So Shanahan set the precedent just two hand lumberjack any player without injuring them badly and you won't be punished all that much, if at all.

Nope, next time Shanahan will come up with some other "explanation" to justify his decision... Again, it really depends on who the accused and the victim are. :roll:

True star players are pretty much above the law.

But mostly shanahan protects the heads of players, he actually gave Norris trophy winner Keith 5 games for that elbow on sedin.

Why did Keith only get one game for his intentional high stick on Carter? Carter was injured too.

So I left Tibet to fly down for a Yangtze river cruise. Get on my ship and head to my cabin. Turn on my tv and catch BBC just as they start world news. Now I expect to hear about terrorists in Kenya or Christians being blown up in pakistan.

But what I see on my little tv on the Yangtze is a good old fashion brawl and a commentary on the violence in North American ice hockey.

No sports coverage of baseball or football or any other hockey news but 4 minutes dedicated to this one game!

I had to laugh really.

Glad to see that the NHL has its suspensions under control again.

Be back in time for the season opener if I don't blow away in a typhoon!!

I laugh because I don't think there is enough beer in the house to drown my despair at what an unethical joke league discipline has become.

I think I have just about run out of outrage at this point. Either that or they upped my meds without telling me... :hmmm:

BTW, where's 'ole Tuna-head now to go on about his team doesn't get favourable treatment from the league?
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

He has no history of this type of conduct...LOL.!


Yeah but Soapy, he has an official history NOW. :thumbs:

We all know the league favours certain teams.

That's not gonna change.

But there IS good coming out of this.

John Scott has just shown the league how to get under the leaf skin.

Kessel is a psycho and Clarkson is a moron.

The part I really like is next time they're both repeat offenders.

I like the way Friedman points out other teams in their division are now ready for leaf tactics:

Karma's a bitch! :mex:

People are acting like this is the first time this has happened. How many games did Taylor Hall get when he two-handed Michalek behind the play last year? Hell how many did Peverly get when he did it to Bieksa in a SCF game?

I'll say what I said in the other thread where supplementary discipline is being discussed (albeit a little more briefly)..

Norris trophy winner Duncan Keith, who plays for the Original Six franchise the Chicago (ie. third largest media market in the USA) Blackhawks, high sticked a player who did not miss any games as a result, in a playoff game in June.

Honestly guys, just remember that "fairness" and "consistency" and "punishing the act/intent rather than the outcome" aren't even close to the top priority when it comes to supplemental discipline. There's a whole lot of head scratching and teeth gnashing going on over these extremely predictable outcomes..
