The question of suspension, how long is enough?

The big buzz around the league these days is mostly about the “Bertuzzi hit” going as far as shadowing the trade deadline news. I was listening to Ron Fournier (Montreal, sports radio show host) yesterday and he made some good points about this incident and the league’s standpoint. He said that each and every incident is different and must be treated differently, which is true. Also, whether the police are involved or not, will absolutely not change a thing in years to come. The law was involed on Ciccarelli’s hit, McSorley’s hit, and now Bertuzzi’s hit. Even if the law comes down on Todd, it will not stop the next cheap shot or sucker punch from happening a year or two from now.

I agree with all that up to now. BUT.
