Rome, a valuably needed defenceman since Hamius got injured, was suspended for the rest of the playoffs for a hockey play/hit that was a fraction of a second late.

Boychuk delivers a hit to Raymond that was no where near the play or puck and gets no suspension or even penalty for breaking Raymond's back!

Keith delivers a hit on our best goal scorer in Daniel Sedin that was an obvious intent to injure and gets just 5 games while we lose Daniel for the rest of the season and all but one final game in the playoffs.

And now Hanson, a player who has no history of "dirty" or suspensions gets a game for trying to bat the puck out of the air.

NHL bias against the Canucks keeps on rolling.

Pathetic

The one game suspension was justified.

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.

So many instances. Look what Eager and Buttuglyone used to get away with? And now they're calling swipes at the puck as suspendable offenses? Give me a break and a head shake, NHL. Piss poor. But w/e, we'll survive....we've had to learn to do that.

Just cheapens the whole deal. It's not about good honest sport anymore, it's programmed. It's influenced. It takes the pure joy out of it for me, as it's just one more thing in this world that is corrupt and mismanaged.

Not a biggie...one game. But it's the messages that keep getting sent. Whine on, Hawks....it's working. Unflattering, but it's working.

I keep hoping it sets the bar and that we'll eventually benefit from the stringent rules with our players protected too. Ha. I also hope to win the lottery one day.

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've been a Canuck fan since 2004-05 when the team was going through a huge transition phase, missed the playoffs

Ignorance is so strong.

It's Hansen, first of all. He went for the puck but was careless as hell coming down. It deserved a one game suspension even though he's not a dirty player.

Five games is a decent amount in the NHL. I was expecting 6-7 but I was fine with the suspension.

I'll agree with the Boychuck one, but you're implying it as if the Canucks haven't had a few calls their way.

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!

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.

Uggghhhh.... Spare me.

I'm sorry but anyone who thinks that warranted a suspension either has their head in the sand or is under the illusion that they're watching girls hockey or something... probably the same "hockey" fans who want to ban fighting. Smh. It warranted a penalty-MAYBE- and that's that. End of story.

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.

This leads to a bigger NHL and pro sports issue.... Punishing based on the INJURY rather than INTENT.... Leads to awful suspensions. Shanahan deserves his pink slip... this is almost as bad as giving Torres 37 games for a hit with his shoulder in the playoffs. Awful, just awful.

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.

That was a terrible decision, to not give Giordano more. It should have been more like three games+, that was a brutal play. But I think you're seeing it wrong on their method. Two small-market teams, two players who aren't very prominent, no injuries...no suspension. Two high-profile teams, big rivalry, star player hit by third-liner, major media market, original six...has to be a suspension. Has to be. We can dissect the play but let's not pretend like it's anything other than a smokescreen when Shanny does it, the real decision is made based on entirely different factors. Not being able to say for sure what the intent was, and not knowing for sure what the injury is, that's what limits it to one game.

False. The reason why we lost was because our defense was absolutely terrible. Schneider was the reason why it was close. On top of that, we had no offensive pressure once the 2nd Period started.

I don't even care about missing hansen for ONE game. Big deal. For me it is just another dumbfounding suspension, regardless of whether it was a Canuck suspended, a Jet or a Ranger. I don't really believe in the Canucks bias but there is no question that over the years we have gotten the short end of stick a few times-But guess what? So have most teams.

Personally I'd be pissed that anyone else in the NHL get suspended for that hit, just makes it worse that it was little bit of Jannik Hansen.

I thought Hansen made out pretty good.

Like I said before, Hansen intentionally did it to a lesser degree, he did not expect Hossa to completely disassemble.

Things happen fast on the ice and with the added intensity it was more reckless than malice

Just another chapter in one of the best dam rivalries ever.

If all you are looking for is bias then that is all you will notice, the Canucks/ Bruins SCF had the best TV ratings of the decade, we are the "super heel" in the NHL,

Canucks simply sell tickets

from a business standpoint it makes no sense to hold us down.

People who hate the team actually think its the other way around.

Bad decision, in that split second to think you can change motions like it was described in Shanahan's video, they must have forgotten what it was like to be a player.

On the bright side we know how to get Hossa out of a playoff series if we play them again. Guy is clearly a souphead. AV just has to send out Volpatti (Wiese would never do it lol) to pull a duncan kieth elbow on Hossa-but harder. Sure Volpatti will get suspended but ill take that trade off 7 days a week and twice on sundays.

Not really....Eager and Buttuglyone were a few years ago now. I feel I've been fairly patient in waiting for this big promise of consistency and accountability to take place. We always get the heavy handed side of things and when we're taking the blows, it often goes unnoticed. So yeah, a little tired of it. But don't care anymore, I take it for what it is. A garbage product that my team happens to play in.

i guess this excuse is only permittable when its Schneider. he looked great stopping those breakaways but he should have had the Sharp goal.

should have just been a fine but 1 game i can live with. anymore i would be irate.
