    This was what, maybe 3 or 4 years removed from mcsorely clubbing brashear in the head with his stick?

    It was a different time, and neither play earned an official lifetime ban. If that was a lifetime offense, then it should have been for both plays IMO.

    Coincidentally, both plays happened in GM Place.

    This is missing the part where he drives his head into the ice which is what did the damage. So no not the same thing.

    He was KO'd and fell while todd was still hanging onto his jersey. My point was the action should be punished, not the injury.

    Many sucker punches. Some of them knocked out. Some hurt. What he did when it comes to his punishment it should reflect what he did, not what happened to Moore. Contact sports with fist fights often result in injury. It's what they signed up for. Everyone had seen an NHL game before Moore got hurt, this play happened often in that time frame.
