i undersrand the Shanahan explanation. I think there's just a difference between first and principal point of contact. I think the league is tryign to get rid of the principal. in this scenario, i think the head was the first point of contact, while the chest was principal. I still wouldn't have objected had Nolan got a suspension because, like i said, the head whipped violently and it sure looked bad. that and i dont think any hockey player should have to fight the effects of a concussion, so i hope Klesla gets better soon.
