Colin Campbell gave his Wheel o’ Justice a spin today and it landed on six games for Calgary Flames forward Tom Kostopoulos for his blindside hit to the head of Detroit Red Wings defenseman Brad Stuart which left him with a broken jaw and out of the Wings lineup for at least six weeks.
I’m honestly a little surprised it was six games myself I figured it would be a two or three game slap on the wrist, but this hit pretty clearly falls into the ‘blindside headshot’ category that the NHL is trying to get rid of.
Too much, too little, or just right? What’s your opinion?
Have a good one!
