I think he went for a hipcheck on a guy who never really had the puck, 2 minutes for interference, and he should have spent the rest of the game looking over his shoulder for being cheap.

Clutterbuck pulled a Lindros, he turned across the middle of the ice with his head down, the knee wasn't targeted, nor was the head.
That was never a hip check, he leads with his knee and he is going low so definitely not intention of throwing a hip, furthermore it is an impact that Hall controls all the way, Clutterbuck doesn't move at the last second. I think a 2 game suspension is fine, Hall is a first time offender to my knowledge, and the hit wasn't particularly malicious.
