4 games for Kaleta. Not nearly enough frankly.

In the sense that the joke is old, or that all the suspensions are getting old? Either way, no.

Letang commited to the hit before Burmistrov turned around. Imo no suspension

Adam Pardes's picture

Seemed like Burmistrov slipped and thus the check looked worse than it was. Didn't look like he shoved him too hard.

Shahaban disagrees, 2 games.

Agree with Shanny here. Worse than it looks. Henrik turned at the last second & Methot seemed like he tried to let up. Certainly didn't drive him into the boards as hard as he could've. Not to mention Sedin put himself in a dangerous position just a few feet from the board like that...

Milbury is a joke and shouldn't be in anything involving hockey.

What a joke of analyst. He cuts of Jones every time he wants to talk. Loudmouthed idiot is what Milbury is.

I think this is perfect. Shanahan is doing what Campbell never could, he's explaining why the suspensions happen and why they are so long. He uses the NHL rule book in his explanation as well. It makes the fans understand, but most importantly, the players. If everyone is getting these high number of games off due to suspensions, they should think twice of hitting to the head. It protects the players as well. So yes, it should continue and I expect it to.

I like it, but this was the easy part. When it gets to February, March, April, May, when the games actually matter, his job is going to be a lot tougher.

I'm okay with the suspensions. Just goes to show that players can be too reckless with power in making the big hit when it isn't necessary. Shanahan's latest video profiling legal checks showed that you don't need to always hit hard to make the right defensive play.

He's trying so hard to make players afraid of him, he's suspending some people for regular hockey hits. Truly, the NHL is going to stand for the No Hits League very shortly

George Prax's picture

He's setting the boundaries, not trying to make people fear him. That would be a douche move.
