This pretty much says it all except the NHL being bush league. The NHL still has the best players in the world, is the best league in the world, it's just run by a bunch of monkeys.

I can't understand this gibberish, compared to Keith's flying elbow Shanahan should've gave Hansen a lolly-pop and sent him back to AV.

While I agree that Keith should've gotten a much harsher punishment, I still believe Hansen's one game suspension is warranted.

Hopefully now it sets a precedent for future suspensions.

Yah, your too whiney. Your experience in the past is clouding your "vision" of the present. Hansen re-concussed Hossa. Pretty big deal. So all those plays you mentioned vs Boston were terrible and sucked, they have nothing to do with this. Although I dont think Hansen did it on purpose, the one game suspension is a gift. He could've got worse. Dont let sour grapes ruin your love of the game. Sh*t happens!

The Chicago announcers also claimed Hansen deliberately slashed Bolland in the last game.

For goodness sake. That is all but a myth - for the record, this was the first time any Canuck player got the "Shanaban," and for only one game.

I will agree though, Boyachuk should have gotten a suspension after Raymond's injury.

Still, that one hit didn't cost the game... AV's decision to go with Schneider, instead of Luongo, cost handing the Hawks their first regulation loss of the season.

NHL suspensions appear to be no longer about precedence, but seem to be looked at on a case by case basis.

Typical of this league, although Shanahan did raise a good point about the closed fist thing.

One game doesn't matter, it's just Shanny throwing a bone to a big media market. There's no need to flip out about it, take the long view. What if Hossa is done for the season what then? If you say NOW that one game is too long, how can you say LATER that we got our just revenge for the Keith cheapshot? All's I'm saying is, don't put yourselves in a position where you have to change your tune and end up looking stupid/hasty.

First thread i read about the suspension so I apologize if this has already been brought up but how the hell can they suspend Hansen after only fining Giordano for a SLOOFOOT! (Que Burrows: ITS A SLOOFOOT:p)

His sloofoot (slufoot?) was WAAYYY worse then Hansen's hit, with malicious intent. Just because his victim had the smarts to keep his head up, Giordano escapes suspension. Sloofooting is one of the most dangerous plays in hockey.

Redundant idea that makes us look like whiners.

1 game? Oh noes!

Just be glad that it wasn't one of OUR guys going down again.
