Meh. No problem with this one. May be a little harsh but whatever. At least it wasn't Rinaldo, then it would be a possible lifetime ban.

If he was Kronwall, everyone would be talking about how great the hit was.

Shanny needs to be ****ing replaced..

u CAN clearly see that both of Zs skates do NOT leave the ice at the moment or before contact only 1 does..

this guy has no business being the only say in who/how or why suspensions get handed out.

Two gamed for the infraction.
One for being a no name player.
One more for the Flyers emblem.

I think the lengthy suspension has more to do with Harry Z being a 4th line no body. If lets say I dunno James Neal threw a head shot he'd prob only get a game or something since his production is very important for his team.

I lost all faith in Shanny last year during the playoffs when he believed Neal's dumb*** excuse for launching into Couturier. That should have been a textbook suspension there especially when Neal was running around like an idiot when his team was down. But since Neal is one of the better players in the league he was given a free pass for his actions.

Jamie Benn cross checks Ryan Jones in the back when Jones wasn't looking and Benn only gets a fine. The league is so inconsistent it's not funny.

I think it just completely depends how hungover Shanny is when he does the reviews. It's totally arbitrary every time.

Harry was playing really well, so it's unfortunate that Lundin is such a moron he skated with his head down across the ice.

That Alfredsson isn't getting even a review is a joke, but not unexpected, given the clowns who are running the league.

Four games for a guy who has no history? Man, back when Shanaban played, this hits were the norm.

Exactly, it's a wake up call. If you're going to get suspended for crap, you should make it worth your time/money and really hurt the guy.

Erskine intentionally elbows Simmonds in the face and gets 3 games. Harry Z killed a guy with his head down and got 4. Am I missing something?

I don't think there was much argument that "Z" wasn't going to suspended but 4 games? for a first time offender? and no review for a blatant cross check to the face? That's a tough pill to swallow.

While I applauded these video reviews and explanations at first, I'm almost always left bewildered as to the interpretations of said video evidence.

This is starting to feel like the the Colin Campbell years when his suspensions felt more like mandates on how the Flyers should play the game and who they should put on the ice.

Can we just get a panel of 3 to 5 people to review suspensions? I think that would make everyone a lot happier than just having one individual review these cases.

4 games is extreme.

I really can't believe "Alfie" won't even be fined. That's what really bothers me. I hope zac runs him over next meeting. Nothing illegal mind you just send him into a bench or something then destroy Neil so no one can say anything.

Boy, I miss the days when borderline hits were allowed and using your stick to attempt to injure another player wasn't allowed.

I guess that's what captains do. Wait until your team is down by a goal with 8 mins left and then take a major for being a clown.

Classless Alfredsson
Like I said in the locked thread, guys remember **** like that. We play them again

Ridiculous. If he wasnt a flyer there's no way he gets more than a game. In reality the major and game misconduct was all that was necessary.

Rinaldo would of been suspended if he used his stick on Alfredsson.
Lundin comes into the offensive zone head down, crotched over and he got blasted. This is nothing more then a 2 minute minor for charging at the most if Lundin wasnt stupid coming into the offensive zone. Z is barely 5'11 and Lundin is 6'2".
Im not really that pissed off at Alfredsson. Rinaldo was getting under the skin the whole game of the Sens until the frustration boiled over and Alfredsson took a stupid penalty with the game on the line.

Shanaban is consistently inconsistent with his rulings. He is a joke and needs to be replaced, preferably with a committee or panel of people. That Neal suspension last year, still gets me. That excuse used was such a lie, I bet even a young kid could tell. How does a grown man believe that?

To me it looked like an upper chest hit, Though it was clear Z was in the process of leaving his skates just before or possibly during the hit. The Flyers broadcast or at least Jones said it was borderline. Now Z will be targeted by the refs and will probably have to change.

4 games? Where the **** is the consistency?

Last year Keith was suspended only 5 games for his retaliatory elbow to the head of H. Sedin. I don't think Harry's play was even remotely close to how vicious Keith's play was and yet he gets one game less than that.

Whatever, 4 games is pretty harsh considering Harry Z has no history, but what's done is done I guess.

I could see while watching the game that he jumped off the ice to hit him in the head. I don't know how so many people here think it wasn't a charge/hit to the head.

Like it or not this was a charging call. 4 games is about what i expected.

I think players should get harsher penalties if they're a fourth liner with only a few games under their belt in the NHL. Just makes sense, i'll miss harry i guess though.

I think the exact opposite. All players should be held to the same standard regardless of what their status in the NHL is.
