Should have been case closed with no need for investigation as there was no penalty on the play.
It was not a dirty play, not even close to being anywhere near what Cooke did to Savard, and when Max says he is "confused" what he really means is "betrayed".
Of course this is the same justice system that saw the guy who broke his neck and caused him to miss half a season not get a game. Getting compared to Cooke, one of the most reckless and dirty hitters in the game, has got to really hurt.
Insult to injury.
Shanny seems to have intent to hit the head confused with negligence in hitting the head. If its negligence (like tripping or high sticking) regardless of intent then all head injuries should be punished. This would be interesting as prolly players would be judged on the extent of injury ie the result which is far from intent. Its possible that Shanny's views on headshots is evolving.
