For anyone that saw it, the Phaneuf elbow tonight was definitely worse than Gryba's hit. The outcome was not as gruesome though and it's also the Leafs so of course there won't be a suspension.

So here's the Phaneuf hit on Paille. I'm surprised this hasn't garnered more attention - Paille was clearly cut because of the hit, and it looks like A) Principal point of contact is the head, and B) Phaneuf leaves his feet right as he's making the hit. Not an obvious jump at the head, but a little 'hop'.

much more of an argument that this hit is principle head contact than the gryba hit.

more LOLs care of the nhl.

Larry Brooks wrote an interesting column today. He thinks Gryba should have gotten more, but to be fair to Brooks, he's been calling for tougher action on any hit to the head for years so at least he's consistent.
What I found interesting is the following paragraph, I think it points to the real issue here.

" Imagine the impact on overall league revenue and on the players’ ultimate escrow losses if the Rangers, Toronto, Montreal. Vancouver and Los Angeles should all go out in the first round."

Teams that do not deserve to advance should not. I don't care about Bettman's revenues.

And Coach's Corner of course didn't display much class showing the headlines either, of course.
I hadn't thought of it that way. The Leafs fan and Bruins fan that pose as Sens beat writers should be thrilled.

It's a political decision

I'm not sure I'm ready to throw the NHL under the bus for money considerations

Let's be honest here, Eric Gryba was suspended: he was having a terrible game and isn't a key player on our team. If we lose the series it won't be because of the suspension.

The NHL lied and broke it's own rules to suspend to Gryba but let's keep cool heads

I think most people are upset about the suspension itself, not who was suspended. We're lucky it was someone like Gryba who can be replaced, but if it was Neil or Smith we'd have more trouble (even though they've been less than stellar).

I'm not a Senator fan, at all. However that hit was not illegal and I don't agree at all with the suspension. But it's hardly to a key player, so really no harm to your team.

Was he supposed to deke away from the guy with the puck?

Apparently the hit wasn't perfect enough and Eller bleeds more than someone with hemophilia so it had to be suspended.

That was way worse than Gryba's hit. Feet way off the ice - contact to the head...
