, another one shooting at a Senators player,

 

This one blows my mind and I am shocked it isnt being talked about more in the media.  The only thing I can think of it the media was told not to discuss it.  He could have killed someone.  It's not like he just flipped it at him.  He took a full windup slapshot.  To me that is a match penalty intent to injure and he should sit 5 games.  Unreal that this wasnt made a bigger deal.

No injury, no suspension? That's the logic these days? Even when a ref is on the other end. :lol:

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.

Right, where did I say I promoted any of those threads?

 

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.

I don't think he dropped the ball; Abby clearly elbowed the guy in the head if you watch the video from the angle near the benches. You can make all the excuses you want and complain about how other teams are getting away with hits, but at the end of the day it would never be mentioned if Abby wasn't suspended. I'm not going to argue that Shanahan has been perfect, because he hasn't, but I'm not going to whine about it and point out every trivial play from the past that he's missed because I'm upset that a Red Wing player was caught.

 

For the whole swearing in first grade example, I cannot tell if you and Wingsfan72 are either attempting to troll me or you just do not understand simple underlying concepts and so I will explain the reasoning behind my post. The whole swearing issue in itself is completely irrelevant to the topic of hockey. The focus of my example, however, is the underlying action "you tell on me, I tell on you" and this concept is directly related to the structure of this thread. Instead of being upset about the call and voicing your opinion to the league, you resort to childish antics by pointing out every other team's questionable plays and belittling Shanahan. Essentially, this is nearly identical to how I acted in grade one. I get caught for something, and then try and call out everyone else to make myself feel better. I am not saying you should stop or anything like that because if this is how you cope, then this is how you cope.

Why can't this be a thread for people to just vent their frustration with the lack of consistency among suspensions?  Who cares if it's due to the fact that a Wing got suspended or not? The fact is, the NHL has been completely inconsistent on the basis of their suspensions.  That statement right there has nothing to do with the fact that Abdelkader got suspended.  

 

On another note; how about Derek Roy's hit on Brad Stuart

Another thing that Shanny missed: that time in elementary school when the teacher explained the concept of consistency.

I'm not trolling you in any way whatsoever.  You can make comparisons to swearing in school, but we can't compare how Abby's suspension is more merited than any of the other s*** that Shanaban just swept under the rug.  That's what this thread is about.  And Shanny has no credibility at all after effectively putting away his whistle after a couple of lame suspensions.  And the hit above by Roy was a 100% headshot that got 2 minutes and no supplementary discipline.  Sedin's butt end swing at Couture... the list goes on.  Shanaban is just a Bettman lackey now that lost his way in the world of hockey.

I started this thread after seeing the Borque elbow. I don't care about the Abdelkader suspension, it's over and done with. I also didn't mention that suspension in the original post. This isn't first grade childishness this is confusion about why certain hits that are such a blatant violation of the rules aren't being looked at.
