It's A Joke

1 game for Pronger? Does the fact that he's a repeat offender play into this anywhere? I don't care if this is the Finals, that warrants more than one game, especially since Pronger is stupid enough not to learn from the Holmstrom incident.
Also, the league says they suspended him because McAmmond was hurt on the play. That shouldn't matter at all.
I wonder, if this was, say, Shawn Thornton, if he would only get one game. The status of the offending player shouldn't matter either.
Chris Pronger is a dirty player. And he deserved at least 3 games for what he did. And I think even I'm being generous, given his hstory. But, the NHL comes through with a limp-wristed punishment again. I tell you, he's gonna keep doing this until the NHL sends him a serious message.
