Kadri will likely get 1 game, maybe 2.

At least he should.

What an abysmal mess. I liked Kadri sticking up for Marner, but go shove the guy around. Instead he takes a run at Wingels who's head was around hip height when he made contact...yeesh

The whole team looked bad last night, shaky and nervous. Hope they can get it together tomorrow

Uh...Did you mean to post the Kadri hit video twice?

Am I the only one that didn't find the Kadri hit that bad considering Wingels turned and fell? Five and the misconduct makes sense. The missed call on the elbow to Marner was just an added dagger.

I've been a long-time reader, and a first time poster, hi all.

GLG, should be a great rest of series.

Correct answer is Marchand’s tongue hitting Komarov’s face. By far the worst.

But yeah Kadri is a dirty scum too and should get a game.

Kadri already got the 5 and a game, nothing more is warranted, play on.

Kadri definately, but shouldn’t make Doughty hit any less

Doughty has always played on the edge. He's not as frequent as others, but I'd put him on the level of someone like Kessler. Kadri is in the same spectrum IMO, but this hit was Marchand-level dirty. He should get two games.

If Marchand did either of those hits, the NHL & Toronto media would be preparing for an execution at center ice before game 3...

Marchand tends to get off pretty light considering his history...

Marchand gets away with more than I've seen any other player in the Ovie/Crosby era. It's crazy.

Kadri also had a dangerous cross check on Wingels back behind the net about 4 minutes before the one that got him kicked out of the game.

They were both bad hits - and certainly the second should be suspendable. To my eyes he had time to let up, if not stop, when Wingels was on the ice.

Gotta think if its marchand no supplementary discipline would occur. Too bad Mcquaid is going to slaughter Kadri next time hes on the ice...

All I ask for is consistency.

Was Kadri's hit dirty? Hell, yes.

Did Wingels target Marner's head with his elbow? Hell, yes.

And is what Marchand did a gross misconduct (no pun intended) worthy of a suspension? Hells to the yes.

Yet there's only one penalty called, and only one hearing today.

The Doughty hit was bad. I honestly don't know if it should have been suspendible relative to other hits like that we see on a regular basis. Personally I think it is, but I'm just looking at it relative to a regular business day in the NHL.

I'm glad they suspended him though because they need to set a benchmarch. Kadri's hit? He went after a guy already down on the ice with his head at the boards. It wasn't dude fell fast before Kadri got there. He was down well before and Kadri made a b-line right for him with no regard.

Kadri's hit is 10000000X worse and should be a multiple game suspension.

Was wingles injured on the play? or did he return to action? I hate to say it but that plays a huge role in there deciding of suspension and i didnt get a chance to watch this game.

Your glasses are tinted so blue, I don't think you can actually see through them anymore.

Kadri deserves a couple of games.
Doughty probably deserved a couple of games too.

Marchand was just trying to taste the collectives tears of unfathomable sadness... straight up hockey play really.

Watch the tape , Kadri’s so called hit is targeted to the head. He had time to adjust/change the contact but actually moved up to make head contact.
Has to be 2 games, I mean does anyone think this is ok? Entertaining? Or my fave “part of the game”....it’s a product of heavyweights being unemployed in this league, and I pray someone doesn’t end up permanently injured or worse. Players that try to hurt don’t have any fear.

Never returned. To the guy saying wingels fell and was turning into the boards when kadri hit, visit your doctor.
