Suspension Worthy?

In the third period of tonights loss to the Penguins, forward Marty Reasoner received a 5 minute major and game misconduct penalty for going knee on knee with Penguins forward Jussi Jokinen.

With the major penalty being handed out that started the talk of if supplemental discipline would or should be handed out on the play.

Judge for yourself:

I feel as though the major and misconduct were warranted to Reasoner.  However, I think a suspension would be reaching, especially since he has no history.  However, if he did get suspended I wouldn't complain.  

To Penguins fans saying that if this were Matt Cooke we would be calling for his head on a stick, they are right we would be.  Cooke has a reputation of being a career killer and just a dirty player in general.  He could be all transformed and stuff but that doesn't change that Marc Savard will never play hockey again thanks to Cooke.  Meanwhile, Marty Reasoner couldn't be more the opposite if he tried.  

What do you all think?  Should Reasoner get suspended?
