Don't be obtuse guys.
Of course Carter was left in better shape than Gagner.
Of course playoff games mean more than exhibition/october games.
Of course Keith gets special treatment (even to the extent where being a repeat offender is no longer a factor).
Where's the justice? Are you serious?
Outraged at the inconsistency?
The league suspends on the result, the name of the offender, what month it is, how much they care about the franchise employing the offender, the name of the injured player.. in roughly that order.
0 games missed, Norris Trophy winner Duncan Keith, June, Original Six franchise, Carter = 1 game
Long term injury, certifiable insane person (just ask Dallas Eakins) Zack Kassian, September, Pacific coast franchise, Gagner = 3 games + 5 more that count
