I actually think the refs are extremely lucky the game didn't get far uglier. I agree the hit should have been 5 + game, but at least after the first scrum Keith should have gotten a game misconduct just to get his ass out of there. Probably Bieksa should have gone too, fortunately he didn't do anything stupid after that (plus no Hawks were willing to take him on apparently).

But the bad news today is that Daniel is not feeling well.

"#Canucks Henrik said he spoke to Daniel last night after he got back to Van. Still not feeling well."
"While the NHL maps out its discipline hearing plan for Duncan Keith...Daniel Sedin is not well and will be further evaluated later today."
"Henrik talked to Daniel last night after he arrived back in Vancouver. Still not feeling great, dealing with headaches. #Canucks"
If there was something that changed in the eyes of the league to make them consider a longer suspension for Keith, it seems to be Daniel's health.

Did he hit him in the head...yes.
Should it have been a penalty...yes.
A suspension...by the letter of the law (whatever law that is the NHL is following these days)...yes.
But I do not believe there was any intent other than to finish his check with his shoulder to Keiths body as hits are meant to be.
Thus I do not think he can wish anything other than that he should have been more aware of where Keiths head was. It was still within the realm of being a hockey play.

Clean it was, solid body shot along the boards, shoulder caught a bit of chin along the way......suck it up Duncan.
