Normally I would agree, but if anything, i find this decision adds a little bit of clarity to be honest. Had Larsson stayed upright, Cole doesn't hit his head, he's pressured from behind just like Campoli. At least it's equivalent.

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and not a mulligan because shanny screwed the Campoli hit. I find Larsson's lunge here is even more evident than Campoli's. If Malone wasn't suspended, there's no way Cole could be, not saying it's right, but based on the precedent set, it's the right call.

I'm kinda torn. I think he deserves a game, but so did Malone. I guess 2 wrongs make a right in Shanaban's world.

I honestly don't see how the hit is any better or worse than Pacioretty's.

Shanahan might be even more inconsistent than Campbell.

You're kidding, right? Max went straight at Letang and had a bit of time not to clip his nose off.

I don't know why people are saying the league is being inconsistent in this type of hit. They are in fact being really consistent here. 1. Larsson put himself in a vulnerable position just as Cole was coming across, which we've seen before is something they do take into consideration. 2. Cole hit him in the "free" zone. Did no one watch the Stanley Cup playoffs last year? That type of hit behind the net was let go each and every time. It was present a lot in the Vancouver - Chicago series especially.

Larsson also acted the hell out of it. I didn't realize NJ has so many divers on their team.

In related news (since the Habs play the ruins on Monday night), Lucic is facing a POSSIBLE suspension.

Shanahan is just throwing a mere bone to the starving dog, just so they can have an excuse to have another couple years of nonjustice.

What if Cole went ahead, demanded a hearing with shanahan and blamed himself asking for an auto-supsension...how classy would this be? (besides the fact that he may be hurt from previous game and could need some rest...)

Thought it was good for 2 games. Hope Larsson is okay.

Glad to keep Cole around, but this should've been a suspension.
This is all getting very weird.

Not even close.

Malone had been running people all night, viciously. Honestly, I think he would have hit Campoli in the head even if he had NOT changed position on the play. Still, you don't suspend when there is serious doubt, so Malone probably got away with one.

OTOH, Cole was not acting like a bully all night. His two other penalties were minor bumps and not even deserving of two minutes, especially the second one which should have been on the Devil.

I really don't get how people say Cole should have been suspended nor do I see the Campoli comparison. Campoli though did somewhat put himself in a vulnerable position was in open ice and Malone had plenty of time to react accordingly.

Cole does a routine skate behind the night in no way appears to be trying to hit and then clips the guy in the face. It was in no way malicious and there was clearly no intent involved. How anyone could say this was in anyway cheap/malicious or that Cole went out of his way to hit the kid is laughable imo. It happened really fast and he was cutting around the back of the net doing a routine play...

If you didn't suspend Malone, you can't suspend this one. So, fair enough.

Although If I was Shanahan I would have suspended both Malone and Cole, but that's neither here or there.

Do not get this at all. That was a vicious hit.

I think it deserved a game. It was reckless.
