Torres suspended 25 games. Coach Q was fined $10,000 for his comments about the officiating.

25 games is about right. Torres is repeat offender. In fact his whole career is nothing but cheap shot goonery.

Now, if they really want to make this stick, they should warn him that next time it won’t be a 25 game suspension, it’ll be a permanent one.

I would think that an entire season without pay would be just as good.

The hit itself is nowhere near worth 25 games.

Torres got 25 games because of his history.

And this was nothing compared to the Dale Hunter - Pierre Turgeon incident. Hunter was suspended 21 games. And Hunter was also a repeat offender.
