I'm surprised he got that many, but surprised in a good way. I didn't think the league would throw the hammer down like they did.

As a ref I'm glad they did. There is no reason for this. Wideman states he didn't mean to, but could have done it many other ways (go around, gently move him over with your hands, etc), and cross checking a defenseless person from behind is not the way. I saw that he and the NHLPA are appealing it though....
