Cherapanov got what was coming to him. What he did to Sutter was far worse than Sutter's retaliation. Sutter could have easily broken his tailbone, injured his back or sufferred a head injury. At least Sutter came at Cherapanov head on. The hit, while a little high, was NOT that far out of the norm for hockey. I've been to hundreds of games, and seen many more on TV, and have never seen anything like what Cherapanov did. Maybe he learned a lesson of what not to do when he makes it to the NH
