He certainly could've done better to avoid contact, but Smith was also shooting the puck, spinning his body and head towards Shaw.
Shaw totally hit him on purpose. This ain't his first day in hockey. He could've easily skated up against the boards and around Smith. Good call Shanny.
Three games is an absolute joke. Especially after Lucic got nothing. Shanny has seriously become less consistent than Campbell.
Other than that star players are probably not going to get suspended as long as lower line players. That's been pretty consistent.
