    Is this Dustin Byfuglien hit suspension-worthy? - NBC Sports

    (From the article)
    The Winnipeg Jets defenseman sometimes goes over the line in moments of rage, and Saturday’s game against the Dallas Stars provides the latest example of Byfuglien going too far. You can watch his after-the-whistle, from behind hit on Connor Carrick in the video above this post’s headline and decide for yourself: should Byfuglien once again be suspended?

    Either way, Byfuglien wasn’t ejected from this clash between two powerful Central Division teams. Instead, he only received a cross-checking penalty, and that came against Marc Methot, not Carrick. Just pure luck that Carrick did not suffer a severe injury.

    100%, hard cross check from behind into the boards at a scary distance, he could have easily broken his neck.

    You have to punish the action and not the outcome of the incident, what if something like this happens in the future and someone gets paralyzed? We saw how easily that happened to Denna Laing.

    It's stupid, unnecessary and also a chicken **** move. Don't shove people into the boards from behind, period.

    How Buff got away with that is beyond me. That is a textbook POS play and he should be suspended for it.

    I won’t excuse buffs action, but he was likely pissed that Carrick went after Scheifele. Also after the whistle.

    Which is kinda dumb because Scheifele was asking for trouble when he threw a fairly hard hit himself after the whistle to start the scrum off to begin with. Maybe Buff didn't see that Scheifele instigated the whole thing?

    In any case, it was reckless and dangerous and should have been a misconduct of some sort (probably 10 mins), with no further suspension necessary.

    Hit was after the whistle and to someone who had their back turned. Coward ****. Suspended him and take away his man card. Maybe he will get upset with me for saying that and throw my clothes int he shower like a real man does. Oh wait he was a coward about Kane too.

    He should get 1 game suspension for it. It was an overreaction but you can't do that. No different than Domi punching that dude in the face.

    Actually this is a lot different. This is about as dangerous as hockey gets because he wasnt right against the boards. Ive seen a guy get paralyzed on a similar type of hit.
    Right now the league is focusing on Tom Wilson. Everything else goes.

    Buff is a punk, and I'm surprised he's never seriously hurt anyone doing dumb s*** like this.

    Dumb play, but after watching replay, no. Not a suspension.

    No to a suspension. But I do think the DOPS needs to reach out to him regarding this "hockey play".

    Right. And Carrick wasn’t the player Scheifele hit. It’s how these things escalate.

    C'mon guys. Could be a penalty but if that is a suspension then there could be a suspension handed out every game. Christ...

    It wouldn't be the first unnecessary crosscheck he would get suspended for
