When you listen to Shanny's explanation, you could almost swap it out for Mcleod's hit on Kronwall.

 

The only real difference is that Lapierre was suspended before for a similar hit.  If the league wants to be consistent at all (I know, I know), it seems like Mcleod will get fewer games.  I'd guess three.

 

Similar, but Lapierre hit him from behind, but not in the head, add a couple games for the head hit for sure

I don't even really care how long he gets suspended, it doesn't affect us one bit going forward.

I would say 5 games maybe a few more given he hit him in the head.

 

douchebag announcer that said giving him a taste of his own medicine, should be fired. i think he pissed me off more than the hit

Why is the meeting almost a week later?  Don't they usually do them before the next game they are supposed to play?

Going to be at least 5 or he wouldn't have been given an in person hearing.

Scheduling maybe? But that is what the interim suspension is for, to make sure he doesn't play in any games before the hearing. So he is for sure getting at least 2 + whatever Shanaban hands him at the meeting.

Also, Kronwall wasn't off-balance. Though ultimately that might not mean anything.

The in-person hearing means it *could* be five or more.

 

I believe if the suspension is going to be longer than 5 there HAS to be an in-person hearing, but it doesn't necessarily mean McLeod WILL get 5 or more. 

Shanny and crew may ultimately decide that the hit doesn't warrant that long of a suspension.

 

I think he'll get 5.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

My guess is he'll get "time served", so zero extra games by the time the hearing comes around.

 

Who reallyf****** knows though with the wheel of justice.

He wasn't off balance but I meant that there will probably be a similarity in how Shanahan views Kronwall's stop and turn. 

 

Kronwall put himself very low and it contributed to a more violent result but as Shanny mentions in the Lapierre video, that doesn't take away all responsibility from the hitter.   If Lapierre didn't hit Boyle illegally, Boyle doesn't smash his face into the dasher even with the stumble.  Same with the hit on Kronner.  Kronwall may have put himself in a low position that resulted in his head hitting the dasher, but that still wouldn't have happened without the illegal hit from behind by Mcleod.

Rather than let up when he saw Kronwall was vulnerable, this douchbag made damn sure the hit was as absolutely hard as he could make it... It doesn't get any more serious than this but saidly, I don't think Shanny has the stones to go more than 3-5 games.


Finally someone that can post with actually integrity, nice to see. :thumbup: --Carman

Weird that they're taking their sweet time with this one.  I think Mcleod is going to miss a game before he's even suspended because he has a hearing pending.

Agreed. This is on the hitter, not the one being hit - even if he did put himself in a bad spot. Mcleod HAS to let up, and he didn't. I'm sticking with my prediction: six games.

I can't believe it hasn't happened yet. Is Shanny really that busy?
