Iam thinking 2 games. Unfortunately it meets the criteria. Blind side, hit to the head.

Giving further review to video evidence, as well as considering Shanny's "Rule 48 LEGAL hits examples" and the corresponding language that's used in the rule, I think there's a chance this goes without suspension.

The angle we're being shown mostly is from the side where we see the shoulder contact to the head. That angle is always going to show more of an upward motion as there is nowhere to go but up when making a hit with force.

If you take a quick look at north/south angle that's given on some video right before the contact is made, you notice Hedman sees Kadri and Lupul - has his head up the entire time - and then dishes the puck to his left. His line of site follows his pass and that is where I believe he puts himself in a vulnerable position.

Rule 48 cites possible exception from suspension when "the opponent put himself in a vulnerable position immediately prior to or simultaneously with the hit." I think this situation qualifies.

Another thing Shanny stresses in his video is whether the player who initiates the hit has the intention of making full body contact or not. In such cases, incidental contact to the head may be permitted.

I'd suggest reviewing the "Rule 48 legal hits examples" video where you can see many similar, and much more severe examples, of the Lupul/Hedman hit that went undisciplined.


Fingers crossed as we don't need Lupul out for any period of time.

I did say no games earlier a few pages back, but the timing has me thinking it's a suspension now. No reason for the hearing to have gone this long. Shanny is likely filming a suspension clip for Lupul right now.

I'm gonna guess it ends up being a fine and not a suspension. It can't be no more than a game if he does get suspended.

We should know it soon though.

How close to game time can they announce it? His replacement would need time to prepare.

I'm going to assume that since there's no news - there has to be 0 games, right? it's like a few hours to game time.

Just because we haven't heard doesn't mean the team hasn't.

Shanny must be preparing a three part video explanation for this one.

Holy

McClaren/Hamilton will just prepare as if they're in.

True enough although are things ever kept secret for long in this day and age?
