    It's a game of inches and happens in a split second. If he is one inch lower and gets his shoulder pad, there is no discussion. I don't think it was a vicious play. Careless maybe, but last I checked, carelessness resulted in an in-game penalty, not this kind of suspension. The NHL sometimes.... like, come on.

    I would think he still gets a game if he was given a penalty. If he had been given a 5min, it could have been 2 games. Maybe Wpg is lucky

    Call me the conspiracy theorist, but with Suter and Parise out, MIN needed an edge to make the series closer... Take out Morrissey for one game and you have your chance. I also think it appeases the Minnesota franchise...

    Given his disciplinary history, I think a suspension was heavy. While perhaps avoidable and certainly a penalty, it was not a pre-meditated, clear attempt to injure, or to target the head with an intent to injure.

    I agree... I thought it was going to be a fine, a slap on the wrist.

    I love a good conspiracy theory but I don't see it here. There's no doubt in my mind that Morrissey didn't intentionally deliver a brutal crosscheck to E.Staal's neck, but the hit was optically horrific. Accident or not, this was scary, and stung Staal to the point where he was initially frozen in his skates.

    IMO, the NHL was in a no-win situation. Personally, I don't think anyone (including Staal) thinks the hit was premeditated or a deliberate act, but if you let it slide, it sets a horrible precedent. Players need to be accountable for their actions, even if it's a slip during the heat of battle. One thing's for sure - if Morrissey had a history, he might have been looking at 4 games. He only received one, because he's a good dude with no track record.

    Players need to be very careful with these type of crosschecks. Morrissey may be small by NHL standards, but he's a pro athlete that is strong in general. Although accidental, a reckless hit like that could break someone's neck or do serious damage.
