06:39 AM ET 03.17 | In Wild winger Chris Simon's mind, Ducks defenseman Chris Pronger and he committed the same crime. So on Sunday, Simon wondered why they didn't receive the same time. Three months after Simon was suspended an NHL-record 30 games for stepping on Pittsburgh forward Jarkko Ruutu's leg while a member of the New York Islanders, Pronger was handed an eight-game suspension for stomping on the leg of Vancouver Canucks center Ryan Kesler. Simon, who like Pronger has been suspended eight times, says it's a double standard.
