Aaron Rome leveled a late, nasty elbow to Nathan Horton’s head in the open ice and was immediately knocked out cold. The blindside left Horton lying on the ice for a good 5 minutes before he was carted off by a stretcher. Aaron Rome was assessed a 5 minute major for the hit, but we imagine it won’t take long for him to hear from the NHL’s front office. Last we heard, Nathan Horton was responsive and moving his extremities. Today the NHL levied a 4 game suspension against Aaron Rome for the hit, do you think that is a fair punishment?
