Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie1m

NYR and FLA have been told by NHL there will be no supplementary discipline for Rick Nash's hit on Tomas Kopecky.






Don't blame the league. He pretty clearly intended nothing. He is a very jumpy player on the ice - was just trying to avoid Fleischmann and ended up clipping Kopecky.

Seriously Shanahan...come on...

Even if they're arguing non-intentional, Jannik's glove to the back of Hossa's head was a much more debatable play with a less severe result, and he still got at least a game.

Hoping this is sarcasm... but as my detector is in the shop atm... watch where Nash is looking... he is locked on and targeting the back of Kopecky's head... My god if this is not suspended and Edler is... I have nothing but :picard: for Shanny... He should have just retired as a player and got into Coaching or something... he is tarnishing his amazing and stellar career unfortunately.

Just wow.

Hansen gets one game for his careless forearm to the back of Hossa's head, Nash gets nothing for an obviously blatant shot to the head.

Shanny and the league's credibility drops even more when you look at the perception of a conflict of interest given Shanny's relationship with Slats.

It's cause Kopecky got up and wasn't injured.

By NHL logic.

"Headshot to back of head to an unsuspecting player" - that's what he said about Hansen - Nash did the same thing....just wow....

Well obviously, Bettman probably wants the NYR to make the playoffs, suspending Nash won't help.

This was a lot worse than Hansen on Hossa. But its Rick Nash, so no suspension.

Coming in from behind, left his feet, and elbow to the back of the head; a textbook headshot if there ever was one. Lupul just got two games two days ago and now Nash gets off scot-free. New regime same lunacy.

Once again,the NHL uses the size of a player's contract as the determining factor for supplementary discipline. If this had been somebody like Andrew Alberts, he would have had the book thrown at him...

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

But its Nash surely we can give a little leeway to an overpaid/overated NY Superstar?

I wonder if the refs would have actually called a penalty on Nash if Kopecky had just lay there montionless for another 30 seconds.

This is a joke seriously... look at nash's left leg it clearly left the ice.... plus the principle point of contact is back of the head/neck... not a shoulder.. i think this is reckless play.. and he should get 1 game banned.. if he didn't then so does hensen shouldn't get suspension either.. nhl is complete joking when it comes to reffing issue.

Are you serious?

The good old NHL, where certain players and teams get a pass and other teams get screwed over. :shock: :picard: :sick:

#NYR Not sure if video explanation coming, but from my understanding the principal point of contact is main reason Nash avoids discipine

After watching a number of times, it does appear Nash doesn't hit the head of Kopecky, but more in the back. Still, it's a bad, bad play and Nash both leans forward towards Kopecky and jumps into him while leading with his elbows and then following through by driving down with at least his left arm/elbow.

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

It more and more looks like he drove his elbow into the back of Kopecky's neck but nonetheless he should of had some sort of hearing

I just lost the last ounce of respect I had for Shannahan and from reading comments around the league (including New York) regarding this hit it appears it is a universal feeling. The handling of discipline has been a complete joke of late and the reputation of the NHL is being tarnished further each time.
