    "Going into this week, the New York Islanders were already facing a substantial amount of adversity. That, however, would pale in comparison to what they’d have to deal with from that point on.

    Lubomir Visnovsky left Saturday night’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes with a concussion. He was placed on injured reserve, retroactive to October 19th, which means the earliest he can return is next Tuesday. Just 48 hours later, Michael Grabner received a two-game suspension for his head shot on Carolina’s Nathan Gerbe.

    Fans were quick to criticize Brendan Shanahan and the NHL’s Department of Player Safety, but the punishment fit the crime. Grabner stuck out his elbow prior to hitting Gerbe and it was a clear violation of Rule 48. The league clearly recognized that Grabner was not typically a “dirty†player and that there was no injury as a result of the hit, because they only barred him from two games. It’s the shortest suspension they’ve dolled out this season."

    The only reason it is the shortest suspension is because Phaneuf didn't ax murder Tavares. That is 1 game under Shanacampbell.
