Sucker punches are dangerous, he absolutely should have been suspended. By not suspending him you set a precedent that hitting a guy from behind and to the side of the head with your balled, gloved fist is okay to do. Very disappointing. It was absolutely like Bertuzzi, the difference being Bertuzzi fell on top of his body doing more damage, Moore being pretty much out cold and in a very vulnerable position.

The DOPS doesn't know what the word precedent means.

Hey now, the precedent that "gloves punches to an unsuspecting player and from behind aren't suspension worthy" was actually set last month when Pacioretty got off scott-free from this:


Hall only got a fine because Lyubushkin left the game, Letang didn't.
