Video says 25 games, any playoff games are counted against it and hes not eligable for pre season games next year.

What?!?!?! Isn't that the longest suspension of the season? One of the longest in history? No way. Strongly disagree.

hahah. shanahan and co. are an embarrassment. i know raffi has a history and hossa was injured, but that hit wasn't that bad. I don't even think he had intent to hurt him. You can usually see when Torres is trying to headhunt someone because you can see him lining him up.


Where is the justice for Keith's hit? frack the nhl. Keith's hit was a blatant attempt to injure.

NHL making an example of someone after everyone has been mocking all of the violence in the playoffs. Scapegoat Torres for a borderline hit. Hell, even James Neal's hit had more intent to injure than this hit. Nea'ls just lucky he doesn't know how to throw a hit properly.

After severly dropping the ball on a few recent hits they scapegoated Torres in attempt to somehow show that "NOW" they are taking these hits seriously. Don't get me wrong - Torres deserved a suspension but 25 games? If that was 25games ( repeat offender or not ) how do you rationalize the 5 games for the hit on Daniel or the financial fine against weber?

wow! his hit wasn't intent to injure! 25 games should belong to Duncan Keith and Zdeno Chara hit Pacioretty to the turnbuckle.

This is just atrocious. Duncan Keith's hit on Daniel Sedin was not EVEN NEAR THE PUCK, there was premeditation, and he was given 5 games conveniently to end the season. Weber takes Zetterberg's face and smashes against the window AFTER THE GAME WAS OVER and was given just a fine. Torres hit was indeed late and deserves a suspension but at least it was within the realm of the play. 25 games is absolutely brutal.

NHLPA will appeal the length....

Ridiculous, at least Torres' hit was a hockey play and not a flat out cheapshot or attempt to injure.

That's guaranteed going to cross over to the regular season...I expected them to throw the book but 25, jeez. Seems a bit much.

Wow......

Supplementary discipline required as he is a repeat offender but bumping Raffi's hit on Hossa into the same category as Bert's transgression is bloody ridiculous, IMO.

That said, the precedent has now been set and Shanahan better stick to it from now on for every subsequent similar on-ice incident if only to highlight the sheer ludicrousness of this latest sanction from on high.

That whole Keith on Daniel thing of deliberate head hunting and lack of adequate sanctions has me infuriated all over again. Not to mention the Weber smashing Zetterberg's face into the boards incident and the mere fine as a sanction.

I can guarantee there would be no suspension if it's Hossa drills Torres.

Nope. he won't. he'll just say this the other player is a 'first-time offender' and that torres had mutliple dangerous hits. Hell ,if they are going to be lenient with duncan keith for a blatant attempt to injure sedin because he's a 'first-time offender' then we are in big trouble, First-time offender should only be applicable to questionable hits, not blatant attempts to injure.

Someone's trying to compensate for blown decisions earlier in the playoffs.

That is a little excessive.

Shanny your a joke! What a gutless pencil pusher he has become. Five games on Keith which was twice as bad, $2500 to Weber for a terrible play which is an absolute disgrace. He doesn't have the balls to do his job if he refuses to punish the so called "stars" of the league. F U Shanny, Torres' hit was late, to the head, but a hockey play no less.

Don't believe it. Way too many games, especially in comparison to other hits/suspensions. Ludicrous.
