I know it's not just Shanahan but seriously the department of player safety has missed a lot of things in the playoffs so far.
What are some of the dirtiest things you've seen go unpunished so far?
This one stands out for me

Corey Perry's devastating high sticking to his own face. That bastard should be suspended indefinitely.

Montreal players starting crap, Subban jumping a guy, another one shooting at a Senators player, Hulk Weber he doesn't see the obvious but well he is in front of a great company with guys like Bettman.

How can stuff like this not be looked at? It seems like if it's a hockey play it gets looked at but if it's just a good ol' fashioned attempt at assault the league doesn't care.

The NHL has made it clear that it is a okay to elbow but not make a hard body check.

It's all going to be subjective no matter what.

 

You can through the angle out all day of protecting star players with no suspensions or minimal fines, I understand that, but Shanahan is in a position where it is all but impossible to please everybody 100% of the time.

The problem is he shouldn't have to please anybody, he should be 100% consistent (or his little band of merry men who come to the decisions) and they shouldn't listen to Bettman and his bulls*** stars have to be on the ice. It would be a lot better for the league if people understood what was going on, it was consistent, and there wasn't any one playing favorites. its even worse that it seems like he is harder on Detroit because he has to be to avoid looking like a homer... usually Detroit plays one of the cleaner games in the league, they have to or they'd be hit with suspensions left and right.

I think I've cracked the code:

 

100% intended, and successful, contact with the head = Not a suspendable action

 

Unintended, but successful, contact with the head = Suspendable action

 

Completely reckless and high potential of injury hit(s) to the head = Forfeiture of 0.000000000006% of the accused player's annual salary.

Are we really still stuck on this subject?  Really?


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.

This seems pretty childish to be honest. All I can think of when I read this thread for the first time yesterday was when I was in first grade and someone told on me for saying a bad word, and then I tried to bring all the others down with me by telling on them to a different teacher. Abby got a suspension for a flying elbow, it's not a huge deal. There is no need to make a thread to blame Shanahan on incidents that he's "missed" as a way to somehow reconcile your displeasure. I'm fairly certain if Abby was not suspended, this thread would not have been here and instead the tone would be along the lines of "Shanahan is letting the players play real hockey!!!"

So let me make sure I'm on the same page here; it's childish to be irritated about the league dropping the ball on setting the standard for what on-ice actions constitute fines/suspensions, but its completely acceptable to make a "Howard is average" or "We like our team", the world is falling apart, threads/posts literally every time the Wings lose?

 

Ok, buddy. :ok:

 

For the record, this first grader thinks the suspension on Abby was a good call.

So do you think Shanahan dropped the ball or not?  Cause that's what this thread is actually discussing.  Not swearing in 1st grade. 

 

I for one think Shanahan took this week off.  You don't have a game like game 3 in the Sens/Habs series and not throw the rag on those after suspending Gryba the destroyer and Abby.  And Abdelkader didn't have a flying elbow.  It was a shoulder to shoulder and Lydman's head snapped into Abby's shoulder and then his feet left the ice on impact.  However you break that one down though, to each their own, there was no elbow on the play.

The elbows that went unpunished are a joke when compared to the clean Abdelkader and Gryba hits. THe NHL is basically saying you can throw cheapshots but god forbid you hit a guy cleanly with force.
