Shanahan scaling back already?


You have to start wondering if the victim's jersey plays a part in these decisions. I realize this is a homer sentiment, but you step back and you wonder.
Pretty much my thinking. I thought they'd even take a look at Marco Sturm's hit in the Edmonton game on the weekend but that got nothing. So I've officially given up trying to guess how the discipline in this league works, be in Campbell or Shanahan.

Then again though I think we all know who they are.

Either way I do think stiffer suspensions can be part of the solution it just can't be the only solution or it will fail.
One big problem with your post. The NHLPA has a long history of caring about money more than health. They would never do this because of the lost salary implications. It would never fly either for discrimination reasons.

The NHLPA isn't the solution.

lol things like this make me feel that in the rule book, there is rule 66.6 - if player who is recieving the hit is a habs player then no suspension , if habs player dishes hit then regular suspension x 2 applies .

Should we really be surprised after Chara wasn't suspended? No.

Are people THAT surprised? Told you all….he LEANED into it….what a joke. Can’t believe Campoli wasn’t suspended for trying to hurt Malone’s shoulder….Anyway, I’ll blame Subban.

I'm not the least bit surprised Malone wasn't suspended.. I've come to accept the total incompetence from the NHL be it Campbell or even Shanny now..

I guess it'll be open season on Habs players again this year..

It's no tougher than several others that have already been suspended.

May not mean anything, but color me as a Bruins fan completely stunned Malone isn't being punished for that hit. Take comfort in knowing that Campoli is gonna be fine, and that Gorges did you proud by immediately going after Malone.

I thought Shanny was very trigger happy with handing out suspensions (and I prefer that over Campbell's method) but this just makes no sense to me at all.

It seems the nhl thinks that Campoli's head unfortunatly hit Malone's shoulder while leaning forward.

What ******** is that?

I was worried that we were the only ones feeling that way... Maybe our love for the habs distorts our perception of hits and suspendable incidents... Thanks for your input and wish your team nothing more or less than a 9th place in our Conference.

was a tough call to make

1 game would have been sufficient, but the NHL cant be suspending every suspicious hit. Its going to turn into a gong show.

But i fear now that everyone will want a suspension everytime there is a questionable hit.

Clearly a design flaw of the human body. If this hit had happened with any other species, Campoli would be fine. I blame God.

That's the radio station's interpretation, but it's the official line, you have to laugh a bit. All those jokes about suspending Campoli for his savage headbutt to Malone's shoulder wouldn't be too far from the truth.

And it is, but I think not suspending this hit (which I think is worse than some that garnered disciplinary action) negates any message sending to the players that this isn't tolerated any longer.

It's like your screaming child begging for a toy all day. You say no. An hour passes, you keep saying no. Child keeps begging. On the way out of the department store...you cave and buy the kid a toy. It totally ruins the moral. Now the kid thinks it's ok to behave like that.

If they're serious about eliminating headshots, yes they can. Unfortunately, they're not. It was a nice little sideshow while it lasted though, and it would appear we're back at square one.

I didn't see an elbow.

I didn't see a blindside hit.

I did see Campoli without question change his position.

I did see Campoli's head down.

I did see the shot to the head. It was unfortunate and I expected 1 or 2 games suspension so I'm a little surprised at worst. But hopefully Campoli is okay and learned something though. I don't think you can deny he put himself in a precarious situation which seems to be what Shanahan saw too.

Campoli hopefully will do things differently next time. Maybe just chip the puck up the boards with a lead and little time remaining instead have taking the "must of possession and score" approach.

Very true, hadn't really thought of the discrimination factor.
