While Boulerice on the other hand attacked Kesler knowing full well what he was doing, he should have gotten 41 games atleast. The reason I think that he did not get more was because Kesler was not seriously hurt which seems to be the rule in the NHL. If a player gets hurt the suspension is worse than if he is not. I think that the action should be punished not the result.

The rules do not require players to crush the jaw of an opponent using wooden sticks.
Seems like proper justice.

25 games is fair. If he ends up in the AHL, he should get suspended there also. They suspended Downie for a month.
