This is the second time that he gets suspended for this offense. I think a suspension is a good thing. It's not something the NHL wants to relate too, and they want to show the fans that they wont stand behind those type of gestures.
Maybe I just don't know anything since I'm not a hockey fan, but are you fucking serious? You can be suspended for making hand gestures? What are they, eight year olds in gym class? It makes you wonder if any of the people running the league have ever played a professional sport in their lifetime. Shit gets heated, people say and do things they don't mean out of anger and frustration. Once he acts on it, then punish his ass.
