How is this not a suspension? Everything Shanahan has been talking about is on display here. He says "the game is still about the puck". Everything else is obvious. WTF.
See I could understand how he might say Campoli made himself vulnerable. Well yeah, but he did it because he is a DEFENDER and losing the puck.. He needed to reach.
Malone comes in, sees that.. could have PLAYED the puck instead, I mean the play is going on within the Canadiens zone. Not like this is a danger to Malone's team getting scored on, plus if anything, if Malone trys to play the puck, likely he out muscles Campoli and maybe scores a goal.
Still thinking If Campoli stands still, Malone still connects with a head shot, no?
I'm not going to cry my self a river, but I just find it strange since it's clearly obvious. I do hope Shanahan releases a video explaining why he didn't give a suspension.
But people, let's really relax with the conspiracies.
