Does Milan Lucic deserve a suspension for hitting Ryan Miller?

The Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres have been jousting for the Northeast Division title for the last couple seasons. The Bruins also knocked the Sabres out of the 2010 playoffs. So it’s too simple to say that Milan Lucic’s hit on Ryan Miller will make these two teams hate each other - they already did. Still, this just about clinches it:

Lucic received a two-minute charging penalty for that hit, but Bruins fans will be quick to point out that Miller played the puck far outside his crease. What do you think? Should Lucic face a suspension or fine for “taking liberties” with Miller? At least one PHT staffer voiced his disapproval, but we’re curious to see how you feel.

(Don’t hold back because Lucic certainly didn’t ... )
