    That'll teach Mackinnon not to get punched in the head unsuspectedly ever again

    Darn rookies gotta earn their stripes !!

    It's not roughing when you punch a guy in the back of the head...

    Keep your head up rook. Score 30 goals once in five years doesn't mean you're untouchable.

    Shoulda been a penalty but let’s chill with the suspension talk.

    Crosby literally grabbed Subban’s head & dribbled it off the ice & didn’t get a penalty.

    Subban is going to have to do a lot more than that for the NHL to sack up and suspend him in the postseason

    Roughing is an offense and penalty in ice hockey when two players are in a minor altercation. The incident would have to be minor for either player to be categorized as such an offense such as: A player striking another opponent. A goalie using their equipment to punch an opponent

    It won't be a suspension, but it absolutely should be. A punch to the back of the head - which is precisely what this was - does not belong in the game. The day the NHL gets serious about head injuries this stuff will start getting suspensions.

    Probably should have been a penalty (Just for PK) but that's it. No supplemental IMO.

    "Lol" it was a full wind up that started at his waist. This is hockey, not neanderthal central.

    Defending a dirty play by referencing another dirty play...not exactly a convincing argument.

    For the record, I doubt Subban will be suspended. Not even sure he SHOULD be suspended. But it's still just a ridiculous move by him. WTF was he thinking?

    take off the homer shades for a second, the majority of your fanbase disagrees with you.

    That's the kind of **** that enforcers kept out of the game, Subban should have been looking over his shoulder for the rest of the game.

    Ah, yes. "Homer." And when that's all people got I generally stop wasting my time with them. The majority of the Avs fanbase - if you'd like to come over to our board - and a large portion of HF and the comments I've seen elsewhere on the play think Subban is a dirty POS.

    It doesn't look that bad to me. A different angle might tell a different story, but he could've easily hit the upper back with the brunt of it and the contact with the head was just the follow-through. That doesn't make it legal, so a penalty might've been deserved on it, but I don't see that being suspension worthy. Haula did worse to Kopitar (shot to the face in a non-hockey play) and the DoPS didn't step in to give him anything.

    Cool, show me examples of this narrative of PK consistently getting away with stuff that others don't.

    No clue. Definitely not smart & I wasn’t trying to defend it.

    penalty worthy but nothing to see here. PK needs to get under his skin by playing hockey, not cheapshots

    Doughty, Marchand, Subban, Mcavoy, Hedman, Perry.... good lord, the NHL Department of Players Safety may be burning the midnight oil.

    Last year, the DOPS had only two standout situations (Calvert/Kuhnackl, Draisaitl spear). This year....... yeesh.

    Penalty is enough for this. No suspension. Please don't compare this to the Bertuzzi sucker punch...
