25 games for Torres was orginally assessed to ban him for remainder of playoffs. New hearing because of appeal. Torres missed 13 playoff gms
Add the additional 8 regular season games still to be served and you get to the 21 game suspension announced today.

There was so much garbage that was going on in the playoffs that could have been suspendable and then you throw the book at a 'no-namer'.
I have to say Dazzle's was the coolest. ROTFLOL

They should have just had him miss preseason and call it at that.

Regardless of whether it was a head-shot, that suspension was completely unfair. With all the other crap going on, he got singled out and was given a suspension more than all the others combined. Where is the consistency? How is that fair to all the other victims?
I'm all for 20+ games suspensions to help deter headshots, but don't change the rules whenever you feel like it. Shannaban fail.

He is defensively responsible, has a 'reputation' that will make other team's stay honest if they know there is a 'loose cannon' on the opposing squad.

He looks like he's getting led away in cuffs.
