Listen, Buchnevich deserved the suspension. I’m glad someone did something borderline dirty to a Caps skill player last night. It’s not an eye for an eye, but whatever, it will do.
But let it be known that the Rangers paid $250,000 and got a 1 game suspension for retaliation. Meanwhile, the guy that committed aggravated assault got a $5,000 fine. This league is a joke.
