    How many games for the 3rd man in throwing punches at a defenceless player?

    Unless Kane has a history of doing this(and they want to send a message to stop) I don't get it, I've seen worse not suspended

    None, because Vatanen and Kane weren't fighting.

    Kane deserved the two games. It was an extremely stupid hit.

    Yep, the suspension is a joke. First time offender and nothing called for Stoner getting up and throwing punches at Kane as he's completely defenseless being held by the other Ducks player.

    What a joke.

    i figured he would only get one game. realistically he had his numbers the whole time, was an unnecessary dumb hit. oh well. more time for pushups

    I don't know about Kane's history, but he saw his numbers the entire time and still elected to finish the hit. He basically has no excuse at all.

    The NHL is trying to put an uppity (player) back in his place. I'm sure the majority of NHL fans will agree with this.

    Yah I saw the hit. I was surprised there wasn't a huge thread about it considering it was Kane.

    Also the fact that he was mugged afterwards by multiple players. The hit was bad but the retaliation was ridiculous.

    HF has a weird hive mind when it comes to who gets a thread for questionable hits.

    MacKinnon's elbow didn't get one till the following day and Kane didn't get one at all.

    This is league is a joke.I've never seen so many bizarre ,blown,missed and WTF calls.
    Kane probably deserves a game. Stoner deserved more than 2 mins.

    I don't know what's worse: that Kane got suspended or that Stoner didn't.

    Stupid hit. No reason to follow through on that. There's really nothing that anyone can defend

    Thats 2 minutes for boarding, and it should have ended there. Can't wait until 2018 when there will be no hitting and they call fouls.

    Boarding is boarding, no matter if it's called or not. This time it was called. Also, calling Kane a first time offender because he's never been suspended doesn't mean he hasn't done stupid things in the past. I feel he could easily have been suspended for other hits and/or unprofessional behavior on the ice. He's no angel.

    Maybe worth a game, Kane didn't hold up at all. But did Stoner get a 10min/misconduct? Some enforcer idiocy right there.

    Yes, you're not allowed to hit players from behind like that. It's weird.

    So that hit was worse than the average two minute penalty for boarding?

    He'll have more time for pushups at least.
