Ryan Reaves of the St. Louis Blues was dinged 3 games for his greasy hit on Matt Tennyson of the San Jose Sharks on Monday night. To see video of the play and my analysis read Reaves To Have Hearing.

3 games is just not enough here. It was a completely avoidable play made much worse by very specific choices Reaves made, even with plenty of time to think about his decisions. This wasn’t a bang bang play. It wasn’t unpredictable. The contact wasn’t incidental.

When will the Department of Player Safety realize they aren’t doing enough to curb the problem?
