After all the panic during the pre-season there's been only one suspension since the start of the regular season. I'm glad if this means that players have already adjusted. Neither have I noticed a drop in the quality of the game that some feared. Could it be that regular season games are more important so players are concentrating more in all aspects of the game which includes keeping your hands down when hitting?

I think its been a combination of players being smarter in the regular season, but also a reduction in Shanahan's toughness. Right now there is a good balance IMO. The suspensions in the preseason sent a message. I think this hit some of the players, but at the same time I didn't think such a stringent standard could be kept up all season long.

Good. Letang's a cheap little ***** that gets the benefit of the doubt usually because he has some skill.

Did you hear the Pens broadcast with Errey making excuses right and left for Letang? I know some people think Ken and Mickey are homers, but even they'll call a spade a spade. On the Pens' broadcasts, though...they can do no wrong.

You'd be surprised. I don't get it either, but some fans of other teams HATE Ken and Mickey. Maybe they're so used to their broadcast teams telling them what they want to hear (like FS Pittsburgh) that they're offended by legitimate commentary and extensive hockey knowledge.

Bad suspension, shouldn't have been anything more than a 2 min penalty and perhaps a fine, but this is excessive

Updated. I think a minor penalty would've been enough, but I'm not gonna throw a fit about this one. A bit excessive, though.

Legit suspension, Letang saw his numbers for a while before he boarded him. very dangerous play.

NHL.com

Nashville's Shea Weber will have a disciplinary hearing Friday afternoon following a boarding penalty assessed to the Predators defenseman for a hit on Vancouver's Jannik Hansen during Thursday's game.

At 5:12 of the third period, Weber was penalized for boarding Hansen, and also given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.



TSN.ca

Nashville Predators defenceman Shea Weber will have a hearing with the NHL at 2pm et on Friday to discuss his hit from behind on Vancouver's Jannik Hansen.

The hit from Thursday's 5-1 Vancouver victory came in the third period. Weber slammed Hansen into the glass behind the Nashville net with a shoulder to the back. The Nashville blueliner received two minutes for boarding and an additional two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play.

The 26-year-old Weber has never received a suspension over parts of seven NHL seasons in Nashville.



Interesting. Weber's the first star player to have a hearing this season. I can't find a video of the incident so I have no idea if he'll get a suspension. With all the talk about star players getting special treatment this will probably create fuss no matter what Shanahan does.

I didn't think it was that bad. Certainly hit him in the numbers, so no question there, but I thought Hansen kind of flopped it. Not like that has stopped a suspension this year though, see: Adbelkader, Justin. Either way, did Hansen put himself in a vulnerable position immediately prior to or simultaneous to the hit? Shanny will let us know soon enough.

NHL.com

Shea Weber was fined $2,500 on Friday by NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan for an illegal hit in a game Thursday night in Vancouver.

(...)

"On all plays we deem to be illegal there are varying degrees that escalate from one level to the next," Shanahan said. "I didn't like this hit, and I expressed that to Shea Weber. I feel it was an illegal hit. I would like to see less force in that situation and that is why he's being fined. He didn't use all of his force, and did get Hansen sort of on the right side of Hansen's body -- I think a lot of Weber's impact and the sound was him hitting the glass. It wasn't square in the numbers, but it was illegal."

(...)

"The big thing for me is a player's history," Shanahan said. "That to me is something I've done so far. If you see my highest suspensions, it is when there are multiple offenses. Weber has played a long time in the NHL and played a very physical style and had no offenses. Also, there was no injury on the play.

"It is a situation where he can't make that hit that way again. He's now in a situation similar to Letang where he has a fine on his record. Letang's fine is a significant reason why he got suspended instead of fined."
