Hagelin accidentally get alfredsson up high and as a first time offender gets three payoff games.

it just doesn't make sense and as a fan its frustrating.
Apparently Shanny doesn't look at the circumstances leading up to a hit anymore or if the person in question is a repeat offender or known for dirty predatory hits. There are definitely some favorite sons and red-headed stepchildren in this league.

Personally, I would've given Patches 2 games for that hit. A definite hit from behind with an extra elbow thrown in. Very dangerous.
