The 'Hawks Andrew Shaw gets 3 games for his shoulder hitting Mike Smith's mask as he was trying to squeeze past him behind the net. IMO, incidental contact & he wasn't head hunting. That gets 3 games yet trying to put a player's head through the glass after the final horn warrants nothing but a $2500 fine? Oh NHL, the more you change, the more you stay the same.

Shanahan is so wildly inconsistent its not even funny. Its now as if he is over correcting for his idiocy in the last week.

It appears Shanny didn't call the 'Yotes to find out that Smith isn't injured & is in the starting line-up tonight before he lowered the hammer.

Milan Lucic gets nothing during the regular season and a rookie gets 3 games in the playoffs!? Seems legit!

Shaw totally hit him on purpose. This ain't his first day in hockey. He could've easily skated up against the boards and around Smith. Good call Shanny.

And a rook that appeared to try to avoid Smith where Lucic just pretty much steamrolled Miller. I guess it's getting bad when as a Wings fan, I'm defending a 'Hawks player. That Shanny sure is a uniter! :ph34r:

He certainly could've done better to avoid contact, but Smith was also shooting the puck, spinning his body and head towards Shaw.

Three games is an absolute joke. Especially after Lucic got nothing. Shanny has seriously become less consistent than Campbell.

Other than that star players are probably not going to get suspended as long as lower line players. That's been pretty consistent.

I agree Lucic should've gotten something but in this case with Shaw I totally agree with Shanny.

classic nhl. discipline crack down only on the bottom 6 guys and not the stars. how is a "hockey play" that made contact with the head worth 3 games (no injury) and an intentional punch to the head and headslam by a star player only worth $2500 fine? I'm so confused... not to mention shaw also got ejected.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I'm quite sure Shanahan knows he made mistakes with Lucic and Weber. He can't be that blind and not see what followed soon after those incidents. He can't reverse his calls but he can continue trying to do a good job. I have this image of Shanahan that unlike Campbell he can admit his mistakes but I wonder if he'll do that in public.

He's a game-time decision.

esteef


He could have done numerous things differently:

1) Slow down
2) Go along the boards
3) Don't jump when moving by Smith

There's no way to know if he was attempting to make contact; but contact resulted either because he wanted it or because he was spectacularly stupid. Either way, it was entirely his fault.

What I don't get (other than the length of Shaw's suspension) is how after getting hit in the head, writhing in pain like he'd been shot in the face, stopping the game to be attended to by the team trainer and team doctor, Smith did not have to leave the ice to go to the quiet room for concussion evaluation.

I just can't believe how much Shanny effed this up. Playoffs shouldn't be any different than regular season and stars serve just as much time as the rest.

Shannahan is starting to wear his St. Louis Blues jersey in my memories again and not his Wings jersey. He's losing his distinction as one of the good ones.

Shanny is a *****.

If that had happened on any day but the first game of the playoffs, Weber is sitting at least 3.

If that happened tonight...he would have gotten 3 games in light of whats been going on.

Shanny is a *****. Call it what it is. He is only reacting to the unprecedented goonish BS that happened because he was a ***** and didnt do what was right with Weber.
