It looked like a deliberate elbow to the head.

So stupid, the league should not base suspension of injury, more and more teams are going to claim their player is injured, and then play him the next game :picard:

Edit: not saying this was not a bad hit though, just frustrated with the league.

The earth looks flat depending on your perspective... what it was was a glancing blow to the side of a helmet due to a natural reaction to try to proctect one's self against a notorious cheap shot artist.

I thought it deserved about 2 or 3 games. 4 is reasonable.
I'm sure most of the people here on CDC will consider it outrageous just because the hit was on Marchand.

should have been given a bonus, not a suspension......and if you are going to get suspended, at least make sure it is worthy and hit him hard, full on next time

I'd say 4 games is fairly reasonable. I was gonna guess 3.

It was pretty deliberate targeting the head with the elbow. It didn't badly injure Marchand, but the play itself was dirty and that's what should be punished.

From the original thread:

NHL Player Safety@NHLPlayerSafety
Anton Volchenkov suspension video. http://bit.ly/YfBcRq

It's absolutely an elbow and a dangerous play, but the actual contact is glancing at best. Marchand absolutely sold it. Haven't heard anything on an actual injury to Marchand today, but perhaps we will now that the suspension has been handed down.

EDIT:

Boston Bruins@NHLBruins
Coach addressing media now pregame, said Marchand "was being reassessed by doctors this morning, so we'll have an update later today"^CS


In related news:

Joe Haggerty@HackswithHaggs
Claude Julien said he was going to deal w/ non-reaction to the Marchand hit "internally": "I don't throw my guys under the bus" #BruinsTalk
Claude Julien didn't wanna throw players under the bus but admitted past B's teams would've responded to Marchand hit
Andrew Ference on reaction to Marchand hit: "Regardless of what happened, part of having a team identity isnt about talk. Its about actions"

this is no where near the Keith elbow to Daniel but the suspension is almost the same.

Maybe team didn't react because Marchand is a notorious diver/embellish? Just my guess tho..

the hit itself kinda deserves 2-4 games IMO. however, Marchand embarassed himself (further) with that show.

dropping to his knees and then flat onto the ice....really?!?

I'm sure you also said 0 games was fairly reasonable here too.

Yes it's all just due to CDC Homers and nothing to do with inconsistency of supplementary dicipline handed out by the NHL... You are trying so hard not to be a Canucks Homer that it has directly the opposite effect. You probably automatically take a stand opposite to that of CDC in general just to prove how not a Homer you are... We are not all emotional crybabies that lack reason just because we think the NHL is doing a crappy job... maybe they are just doing a crappy job.

No, I thought that should be 5+ games. What a ridiculous thing to insinuate I said.

I thought it would be 2 games but I expected it to be 4 just because it's the Bruins. Deliberate head shot but it's funny that the Bruins aren't trying to goon it up as in the past.

Well then basing the Volchenkov hit off of what was shown to us from Nash's hit... what should the verdict be? If we are looking for consistency Volchenkov should have gotten negative games and have a couple of supsension-free games banked right now.

So in reality there is no support for a "4 is reasonable" in this scenario.

I don't like Marchand, therefore I don't agree with this ruling. Call me a Homer, what can you do about it? Nothing. I don't beleive anything Marchand or Cooke does has any truth to it. Burrows might embellish an flail around but he doesn't head hunt.

Shanahan is an absolute fool. He and the rest of the Department for Player Safety are a joke.

They completely leave star players alone. Nash, Weber, on and on and on.

Thank you Volchenkov. Your effort was valiant.

Marchand is a absolute diver and will of course be back next game.

Wow Shanahan and company really bought what Marchand was selling. I seen the hit, Marchand goes
down an stays down like the hit was more dangerous then what it really was.

Daniel gets elbowed in the face, but gets up under his own power and skates to the bench on his own.
The Sedin hit looked a little more vicious then the Marchand one.

So you're saying make the Nash hit the standard for suspension calls? Strive for consistency, even if that bar is set at absolute bull? You would've loved being in Soviet Russia then; everybody's living in terror and poverty, but hey at least we're all equal.

I don't like the random swings of suspensions either, but all I'm saying is this is actually a suspension that seems pretty accurate to me. I would have gone with 3, but 4's not so bad. I think there is support for "4 is reasonable". No reason to get buttmad over this just because it's Marchand.

Sure, it's Rat Boy we're talking about, but to be honest I think Volchenkov deserves more than four games for this. To me it is an extremely ugly hit, just the kinda hits that we're trying to get rid of.

Oh I see I insuate you wanted 0 games for a hockey hit and are floored by such an accusation but you think I would have loved it during the Stalin Communist regime in russian being happy to see people living in Terror, starving, taken to the Gulag etc.

You're the little whiner getting all butthurt because someone has a different and valid idea about it that differs from yours there little guy.

You would have gone with 3 but 4 is not bad huh? under what precedent, where is there any evidence at all from the NHL or other to say what Volchenkov did there was anything more than a penalty which was assesed in the game. I suppose if you want to be an emotional little crybaby about it, you can say it deserves 3 or 4 or 10 or 50 or whatever it doesn't matter... the point is crap far worse than this happens all the time without even a pentalty so there is no basis to say its worth 3 or 4 or whatever.
