The idea of this thread is to compile all of the suspensions, associated videos and threads for easy reference. I'll keep this as up to date as I can. I will also include incidents where the NHL releases a video but does not suspend the player.
All dates are in the format of yyyy/MM/dd for sorting purposes. Only regular season games are counted in the First Game Missed and Eligible to Return columns.
Total Suspensions: 21 - incl. 4 playoff
Total games suspended: 50-53 - incl. 8-11 playoff
*** Torres' suspension is a carry over from the 2012 playoffs. He was suspended for the remainder of the playoffs and the first 8 games of the regular season.
*** Asham's suspension is a carry over from the 2012 playoffs. He was suspended for 4 games, but the Pens only played 3, thus the 1 game is carried to this season.
*** Torres' 2013 playoff suspension was for the remainder of the second round of the playoffs, thus it could range from 3 to 6 games.
And right after the NHL let Shanahan loose with instructions to get very strict. That does not mean that everyone has to like it, but the NHL likely cares more about future lawsuits and the ability to show that they did something as a defense than complaints here. The NHL went through similar in a similar timeframe, and I am sure for many of the same reasons.
1st joke hearing of the season.
Shahaban is still a clown.
Should change name to gone full Homer.
“there is no real me. Only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense that our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there."
According to the referees in that game as well as Sheriff Shanny, yes, it was a clean hit.
As a note, and on a point that's relevant to the overall purpose of the thread.
Simply because Shanahan and the NHL do not issue supplemental discipline, does not mean that a hit was 'clean' or 'legal', it simply means that, if it was 'dirty' or 'illegal', it was not egregious enough to warrant supplemental discipline.
If you are including suspensions that carried over from last season, then you forgot Asham's one game.
