Brendan Shanahan came down pretty hard on Dan Carcillo for his hit on Tom Gilbert in the game against Chicago on Monday. He received 7 games for the hit.
What do you guys think? Too heavy? Too light? Just right? I’d say given Carcillo’s rap sheet, it’s probably about just right.. however it might be a little on the heavy side. But at the same time, I’ve always said how much I hate these hits like this where the defenseman is pretty defenseless trying to go for a puck with the forward having free reign on him. So yah.. 7 games is fine by me.
