Guess the length of Simon's suspension
Where will Colin Campbell's wheel of justice fall?
"Let's just see if Colin Campbell finally does something about this stuff and doesn't give him three games like he gave that other meathead from New Jersey," Sean Avery said.

Hockey's a game you play with what is essentially a weapon in your hands at all times; it should never actually be used as one. Had Simon struck Hollweg a few inches lower, it could have been a dangerous whack to the throat. Had he hit him a few inches higher, we could be talking about the loss of an eye or possible brain injury.
That, for lack of a better term, is just flat out stupid, and it shouldn't have any place in hockey. I'm absolutely on board with the movement that says Campbell et al need to start putting some real teeth into these suspensions, and that starts at the 20-game mark.
