Janssen suspended three games

New Jersey's Cam Janssen has been suspended three games for his late hit on Tomas Kaberle.

This is the same punishment that Brooks Orpik was given last March when he broke Erik Cole's neck. Chris Neil wasn's given anything last week. Ah, the Clownshoes Campbell wheel of discipline.

So Janssen gets to sit out 3 games while Kaberle sits out a couple of weeks? No way.

Seems to me the offending player oughta sit out as long as it takes for the injured player to recover, but I guess that one would be impractical to enforce.

I'm no expert, but that hit looked dirty to me.
