Under normal circumstances I would agree but something that was missed and its a damn shame that Ron Mclean brought up was the fact Keith "isn't a first time offender". HNIC had tape of Keith doing the exact same thing to Matt Cooke last year. Hit happened... Keith got angry and then later came in, led with the elbow and took Cookie right in the head.
2 min penalty but nothing else. Cooke didn't sustain injury but lets face it, Cooke's head is rock hard (and I kinda always liked the cookie monster when he played for us).
Bottom line, If Shanny wants to dig he can find precedent. If he wants to find audio confirmation of the threats made, he can find it. How many parabolic mikes are in a building at any given time trained on the players..... how much jawing between benches is heard.
Either way, if Shanny wanted precedent and evidence, it was there for the taking and given Chicago's schedule at that exact moment, he had the time to go looking for it.
meh, can't change the past. Hopefully we can send that POS (Keith) a signed photo of Daniel drinking from the cup, after scoring the winning goal in the SCF. "Wish you were here bitch, Best Regards, D"
