don’t believe it’s of the utmost importance that a Blackhawk player fights him, but obviously that sends a message (…Joey Kocur/Claude Lemieux or Jay Miller/Chris Nilan sort of thing). It would be very good if Raffi Torres encounters some justice – hopefully, someone will headshot him (on just a “hockey play”, “finishing a check”) into a coma. (…for the good of the game, “for duty and humanity”…like that)

    ….oh, and if there’s a survey going – I think Bettman is a douchebag.

    What a bitch move by Bettman. This is a deliberate reduction to make sure that Torres gets off easy and that he doesn’t face the Blackhawks. Meanwhile, Hossa’s status is unknown. I would love to see Toews clock Count Chocula with his next Conn Smythe.

    The NHL has no clearly defined rules to discipline players with intent to injure.

    Case in point, Shea Weber only being fined for slamming the Red Wing player’s head into the glass in the first round of the playoffs. Brendan Shanahan’s rationale was because serious injury did not occur.

    If you read Gary Bettman’s statement in reducing Raffi Torres’ suspension, one would think he was making a case to INCREASE the length of the suspension.

    The only way to solve this huge problem is for Gary “Beavis” Bettman and Brendan “Butt-Head” Shanahan to resign immediately and replace them with people that seriously want to end this nonsense.

    (P.S.: “Beavis” and “Butt-Head” references plagiarized from Les Grobstein)
