30 games suspension for Chris Simon.
The NHL verdict has been laid down, and last saturday actions of Chris Simon on the ice will be penalized with a record setting 30 games. This is already Simon's 8th career NHL suspension.
Is it even enough? That is a valid question in that particular case. It has been said that Simon is dealing with off ice problems. The man needs help obviously. Technically, Chris Simon could come back on february 21st! Thats is just 2 months of time from tonight.
Will 2 months (including the holiday season knocking at our doors) be enough to shrug off all of his monsters? I believe that more time should be awarded to professionnals to fix Simon once and for all. With that being said, I think the league would better served the man by banning him for the remainder of the 07-08 season.
Anything short of this will eventually result in another serious (and maybe life threatning this time) aggression.
