The suspensions to Gio and Lomberg make sense. Gio did stick out his leg if without the intent to injure. It is a knee-jerk reaction (no pun intended). Not suspending Dumba is outrageous and shows that the NHL is not serious about injury prevention, or they are just incompetent. When a guy shifts his weight upwards, there is no other way to interpret his behaviour other than he was trying to clock Backlund. That is, there was intent to injure. Anyone who has played the game knows that. So, they suspended a guy for two games when the intent to injure was unclear, and allowed another player with obvious intent to injure unimpeded.
