Cormier is a 2nd round pick of New jersey
and once the incident took place, they asked Lou Lamorello what he thought about it, and he totally downplayed the incident and even said that he didn't think there should be a suspension in place at all.
Cormier though should receive a lifetime ban in the Q, but the Q's commissioner is a bit wishy washy when it comes to stuff like that. David Branch would have immediately suspended the guy for life.
