I'm sure he sees a bit of himself in Shane Doan, and that's why he chose to engrave Doan's name on this prestigious piece of hardware.

Recognition from your piers, and one of the greatest players of all time, is more important than message board fluff.

It was an interference minor. Whoop-de-doo. It wasn't a check from behind, and there was no head contact. There is nothing for the league to review, and there is no basis for a suspension. The best view of it is at 0:50 of the following video:

I didn't form my opinion on one hit bud.
I made my point in my post a little while ago, few pages back.
Doan is a rookie poacher, I saw him take a run at Yaks in the first and he's been known to do it before. I don't know if he thinks its a right of passage or some dumb **** like that, but he did it to Cam Fowler, except he injured him and put him out for several weeks.
But hey, like you said, whatever it takes to win, like running an 18 year old kid's head through the boards.
