I find it interesting that people say the NHL only punishes the result. This maybe true most of the time, unfortunately that wasn't the case when Chara decided to take out his rage on Patches. I guess Habs get the short end of the stick no matter what.
That said, I don't know if this was suspendable. The action by itself probably wasn't. However, if I'm Shanahan and I've suspended someone for a dangerous play, and that player comes out immediately and says he isn't going to change the way he plays, and then makes a very similar dangerous play - my response is going to be a little stronger than simply saying "I don't like it".
