1 game during the playoffs is nothing especially when the ****ing guy didn't get the major he deserved.

The NHL has essentially said they wouldn't of suspended him if he got a major.

This is hardly a punishment, he gets a game off and a pat on the back from Tortorella for elbowing a guy to the back of the head.
I agree.

This should have been more than 1 game. The elbow was not that different than the Cooke hit on McDonagh in which he was suspended 10 reg season games and 7 playoff games. I am guessing it is Prust's first offense but it still should have been 2-3 + games at least

It's hard to vilify Prust when Volchenkov tries to spin away from the hit and Prust reacts quickly to get a piece of him. There was no indication that Prust was throwing out his arm or aiming to hit high before Volchenkov spun away so the goon argument fails - there was clearly no intent. Still, it was a dangerous hit and the wrong reaction. The one game suspension is completely warranted.

Volchenkov did not appear to be injured on the play and returned to the ice for the remainder of the game. Brandon Prust has never been fined or suspended during his five year NHL career.

To summarize:
- Elbowing
- No Apparent Injury
- No History

The department of player safety has decided to suspend Brandon Prust for one game."

I think that pretty much sums up what Shanahan is going to say.
boom. solid assessment and no need to waste any of the limited data i have left on my phone from watching all that por...hockey highlights. each of these incidents have the same explanation, just take out one player for the next. The severe, use torres: mediocre, use asham: 1st timer, use prust...star player, use weber.

Just because Torts spews some nonsense doesn't mean you have to parrot it back like its gospel.

It means whining about is useless. I bet 90 percent of you don't even know which play he's referring to and are just harping on because Torts says it exists. What time and period did it happen?

Not to mention there is video of the Parise incident and there was no elbow, so to call an elbow on a play you can't even show me? I'm supposed to believe you?

Deserved what he got...no more no less. No real intent to injure, was a reaction to the probablity of missing the hit. You still can't do that but it wasn't head hunting. Hard nose player, not real dirty, no priors to my knowledge...one game.

Neil hit on Boyle was not a suspension...hit on Alfie deserved a suspension.

Bigger question..why are the refs worse and worse every year.

Pretty sure gullible wasn't the word you were looking for there. But great job.

I'll give you Zubrus' hit. Looks like an elbow. Not even close to as malicious as Prust's hit (up high, but no head contact). Not even the same league, but an elbow nonetheless. That's a two minute elbowing call versus Prust which was easily of the five minute variety. You seriously want that hit reviewed? It's a missed call, and not even close to the worst one of the game.

Prust's explanation for flaring his elbow out is still laughable.

pretty tough to defend this hit. Its the form he took to make the hit that had trouble written all over it.

Only difference between Zubrus hit and Prust hit is that Zubrus hit Stralman in the face and Prust hit Vol in the back of the head. Im 99% sure he opened blood on Stralmans face.

The Parise hit looks dirty to me BUT I havent seen anything difinitive to make a clear decision on the severity to me. Doesnt look horrible.
