I CANNOT BELIEVE that people are talking about this hit. People are doing revisionist history here to try and turn this into an anti-Canucks thing however they can. They're grasping at straws.

Point one: no penalty was called on the play. The United Center scorekeeper didn't register it as a hit! I've taken the trouble to look through all the comments on the ESPN, SBNation, hfboards, and so forth game feeds. NOT ONE SINGLE COMMENT by anybody on that hit by Sedin until AFTER TSN talked about it. When it actually happened not a single person out of all the Canucks haters that think our guys should be suspended if they sneeze even noticed it!

Point two: it was a full-body hit, head was NOT the principle point of contact. There was incidental contact to the head, and it was because Keith was admiring his pass, turned away with his head down. That hit happens every other game in this league! Nobody has been suspended for that all season! The Sedins/Kesler absorb that hit ALL THE TIME and it is NEVER called, not even two minutes...but now, it supposedly justifies Keith's headhunting and should be suspendable?

The media/hockey fan community narrative on this situation is an abomination! The double standard against the Canucks is out of control! Do y'all realize that the last time a Canuck received supplemental discipline was Rome on Horton? KEITH'S ELBOW WAS WAY WORSE THAN THAT! That was a hockey hit that was half-a-second late. This was a deliberate intent to injure on the reigning Art Ross/Pearson winner! Away from the puck, as revenge for a clean hit! That got four SCF games, but people are saying Keith should get less than five? IT SHOULD BE MORE THAN TEN! If it isn't after what Rome got, THAT'S A DISGRACEFUL DOUBLE STANDARD.

I know people aren't happy with the Canucks down at NHL HQ because of some of the things that've gone down over the years (Auger/Burrows, Gillis and Henrik calling out officials now and then) but that's not an excuse to play it one way for some teams and differently for others. If we play Chicago in the playoffs and Sedin is out but Keith is in, what will happen? It will be SUPER UGLY. There's players over on their team like Keith and Toews and Seabrook with concussion issues, does the league want to open that can of worms? They need to step up to the plate here or it will be ugly. They need to have a good long talk with Dan O'Halloran as well. If that game had been in Vancouver there would have been big problems. Somebody needs to lay down the law!

Also whatever anyone says should be the number of games Keith got, he should get one more because he got to play in the rest of that game, and he never should have been in there. We lost our top scorer but they got to keep their best defenceman. So, whatever he gets, add one more (or even two) for the one that O'Halloran missed which cost us that game last night.

I agree with your logic and the fact that it often goes unpunished. When it happened live though I commented to myslef that it could have been a penalty. Daniel was finishing his check and his shoulder ended up hitting Keith's head due to Keith not paying attention and his being short, and Daniel uncharacteristically finishing a check with vengence. I've see the NHL call those both ways, does not surprise me as the NHL is so inconsistent.

It could have been a 2 min for interferance or contact to the head.

Was it dirty or deliberate? Not at all.

Doesn't mean it was 'perfectly ok'.

Blackhawks forum last night was practically calling the hit just as bad as Keith's hit on Daniel. Some of them even blamed the Refs for not tossing Daniel out the game.

Ha...

Daniel's hit was nothing more than a 2 minute minor. A little late.

Kieth's on the other hand, was an intent to injure.

So if Hawks fans even say Daniel's hit was just as bad as Kieth's, they're stupid

It's not as bad as the Keith hit, not nearly. However, it wasn't perfectly clean. A suspension? No. A two minute penalty? Yes.

Think about it from the other side. If Kane hit Hamhuis like that, people on this board would be very upset. Don't try to deny it.

We get to look at it from the other side nightly, this check is delivered to the Sedins and Kesler on a nightly basis with no call. Sure people might comment on it or get angry but at least no Canuck has gone headhunting like Keith did.

There should have been a penalty on that shoulder hit. It was poorly executed.

Edit: A suspension? No.

i wouldn't call the hit completely clean.

2 minutes would be a fair call. The ref elected to let it slide. Probably because that sort of hit is hardly what you would expect from the Sedins. They don't play dirty, not like that anyways. The no call was a reputation call by the ref.
Shootouts are entertaining but they are not worth points!!!

To me, Daniel's hit on Keith was not suspendable. I think it should have been 2 minutes at most.

Daniels hit definitely connected with the head of Keith; although you can tell it was a marginally late hockey hit.

Keith effectively saying "I'm going to get you back" and then elbowing Daniel in the head with the puck no where near is nothing short of serious intent to injure and should be dealt with accordingly.

When are you guys gonna learn that the NHL is corrupt. The sooner you guys realize this the better you'll all be able to handle the disappointment every year.

No, Daniel's hit to Keith was NOT perfectly OK and I'm not full of it. Take off your homer glasses OP. Daniel should have at least gotten 2 mins.

There was nothing really wrong with that hit. He made a bit of contact with the head with his shoulder but you're out of your mind if you think there was any kind of intent there. Keith flat out didn't expect to be hit by a Sedin there and for once, he was wrong about it. He left himself completely vulnerable and Daniel hit him hard and as cleanly as was possible.

should of been a hit to head 2 minute minor, but that is it.

keith how ever i think should have the book thrown at him despite not being a repeat offender. the elbow to the head was clearly the intent. which in turn makes it intent to injure.

It wasn't a clean hit, but it wasn't that bad either. He should have got two minutes, although give him a suspension for I care. Keith essentially gave him a "suspension" of his own.

I didn't like Sedin's hit. Keith's response was worse. Sedin caught him late in the head and it went unnoticed. Who wouldn't be pissed if they got a shoulder to the jaw after the puck and there was no call? Everyone was watching the puck get dumped out of the zone. In NO way was the Sedin check CLEAN. Take off your crybaby glasses.
