    Good. I’m glad the buffoon Thorton got what he deserved. 15 games minimum is fine, though should have been 20. And for those saying that neal’s knee to the head was worse then this, obviously don’t know the difference between a player getting hit and still being concious, and another getting assaulted and knocked unconcious. People are idiots. Neal deserved a suspension and 5 is enough, but clearly to anyone with half a brain, thorton’s was ten times worse.

    The Neal hit was just as bad, only the result was different (mostly because Orpik is fragile… that was the weakest slew-foot ever and the 2 punches were to the visor with gloves on!!!)
