I think a fine would have been a better option. Shanny doesn't seem to remember that there is an option to fine people. I think he likes the power to suspend people. Power a bit gone to his head. It's times like these that I wish I lived in Europe so I could just watch leagues over there with consistency. When was the last time a fine was sent out? Other than a coach or gm one. I think all fans should have stayed with the boycott ideal that was so strong during the lockout. We boycott so we can see some consistency. (I'm dreaming I know.)


There was a fine on top of the suspension.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Edler will forfeit $35,135.14. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

I have a picture of when he hits him and it's a hit to the head. Look at the suspension video and stop it right when he does the hit, you will see it's to the head


Perhaps incidental contact with the head - but Edler does not target the head. And if he did - you can bet Shanahan would have brought it up in his video.

Ya I do, it's primary contact was the head
If that was Shane doan on Cort Schneider you guys would be saying 5 games

First of all those fines are pocket change to the guys making this kind of money. But I believe the NHL has the right idea of where to put the money, ie the Player's Emergency Assistance Fund (which if I'm not mistaken helps players who have suffered career ending injuries), although there are other charities deserve it more. This is something which the NHL should look into, say taking half the fine for that Player's Emergency Assistance Fund, and then send the other half to help out a local hospital/ charity in the city in which that player plays/ lives in.

What's frustrating is we can't voice our frustrations with Shanahan's decisions so the NHL hears it.

He is very selective as to suspensions and who gets them

If that hit is deammed to be a suspendable hit, then I have lost all respect for Shanny and this Whole joke of an inconsistant league. Shanny would have had his ass chewed out, for not hitting the goalie harder in his playing days. The refs wouldn't have even considered it a penalty. Sorry Canucks I will not be a part of this comedy club of a league anymore. No wonder cheerleading competitions are more popular in the USA, there is more contact allowed. The NHL will never be in the same class, as the NFL, NBA, or MLB until the clowns running this league figure it out. There is no consistancty with anything.
What's a penalty? No one knows anymore. The players are always looking back to see if a call has been made. How is one hit on a goalie suspendable and anouther not?
No Consistantcy. No Support

I'm done

Well, if the exact same thing happened to one of our goalies, now, I would be hoping for a two game suspension.

Before? I would have said "What was our goalie doing behind the net with opposing players coming crashing in on him? Why did he put himself in such a vulnerable position?"

what would be awesome is if the Canucks showed clips on the Jumbotron of Mike Smiths "collisions" before the next game the Ceyotes play in Vancouver. Then repeat one of them at every whistle.
Also get the "Make Some Noise" voice to yell "Watch Out Mike" every time he leaves his crease.
You know we would get fined but it would be worth it.

Failing that the Fans should chant the "watch Out Mike" next game

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.


No one tagged on injury when Mason Raymond had his back broken.

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.


Actually this is far worse and deserved nothing.

Lucic had plenty of space to avoid the contact. Smith on the other hand knew what was coming, and moved almost right up against the boards to draw the contact. You can tell by the way Edler "squeezed up" (I guess you would say) That he tried to get by Smith and bowl right through him.

This league continues to be a joke. If Edler gets 2 for this, Lucic should have got 4 or 5 and Nash should have gotten atleast 3.

If this inconsistency persists, Shanahan should be replaced.

I'm getting sick of all the controversy in sports, not just in the NHL.

I'm trying to see how I would feel if it were the other way around. I think I would have been yelling at my screen to just see one of our goalies start leaving the net with players coming in. But I dont know how I would feel if the hit happened. It's a on the fence thing. Edler was right in the area when Smith leaves his net and Edler does squeeze the boards but he does still make contact and if the shoe were on the other foot I might be a little mad. Then again would it just be"homer glasses"in that situation as well as this one. Tough call.

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.



yeh but I heard on the radio that the hit on miller the first time by lucic was a "first time" incident so shannahan let it go but it happened again by tootoo and that's when shananhan decided to send a message by giving him a 2 game suspension, the same as Edler.

Lucic was not the first player to run a goalie. The Lucic vs Miller hit should have been the precedent setter but no surprise that Shanny let that one slide. :rolleyes:

I couldn't believe he initially got 5 minutes, and I really can't believe that he got two games. Total victim of circumstance. I might have biased vision, but I saw Edler cruising through, unable to get around Smith, not wanting to necessarily stop in his tracks because he's a defenseman 200 feet from his own end, and tries squeezing by while making complete contact with Smith.

The sad part in all of this is that Edler now has a 'record'. The next time anything questionnable happens and gets reviewed, particularly in the playoffs, when Edler is known to drop the BOOM, they'll consider his 'record' in any decisions. LAME

I guess I can just use my post from the Edler suspendable? thread:

Honestly compared to the Shaw suspension, it's reasonable. Compared to the Nash no-penalty-no-suspension, it's ludicrous.



There was a fine on top of the suspension.

That's not in addition to, it's a part of having to miss games. You forfeit your salary from any games you miss as a part of the suspension which is what they're referencing versus any additional fine.

When will the league realize that Smith loves to come out like this and purposely throw himself in harms way, then dive when the contact is made.

We need to establish something otherwise this will open the door for goalies to draw penalties and suspensions like this.
