Right, which is why this year Kronwall's hit on Voracek which was clearly leaving the feet and led to some injury wasn't even fined. Shanhan assess the situation and makes the decision. He proved that he is impartial in all matters. Sure the wings got some fines early, but so did the Preds. Tootoo got suspended for running into the goalie when he was clearly shoved earlier in the year also. I think the NHL handled this the best they could. Send a clear message that it won't be tolerated again and let the boys play.
