Default Brashear Suspended 6 Games

Washington Capitals - News: Caps' Brashear suspended for a total of six games - 04/27/2009

So 1 game for pushing (pathetic) and 5 games for his cheap shot. I think 1 is too many for the push, not sure what I think about 5! So then who's worse - Avery vs. Brashear?

Way to much for what he did.

Cry baby Rangers.

Tortorella should have gotten a 6 game suspension.

As a caps fan I'm definitely biased here... but I agree with the 1 game for the pre-game push. Apparently they were specifically told not to initiate contact with opposing players during warm up and he definitely skated right up and then shoved Orr, so i can't get angry at the 1 game...

5 games for a slightly late hit? I dunno... it was a bad hit but if Betts hadn't been standing there admiring his amazing dump-in... eh, its just too bad Betts got so seriously hurt. No one wants to see that.

Brashear played about 2.5 - 3 minutes a game during the playoffs here.

This is the downside to the NHL playoffs, they want it to be too clean.

Pfft... Ruutu would take both their mommas and body slam them into the ice, and then gloat over their prone bodies.

I agree with the 1 game for the pregame stuff. I would say 3 games max for the hit. The hit came 2+ seconds after the puck was gone and he threw a forearm/elbow (can't tell what hit him) to Betts' head. Playoffs or regular season notwithstanding, it was a dirty play and I think the punishment fits the crime, maybe 2 games too many though.
