This will get a suspension and weber didnt last year with clear intent an clearly targetted the head. Oh NHL...

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

That wasn't a Clean hit. Ottawa's coach's comments after the game was inappropriate. Sorry and I never thought I'd defend my Father's favorite team the Montreal Canadians but I am. That player needs to be suspended. http://video.tsn.ca/...p/0#main/latest

that video is such a joke, Ya some of the comments may have been inappropriate, but he was square on, it was a clean hit. The montreal players rightfully so will be upset about it, but they are claiming its a clear head hit blah blah blah, it was not, he MAY have clipped the chin, but all the damage was down was his face hit the ice, the hit was a good clean hockey hit, no suspension here if I am Shanahan

I will say it again, look at Subban's hit and tell me the hit on Eller was worse. Ignore the status of the player being hit. One gets up and other doesn't but that has no bearing on if the hit is illegal or not.

 

Subban's shoulder/elbow goes right into Neil's head...

OTher than Neil not being koed that is the same exact hit Fistric got 3 games for a few years back. The fistric suspension was unwarranted and this was a clean hit, just as clean as the other.

The pussification of the NHL continues. 2 games for a clean hit, because of the result. The result can't dictate hockey, if a guy gets cleaned at center ice and fractures his ankle and the thing puts puddles of blood on the ice would he get 2 games? Jesus, at the very least this will have both teams fuming ready to pound the s*** out of each other tonight.

Stupid that they are legislating based on an injury not taking into account the play was legal.

 

Surprised guy who hit Cindy in the face with puck didn't get ejected from league.

The PK Subban hit on Neal looked like he left his feet ... just a bit.  Keep both feet on the ice and it is a legit Kronwall hit!

 

Really surprised that the Eller hit got 2 ... every analyst said clean.

So, two games.

 

Not sure I aree with Shanny's assertion that the pass is completely irrelevant. Hockey Play is a continuum; A bleeds into B bleeds into C bleeds into D etc.

I really don't like the suspension.  It punishes the consequence, and is probably for no other reason other than to put Gryba back on the ice this weekend with MTL looking for their own "retribution".  But I really don't view the principal point of contact as the head.  These plays happen so fast, I think it's kind of ridiculous to show the video in super slow-mo over and over again breaking down which part of Eller's body was impacted first.  He had the right to throw a shoulder check in that situation and it wasn't gratuitous to do so.  Gryba was probably as surprised as anybody that Diaz threw the puck towards him.  I'm almost convinced there are situations you could be placed in where you would accidentally get a suspension unless you purposefully tipped backwards on your skates and allowed the unsuspecting player to knock you over.

Why aren't they melting the ice that actually caused the injury?

 

There was no contact with the head until he landed face first on the ice.  Gryba just gotf****** hosed.  Shanny should be ashamed of himself.


Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

At this rate the NHL should just make players wear tin foil hats and bras when they play next season.


40 for life.
