The thing that bothers me about all of this is that Shanny admitted that he was trying to knock him down into the net. The play on its own was very dangerous, but consciously trying to send someone into the net is stupid on a variety of levels:

1. The goal posts.
2. Injury to the goaltender.
3. The puck coming in, etc.

I think we can all agree that Shanny should have been penalized. The play was very dirty, bottom line, and to me his admission actually makes it worse. If he was just trying to take him down that's one thing, but purposefully trying to put someone into the net is not a good idea. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.
