Oh, I agree. I was just trying to speculate on the reasons why he did not. I want to emphasize the speculation part, because I obviously have no proof as to what is going on in Shanahan's head.

What I don't understand though, is if you are going to crack down on intentional head shots (which I completely agree with), why not also crack down on reckless hits that cause heads being driven into the boards? It's essentially the same thing.

I don't mind the suspension on Leino but wow Shanahan you ****ing *********, how do you not call a hearing on Gerbe's penalty. Go **** yourself, same exact play that happened with Pominville last year, at least Campbell ****ing game him the ban.

Whatever. I'm not a fan of relying on the league to take care of our business at this point.

Its bull that the league didn't call a hearing, props to ellis for dropping the gloves in gerbe's defense. Feel bad for gerbe he's had a rough few games.

Actually, I'm beginning to agree with this. Some of Shanahan's decisions lately (and his reasoning) really have me shaking my head. At least Ellis stood up for Gerbe here.

Awards:
The comments about "intention" are creeping into Shanny's speaking about these things -- happened with Lucic too -- after he started off with simply dealing with the action. Intent is far too gray an area. Deal with the action and if necessary, the result.
