On Wednesday night in Chicago, San Jose Sharks forward Mike Grier drilled Blackhawks defenseman Aaron Johnson from behind and into the boards. Johnson spent a couple of minutes on the ice writhing in pain before finally skating off the ice and onto the team's injured list. Grier got a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct, and is certain to be waiting by the phone for a call from NHL disciplinary czar Colin Campbell to hear if any supplementary discipline is in store.
So what say you, dear readers? Is a suspension in order, or should Grier -- who first caught my eye with a devastating open ice hit while at Boston University -- skate away without any additional punishment?
