You Be The Judge: Should Andrew Ference be suspended?

While the hit wasn’t late like Burrows, it’s clear that Ference leaves his feet, elevates his shoulders, and hits Kassian in the head. If Burrows got 3 games for his hit, you be the judge, should Ference be suspended?

You Be The Judge: Should Alex Burrows be suspended?

Burrows’ hit on Emelin had all the trademarks of the kind of hit the NHL is trying to eliminate. Emelin was admiring his pass, which placed him in a vulnerable position, Burrows’ point of contact was high, and there were a couple of steamboats from the point that Emelin got rid of the puck to the point that Burrows hit him – the hit was high, the hit was late, and the hit was to a guy in a vulnerable position.
