2. Most asked question of day: How can Alex Edler get 2 games for mowing down Mike Smith when Milan Lucic got zip for takin out Ryan Miller?

Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie

Love easy questions. This one is a lay-up. Because, after @NHLShanahan didn't suspend Lucic, GMs told him in no uncertain terms he erred

Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie

Lucic-Miller happened days before GMs meeting last year. Result was much higher sensitivity to goalie interference for most of last season.

Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie

Edler suspension was no brainer, open/shut case based on rules and GM-instructed emphasis. You may think goalies fair game but they're not.

Blessing in disguise. He's been awful this season and has earned 2 games in the pressbox for numerous mental mistakes.

Not surprised at all. Only thing I don't like is that worse hits don't get anything. Nash should definitely have a hearing. If not, I'd actually want to hear the Canucks complain about that, because that's just not right.

Too bad his last name isn't Lucic. He would just receive the "You were a bad, bad, boy" speech and be allowed to skate merrily away.

#11 for Phoenix comes in targeting Elders head after the hit. Shanny is becoming a disgrace to the NHL. The bias is disgusting when you look at recent hits not even fined. The hit was worth a 2 or 5 minute penalty but a 2 game suspension harms the image of the NHL as no reasonable person could conclude that the discipline is consistant - fair - or reasonable
