Agreed but the Schenn on Gallagher hit is still pretty fresh and, although one poster joked earlier about Bergevin raising it at the hearing, I would be surprised if Bergevin didn't raise it at the first opportunity during discussions. It would put Shanahan in a decidedly difficult situation. Gally had his back to Schenn and never even saw him coming, unlike McD who DID see Patch coming. Gally was extremely vulnerable and about 4-5 feet from the boards and Schenn crossed checked him across the back driving him head first into the boards resulting in a concussion causing Gally to miss several games. In Bergevin's position, I would definitely have raised it with Shanahan and doing so would be fair ball imo.
