Last weekend wasn’t a banner one for the NHL.
When the dust settled, three players — Dion Phaneuf, James Neal and Shawn Thornton — all faced disciplinary hearings for incidents in their respective games. Phaneuf and Neal have already learned their fates — suspended two and five games, respectively — while Thornton will learn of his punishment for attacking Pittsburgh’s Brooks Orpik on Friday.
But will the punishments be enough?
That’s one of the questions we answered in the latest edition of PHT Extra. Jason and I spoke with NBC’s Kay Adams about suspension lengths, the optics from this weekend and what — if anything — needs to be done to correct on-ice issues.
