Ohlund was suspended 4 games for a vicious slash on the Wild's Koivu. There is no doubt that it was vicious and a 2-hander. Furthermore, it should be a suspendable offense. As much as I like Ohlund, you have to control yourself when out on the ice. One could argue that Koivu's leap and elbow to Ohlund's mouth/face immediately before could be a mediating factor. However, I then think about the 2 games Jones got for what he did to Bergeron and some other suspensions we have seen over the last few years and I really wonder if the NHL has got things right. Taken on its own, the 4 game suspension is about right. Taken in comparison to precedents in the league, I would say it is a little stiff. Or maybe, the league is finally going to crackdown on these things...I won't hold my breath.IcemannP.S. Boorgard (sp?) is a twit. I was reading what he was saying in regard to the game/slash and I thought that he is one who should talk. After some of his actions against the Canucks the other night - especially going after Mitchell the way he did late in the game - he is an embarrassment.P.P.S. The Canucks are going to have to dig down deep - Krajicek, Salo, Bieksa and Ohlund are now out - 4 of their top 6 defencemen. I defy any team to lose 4 top defenceman and win more than a handful of games.
