‘”In spite of the fact that Kaleta does not push Richards with great force, he does so at an extremely dangerous distance from the boards … Richards does not turn his back just prior or make any sudden movements that contribute to this illegal check,” said NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan in Monday’s video explanation of the suspension. “Kaleta is in full control of this play, and had ample opportunity to make a better decision.”‘
