2011-2012 NHL suspensions tracker

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.

Initial safety video should of got at least 10 games, classless by the NHL

But seriously good idea for a thread IMO, easy to keep up to date. Perhaps you could add in the next game they are available to play in after suspension? Only thing I could think of.

Added Setitio. Haven't heard anything formal yet, but you have to assume they'll be a suspension for that hit.

great idea and nice table formating

EDIT: so what's the over-under on how long this table is going to get????!? We're on pace for 100s of suspensions right?

depends if the Flyers are still allowed to be an organization. Two of the three longest suspensions in this preseason (assuming Sestito will get more than 3 regular season games) will be to Flyers. shocking, isn't it?

Great idea for a thread, hatterson - it's always a pain when a suspension-worthy hit comes up, and it gets likened to a different hit, and you have to trawl through youtube to find a clip of the hit they're referring to. Hopefully this thread can be stickied for quick reference.

Maybe you could add a column to give each play a numerical identifier - that way when the flamewars over whether or not a hit deserved a suspension get started, we can just say "Look at #22 in hatterson's thread and explain to me how this hit is any different!!"

I like the idea of an "Eligible to return" field, so I've edited the table as such:

Not a bad idea at all. I'll add it right now.

I had thought of that but shied away from it because I was afraid of the table being too wide and the formatting going stupid, that was before I reduced the URL lengths though, so I'll add it again and see what happens.

Seriously tho, this is great work, and sure to come in handy around here!

Shanahan is not exactly off to a great start of cracking down on suspensions, if you ask me...

His cracking down on dirty hits seems more effective, though.

Small correction: Calgary plays St. Louis on 10/10 (when Leblond is eligible to return), not Boston.

Also, Sestito was placed on waivers, so his suspension might not be handed down and/or go into effect until/if Philly/whoever claims him calls him up from the AHL.
