Lombardi on the Gauthier suspension

Here’s general manager Dean Lombardi on the suspension:
“We didn’t believe he deserved a penalty, let alone a
suspension. When you
stop the tape, his elbow is clearly down and at the point of contact,
his feet are on the ice. They both ended up halfway up the boards, so
it’s not a charge.
I understand when you see it at full speed and the way they end
up on top of each other it looks more criminal than it is. When you
slowed it down, was his elbow down? Yes. Were his feet on the ice at
the point of impact? Yes.”
