What we know about the eventual suspension given to Raffi Torres for his hit on Marian Hossa of the Chicago Blackhawks: That he won't play in Thursday's Game 4, as he's suspended indefinitely; and that his fate will be decide at an in-person hearing with the NHL on Friday, which typically means a minimum of five games.
Beyond that, the Phoenix Coyotes forward's suspension is anyone's guess. Don Cherry made his on CBC's Coach's Corner on Wednesday: 10 games.
"I think he'll get 10 games. I really believe he'll get 10 games. This, to me, is a cheap shot of all … one of them … I've seen [worse]. But [Hossa] had a chance. Now, you're gonna say 'Scott Stevens', but this guy never had a chance. It wasn't his fault. He was turnin'. The puck was already gone. You can't do that stuff."
Watch the full Cherry segment on CBC.ca, in which he also talks about how misguided Karl Alzner of the Washington Capitals was to wake the sleeping bear in Milan Lucic.
