I'm gonna say nothing. It almost looks as though he had his hand on the guy's back merely to steady himself. If that's the case, then it's purely a matter of balance, and not his fault at all that the guy went into the boards.

We shall see.

If Zetterberg is at fault here, its not for shoving him from behind, but for not bracing him enough. At that speed, both are making an attempt for the puck. Expecting to get ridden into the boards, the Columbus player leaned back into Zetterberg, causing him to lose balance backwards before slamming feet-first into the boards. Expecting that incident could happen with any less interaction from Zetterberg seems impossible; barely a hand on his back going into what is traditionally a much more physical incident in hockey.

The guy "heard footsteps" braced himself against a hit that didn't come, and lost his balance. Ironically, he probably would have been in better shape if Matt Cooke was trailing him on the play.... OK... maybe not Cooke. :P

Since we have a game tomorrow, even if we don't hear from Shanny today, I bet Babs is counting on no Z tomorrow. While I do not think this was worthy of a suspension at all, Shanahan might get forced into making an example of Z (soft on the Wings much? etc.) due to perception.

Either way, this doesn't bother me much. Z and everyone else knows it wasn't malicious. A day off won't hurt him, or us.

If Hank got suspended I would be angry. I don't see it happening. He makes no attempt to push or hit the defenseman, and tries to go around him with his stick. This happens all the time. Where else are you going to put your hand in that situation? Try it, your reflex will be to put your hand up and on the players back to reach around them, not let it flop around behind you. If it were reversed and Nash did it, I would say the same thing. Unfortunate accident, undeserving of any additional punishment.

I disagree with a suspension, completely accidental because the Columbus player lost an edge and he looked ready to get hit by Zetterberg before the hit happened.

It's good to see both the Wings camp and BJs camp come together and recognize it was a fluke injury and that Zata isnt that type of player.

We'll see.... I'm hoping he, I mean Ansar, typed it wrong and meant to say no suspension

So Dreger says no suspension and Holland says there is one...Two good sources...two different answers.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

The whole "didn't extend the elbow" argument doesn't work. I feel with the language that has been thrown around, any sort of contact that could have contributed to placing a player in a dangerous or vulnerable position will get hit with the books. Not saying it's the right thing to do or good for the game, because hockey is definitely a contact sport. I just feel the way the suspensions are being rolled out, they are trying to discourage players from challenging someone for the puck in that type of situation.

Not only was it one of the most bogus 5 minute majors I've ever seen, he won't and shouldn't be suspended. It was an unfortunate play but not malicious in any way. The league is getting way to pussified over this type of stuff. 5 minutes for that? And talk of a suspension? I miss the 90's :lol:

i agree with the no call. there is a difference between having your hand on someones back and actually pushing them. z's contact was the equivalent of a hand check in basketball. it had a miniscule effect (if any) in the way the jackets guy went into the boards.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

It was the right decision. I don't know the exact rules but it was clear Z was not pushing him into the boards. There are a lot of hits like that that go under review and don't get punished.
