Vote: What Do You Think of Raffi Torres’ 25-Game Suspension?

Vote: What Do You Think of Raffi Torres' 25-Game Suspension?On April 17, Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa had to be stretchered off the ice thanks to a particularly brutal check from Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres.

After being suspended indefinitely, director of player safety Brendan Shanahan made his final decision, taking Torres off the ice for 25 games.

It's difficult to say whether Shanahan was trying to make a statement with this suspension, though it could be his attempt at cooling off what has been an especially aggressive first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

No matter his intentions, the 25-game ban will have an impact on the Coyotes-Blackhawks series, and could have implications for which team ends up coming out of the Western Conference.

Considering all the implications, what do you think of Torres' 25-game suspension? Check out the poll below to vote, then add your reasoning in the comments.
