Neely: 'I think the league got it right'

June, 7, 2011
Bruins president Cam Neely was on Boston sports radio station 98.5 The Sports Hub this afternoon and shared his thoughts on Aaron Rome's four-game suspension for his hit on Nathan Horton.

* Happy with the suspension?: “Yes I am [satisfied with the suspension]. I would have been a little bit disappointed if it wasn’t for the series.”

* Thoughts on the hit itself: “It was late, for sure. He hit his head, so … those two areas there alone are worthy of a suspension. I thought it was a late hit when I saw it live, certainly watching the replays over and over confirmed that."

* On the Horton-for-West tradeoff: “Losing a guy like Nathan isn’t a good trade-off for us, but I think the league got it right.”

* Does he think the hit was with purpose?: “I don’t believe it was his intent to injure Nathan.”
