Niklas Kronwall Reacts To Cody McLeod Suspension

The Wings are excited to get defenseman Nik Kronwall back on the ice after suffering a mild concussion from a hit by Avalanche winger Cody McLeod last week. Kronwall is expected to play Wednesday when the Wings take on the Senators at the Joe. McLeod on the other hand, won’t be playing anytime soon after receiving a 5 game suspension for the hit from the NHL on Monday evening.

So how does Kronwall feel about the McLeod suspension?

“I think it’s a tough call” Kronwall said. “A five game suspension from Shanny, (Brendan Shanahan-head of the leagues discipline office) I haven’t listened to his observations but it is what it is, that’s why Shanny has a job and so far I think he’s doing a pretty good job of it.”

Since Kronwall admitted that the suspension was a tough call; does he believe that McLeod deserved more games?
