Soo.. Yesterday, this happened:

Jalasvaara, the Dynamo Moscow player getting pummeled is currently in hospital because of a damaged eyeball and a torn conjunctiva. He'll be under observation for at least two weeks, to determine if he needs surgery or not. He's also concussed.

As for Jevgeni Artjuhin? He'll be suspended for the next three games. THREE GAMES! For what essentially amounts to a fraking assault! And it would've been just two, but one game was added because of past infractions.

And because the thing wasn't sickening enough, Artjuhin's comments about it are on a complete level of their own. According to his press conference, he:" Didn't want to cause serious injury." What the hell do you think repeatedly hitting someone on the head like that would do, but injury! Also, complaining about how he himself had gotten injured from the Jalasvaara hit that preceded the situation, I don't even know what to say to that..

I don't even care about how you feel about hockey and fighting, but when it comes to hitting players, who have no way of defending themselves, especially somewhere as vulnerable as the head, there's just no way of justifying that.
