It's the correct call on Seabrook. He knew Backes of vulnerable, he had him lined up and it's complete contact with the head.

Why should Seabrook be suspended? Pretty simple to me. Rule 48. Backes' head was the main point of contact.

After reconsidering the Seabrook-Backes hit, the real key is that the puck wasn't there. He wasn't eligible to be hit in the first place.
