I can't imagine any hockey scenario that would see Kronwall having any chance of hitting Cowan.
They're both defensemen. Unless Cowan (who skates like Hal Gill) leads a rush up the boards and gets met by Kronwall, or Kronwall pinches deep behind the goal-line to take a run at Cowan? Never happen.

There's really no comparison between Weber purposefully slamming Z's head into the glass --and then laughing and joking about it with team mates later, for the cameras to catch -- and other less intentional injuries inflicted during the heat of a game, as with the head shot to Datsyuk. Much as I hate that Pasha is injured, I don't believe Cowen's act was as intentional. He might be pleased after the fact that he got away with it, but I am not sure he's smart enough to plan that action out as a way to remove Datsyuk from the ice.
Weber didn't 'deserve' a puck to the face, of course, as retribution for his low-class action toward our Captain. It deserved punishment from the league, needless to say, and didn't speak well of Weber's character.
Does Shanahan skew his judgments, or lack thereof, when a Wing is the victim? Why, yes, it does appear that way. Disappointing.
We hear ya, but a Weber thread here was probably not your best bet. While most here would agree no one wishes anyone a puck to the face, there are many who will be hard pressed to work up any real sympathy for Shea. Pretty much anybody else on the Preds but him. We were trying to figure out a way to get him away from Nashville until his attack on Hank. He cost the Preds a lot of good will around here, and I wouldn't expect that to change anytime soon if I were you.
Yeah,Your right posting this thread probably was not the best idea,but i wasn't looking for symapthy for shea,i understand that y'all dislike weber for what he did to hank,but don't hate the rest preds team for what weber did,they did not play any part in it.
Nowhere did I say the datsyuk elbow should be turned to the law. Maybe your english comprehension sucks but I said that it got me thinking. The fact that they're millionaires just makes it a joke that the league will fine them a measly 10 grand. Fine them 100 grand for these dirty plays and see how they respond. To a guy who makes 4 mil a year, 10 grand is pocket change.
This about sums up my reaction going from your initial post to this one.
Insulting others due to an error caused by your lack of adequate communication is disrespectful. Maybe you should consider how you word your discussions instead of criticizing others.
