So FLAGRANT becomes the loophole. As long as your hit wasn't flagrant, you don't get the full punishment. So players, have a little imagination with your hits!! Lets make this fun!!! Prize at end of season for the most imaginatively unflagrant hit!

Holy crap.

What does anyone expect Campbell to say? "Yes we dislike the Islanders."

It's pretty obvious that they don't have a set standard for what does and does not qualify for what kind of punishment. And at this point, that's just sad. They could take a page from the NFL's playbook.

Ha Ha Icelanders always getting shafted.

Seriously though, even being a Rangers fan I have looked at the play on youtube a dozen times and Mottau was trying to line up Nielsen for a huge hit. When he realized Nielson would escape the hit, Mottau extended his arm up high (which includes his elbow). I thought Nielsen got clothes lined at first. Either way that was a dirty play and should've received more than the five games Pock got, because of the result of the play.
