The league has doled out a completely reasonable and not at all overzealous punishment for the menacing Pastrnak, and I, for one, applaud them. It was a completely fair and just decision on their part.

Good move, Department of Player Safety. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. We salute you.
