@NHLPlayerSafety: Alexander Edler suspension video: http://t.co/EV6SgSonhB

@VanCanucks: Statement from @GMMikeGillis on Alex Edler - http://t.co/M2sBKy0JkE #Canucks

---------


Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie
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.

He probably deserves the suspension, question is why were certain other players (Lucic, Nash) not suspended for worse hits?

Maybe he deserved it...but the fact that Nash didn't even have a hearing is what makes this suspension so ridiculous.

Consistency.

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

I agree with him getting suspended (should have one not two), but Shanahan is so inconsistent it's a joke. Lucic did the same damn thing and got off free.

So Shanahan recognizes there was no malicious intent - then why does he still get 2 games?

I realize that Shanahan pointed to the specifics of the rule, that Edler doesn't "make a reasonable effort to avoid such contact"... but where was Edler supposed to go? He was already along the boards and when he realizes Smith isn't moving, he tries to squeeze past him. Obviously that failed as he ended up bringing down Smith.

If Shanahan concludes that there was no intent - then he should have also figured that Edler most likely did make an effort to minimize contact. Plus he tags on 'INJURY' like he always does for suspensions which is the dumbest thing ever. Suspend the act and the intent - not the outcome.

2 games for that shiet?!

Where did Shanaban think Edler should've went in that play?

So to protest this decision, the Canucks should give Shanaban a reason to suspend a Canuck.... Pinozotto needs to lay Poughty out tommorow!

Such.????.Horsecrap.

2 players can barely fit behind the net, as a player you take the boards to try and block the clear.

And of course injury, the video doesn't sound like Shanny or is just me?
