Flyers Zac Rinaldo suspended four games for hit on Chad Ruhwedel

New, comments

The league has suspended Rinaldo for the rest of the Flyers' regular season. Agree?

Last night the Buffalo Sabres saw their list of injured players grow, partly in thanks to a dirty hit to the head by Zac Rinaldo of the Flyers on Chad Ruhwedel. Today, the NHL handed down a four-game suspension to Rinaldo, where he will miss the last four games of Philadelphia's regular season.

Ruhwedel left the game and it was later determined that he suffered a concussion on the play. Rinaldo, who will be serving the second suspension of his career, put some of the blame on Ruhwedel, saying, "Bad timing and a little vulnerability on his side of the puck, too. So my bad and his bad at the same time." Whatever you say, Zac.

What do you think about the ruling, DBTBers? Should Rinaldo miss playoff games as well as the last four games of the regular season?
