My guess is this will be the longest suspension of Torres's career, one that's really been a year in the making and that will be roundly criticized no matter how long it goes. But the NHL had a few golden opportunities here to send a clearer message several months ago, and they blew it. Marian Hossa is paying for that. And, in a way, Torres is, too, as he'll be the scapegoat of the week for a much larger problem at the league level.That's James Mirtle talking about the hit Raffi Torres delivered to Marian Hossa yesterday. That last sentence is right on point. The Torres hit was bad, but the amount of violence we've seen in these playoffs is on the league for their unwillingness to stick with the plan to reform league discipline. If I was James Wisniewski, I'd want my $500,000 back.
