Stranger Danger 03-03-2013 03:23 PM

LOL! borderline hit gets you 4 games? ok.....

SuchySays 03-03-2013 03:24 PM

lmfao.. what a crock of ****

DayoftheGreek 03-03-2013 03:27 PM

Well that is a little longer than I expected...

Victory5 03-03-2013 03:27 PM

Worst part about this is that we have to watch knuble again

dingbathero 03-03-2013 03:27 PM

Alfie gets 4 for intent to injure too right.....:sarcasm:

Jordan941 03-03-2013 03:27 PM

Eh, the hit should cause a suspension, but 4 games is a bit much...

JVR21 03-03-2013 03:28 PM

I truly don't know what they saw. Can't wait for Shanaban's explanation of this one.

Stranger Danger 03-03-2013 03:28 PM

Where do I watch the mysterious and always questionable Shanaban's video of this call/?

4 games because Shanahan got angry trying to type his name in the report.

AaronTrieu 03-03-2013 03:30 PM

Shanny sucks

MountainHawk 03-03-2013 03:32 PM

4 games seems a little high compared to others this year, but I will never ever complain about suspensions for hits near the head / while off the skates. Hits like Harry Z's need to be out of the game.

bp spec 03-03-2013 03:32 PM

4 games huh? I just watched the video explanation and I started to wonder how many games he wold've gotten if he was a repeat offender.

Krishna 03-03-2013 03:38 PM

And alfredsson gets a pat on the back.

Boy, I miss the days when borderline hits were allowed and using your stick to attempt to injure another player wasn't allowed.

I guess that's what captains do. Wait until your team is down by a goal with 8 mins left and then take a major for being a clown.

Classless Alfredsson

Flyersfan1493 03-03-2013 03:39 PM

A game or two longer than I expected given that Z has no history, but I can't really argue against it too much. It was a bad hit.

They'll never say it, but I'm sure that hit the other night played a factor in the decision. Much like the Schenn suspension, it's a wake up call.

Patrick Division 03-03-2013 03:41 PM

I was guessing 2 but 4 isn't that bad.

That's pretty much my thought too. Having to put Knuble in is the only thing that sucks about it.

Jordan941 03-03-2013 03:47 PM

After watching the Shanahan video, it is pretty obvious that Z launches before contact and makes direct contact with that head. Still would have liked to see 2 games, but it is what it is

LetsGoFlyers1825 03-03-2013 03:49 PM

Come on, guys. Saint Alfredsson can do no wrong.

bennysflyers16 03-03-2013 03:49 PM

He was getting suspended, I thought 2, but whatever. Worse is that Knuble draws in , that sucks.

GTopCheese 03-03-2013 03:49 PM

That's pretty much a joke considering the other suspensions/non-suspensions this year.

LegionOfDoom91 03-03-2013 03:51 PM

I actually agree with a suspension here but I want to see more consistency in these things. If Harry Z wasn't a run of the mill type player we probably wouldn't be having this discussion right now.
