The NHL waited until around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night to announce punishment for Friday's debacle on Long Island in a transparent attempt to bury the news and try to push this story under the rug. But nothing the league does is going to make us forget what happened, and its discipline czars certainly can't logically explain this: Eric Godard's automatic 10-game suspension was upheld because he prevented his goalie from being attacked by a kid who was called up from the minors the same day as part of a clearly premeditated attempt to injure Penguins players; Trevor Gillies only got 9 games for trying to drive an unsuspecting Eric Tangradi's head through the glass, concussing him, then taunting him; and Matt Martin got a paltry 4 games for a blindside attack on Max Talbot that instantly caused every hockey fan who witnessed it to think of the Todd Bertuzzi assault on Steve Moore. Oh, and the league fined the Islanders $100,000. I'm sure Charles Wang, the owner who signed Rick DiPietro and Alexei Yashin for something like a combined $130 million, is really going to sweat that. Didn't really think this one through, did you Colin?
