Newsday: Greg Logan reports in the Islander blog at Newsday Chris Pronger was suspended eight games by the league. Ted Nolan wondered why two players with long records of being suspended got a different amount of games.

Pronger's suspension ends for the final game of the regular season so he will be permitted to play in Anaheim's playoffs.

Tsn video has Chris Pronger, Chris Simon and Islander captain Bill Guerin's comment who flat out feels this is unfair.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
What can I write that I have not written already on this? Clearly there is a double standard here and a star player must play in the NHL playoffs so he receives just enough games so that he's well rested and ready for them. Colin Campbell's explanation that he was trying to free his skate is a joke. His skate was already free after getting tangled up, he got angry and stomped down on Kesler's leg.

Sad show across the board from the league here.
