Torres deserved a suspension for sure, but 25? What makes this worse then Bertuzzi on Moore, McSorley on Brasher (sp?), and many others.

damn, 25 games? I know was a repeat offender but still.

He's a little late haha. Well there was an article about how Matt Cooke got like 15 games last year and it changed how he played. He had no majors this year. Anyone and everyone should get like 10+ games and then maybe they will stop. These 1-3 games stuff doesn't stop. Make it 10 games every time.

Well if Cooke has changed how he played, then the suspensions are working. Cause Cooke has always been a dirty player and such. And he had no majors this year? That's big for him. I really have no issue with what Shannahan and what he's been doing. I just wish someone like him was around 10+ years ago

It's the times we live in now. Everything done in professional sports is more scrutinized (sp?) and looked at as if it was being done using a microscope.

25 games is just right in my opinion. Makes up for this #@#@#@#@#@#@#@ not being suspended last year in the playoffs.

That shouldn't matter as much as the play at hand. They need to just make it 10+ and then this stops really. But there are many repeat offenders who get 5.

That's my point, they need to do this with EVERYONE, first time or 8th time.

If it is the time we live in, then why did everyone else barley get a suspension? Weber still, IMO did the worse thing in these playoffs, and get got a petty fine.

As a Blackhawks fan at first I thought 25 might be too many, and then I read the ESPN article on Matt Cooke's 17 games from last year. Excellent decision in my mind after thinking about it some more.

How the **** are people complaining that this is too much? Go watch the Shanaban video and tell me it's too much after they show Torres' little headshot montage

As a Coyotes fan, I'm really angry he was suspended for 25 games, but it doesn't matter what team you root for — he deserved a bid suspension for this. 25? In my opinion, I think that's too much. Others thought differently, so I'll just accept that.

Because where are the big suspensions for everyone else? No one is complaining that it is too much as much as we are complaining about the consistency, or lack there of.

So because they screwed up the Steve Moore incident they should forever use that awful benchmark?

I pretty much called it with my Playoffs + 20 prediction.

25 not enough? If the guy doesn't get the point after knocking someone's head off in 2007, and then not again in 2009, and then, not again in 2011, and then not again now, they should bloody well boot his arse out of the league.
