Laraque Suspended For Five Games

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

The NHL suspended Georges Laraque for five games today for the intentional knee on knee hit to Kronwall. That’s nothing compared to the amount of time that Kronwall is going to miss but it’s about as much as they could reasonably give him. Kronwall will miss four to eight weeks with a sprained MCL. Let’s hope Laraque learns from this experience and starts to play with a little more honor.

No Suspension For Mike Brown

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

According to the Detroit Free Press the Red Wings have been informed that Mike Brown will not be suspended for the hit on Hudler in game one. No explanation was given.

If it was a clean hit, then why was he given a game misconduct? If it was a dirty hit then why would he not be suspended? It doesn’t make sense to me. Hopefully, an explanation will be forthcoming.
