Scotty Upshall Suspended 1 Game at Worlds

Now this is a ugly. No if's, or's, or but's about it. This is unwarranted and dangerous. Headshots are bad enough, and this is lining up a guy, plain and simple. Whether he caught the guy with his elbow in the jaw, whatevs, not the point.

He skates across half the Olympic Rink (bigger than an NHL rink for you n00bs) and absolutely clocks him. This is effing Hungary dude, settle down. What's the point? Oh you wanted to prove Canada's hockey superiority to Hungary? Point taken? Or was the point taken when you won 9-0? Dick.

He got a 5 minute and a match for that nonsense, which equates to an automatic one game suspension. No world on any other penalties for him.

This we can say for sure, if he was still on the Flyer's roster, he would've been suspended by Bettman.
