suck it up and move on.

we all knew nhl is not on nux side.

the important thing is to see how the D core pulls together. Perhaps ballard back in or alberts?

Edler's play has be so so of late anyway, nux can still win without him

I'm glad it's not a forward that we lost.

The league is such a biased joke. So many double standards.

If this hadn't happened to the NHL Coyotes, there would be no suspension.

5 minutes is more than enough for a play like that.

Cross poster from the other thread:

I like how obviously trying to squeeze between Smith and the endboards to retrieve the puck somehow isn't an attempt to minimize contact. He didn't line him up and nail him, he was going for the puck and Smith was in his way. What's he supposed to do? Totally abandon the play and stop on a dime?

Wow! Pathetic.

The five minutes in the box was sufficient IMO
Like another poster said, it makes the Keith suspension that much more of a joke. Big flop by Smith. It's just pathetic.

They didn't even a mention of the fact that the play resulted in a 5 minute penalty, and a goal against in the end... Shouldn't that type of on-ice result also factor into the decision? Also the fact that Smith makes no effort to protect himself and instead makes an incredibly reckless play going behind his net while offensive players are steaming in there?

I'm sick of this crap. I love watching hockey but I hate supporting this league!

I agree. In his explanation he summarizes it as:
- No malicious intent
- Charging
- No prior history
- Injury

Edler already served 5 minutes for 'Charging'. So what? The extra 2 games are because Mike Smith has an injury that is "day-to-day"?

This league is a bloody joke. Anyone who still insists the Canucks aren't targeted by Bettman and his corrupt buddies is a complete and utter moron.

Why are we so shocked? Edler is a Canuck and Smith is A coyote .. you know the team that Bettman's NHL owns.........yeah... there was no way that Edler wasn't going to be suspended. Does he deserve it? No I don't think so, yes he ran into him, and yes he didn't try to stop but come on whee was he suppose to go. Plus you kow there is no consistency around the NHL for these kind of hits. If EVERY player was suspended for running the goal tender then I would just accept this with grace but nope asking for fair officiating is just to much for the NHL. I am super annoyed over this!

He makes himself totally vulnerable doing this. He's done it a few times that has resulted in him being run over. He KNOWS players are on the fore check after the puck that his behind his net. If the league is going to protect him when he does that then he's unstoppable. He can continue to do so and either force players to run him over or stop on a dime as you mentioned. Either way they're probably going to get slapped with a major, a suspension, or both.

A hit to the head? Really? You consider what Alex Edler did last night 'a hit to the head'

I agree with the suspension, prob shoulda been 1 game. Let's not confuse Shanahan's insanely inconsistent discipline with the truth: Edler made a stupid play and injured their goalie. We'd expect a suspension too if it happened to one of our goalies.

I'm actually not terribly upset Edler is out of the lineup for a bit, his D-pay makes me cringe this season. Maybe it'll give him time to reflect on his game a little bit.

Edler deserved the suspension. But let me get this straight.... Lucic can run Miller, and its perfectly fine? Sure. Then there's the Nash incident last night, and there wasn't even a hearing. When you're 6 foot 4 and you jump I guess you aren't targeting the head.... Ok.... The Lupul gets suspended for 2 games, fair suspension but what about Nash? I wonder where Shanahans magical spinning wheel on what to do with suspensions is at.

What happens when a defender pushes a player on the opposing team into his own goalie at high speed, who in turn receives his contact with a glove to the face?

Wow....this was an unintentional hit - careless yes - but it wasn't a Lucic type hit. Edler hasn't been suspeneded before - no different than Hansen on Hossa. Should have been 1 game. Then again, how can us fans expect any consistency in the NHL? Lupul 2, Nash 0, Edler 2. I see a pattern...I guess if Sedin had done it, it would be 0...

To be clear it was the Lucic hit that started this extreme goalie procetionism ball rolling in the first place. It also gave Ryan Miller a soapbox that he refuses to get off of.

brendan shanahan had lost all credibility to me now... The thing that pisses me off most isn't that lucic play from last year but how the frack do you miss Rick Nash's dirty hit??? You wanna make this league safer get some consistency.... This is a joke and so is shanahan

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it
