Georges Laraque has officially been suspended for five games for his knee-on-knee hit on Niklas Kronwall Saturday night. Laraque met with Colin Campbell and the NHL today to discuss the play and for Laraque to explain his side of the story. Former Red Wing Brad May had this to say about the play and punishment:â†µ
"If they summon you to Toronto, it's at least four games," said May, who has been through the process.â†µ
May joked, "He probably didn't mean to hurt him, Georges is just too heavy on his skates. The punishment should be five games and skating lessons."â†µ
So the league decided against the skating lessons.
